This Zenbook one cannot expand memory, Vivobook can (although DDR5 is expensive).

True. Most thin and light notebooks (I believe less than 18mm thick) cannot have the RAM upgraded because the RAM is soldered on board to achieve the thinness.
I prefer the slimness but understand that others may have other opinions.

It's already 16gb of Ram. Thats more than plenty for most in a laptop.

Sufficient, yes. "More than plenty", certainly not.

These are Ultrabook-style machines, so integrated graphics is pretty common. Still would be better than Intel.

I wouldn't recommend it. All the same UI elements of one game running a lot could eventually lead to burn-in.

Wait for a 6800 machine, the integrated graphics are much better for gaming.

https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=230591

Display is very good: 14.0-inch, 2.8K (2880 x 1800) OLED 16:10 aspect ratio, LED Backlit, 0.2ms response time, 90Hz refresh rate, 550nits HDR peak brightness, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, 1,000,000:1, VESA CERTIFIED Display HDR True Black 500, 1.07 billion colors, PANTONE Validated, Glossy display, 70% less harmful blue light, SGS Eye Care Display, Touch screen, With stylus support, Screen-to-body ratio: 92 %

Price is probably ATL for this model.

Detailed specs at Asus website:

Screen is only 60hz according to Canada Computers. I wonder if Asus or CC has the right specs

I'm in for one. I have the same model but with the i7 and second screen as the mousepad. Maybe I can tinker and swap the second screen to the AMD model and have the ultimate ultraportable. :D

I have the Vivobook version of this with the 3050 GPU. There's a lot to love, but there are a few downsides to this. Make sure you are comfortable with 16GB of RAM since that's not changeable. One of my biggest regrets is not choosing a model with a free RAM slot, I'm currently hitting 8-10GB during normal usage. This is nothing to worry about right now, but I'm worried for 3-5 years down the line.

The biggest drawback is battery life, for my use case (productivity and coding) I've never been able to achieve over 6 hours, using Linux and heavily optimizing the battery usage.

The thing I love most about this laptop is the screen. Going back to my old Thinkpads is almost torture because of how good the ASUS screens looks. Sometimes I just sit and stare at my screen, and notice how vibrant the icons and webpages look on this thing. 90Hz is amazing as well, making motion seem very smooth. Sometimes I just prefer to use it over my desktop because the screen looks way nicer than my monitors (Two 2k Dell Ultrasharps from 2018)
