Decent deal on a 8th gen light laptop. The interesting piece here is the touchpad acting as a secondary screen, thought I havent had experience with that.

Oh wow, didn't know Asus' second screen tech trickled down so far already. That second screen is really versatile and helpful, especially while playing media. Good deal

I am guessing Punk Pink and Moss Green weren't big sellers.

Question:
Is the monitor IPS?
Answer:
No, this model monitor is not IPS.
By ASUS Support MANUFACTURER on September 24, 2019

Seems like a steep price to pay for a laptop with bad viewing angles.

Not a good deal, we have had Acer Swift 5 for about $499 with better specs and high quality display. This is normal laptop with below average display for $699. Remember it's not even 10th gen processor.

That deal expired. There were many other deals with 10th gen i7 for about same price. Just look around in this forum. Also there is LG gram laptop for 699 https://slickdeals.net/f/13901804-lg-gram-laptop-intel-core-i5-8265u-13-3-1080p-ips-touchscreen-8gb-ddr4-256gb-ssd-type-c-win-10-699-99-shipping-costco?src=rcm_category_mw

Same price but much better build quality and display is bright.

I dont know if you know how to compare Specs but LG is 13 inch vs ASUS 15 inch with same CPU... LG 256 GB SSD compare to ASUS 512 NVMe which is faster than regular SSD.... SAME PRICE? come on... Asus even has the innovation of second screen touchpad
