Decent price for this. I bought one new a couple years ago and really like the portability and battery life. It's no powerhouse when it comes too the CPU, but for for web surfing and media consumption it's snappy enough.

Specs seem decent but Imho processor is weak. Too weak for this price or too expensive for this processor.
Oh and that bilingual keyboard.

OOS. How's the battery life though?

I have the 6y30 version of the Zenbook and I'm loving it.

I have the 6y10 version of this and FHD videos were rarely smooth. Some reported better luck but not me. Gave to my daughter. Speakers are barely audible.

5Y10 or 6Y30? There's no 6Y10.

Anyways, I have the 6Y30 and I primarily used it for taking school notes and watching FHD movies & dramas (~7000 kbps bitrate) with VLC. No issues.

Speakers do suck, but if I'm using the laptop, I'm typically out of the house so I'm wearing headphones.

This CPU is tuned right down. Some current smart phones probably have more horsepower. Anyone have experience with battery wear on these refurbished units?

If all you need is basic browsing, word processing, etc., this is a great deal.

It is all aluminum zenbook.

It's the one that was available at MS Store for $650 almost a few years back. Like I said some had better luck with videos than me and tried all the tips back then. But the one MS was selling was the QHD screen.

Only around a year and a half ago. Time doesn't fly by that fast!

I managed to snag a "student discount" of ~$82 as well. :)

Didn't end up using the $60 GC though.

My Core2Duo chipset had built-in video decoding. These things are generations ahead.

I think there was something wrong with your software config.

Really thinking of picking this up as a second laptop for surfing, excel/word usage, and watching movies. I have a 2011 build macbook air as well which is fantastic. Can anyone compare how this stacks up? Seems like the mobile processor is the major drawback. I am wary of it's ability to run some tuning software for my car which I currently run off of windows via VM on the macbook.

Thinking about this laptop as well. My 3yr old Lenovo E440 power port just crapped out and don't think it is worth getting it repaired at this point.

With that price, I would rather get the refurb Dell E7440 with i5 4300u, 8gb ram and 256gb ssd, the only down size is the screen (1366x768), but for $353 how could you complain right?

I really need to learn how to type on a bilingual keyboard if I want to take these kind of deals.
