User reviews

Pros: - Fast (for a laptop)- Fast- Fast- Solid (at least feels so), as my 2 older thin Zenbooks both broke at the screen hinge over time Cons: - ScreenPad - meh- For such a large laptop, limited peripherals (2 x USB3 + 1 USB-C)- Heavy/thick, but to be expected for these specs Overall Review: As a hard-core embedded developer compiling 1M+ LOC daily, I was using a mid-range Zenbook Intel i7 for 5+ years. This did the job, but my needs for additional software, dual-booting, etc., were starting to tax my system. This new freakin' beast of a laptop allows for 16 cores of churn, yielding a reduction of 70-90% in build times - ie. 1 hour turning into 10-15 minutes.Running Linux mostly, the Asus ScreenPad software is useless, however, running without a secondary monitor is quite nice as I can move my terminals to this lower screen to monitor build outputs, and run other low level functions while keeping the graphical programs on the main screen. The ScreenPad is also useful if you want privacy, just move a browser window/tab down there, and nobody can peer at your personal data. I didn't buy this for the ScreenPad, I think it's gimmicky, but hey, there are some benefits.
Pros: Love the dual screens. The 32GB Ram makes screens load very quickly. Very responsive touch screen. Cons: Price Overall Review: I would absolutely recommend this laptop and I definitely would purchase it again! The ASUS laptop seems to be constructed with high quality parts and performs every task I have attempted on it. It is a high price point, but in my opinion it is worth it. Newegg shipped it very quickly, kept me updated each step of the way and the laptop arrived in tip top condition.
