Since Asus uses customized hardware, you aren't able to use the intel drivers, and depend on asus to fix driver issues.
Big rabbit hole!
Most of the cool features of this laptop only work on Windows. Along with mousepad tracking issues, you will notice random interrupts, even when using Windows.
After dealing with ASUS, I regret this purchase.
ASUS customer service was unhelpful at best, clearly didn't take the time to address the concerns on my email.
They also said that many of the features and drivers (such as Alexa voice functionally, or even their software update utility "My Asus") do not work with a fresh Windows 10 installation (a image without ASUS modifications), then offered to provide (FOR PURCHASE) a recovery medium in case I needed to re-image the computer.
That being said, while this is a beautiful computer and the functionality and design is as promised: sleek, cool, etc., given the issues I've had technically with my device, these extraneous details come across now as merely gimmicky. I purchased the laptop, swapping it out for my gaming laptop, as I now travel for work and needed something lighter and with much better battery life. However, even turning all of the settings down and close all other applications, the longest I've gotten the battery to last while using just Word is just under 4 hours, only an hour longer than my old gaming laptop. Dissapointing certainly, but not a deal-breaker.
About two weeks after purchase, I arrived at work and began using the laptop for extended hours which is where many of my issues began to arise. At no point would I have more than 9 applications running, or 5 windows open (active applications). And yet, after perhaps 2-3 hours, performance would drop drasticaly. CPU usage never exceed 55% and yet the processing speed of the device would make it unusable. The applications I use for my work; Microsoft Office, Edge, Creative Commons; none have particularly heavy drains on the CPU or memory (save the browser of course, but if it can't run a browser then..). Throughout a work day, I may have to power down my computer twice and let it sit for a few minutes to cool down. This comes as odd given the fan which actually keeps the computer relatively cool. This was mildly irritating but I was stubborn so I looked for solutions.
Then, recently about 4 days ago, the CPU seemed to give out entirely. To avoid having to reset my entire pc while abroad, I've had to all but suspend all start-up applications and boot-up and then close all necessary applications. Due to my modifications, the machine runs about similarly to how I described above. However, the start-up process I have to go through (especially when I went out of my way to purchase a computer with a SSD) is just annoying lol. What irks me is that this deterioration comes "conveniently" 3 days after my return policy expires. Not really making any accusations here, but sheesh, frustrating.
All of this being said. If you're looking for a cool looking computer and all you do is write, and watch videos for short bursts of time, I guess I can recommend this computer. However, as they advertise it as a 'light' work computer, I must put the emphasis on the 'light' part. It cannot really handle any tasks that need much computing power and can't handle any tasks for extended periods of time. For that reason, as I swamp through the process of warranty redemption, I can't personally recommend this particular machine.
(I acknowledge though that my device may be an exception though).
