good laptop but price is over
No warranty card was received on purchase no battery got spoilt within 3 months of purchase.
I did not buy this from Amazon, but rather from a store. I got the 16GB ram version instead of the 8GB as sold on Amazon; All else being the same. This is the fastest laptop I have ever used. It is sleek, lightweight(1.2 kg) and fits into my hard-zipped file folder. Boot up is in a second, file saving and fetching is several times faster than one with a SATA hard drive. The 512 SSD drive in this Zenbook is said to be of an older generation than those coming in more expensive laptops such as the HP Spectre. I tried both but could not tell the difference. The battery lasts for a day of moderate use and two days if I hook up to my 23 inch monitor in office and switch off the backlit key board and screen. Talking of the screen, this was the deal-maker to choose between the Zenbook and the HP Spectre. The screen is non-reflective, sharp and practically glare-free enabling you to work for hours without feeling eye-strain.The keyboard travel is long allowing for confident keystrokes. The backlight is not over-bright as in some other laptops I have seen. Only the key- numbers or letters get illuminated which is just enough to work in the dark.Negatives? The screen does not fold over and is non-touch. It cannot be tilted beyond 110 degrees restricting your movements if working at odd angles such as from a bed. There are only 2 USB 3 ports and I cannot use some legacy devices operating on USB 2 ports. The C type port cannot be used for charging.I got a few goodies along with the laptop - wireless mouse, headphones, a 32 GB storage media, USB micro-speakers and a micro-to-regular HDMI connector, pouch and sling-bag. All in all a great deal and a happy Zenbook owner.
