    • Not Worth Your Money

      from Toronto, ON on February 6, 2019

      Honestly, I bought this laptop about 13-14 months ago, mainly because I know Asus is reputable and usually comes out with good products....but not this one. Issue #1: Coil Whine like almost everyone else has stated. Super annoying and ridiculous considering the fact that I can't even go through a web page without hearing this awful sound. Issue #2: Random shutdowns that result in loss of work and a waste of time. I am hearing that others are also having this issue, and in order to start it up again, we need to hard reboot the laptop. This is unacceptable as Asus is a major company that is known for quality motherboards, etc. Issue #3: Keyboard is very flimsy, my enter key has broken, and there is literally no online store that sells the Canadian ENTER key, which makes my life as a student even more difficult as I'll have to ship this damn thing out to fix it. Issue #4: Overheating......As others have said, this laptop is prone to run hot. I've noticed that even on idle, with no programs running, this laptop gets hot, again, unacceptable for a thousand dollar (Including Taxes) laptop. I expected better from Asus, and I'm sad to say that I have given up on them. They should really just stick to making components instead of building crappy laptops that most people end up complaining about. Even though I am a windows person, I would suggest buying a Macbook for couple of hundred dollars more as it will last you years! Horrible experience and a waste of money. I've gotten to the point where I am wasting time writing this review in order to warn others to not buy this laptop.

    • Was I wrong a year ago!!!

      from Toronto, ON on January 3, 2019

      On Nov 24, 2017 I left a positive 5 star review after using this unit for 2 weeks. Now in just over 13 month I totally regret this purchase. Basically the unit is going to trash. One month after warranty expired unit is having inconstant reboot / shut down problem. Geek-squad took a look at it and advised that it is a hardware problem which will require to replace the mother board (cheaper to buy a new laptop) or a possibility of a broken ribbon cable between the base and the screen which is at least a few hundred dollars repair.

    • Great at first, quality falls quickly

      from Toronto, ON on November 12, 2018

      I purchased my Asus Zenbook only 3 months ago, and at first, the battery life (~8 hours) was great, and it performed well during lots of simultaneous tasks. Within 3 months though, the battery life has dropped to 4 hours (after painstaking efforts to only charge the laptop when it was fully dead and then to 100%) and the computer has already crashed multiple times during regular work (I do not game). I had definitely thought I was upgrading from my previous laptop but do not think the Zenbook will realistically last me more than a year or so, much to the chagrin of my wallet.
