But that's not all: the carefully calculated tilt improves cooling and audio performance, too. If you were doing anything intensive with the mouse, you can forget being able to use this laptop. The mouse will jump around and speed up, then freeze for a second, then move again. When open, this raises the base slightly and angles the keyboard. I cannot for the life of me even here the fans. I'd be lying if I said I was pleased with that because with a 15-hour claim I'd be pushing to get 9 hours without much of a sweat. Especially to a laptop such as this, which would well suit creators.
No heat when on ur lap. The trackpad will lag at the worst times and make the cursor jump around like crazy. The fan, in contrast to most Windows laptops, is very quiet, even under heavy cpu and gpu load. Nobody likes scorching hot metal against their legs. The laptop is light and feels much smaller than it's 15.
The keyboard travel is somewhat shallow, but comfortable. This isn't my favorite sort of case, and has no handles or carrying straps. Battery life has been between 6 and 9 hours depending on the tasks I'm performing. After some research and comparisons, I settled on this one. If this was better, it's a 5 star laptop, but the trackpad is everything. The keyboard is fully backlit and includes a mini numeric pad.
It's smaller by about an inch than my previous Yoga 15 inch laptop, but has the same screen size, due to the lack of bezels. With any ZenBook, your comfort is one of our top priorities. I knew going in this thing wasn't going to run Doom 2016 or Far Cry 5. Same battery life which is saying alot. For starters, you might believe at first glance a soundbar-style speaker is running across the top of the keyboard. For further inquiries please feel free to reach out to us at customerloyalty asus.
It just oozes style and class and continues to stand out from the crowd of black and silver laptops. That is a neat and unexpected bonus those games are fun and a real treat for a boring hotel evening while traveling. The sound is pretty good, with the speakers being just underneath the screen. I'm sure I will enjoy this laptop for years to come at work, and maybe even game on it more when we are not busy. To add to that, I will also be sending the refurbished one back and have them send me the damage computer. You can still game on it though.
When you're pushing it, the bottom does get warm as I eluded to earlier, but the cooling system does a fantastic job at churning all that hot air out of the side of the laptop and away. I moved from a MacBook and noticed the difference immediately. It doesn't have everything since there's no touch display or pen support as you'll find on something like the Surface Laptop, but it's pretty close. However, it's purely decorative, and the speakers are downward firing at the front of the laptop. Not much in this price range with that kind of drive.
Still, not bad, as this is almost triple the battery life that my work-provided laptop offers. This repeats constantly and sometimes lasts minutes. Get a wireless mouse and save yourself the trouble. The hinge is also worthy of highlighting. The trackpad will occasionally lose focus and not respond.

Overall Review: This is newer technology being used in this laptop, Hense the price point. But then, this isn't a gaming laptop. We won't share your email with anybody. Many instances in recent years of corner-cutting in displays or storage speeds, or even the amount of bloatware coming preloaded. However, the older generation games run surprisingly well.
For work, productivity, web browsing, and pretty much all routine tasks, this laptop is blazing fast. ZenBook 15 goes the extra mile with its exclusive ErgoLift hinge, an engineering masterpiece designed to automatically tilt the keyboard to the most comfortable typing position. If you are a Student or a light gamer this is a good buy. Please enter a valid email address. The screen continuing all the way to the hinge gives it a sleek look making it appear as if there is no bezel on the bottom of the screen. Let's look at some numbers.
Importantly, it's a precision touchpad, so no issues there, but I have noticed a few phantom touches that for no apparent reason makes the mouse cursor dart off from where it's meant to be. It's very fast, while consuming little power when unplugged. There's nothing wrong with what you get. With any ZenBook, your comfort is one of our top priorities. And thanks to the super skinny bezels around the display it's also much more compact than 15-inch laptops of old.
