What do you guys think of the Zenbook? Save $400 bucks and buy this or go for the XPS 13? Also, hope you enjoy my really cheesy intro!

Matthew Moniz hey could you do a review on the Asus zenbook ux430ua or ux430uq?

Matthew Moniz Great video, love the intro. Two requests please: 1) Video tour of your neat-looking room (2) What's the benefit of using an external hard drive when using photoshop / other editing software?

A $200 laptop is a bad laptop. Even if it's a Chromebook.

+1! I'm still waiting for a definitive review on the Yoga 720. So far, I've only been able to find early hands-on videos, plus a few unboxing ones. Am looking for one from a real reviewer.

Review the new UX430UA?
Milton Huynh (1 month ago)
Thanks for the review, I was under the assumption that the UX330 is a great deal compared to the more expensive ultrabooks but the screen is a disappointment.

which one did u get?
Elisabetta Cobain (2 months ago)
Random YouTuber ok thank u so much, I think I’ll buy acer Aspire vx 5 which is a Gaming laptop. I got a MacBook Pro 2012 but I can’t play anything on it first because on steam there aren’t the Games I like, second because it’s not so powerful to handle all the games I want. Sorry for my english I’m Italian
Random YouTuber (2 months ago)
Elisabetta Cobain only very light gaming on this laptop. If you tried playing some newer titles, you would have to turn down settings all the way to play. This laptop doesn't have a discrete graphics card, only a mediocre Intel one.

Should I get this or the macbook air?
Random YouTuber (2 months ago)
jeppep95 if you can get the student discount, the MacBook air is 849 USD. The MacBook has half the storage, a lower resolution display, weighs a tad more, has an i5 processor that is a few years behind compared to the Asus. But if you prefer MacOS to Windows then get the MacBook. Otherwise, get the Asus.

Should I get this or the Dell Inspiron 15 gaming. This laptop will be for college and I can't decide if I should go light or go gaming. I am unsure if I'll bring a desktop but either way what will be better?
Kristy (4 months ago)
I find ultrabooks are much MUCH better for classes. Gaming laptops tend to be heavier since they need to fit in all the processors and stuff, and if you're wanting to take a laptop with you to the library or to classes, then def go with an ultrabook. I currently have an old gateway that's almost 6 pounds, and even though I can play heavier games on it, it's a huge pain to lug it around and adds more pain to my back. I regret not buying a lighter laptop when I first got into college lol. Also, desktops tend to be better for gaming so if you already have one and want to game, I recommend bringing that too. : )

I got this and it was around 800 US dollars, I love it, I use it for school and not having to learn mac but having an attractive laptop is great, I do play tf2 and overwatch at low settings sometimes and it works just fine. I actually did like the keyboard and I type a lot. This is fantastic machine for a lower price
Anna Valyaeva (4 months ago)
So I really want to buy this laptop but since I am a generally clumsy person, I want to get a hard shell case for it as well, sort of like the macbook ones; however, I can't seem to find a single one for this particular model :(. I'm not even sure if they are made, but is there any other alternative besides a bag/sleeve that can be protective as a hard shell case? Thanks :)
BMO na (2 months ago)
Anna Valyaeva You can buy a clam shell skin cover for it. I've seen a lot on Amazon, EBay, and other discount sites

ASUS is JUNK. Mathew, why in the world would you ever compare the ASUS to the DELL XPS. Just look at the internals. You can make this computer 1" thick and it would only be a fancy metal façade of what a computer wants to be. Customer Service is terrible and support that knows absolutely nothing about troubleshooting issues. I would rather pay the $400 and have piece of mind that when you call support that they can support your computer. My daily driver is the Alienware and my traveling computer is this ZenBook that is complete garbage.

If touchscreen is smooth, responsive and without lag like phone then I don't mind paying extra bucks and having a short battery life. Otherwise, I will go with zenbook ux330ua. Could you please help me with this? Thanks.

I'm thinking of buying this laptop, but it would mean transitioning away from a 15.6" laptop, which is the size I've always been accustomed to. As a uni student, would you guys recommend this? And how would it compare to an Asus Zenbook ux430? In NZ the cheapest I could find this one is for $1400, whereas the ux330 I can buy for around $400-500 cheaper. Your guys' opinions would be super helpful!

Tien Phan (9 months ago)
Hi Matthew, I really enjoy ur video, think it should be at the top of the search result (and also, the intro is interesting!). I have a question, when u click down on the trackpad, do you feel anything at all? I think the one I got is defected. When I press down I can hear a tiny clicking sound, however my finger feels no sensation at all. But when I let go of the click, I can feel the mechanical thing underneath it clicks. Please let me know & thank you!
Matthew Moniz (9 months ago)
+Tien Phan thanks man ! I do remember a bit of click but I don't recall anything out of the ordinary. Seemed solid to me. I'd test if for you but I had to send my review unit back

That's exactly the question I try to answer ^^ Should I take the ASUS ZenBook UX330UA or the Dell XPS 13 ^^ So hard to decide ^^ 400$ is a lot for same config ^^" but every body talk about the XPS 13 like if it's the best laptop you have to take...
Matthew Moniz (9 months ago)
the xps 13 is definitely the better choice, but is it $400 better? MEh, i mean it depends on your use case. The ASUS does a really good job of providing a lot of value for a lower price

DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT BY ASUS. I have the 15" Latest model, and boy i have problems and i already took back 2x under warranty. Yes its okay fast. But the built quality is GARBAGE i MEAN GARBAGE. The 4k = So glossy you dont see anything, colors are crap, i mean i work with photos and RAW images as horrible as it gets. Now since im in Europe i am collecting my complains in a little book so when i get back to the USA i won't forget them, so far i have 2 little pages full of problems. The hinges are broken ( after 2 week of use - not just me every zenbook ) the guy said " just dont open / close it a lot" . It shocks you with electricity because it is metal -KID YOU NOT, the fan before windows update works like a tractor - cant figure out why, I MEAN EVERY WINDOWS update, and the top wont line up with the bottom when you close it because the hinges are SO i mean SOOO bad, when you close it it wont even touch the bottom part so it's just hangs there like bad relationship thats based on sex. it collects dust and finger print like Hillary emails. You wont believe it, I clean one day like a bathroom lady the airport bathroom next day it looks like some gang bang happened on it. The speakers, oh boy oh boy where to start with them, well lets just say you wont have any. These are the shittiest i have ever heard, and i had a lenovo too so hard to TOP that too. Gaming wont fly - at all. Photoshop laggy and I have 16 gig or Ram and Nvidia 960 - not the best but will do. And lucky me i have the extended warrany for an extra 300 $, because i had the feeling ill go back to return this BAD boy a lot. YOP. So if you want a broken crap sounding slow, " shockingly " crap you wont be able to see in daylight - and that kills the battery because you need all the power the screen can give you ( under 2h. ) get this. You won't regret. DONT BE STUPID GET SOMETHING ELSE. Anything - anything is better. HOH I had to do this.
DRNeKky (8 months ago)
nope. I do have this laptop. ND I just sent it back to Asus for my second repair. so I can sell it. when I get back I can post a picture about the things they had to fix. No, true story. No trolling here. 110% true story.
