Weird issue is my laptop gets hot while in sleep mode. Had to not use sleep and only use hibernate to fix it. Checked so many power settings and nothing worked.

I have been using this laptop now for a few weeks and I love it! Here is my review on it:

Returned it to Costco, had enough I can no longer deal with the blue and black screen. Its just not realiable enough. On top there is a coil whine and either keyboard does not respond after sleep or the fan goes full blast after resume.

Its back in stock in Costco but $1179.

Will just wait what comes along before EOY.

I have it for about a week and I have the same problems mentioned in this thread: fan goes crazy after a sleep session (have to use hibernate instead) and wifi dropping from times to times...

Thinking about returning it...

My Lenovo stopped doing the black screen/sleep issue, not sure what exactly fixed it, installed a couple of optional driver updates from Windows Update, including a BIOS update not yet on Lenovo's website, also fiddled with alway-on USB power and disabled wake timers.

You may want to try that one the Asus.

Can also check under C:\Windows, if there's a "MEMORY.DMP". By default only a small one (less info) is collected on blue screen crash but still can provide some info what may cause it. Post it up in some tech forums, or in AMD communities forum since it's AMD laptop.

I have the wifi dropping issue too. A little annoying when I'm in the middle of a zoom call.

hmmm this deal is back. Is this laptop still great value? My only complaint about this may be the USB-C not capable of charging or video out, but I don't know how much that would affect me for my usage?

$999 at amazon.ca
