Asus Zenbook UM425IA - Ryzen 4700u, 16gb ram, 1 TB SSD, 14 inches - $899

Newegg via Ebay. Great price on one of the few Renoir ultrabooks yet out there. The only disadvantage appears to be that the screen is only 250 nits. My understanding was that this model has 300 and 400 nit screens, so it could be the former but am not sure.

Edit: found out on Asus' product page (https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS...ech-Specs/) that the display is indeed 250 nits on this, and it also weighs a bit more than the higher-end 400-nit display. It's always something, eh.

Question for anyone who owns this - does this have a cover over the vent crippling it's performance like the AMD variants of the TUF, G15, and Zenbook 14?

This seems like... almost too good of a deal.

Also for sale directly on Newegg's site.

Strangely both the Ebay and Newegg listing use the wrong photos - it shows a 15.6" display. Makes me wonder if this listing and price is a mistake.

Apart from the dim screen, there's also no headphone jack, which seems to rankle folks (I personally use a USB-A dac so it doesn't matter to me.) This is the only review I've found, of a similar version with a dedicated GPU: https://www.ultrabookreview.com/3...iq-review/ . The thermals don't look the greatest, and there is throttling, but honestly I'd be surprised to see otherwise in an ultrabook.

Based on what I've seen regarding this vent blocking fiasco, it seems shady, yes, but I don't see what the big deal is as it's easily removable. They use what appears to be pieces of thin plastic to achieve this. I guess not for those unwilling to open the laptop up...pretty annoying. Except for one of them where the laptop chassis itself was blocked right over the fan...bad.

Can I ask why? Trying to decide between the two myself but the processor is only marginally better. Is it really worth it to pay $350 more for 8gb more of RAM and 750 GB more storage?

depends on what you use it for and how long you want to keep it. This model is basically a thin and light desktop replacement. 2 more cores, 10 more threads, higher clocks, double the ram, and not only 750gb more storage, but its a faster nvme drive to boot.

there's a reason it already sold out. also if anyone is wondering, I did replace the thermal grease on the cpu/gpu/vram, but it didn't do a ton because the thing already super power efficient. fans kick on less often, but not seeing huge performance boosts.

also the nvme has a thermal pad to the bottom case, which is a nice touch.
