    Can you guys help me? For gaming (casual, maybe dota2), editing, 3d modelling do you recommend this ASUS Zenbook 14 UX425EA or should i buy MSI Modern 14 B11SB instead? I plan to buy the i7 version within that price range. Or are there any other type/brand that worth more than those two?

    This little beast looks awsome and moves accordingly! I don't know why are you doing tech reviews when you are just a prettier version of your sister. When you talk all I can hear is the slap on the forehead of your tech crew. Maybe if you put a little "punjabi"(no offence intended) in it, you will get it wright. But until then, lose the mirror, fire stylist and listen to your tech guy. There are smaller things to plug a 3.5 jack into. Don't dishonor an ultrabook just for that and by any means don't get subjective(as in corrupted)! Palm grease, useless to say useless...just grose!!! This ultrabook deserves only four words: awsome, performance, small and lifespan! Can you film that?! That's a review! I'm speaking as an owner of an ux425ea who saw your video(not the only one, good for me) before buying it

    This review is bullshit .. people don't need or expect touch screen on laptop. This model is the cheapest one that has thunderbolt4 and LPDDR4 option. Without LPDDR4 tigerlake processor won't give you fully functional.. Is there any alternative that has thunderbolt4, LPDDR4 and less than 1.2Kg weight. I'm linstening , plz notice me.

    Why people care so much about the audio jack? You most likely to get wireless headphones anyway or you probably have it already! Plus there’s an adapter, it’s not that big of a deal. Also, I wouldn’t expect a touchscreen for a 900€ laptop anyway lol It seems to be a pretty good computer when looking to the actual characteristics and the price they offer.

    R.a. Wheeler2 måneder siden

    Yeah... na. That deckflex and missing headphone jack does it for me. The XPS is only a hundred more , sometimes even less (Gotta love Dell's code system) and it's far superior in every way possible Even at $800 or $900 I can see someone doing better easily. That said if Asus tweaked this a bit and added a 4k option I could see this being more compelling, as it sits it doesn't look like very competitive to me. Had they at least made upgrading the ram possible, geeks on a budget is a great niche.
