14" is great
8565U + 16GB is great
Immediately after using this computer in the first hour I noticed the trackpad issue. The mouse will jump around and speed up, then freeze for a second, then move again. This repeats constantly and sometimes lasts minutes. If you were doing anything intensive with the mouse, you can forget being able to use this laptop. Games, drawing, even drag and drop are nearly impossible.
The computer came installed with Windows 10, sure, but also a TON of other software. I thought that was making this machine slow and I wanted to erase everything down to a simple windows 10 install with nothing more but had issues with the usb boot disk getting to boot from the bios. After wrestling with windows for 8 hours, I gave up on my dualboot intentions and just erased the whole thing and installed Antergos linux. The trackpad issue remains a problem and really gets in the way of my productivity.
After searching and reading more reviews specifically about trackpad performance, it seems that Asus laptops have this issue across all of their Zenbooks going back to 2011. The only fix I've seen suggested is to remove the casing and tape a piece of tinfoil between the battery and trackpad. I think I'd rather just return the laptop and get my $1,500 (included 4 year warranty).
There are plenty of other comparable machines at the $1,200 to $1,500 price point. I can get myself a MacBook Air for that price!
However, the trackpad has SERIOUS issues. The trackpad will lag at the worst times and make the cursor jump around like crazy. It works most of the time, but the lag will happen every 5-10 minutes. Get a wireless mouse and save yourself the trouble.
If you can deal with a buggy trackpad, this is the perfect laptop for you.
UPDATE: There is a fix below in the comments that helps make the trackpad work much better.
Also personal fixes I did that helped:
* Turned off anything to do with tapping (single, double, multi select taps off)
UPDATE 2 - I didn't update this for a while, however there is a firmware update released months ago for the trackpad and now there's no issues, so +1 star for me. Also, for Linux users - I run Ubuntu on this in dual boot and it works great. The numberpad doesn't work though and I doubt it will in the forseeable future.
I've always been a big Asus fan, so when these sleek, new, uniquely hued, machines came out just as I was seeking a replacement for my 6-year-old previous ZenBook, I jumped at the opportunity to buy one. SO very glad I did, because this is such a lovely device. I was a little skeptical of the color and new build, but it has certainly grown on me, and I get compliments frequently.
Perhaps the hardest thing to get used to, and maybe a con if you're a big accessories fan, is that with the tiny bezel around the screen, there's no need for much vertical length on the machine, so it's *much* more rectangular than the laptops you might be used to. This means that the sleeve that comes with this laptop is one of the few snug-fitting protective accessories you'll be able to find.
I haven't used this machine for much heavy-duty work yet, but I will update this review once I've downloaded and used Adobe Creative Suite on it, and report on its handling of some of these juggernaut programs. That being said, everything I *have* run has been great. The speeds to load are fantastic, and the loaded version of Windows does well on the machine.
Some of my favorite features:
The backlit keyboard with multiple brightness settings
The function-lock options (notably absent on past Asus models, which was annoying)
The light-up number pad (more a party trick than anything, but is actually pretty useful when I *do* need to take on some number crunching)
The battery life - WOW. Charges fully in about 1.5 hours, and I've gotten it to last up to NINE hours on that charge
The aesthetic - This machine is gorgeous, and nobody is going to deny that. The slim bezels, the overall thin profile, the blue and gold color... its just so dang pretty.
I was certainly disappointed with *how* jumpy the touchpad was at first, but with the simple fix and the excellent machine you're left with after, this is a great deal on a lovely machine.
PS: I haven't experienced the coil whine so many users here have talked about. I'm on the machine in a silent room now, for instance, and all I can hear is my own typing. *shrug*
So far I have spent:
- 30 min with an Amazon cust rep who ended up recommending that I buy a new charger
- 3 days wait to get the charger. Tried it. No power still.
- 2h with another Amazon cust rep who ended up liaising with ASUS US and concluded that I needed to contact ASUS France on the phone number she provided me
- 5 minutes today with an ASUS France customer rep, who were rather rude and unhelpful.
I am now returning the merchandise to Amazon who are pushing back. What a nightmare. I'll update my rating if the situation ends up being sorted out.
