There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Sadly, my unit didn't last long. I just began using my 3-d softwares and new code IDE's for C++ and this thing blue-screened every 5 minutes or so. Sometimes I was lucky and it'd work nicely but just today, the drive slowed down to a near halt and as windows tried to repair or reset it, it just died. I now boot into the bios everytime with no storage or boot-detection of the ssd. What a brilliant time for it to die. Also for battery life, turning off the keyboard backlighting litterally gave me 9+ hours of battery-life. Sad to see it go.
Please check comments to this review for more. With all due respect, I won't be updating anything in this review or responding to any of the comments published beyond this date. I hope I was able to help anyone with their purchase.
(Ryzen 5 3500U, 8gb model)
SUMMARY (2400mhz RAM only runs @800mhz off the charger AT ALL TIMES) (ONLY 1 RAM SLOT)
First things first...
Advertised at 2400mhz: with descriptions, reviews, and answers that are misleading. First thing to know: upon contacting ASUS, there are two possible motherboard configurations: one with 4gb of soldered RAM paired with a 4gb SODIMM, and a configuration with NO onboard RAM, and one 8gb SODIMM. I bought an extra RAM stick hoping to boost up to 12 GB only to find out I had the MB configuration NOBODY WAS TALKING ABOUT.
So you can imagine, as I’m about to add this sweet 8gb stick: there’s already just a single 8gb stick in the slot making the upgrade redundant.
Next, I decided to install CPU-Z to see what the hold-up was. I noticed the laptop was a bit slower than I expected for the specs when it wasn’t on the charger, and let’s be forward here the only reason anyone BUYS a laptop is to use in portable situations hence the expectation of full performance away from the plug. Anyway, upon installing CPU-Z I noticed a few things off about the RAM. First off, it ran at a native 1866mhz when plugged in UNTIL you do something that requires an extra push, at which time the RAM ramps up to the advertised 2400mhz. Secondly, I checked with the cord unplugged to find out the RAM was running at an APPALLING 800mhz. The ASUS spokesperson said that it was an expected feature and not a defect.
What makes things worse: I know how RAM modules work. A single SODIMM draws such a small amount of power, that revving it down to a speed equivalent to that of a mid-tier DDR2 module is unacceptable! Just another factory implementation of a throttling method to force people who get their PC for a bargain to regret making the right decision.
To make matters EVEN WORSE: this model comes equipped with a Ryzen 5 CPU. *What’s wrong with that?* What’s wrong with that is this: Ryzen CPU’s by design, are relatively dependent on the onboard RAM. MEANING: Slower RAM = Worse CPU performance.
So, RAM that performs at 1/3 of the advertised speed, (2400mhz is just OKAY for RAM in the first place) a single RAM slot with no option for dual channel, and a CPU that WILL perform slower as a result make this PC perform at the $150-$200 range when away from the charger.
BUY SOMETHING ELSE FROM ANOTHER BRAND
The one plus= The nice screen-to-body ratio.
When opening the case there are no hidden screws.
It has a single stick of DDR4 RAM
It uses a PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD
Pictured are the upgraded SSD and RAM

You can ADD any 2.5 inches HDD or SSD into this little beast! U can also replace de 4 gig dedicated ram to a 8 gig ram if you want to ! The ssd is a Kingston and Ram is Samsung. Great great great product. Asus really pushed quality on this one.
-Great value on sale at about $600
-Fantastic IPS 1080p screen with wide viewing angles and little graininess
-Thin and light for the size, tiny footprint and bezels
-Great CPU and GPU performance for the price
-FAST WiFi and SSD drive, equal to much more expensive options
-Decent speakers with good sound and bass
-English Keyboard, not bilingual
-Keyboard is backlit nicely
-Touchpad uses precision drivers and is made of glass
-Chassis is surprisingly solid for the price
-HDMI 2.0 is included, pushed 4K 60Hz with 8 bit color perfectly
-No glossy surfaces to soil and get scratched up
-Comes with accidental damage warranty (1 year) out of the box
-Short battery life ~4.5 hours under normal use makes this not very portable, luckily power brick is small
-Sound is distorted at high volume and the chassis rattles
-Backlight bleed on the otherwise fantastic screen
-Fan has an annoying whine when under load
-Soldered on 4GB ram module, if you upgrade its a weird 12GB configuration
-2GB ram permanently allocated to the Vega GPU. Expect only 6GB usable ram out of the box
The laptop is very fast with the NVMe M.2 SSD, with a disk benchmark, I was able to reach 1.6 GB (that is gigabytes, not gigabits) read speeds per second, and 900 MB/s write speeds per second.
I got this on sale, and for under $600, a Ryzen 5 quad core, 8GB DDR4 ram and 256GB SSD, it is excellent value. Not to mention the great feel of the chiclet backlit keyboard.
The performance of the Vega 8 integrated graphics, is better performance than any Intel integrated graphics would be. The fans is a little audible when running HD video or more intensive tasks, although still very quiet.
The battery life is average, although it can be a little bit above average if you set your settings to battery saver. Still, it should last a few hours at the least. Just a quick note, there is 6GB usable RAM rather than 8GB, as 2GB is permanently allocated to the AMD Ryzen Vega 8 GPU. Also, when first turning on the computer, there is noticable backlight bleed on the bottom two corners of the screen, while the screen is on though, the screen has good picture.
The pictures for this laptop does not do it justice, I was pleasantly surprised when I received the laptop - the laptop looks better in person than it is advertised!
All in all, this is the best laptop one can get for the price, hands down. Definitely recommend it for anybody who is looking for a laptop that won’t put a dent in their wallet. Good job Asus.
+ Disque SSD rapide , démarrage au complet en 5 secondes ( avec ouverture de section )
+ Design agréable
+ Emprunte digital
+ Clavier fluide à la frappe
+ Écran assez fade à la vue ( pour ceux qui sont habitués à voir les écrans de haute qualité )
+ Batterie relativement bon ( 5 à 6h max d'autonomie )
+ Quelques logiciels preinstallés .
+ Sur 8 giga de RAM , seul 6 giga sont utilisés par les applications ; 2 giga sont réservés d'avance pour la carte graphique . Prévoir une barrette de 16 giga pour combler un manque éventuel de mémoire.
