Had this machine. 16:9 display without touch kinda ruins it for productivity as it's very narrow in use and very dim. The keyboard is an awful color for use in bright places as it blends with the deck, is silver with backlit keys (making key marking invisible), and has a non-standard layout, this throwing you off a lot. Performance is good but it gets very hot to have it. Little upgradability.

Damn, that's cheap. Would prefer a 2022 model but can't argue with $470 for a Zenbook.

MX450 is faster than the typical Iris Xe.

Same. Looking for 16GB and 2022 chips across XPS and Zenbook lines, but $470 is hard to ignore.

Someone on YouTube said they claim 400 nits, but it's actually closer to 320-350 nits. Not bad.

This is a good deal. The laptop is well built. I bought an open box last time and there was a screen defect, so I'd be cautious of that.

I also got an open box one last year. Nice laptop was hard to find any closer specs for less. Only slight downfall is no memory upgrades or touchscreen if that matters to you. I've played rdr2 wot and a few older games with no issues.

you sure, this late 2020 Zenbook has a 250 nit screen option, could be that one.

Just going off YouTube. If it's 250 nits it's a deal killer. That one on YouTube had a matte screen.
