I've had this laptop for over a month now. Agreed with most of other reviewers. Light weight 4.4 lbs, backlit keyboard, aluminum finish on top cover, I7 CPU, 8GB of DDR4, 512 GB SSD. Screen is not IPS but matted and 1080P.

I already upgraded the bios twice. Just follow the steps in eManual. You can find the eManual under Start, All Apps, ASUS, eManual. If you are not comfortable with bios upgrade, don't do it. As you may turn your laptop into a brick.

Battery life is good. I got on average 5 hours of watching Hulu or Netflix. Surfing the web maybe 6 hours. Based on some battery experts' discussions, they suggest not to completely drain or fully charge lithium battery. They said do it between 40% - 80% will prolong the life of lithium battery. I've been trying to do this. Hope the practice will make the battery lasts for years.

I confirm that this laptop came with 1 stick of 8GB DDR4 by running CPU-Z (a free software you can download to monitor and show PC hardware components). As shown in the Before Upgrade picture below, it is a single 8 GB DDR4 and the motherboard is running Single Channel with 15-15-15.

Since I will be doing video editing with this laptop, I started researching if it is possible to get another brand of 8 GB DDR4 stick to make it 16GB and Dual Channel. The answer was as long as the DDR4 stick has the same specs even if it is different brand, the motherboard should run as dual channel. Some discussions from Tomshardware say for some memory intensive programs, Dual Channel can have up to 20% increase in performance.

Found this crucial DDR4 8 GB stick on Amazon:

Received the ram yesterday.

Style Name: Laptop Only Verified Purchase
I have had this computer for about 2 weeks now. I LOVE it. I will first admit that I am Asus bias. Purchased my first Asus laptop in 2010 and have been happy with them ever since. I will also say before I purchased this laptop I did shop around and look at other brands, mostly Lenovo and Samsung. Once again, I went with Asus.

This computer gives you so much bang for your hard earned dollar. I was looking at the new Asus Zen Book Pro (which is also a really nice machine) but I didn't need the 4k screen and the Skylake 6700 processor is sweet but the 6500 is just fine and snappy. I could not get over the price of this laptop with the specs.Now onto the meat and potatoes.

I read all of the reviews on this laptop before I purchased it and the one thing that kept coming up was the screen quality. It made me a bit hesitant to purchase since I wanted to use this computer for video and photo editing, web design, business and storm chasing. The matte screen for my needs was a plus since most computer screens are now glossy, I prefer the non glare matte finish. When I have my computers mounted to my RAM vehicle laptop mount the glare from the outside is insane, this prevents that, but most of you reading this won't be doing that! The screen quality is just fine! I really enjoy it! Some of my programs had fuzzy text and that is not due to the monitor but mainly to DPI settings. If you have that problem just make a desktop shortcut, right click, properties, go to compatibility, then select Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.. Problem solved. If you use Chrome for your browser some text will appear really small and the format to the screen will appear smaller than usual. Go into your advanced settings in chrome and select font size medium and page zoom 125%.

Alright just a brief summary first and I'll get to the pros and cons. I've used this laptop a few days, and I've got to say, I've probably never liked a laptop more than ever. It's light, fast with regards to opening programs and boot time, its got a nice big ssd, room for upgrades like a 2.5in hard drive and 1 SO-DIMM 2133mhz 8gb stick of ram to make this a 16gb ram laptop, but I felt the keyboard was a bit wierd because of the key texture, the size of the numpad numbers (i use a pin for my windows log in and just used to the regular sized keys) and the cooling could be better gaming wise. The reason the cooling configuration could be better because when you're gaming the gpu and cpu are throttled. This is fixed with either a homemade standoff with the laptop or a laptop fan stand. And other than that, the touchpad, bluetooth, wifi and everything else was pretty good.

So here it is, the Pros:
Its light, you can have it on your lap and it wont heat up (major bonus points because I would love to have a non heavy laptop that you can game on the desk, but also use on your lap for less intensive stuff, its upgrade-able and the touchpad, it feels good and pressure you need to click is just right. Oh and the back panel is easy to remove, and its held on by clips after the screws so be gentle when removing the back panel.

The Cons:
Throttling due to low rise of the laptop through its rubber studs, the screen is not an IPS or higher quality, the ram is soldered, and the solid state drive has a capacity of only 476gb instead of being near 512..... and the back panel has so many screws....

Also soon i'll be posting some framerate tests for some modern games and some classic favorites (skyrim, fallout 3, etc) on my channel, aswell as a review: Just look for Wyrless Freequincy

Edit: Its confirmed that this laptop does indeed have ddr4 ram.
