[Costco] Asus ZenBook UX435EAL laptop $1399 ($100 off)

Thought this was a nifty deal on a nice set of specs

2lb featherweight, 16gb ram, 1tb ssd, 100% sRGB display, usb-c charger, 2x thunderbolt, full hdmi... Reviews seem to suggest it is a nice screen at 400 nits albeit FHD and not 2k/4k, and 16x9. Keyboard has some good reviews and some not so good, and battery life is well reviewed as well.

I don't really care for the number pad but its cool I guess.

Meh, my older Asus Zen 13 was only 2.1 lbs, that was truly featherweight. This one is double the weight with a one-inch larger screen. Weight is one of the best features of the Zen laptops, especially important if you're commuting to school or work because you're likely taking other stuff along as well so every pound matters. BTW, the Zen laptops hold their value pretty well. Once I finished with it after 2 years, I was still able to sell it for only about a hundred less than I bought it for.

weight is misrepresented in the original post.

I also see that you won't get this for over a month. You could always order & then cancel if you find something else.

This is straight cap. There is no way that happened.

It's possible. About 3 years ago, I sold my old Acer Aspire 5601 with Intel Core Duo T2050, 2GB of RAM, 100GB HDD for $50 on Kijiji. Thought it would be worthless lol.

Not impossible. For cheaper models, $100 can still be a significant percentage.

If he bought this Zenbook with education discount and subtracted the Microsoft Store credit ($50), it's plausible.

It happened. For starters the laptop was in pristine condition, I got it at a very good price from Costco, which was further reduced when their price came down even more, and I have an excellent seller rating on FB and Kijiji with over 50+ ratings, which automatically attracts people. But hey, you know better.

I ordered on August 3, but still have not received a shipping confirmation.

Has anyone gotten shipping confirmation?
