    This laptop met my expectations.

    Posted
    HWLHProductions

    Ok, I will first start off by stating that this laptop met my expectations 100%. I bought a Dell 2-in-1, the next day I exchanged it for this one because of the extra storage (+256GB) and because ASUS. They know their gamers. **PROS** -Intel 8th Generation CPU (Integrated Intel HD Graphics so you can't really game on this.) -512GB of SSD storage. -16GB of RAM. -Backlit Keyboard (Though the "G" on my keyboard shines the brightest for some reason) -HARMAN/KARDON Speakers!! (Sounds very well/loud/deep: You can hear some bass, I was surprised when I first tested these, this is definitely one of the top reasons why I will keep this computer. -Clean Aluminum Finish (Reminds me of a Macbook Pro) -HD Display (1920x1080) -USB-C Charging & Data Transfer (I keep mine plugged in with Asus" Maximum Lifespan Mode ON) *Battery will last longer over the years (HUGE PLUS) Asus really knows what their customers are like. -Fan speed picks up when under heavy load (rendering videos for Youtube 1080p30FPS) BUT is very quite during normal use. Sounds like there's no fan at all. -Battery life, I have not tested the battery life from 100%-0% but I have from 60%-10% (Lasts a couple of hours with brightness & keyboard light set to about half/lowest) I fell asleep without the battery completely draining. So I can say the battery life is pretty good. Will definitely last you the entire day if you use it without heavy load. -Free Stylus & Adapter (USB 3.0/HDMI/USB-C) *I have a mouse plugged in but I need more USB ports so I will definitely be buying a 4-Port USB Hub so that I could use my mouse, charge my phone and transfer data. (You can get one at WM for around $10) -Lightweight. You can use it wherever you want **CONS** -My adapter, as I type this, is currently making an buzzing/electronic sound. It almost sounds a very faint junebug going off repeatedly. -The letter "G" stands out when the backlit keyboard is on. G is noticeably dominant. My brother was like "Why is the G brighter than the other letters??" hahaha. -I was rendering a video (1080p60FPS) but it was taking way too long, I understand 60FPS does take a lot longer but I did not expect it to take over an hour for a <10 minute video. But it does the job with lower rendering settings. - Using Sony Vegas 13 I had a long drone video (about 20-30 minutes long @ 1080p60FPS) was trying to edit it but the preview screen kept lagging. Did not find a fix for it. Would not recommend trying to edit videos longer than 10 minutes. -Google Chrome freezes up for a couple of seconds, not sure if this is a problem with google chrome or with the computer. When this happens I am not under heavy load. -Windows 10, if you do not like mandatory/automatic updates when turning off your ultrabook, you can completely disable them under "services" -Needs more USB ports Would I recommend this to a friend? Yes and no. Yes, if they have the money for it. No, if they are on a tight budget. Would I recommend this to a gamer? No, you can get a BEAST of a PC with $1200. (i7 7700K & 1070) under $1200. I believe Best Buy has one going for $1159 right now. Only reason why I decided to get this is because I can do my work wherever I please to and it's powerful enough to do basic tasks and mid-level rendering/processing. Will be using this for the next few years. Thank you!

    Powerful Laptop

    Posted
    Matt

    I bought this laptop about 6 months ago and wanted to give some time before I gave it a review. This laptop is the best laptop I have ever owned. Pros: -Speedy 8th gen CPU -Thin and light form factor (2.4 lbs) -Quick to charge using USB type C (I can charge my laptop using both usb c ports. dont know why people say only one is used for charging) -512 SSD -16 GB RAM -Surfing the web, emails, and listening to music is a dream on this computer. -Can handle light gaming. I play games such as Portal, Stardew Valley and Kerbal Space Program without any problems. I opted for this machine because it is not my primary gaming machine (have a desktop) but it is nice to see that it can play some games especially on the go. -Bluetooth - can also hook up a wireless bluetooth SNES controller (8bitdo) and play emulated games on this laptop. Would highly recommend a bluetooth mouse also with the lack of USB 3.0 on the laptop itself. -Great laptop for air travel due to thin and light design and decent battery life. -USB dongle allows me to hook up USB 3.0 devices, and connect to external monitors/tvs using hdmi. Cons: -Battery life - I would say the battery life isn't bad but its not great either. I first tested the laptop from 100% to 0 with the brightness set at 50% the entire time. I was doing moderate internet browsing and watching youtube videos and twitch the whole time and managed 5.5 hours of battery. The next day I tested from 100% to 0 again, and set the brightness to 25% the entire time and virtually did not watch any youtube videos and twitch. Mostly did some light internet browsing and reading/writing emails, etc and was able to get 9.5 hours. I think this is pretty much to be expected. The harder you push the laptop the faster the battery will drain. -Touchpad - I didnt notice this when i first bought the laptop but recently I have noticed that when I am scrolling down webpages, the touchpad will just stop scrolling randomly. I will have to reset the webpage to reactivate the scroll gesture. This happened like once every 5-10 minutes and became very annoying but has since stopped. Besides these minor annoyances, this laptop is simply amazing. It does everything I could have hoped for and is just the perfect machine for my needs. I would highly recommend this laptop if you are a student and/or want a really fast, lightweight powerhouse that can handle light gaming and do productivity work like a breeze.

    I'm coming from a 2017 Macbook Pro and prior to that, a Surface Pro w/ 8gb RAM i5. I was cross shopping between the HP spectre 360, Dell XPS, Envy, and a few others. I wanted under 14" display, high def, fast processor, SSD, and portability with a minimum of 8gb of RAM. Why did I leave the Macbook Pro? The OS was crippled when it came to work functions and power photo editing. Anyone that disagrees is either making concessions or doesn't actually know how to use maximize workflow with Windows. In addition, the hardware was the turtle in the race, slow and steady. Finally, the lack of a touch screen did me in (I don't care what anyone says, once you get used to having one, you don't want to go back). Regarding the Asus Q325UA, this is the best laptop I've used in quite some time, and the happiest I've been since having my original Surface Pro. I'm not sure where online stats are stating .55" thickness, I'm measuring under .5" at its thickest, and that is the very tip. This is the thinnest laptop I've seen next to the Dell XPS, and honestly, it is far more functional when considering that it uses a 8th gen i7 U series processor, not the dumbed down one they use and pass off as a i7 (essentially an amped up core M processor). The look is polished and zero gimmick (carbon fiber, odd angular designs, etc.). My only complaint on design is it attracts fingerprints on the outside. The screen is beautiful and has minimal bezels on three sides. The trackpad is the best I've used, I'm confused how they got it to glide that smoothly. It can almost be a touch oversensitive, but definitely a plus. The processing power is amazing with the 8th gen i7 and 16gb of RAM. It runs Photoshop and Lightroom and beyond fast. There is very little bloatware and they let you choose what it uploads at install. Very nice to not auto upload it. The keyboard is good for the thickness. Honestly, for the typical sale price which floats around $1100, I didn't find anything close in terms of processing power with the 8th gen i7, 16 GB RAM, 500+gb SSD, slim factor, etc.

    Best Laptop/Notebook for work!

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I spent HOURS researching laptops, notebooks and desktops. The security thought I was going to steal a laptop because I kept circling the laptop section in the store. I picked up each laptop, compared number of usb ports for my liking. Even spent the time reading reviews online on my phone while I simultaneously looked at the computer in front of me. I wanted to be sure that the hp I originally came to pickup was right for me. THEN I SAW HER. What a beut. This baby is lightweight, fast, and efficient to work on! The clarity of videos is amazing. Its quiet unless you've used it for 5+hours straight while multi tasking like I have. When I mean "unless" I mean that it has a noticeable fan sound that is barely heard under the quietest circumstance. I haven't used the pen yet but ill be sure to update my review for that. The battery life is great. At 100 percent and placed on battery saver I have found that it last me a good 9 hours with multitasking and 25 percent brightness. The touchscreen is great and did not find it glitchy like those terrible androids people buy from knock-off phone services. Aesthetically this asus is chic and classy, you'll definitely have people ask what computer is that or where did you buy it. As mentioned its light and slim. You'll forget that its in bag. The camera is fantastic definitely better than your selfie mode on your average current iPhone. In regards to gaming.. I've only played LOL on It but it handled it pretty well. I've also connected another monitor to test how it handled gaming on another monitor. It did well BUT I still implore anyone who is going to be gaming to get a desktop or gaming laptop. This is definitely meant for work and not for gaming or pushing the graphics card (you'll hear it from your fan or feel the temp). The keyboard is comfortable and mousepad is smooth. In regards to speed.. Let me just say that I am a cheap person. I was still on my hp computer that had i3 processor and a ram of 8gb. It wasn't entirely slow but man you can tell how far we've come by using this asus. Writing Papers or emails has never been this fun! (jk).There is still a lot of features I have yet to test but I am excited about it. I strongly recommend this laptop for anyone seeking for PROFESSIONAL OR EDUCATIONAL usage. This is too expensive for leisure and too expensive to risk overworking on gaming.

    Favorite computer

    Rebekah

    This is a good little computer. I've had it for about four months now. It definitely has more processing power than I need (I'm a college student and I mainly use my laptop for Word, Excel, internet, and taking notes). However, I was willing to pay for this one because I needed something really light weight since I have back issues, and also I want something that will last awhile. This was about as light as I could go without getting a Macbook Air or a tablet (I didn't get a Mac because Macs don't interface with Excel very well and I use Excel a lot, and I didn't get a tablet because I wanted something with more power). This computer is super light weight which I love. It's also extremely smooth and fast, which I used to think wasn't that big of a deal, but now I realize it makes such a big difference. Those two items (it being light-weight and smooth/fast) carry the most wait in why I love this computer so much. Also, I love that it can flip back into tablet mode. It's just nice that the screen is so flexible (flexible as in, it can bend back really far). I also love that there are mini USB (I think that's what they're called) plug-ins on both sides of the computer so I can plug in the charge chord on either side. LOVE that feature. And it comes with an adapter so I can still plug normal USB's in if I use the adapter. Cons: -The really annoying thing has been that it sometimes randomly shuts off when I have the lid closed. I can't figure out what's causing this. Sometimes it will go days without happening, and other times it will happen multiple times in one day. -The power button, sound buttons, and finger pad sensor to log in are all placed in an awkward spot on the side of the computer which is annoying. -The resolution on the camera is TERRIBLE. -Wish it was a Mac sometimes since I have an iphone. If it was a Mac, then all my electronics could be connected and I would be able to text on my laptop -Sometimes the fan spins a ton and it gets really hot even though the computer is not necessarily working extra hard or anything. -Came with a stylus pen thing that I can't get to work Would recommend to a friend. Though also slightly hesitant to because of the issues with it randomly shutting off.

    A Solid Laptop

    PROS Design : In terms of design, it's amazing. The laptop is super thin, super light, and highly recommendable for everyday users for its portability. It looks and feels very secure. Performance : Fast. The specs on this laptop is incredible for its price. The touchscreen works great, the track pad feels very smooth to the touch. Content : The device comes with an ASUS stylus, and a multi usb hub. The stylus is nice. Comes with a pre-installed battery, and it connects to the laptop automatically which is really convenient. 2-in-1 : The laptop screen folds back flat to work as a tablet. The laptop automatically switches to tablet mode, giving you a real tablet-like experience. CONS Cooling Fan : Because of its slim design, the fan ASUS has put on here is sub par. It can get a little loud and whiny during heavy use, but on normal use it's pretty quiet. Battery Life : As it is with any other devices, the battery life is not what you expect. The advertised battery life is 11.5 hours but I am getting less than half of that. Lack of ports : Although you can't expect a ton of ports on such thinly designed computer, but it is still somewhat lacking. It only has 2 USB-C ports, once of which cannot be used while charging. VERDICT: If i could I would give it a 4.5 stars, cause it's very close to being perfect. For the price you can't get anything something like this with any other brands such as HP ($1600) or Apple ($1700 and up). I would highly recommend this products to students like myself, writers, or just to folks who use computers for daily tasks. However, for gamers and photoshop illustrators, the graphic card will probably not be able to handle the task load. But other than that, definitely go for the laptop!

    Pros: Light, fast, and responsive. I can switch seamlessly between tablet mode and normal mode. The Asus pen that was designed for it was cheaper than the Wacom model. I downloaded and installed Windows Journal x64 to satisfy my fix to write longhand. There are four speakers that provide good fidelity considering the machine's dimensions. Sounds even better with headphones in the 10HZ - 20KHZ range. No complaints streaming Netflix. The screen provides vivid colors. The keyboard is responsive with large keys. The battery lasts all day with the Battery Saver option enabled and performance is not affected. Annoyances: The power button should be recessed. It can be pushed accidentally when flipping in & out of tablet mode. The solution is to configure Windows to do nothing when the power button is pressed which leaves the only ways to shut down or put the machine to sleep is through the GUI or through closing the lid. I can live with either. Palm rejection is good in theory. The Windows 10 option to "disable the touch function when using the pen" is also good in theory but needs to be reworked. If you're writing longhand and lay your hand on the screen before the pen is detected, touch goes into effect. Since I have more use for the pen than I do for the "touch" option, I found a way to control the touch function through a system tray utility. Summary: The Asus Q325 fits well with my lifestyle. I'll be using it for a long time.

    This is a Surprisingly Awesome Laptop

    I went on to buy a Surface laptop and changed my mind as soon as I saw this in the store. Thank you ASUS, this is slimmer than a Mac book air and the specs you get for the prize is unbelievable. This is the best product for your money when comes to the internal specs they offer. I bet we don't find a cheaper yet better one for the prize (Please research and you will realize that) Coming to the Product: Full HD screen with 2 in 1 design is the best. Light weight.... 10 hours battery and i7 processor with 512 gigs is the best combination I needed. Its so light that I even check my backpack to see if I am really carrying it or forgot it back home.... Its that light weight. Everything is perfect about the laptop except for one small concern I had.... It Overheats a bit sometimes with not so much load on it and the cooling fan is a little aggressive to keep the heat out. One thing to keep in mind that Charging can be done only through left side Type-C port. (Does not charge with Power banks or mobile chargers in case you are curious), Also, having to use only the left side port for HDMI is another downside.... Right side port is pretty much only be used for data transfer or connect a mouse etc... Over-all its a great laptop and you will not get any better for the money you pay. I highly Recommend it!
