Based on latest leaked information, upcoming tiger lake u series has similar GPU performance as MX350.

To be honest, 2020 is not the best year to buy laptops. Wo could expect significant improvement next year as GPU moving to 30xx era, Intel 45w CPU moving to 10nm.

Asus prides itself on their 'IceCool' techonogly in a lot of models.
I'm not a huge fan of asus laptop but I owned a cheap one before and the cooling was decent
I guess it really depends on the model.

I sympathize.

Don't they have a service centre in Markham?

Nice laptop! I like the weight.
But,
No usb-c to DP(Video out)? No USB-C power delivery? No touch screen?

If youre sticking with AMD integrated then theyll be sticking with vega on 5000 series cpus. No navi until 6000.

Yeah, I have an Asus gaming laptop with a 1070 and i7-7700HQ and when I play graphic-intensive games, I think the heat killed the SSD twice. Good thing it was under warranty. I had to buy a 5 fan cooling pad that made it much better to use.

I would say we need to wait for the Asus G14 that (in the US at least) is the best bang for your buck gaming PC while having good battery life and performance.

They have different part numbers
the Staples model is UM433IQ-BS71-CA
the CanadaComputers model is UM433IQ-DS71-CA

DS71 vs BS71

Close but different. Not sure what the actual practical differences are specifically, though

It depends on what kinda editing you're doing. Most editing work is CPU-heavy and the GPU doesn't play a big role.
This laptop has effectively no GPU so you're gonna be noticing it on long timelines with lots of effects (lack of Video Memory will hurt)
and when you're rendering your projects when using an editing software that has GPU acceleration (Davinci and recently Premiere)

that being said, prioritizing a phat gpu isn't important in an editing computer. always look for a multi-threaded CPU as your priority. more cores = better

Is it a good buy for this price? I am looking for a decent ultrabook - XPS13 or Zenbook with 16GB RAM with decent speed and screen (not for gaming). Any recommendation or should I wait for Dell, BB or CC to put them on BTS sales? Thanks.
