I heard CC is getting more inventory to the stores. Whether they price it the same $899, who knows ?

Screen is really nice wow. The detail watching high resolution video is amazing. Nice feature on the touchpad too with the number pad.
how's useable the touchpad, can you disable the number pads and vice versa?

Yes. You hold the top right corner for a deco d to activate/deactivate.

Sure maybe there are few out there that encode videos all day but the bottleneck here from day one is the graphic output. Either go U or an H with discrete. This H with no discrete is nonsense usage cases.
I'm a software developer and I work on solutions with more than 200 projects that need to be compiled tu run. Trust me, in this case I 100 % prefer an H processor rather than a U.

Note this laptop also comes with a 3-month promotion to Adobe Creative Cloud (all apps). For those who want to redeem it, look in the MyAsus app.

Yes but what user case do you really represent? 0.1%? Also, would it not be better for heavy tasks like that to run them from a desktop along with a large screen?

If someone's picked this up from CC, can they confirm if the keyboard is just English labelled or both Fr/En labelled?

The online order from CC which I received today is going back as I got one from memory express price beat. Let me know if anyone wants it at cost.

Update: Returned the laptop

should I spend $100 more?
very very different,

This will have a WAY better screen, and is slimmer than a g14. Ive owned both, they have a similar feel and build quality.

This has the better screen and likely battery, but otherwise the G14 stomps. (assuming we are talking the g14 with the 6800/6900hx)

The one sitting in my lap. This laptop but 2022 model. I got for $1100 on prime day, it is posted here in rfd a couple days back

120hz OLED, 6800h. 16gb of ram (8of which is slot). I tossed in a 16 gb module so now I have 24gb.

16 is too low for me, 24 is just fine

Had the chance to open it and give it a whirl. Even for the $899 price, I'm very happy with this. Great combo of screen + build quality + performance + battery life. I don't think I've seen anything in the $800-900 range come close in recent times.

I'll try that. Its display is very busy.

It is hard to tell how much RAM Linux needs.

First of all, the video device's memory is mapped into many processes and is normally counted as RAM used by the process (it isn't).

If there is RAM to spare, Linux uses it as a cache. This looks used but isn't required (mostly).

The real question is how much RAM is required by a workload to prevent thrashing (to much swapping).
I don't know a passive tool that measures this.
How do you enable "race to sleep"? Web browser takes a lot of power, so I will usually quit Firefox when I'm not actively browsing anything. I know a lot of pages I go to will usually run JS in the background or auto refresh every so often.
I don't know. This is theory from a talk by ARM kernel developers many years ago (at Ottawa Linux Symposium). But I've heard it elsewhere. https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/race-to-sleep

I would guess that you could tweak kernel "governor" routines to choose this kind of think. Also undervolting (which has the side effect of reducing speeds) or underclocking.

Not sure if there's an issue with mine but it gets quite hot when charging.

Never had issues with this with my 2 previous laptops.
