Costco ASUS ZenBook UX501VW-XH71T 4k Touchscreen i7 - GTX 960M

$1150 - Zenbook Pro 15.6" 4K Touch, 16GB RAM, 500GB SSD

So on first glance this may not seem like a slick deal since this is a 6th gen CPU and previous gen mobile GTX. But for the graphics designer, developer or enthusiast its an excellent bargain. This model comes with GTX 960M with 4GB VRAM and Windows Pro. Because this is Costco the manufacturer's warranty is extended an extra year - and the ASUS ADP warranty covers drops and spills. If you have the Costco Citi Card it will extend to 4 years. A similar spec'd notebook at Amazon [amazon.com] runs $1579+

Pros: 6th gen 4 Core i7, 4K 15.6" screen, 16GB DDR4, Windows Pro, Aluminum Case, backlit keyboard, Warranty

Possible Cons: Claims the 4K screen is really a fake 4K Pentile matrix, slower than current gen graphics, .5 heavier than the XPS 15, glossy screen, wemcam low light performance

This is Costo online. Not Costco In-Store. Plus there's an asterisk that seems to mean they exclude refurbs and open box items. The costco page specifically advertises the warranty too.


* Select BRAND NEW notebooks and select tablets may be eligible for the ADP program at the time of purchase. Refurbished and/or open box products DO NOT QUALIFY for ADP. Please refer to your authorized reseller for complete details.

Do be aware this laptop uses a PenTile (RG/BW) not-true-4K display. See the sidebar on http://reddit.com/r/SuggestALaptop/ for more info.

See this reddit post of mine for some links to true 4K laptops: https://www.reddit.com/r/videogra...k/dg86fn9/
