For most places (like Amazon) I've seen this for about $1200 but it only has a 512 GB SSD (Costco's has 1 TB SSD)
https://smile.amazon.com/Ultra-Slim-i7-10510U-Innovative-Screenpad-UX434FLC-XH77/dp/B07YZ1MK99/ref=s... [amazon.com]

I ordered this on Sunday 8/9/20 and it said this product is backordered, and is expected to ship between 08/24/2020 and 08/31/2020. Update: I got a shipping confirmation today (8-10-20) that it will be delivered on Thur 8/13!!!

I believe it's glossy screen.

This site says 350 nits:
https://laptopmedia.com/review/as...o-success/

This site says
  • 300+ nits
  • Screen: 14.0 inch, 1920 x 1080 px, IPS, touch, glossy, AU Optronics B140HAN03.2 panel

The Costco page says 300 nits. That's the thing with the Asus models (and likely some other Taiwanese brands), the same model can be tweaked for various geographies and have slightly different specs, so it's hard to tell exactly what you're getting.

And how on earth can they justify only one USB-C and zero TB3 ports? It's an Intel laptop, the controller should be built into the CPU. It's not like an AMD model where there is an add-on cost.

Just started an online masters and this roughly matches the specs they say are required (requirements are school wide, not program specific) .

I'd really rather not spend more than a couple hundred bucks on a laptop at this point. How often does a machine with this type of specs come up just in case I need to pull the trigger.

As someone that knows computers fairly well, it strikes me as absurd that something this powerful would be required for online classes. Do you know what software they're running? Have you talked to anyone in the program that can verify the need?

Received the laptop on Friday but one thing to note is that is did not come with a carrying sleeve or USB3.0 to RJ45 cable like the other UX434FLC models sold elsewhere like the ux434flc-uh76t at Amazon or Best Buy. You would think the Costco model would include those accessories too but it didn't.

Here we go again...every time a deal about an ASUS laptop shows, there is always someone to make snide remarks about the lack of Thunderbolt 3. Yeah, okay, we got it - Asus is stubborn like that. Moving on now.

I have owned this laptop since January (512GB model though) and here are my observations:
- relatively frequent BIOS updates...I've done 3 so far. They don't change much, if anything at all.
- ScreenPad 2 is still a gimick. It's cool to play with in the store. In everyday use, I just shut it off and use it as a regular touch pad.
- That being said, it is a great touch pad - much better than the one in previous ZenBooks (circa-2017)
- Performance is great if a bit unnecessary. I actually use ThrottleStop to cut the Turbo Boost and keep it at 1.8ghz. It saves battery and I can turn up the boost if I start up Lightroom or one of my video editing programs.
- If you cut it to 1.8ghz, it is practically silent - you can't hear the fan. If you let it spool up to the 4.9ghz, then the fan kicks in. It's not terribly loud (definitely not as loud as a Lenovo 720s - that's just horrible)
- MX250...it's okay. Plays Forza just fine. Haven't actually tested it much.
- Battery life is a mixed bag. Some days it lasts me 8-9 hours. Other days, it dies after 4-5 hours even if I just browse and use office suite.
- Speakers are not great, but they are much better than previous ZenBooks (still can't get even close to the upward firing speakers on a Macbook though).
- Build quality is solid. No complaints there. It isn't a fingerprint magnet.
- Screen is great and decently bright.

It's not being snide. Maybe 2-3 years ago it would have been, but at this point not having TB3 is like not having USB3. It is absolutely a baseline, bare minimum component. Especially when the controller is built into the CPU like it is with Intel's chips. Not including it in that case is tantamount to a design defect. They are $499 laptops that have it.

I get that, and I don't really want to defend Asus - it is asinine how stubborn they are with this. But I feel we need to have sticky on this instead of bringing it up every time an Asus laptop deal shows up.
Two things that suck about Asus laptops: no TB3 and terrible webcams. No one should be surprised about these two things at this point.
