Microcenter has Asus Zenbook 14 on sale for $549. This is for a brand new product. Price is not the lowest ever (I believe BB had it for $500 at some point) but it is well worth it at $549.
Got one for myself, excellent buy!

was able to snag an open box satisfactory (but was pretty much new condition) from bestbuy for $430. I'm happy at $430, at $550 maybe a little less so, but probably still worth it.

I got mine on black Friday last year. The price is luke warm. It's fast though. Battery is ok. No issues with viewing angle and I Bright enough to work outside fine imo. The back lit keyboard is horrible if it's bright out. All Aluminum is nice. It's light and thin and does what I need though. 8gb is enough for me as I'm in Citrix 99% of the time.

If I had to do it again I couldn't because of the backlit keyboard. Its that bad..

I saw this one earlier before this ad. Tempted to buy one as a laptop i can bring to commute/hanging in the park without worrying about the battery or so in a compact size. I just wanted to see if there are other options of this size and price

If it's bright out, then why do you need the backlit keyboard?
