The Good: The computer over all is a powerful and snappy laptop with a beautiful display. After removing the bloatware and allowing for Windows, Asus software, and driver updates; boot times vastly improved over the out of the box operation speeds. The GTX 960M graphics card was able to keep up with both Dark Souls 3 and Quantum Break at 1080p Max settings really well, without dropping below 30 frames (while plugged in). Quantum break was also playable at 2556X1440 Resolution. The screen is to small to detect any difference between 2k and 4k Resolutions. The built in 4k monitor operates at 60hz; however, dropping it below 4k does not increase the monitors refresh rate (for those wondering). The keys feel great with a proper amount of travel and responsiveness ; however, my palm did tend to hit the track pad pretty often which I will delve into later. The battery life is surprisingly good for a rig of this caliber, with my longest stent without a charge being close to 7 hours (under normal internet browsing usage). The Aesthetics of the Asus Zenbook seem to carry the classic Asus brushed aluminum look with exception of the spiral pattern on the keyboard, which appears to have no purpose whatever, aside from looking pretty cool. Overall the Zenbook is a great laptop with all of the top specs for future proofing, especially with its Thunderbolt 3 port capable of 40gbs transfer speeds. Be on the look out for eGPU enclosures and other docking stations that will take full advantage of the Hardware!
The Bad: As mentioned earlier the trackpad definitely cost Asus a star on this review. Not only is the location poorly thought out, landing almost directly under my right palm while typing, but the overall build quality is lacking as well. The track pad on my laptop appears to be installed to close on the left to the chasis, causing the left click to stick on occasion. Gestures are ok, but the built in Asus Smart Gesture software is lacking customization. Overall, the touchpad is usable and functions as it should.
Closing Notes: I must admit I do have a bias when it comes to trackpads, and hands down Mac has the better track pad. However, Asus won over my affection in every other category. Without comparing software and aesthetics (which are always up for debate) the Zenbook is faster, lighter, better graphic performance and operates much more quiet. Previous Laptop Mid 2012 Macbook Pro, Retina, 512 SSD, GTX 650M. I would definitely recommend this computer to anyone looking for a computer with the capability of running graphic intense programs/ games, and the versatility of taking it anywhere.
Make sure you hit "YES", if you think this review was helpful!!!
-4K screen: Not something I thought I would need, but after using it for a couple of days, it was almost painful to go back to my old 720p screen.
-Hardware specs: i7 processor, 500 GB SSD, 16 GB RAM: This is high-end stuff, and it shows in the performance of everyday tasks and heavy computations. Applications start up super fast, and run smoother than butter.
-Thunderbolt 3.0 port: Speaking of future-proof, from what I read this is going to be the port of the future. It's super fast, can provide tons of power, and is idiot-proof (you can plug it in either way). This is basically the PC response to Apple's lightning port, and it's pretty dang cool.
-Form factor: I've always loved aluminum-body laptops, and this one is thin and sturdy. The bezel around the screen is large (about 0.75" - 1.0"), which makes the entire body bigger. It's not the size of a 17" laptop, but it feels solid on your lap. It's weighty, but not heavy, which is perfect for me.
-The battery: This thing has a 96 Watt-hour battery. Do you know how big that is? It's huge! I have yet to run a full battery test, but according to online reviews, this lasts between 6 and 8 hours of normal use.
-Heat management: I have yet to put this thing under heavy stress, but the bottom gets comfortably warm streaming 4K video or under medium-level tasks. Asus's promo materials talk about some pretty top-level thermal management inside, and the aluminum body helps dissipate even more. I don't see this laptop getting uncomfortably hot on your lap, except maybe on some of the hotter summer days.
-Gaming graphics: The graphics card (GeForce GTX 960M 2GB graphics card) is pretty near the bare minimum for 1080p gaming these days. I ran the Heaven 4.0 test on this laptop, and it was putting out about 30 +/- 2fps at high settings in 1080p. Forget about using the 4K capabilities of the screen for gaming. If you're not a gamer, this is not an issue, as the laptop is capable of rendering any image you throw at it otherwise. But for future games, this thing is going to struggle at high settings.
-User-modify-ability: The case is sealed shut, and even if you do get it open, the important bits are all soldered in place. There is no user access to the battery, graphics card, processor, or solid state drive. This means you can't upgrade any hardware over the life of the laptop. Fortunately, you start with some of the very best available today. Note: most other aluminum-body laptops do not let you access these things either.
Other things (not pros or cons):
-The speakers: The speakers are pretty blah. They're not worse than your average laptop, but Asus hyped them up too much. They're pretty weeny compared to what I was expecting.
-The number pad: Others have complained about the number pad, saying it was too skinny. It really doesn't bother me, and I use the number pad pretty often.
-The touch screen: The whole idea of a touch screen on a laptop is a novelty, in my opinion. It's fun, and it can be useful in a couple of circumstances, but I would have preferred a cheaper computer with a regular screen. Oh, well.
-Backlit keyboard: Not an exclusive feature, but still nice to have when typing or gaming in the dark. Note that it is dimmable.
-The glossy screen: Others have complained about the screen being so reflective, it's almost mirror-like. While I would agree, it's not something that has come up. Unless you're watching a very dark movie, or using the laptop outside in the sunlight, you're not going to see your reflection. It hasn't bothered me at all.
-The placement of the right arrow key is funky. Because it is aligned with the number pad, it's spaced farther out than the left arrow key is. It's not horrible, but it is very weird.
All in all, this is a very good laptop. I am pleased with my purchase. I paid a hundred less than the MSRP, for some unknown reason. Since it's the most expensive thing in my house, I also purchased a "drops and spills" protection plan, which I would recommend. I recommend this laptop to anyone looking for something that's sturdy, powerful, and pretty. It's all of those things. There are two reasons I gave it four stars instead of five: The graphics card is pretty weak for gaming, and there is no possibility of upgrading anything inside. If you're ok with both of those things, this is a stellar laptop.
Edit 8/31/17: I have to point out, though this laptop has served me well the last year or so, and I still like it, there is a glaring issue that I haven't been able to resolve. EVERY TIME I put it to sleep, it wakes up randomly later. No prompting, no movement, no touching the trackpad or the keys. It just wakes up. I'll look over and the light will be on indicating that it's awake, doing nothing. The screen stays off, but the battery drains. Every time I leave it unplugged, it drains down to about 5% before it goes into hibernate (from "sleep"). For the life of me, I can't figure out what's waking it up.
