The deal will supposedly last only until the end of Tuesday as a response to Amazon Prime Day. Though the specifications are superb for the sale price, the low 8 GB of RAM may still be a deal breaker for many.

Best Buy is currently offering the latest Asus ZenBook 14 on sale for $150 USD off the original launch price of $719. The deal is notable for its Ryzen 5 5500U CPU and discrete GeForce MX450 graphics for a significantly higher level of performance when compared to other laptops in the same ~$500 price range. Most options for this price don't even include discrete graphics at all.

The ZenBook is Asus' premier consumer laptop in the same vein as the Dell XPS, HP Spectre, or the Lenovo Yoga series. This guarantees a higher level of quality when it comes to the display and chassis relative to Asus' budget VivoBook series.

The major drawback to this deal is its limited 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. To add insult to injury, the RAM is not upgradeable meaning owners will be stuck with 8 GB for the life of the product. If you plan of doing a lot of multi-tasking, video editing, or casual gaming, then this bottleneck will surely leave a sour taste.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
