There’s gold/yellow key backlighting, and there are status lights for Airplane Mode and Caps Lock. The top row of F-keys double up as various shortcuts, including screen brightness and volume control, but there’s no room for media button functionality, which is a little disappointing.
The big problem is the ZenBook 8 chews through its battery too quickly, lasting a mere 6hrs 52mins in our continuous video-playback test. That’s nowhere near the MacBook’s 15hrs 12mins the same test.
It’s rare to find a fingerprint scanner on a non-business laptop. We saw a couple of examples from Huawei and Asus earlier this year, Microsoft has launched its own fingerprint-friendly Surface Pro 9 keyboard, and, of course, there’s the MacBook Pro. But this technology is only just starting to appear on store shelves.
Roger that. I think I m going to pop over to Micro Center and check it out on my way home from work. I ll see what it has and report back. If it s an Atheros, I ll compare it to my current ultrabook which also has an Atheros WiFi and see what we get.
Hello. Thank you for your review.
I have a go-pro camera and need to edit HD footage once in a bluemoon. Would the 885 or even the 855 be able to handle such editing?
On another note, would the dell xps 18 also be able to handle it?
Other than that i only browse and watch movies.
Only configurations with 8 GB of RAM will be available in my country, but I can 8217 t tell for sure whether 16 GB versions won 8217 t be launched elsewhere.
Didn t have the two side by side, but as far as I remember, my impression is that the UX885 s screen feels a little sturdier. The UX881 is lighter though and uses a different finishing that I don t like that much, so this could be totally subjective.
What I noticed from the first moment I got this notebook out of the box is that this screen is not completely matte like on the previous Zenbooks, it&rsquo s a little shinier and more reflective. That translates in extra glare when used outside or in bright rooms, but also less of the graininess usually associated with matte panels, so while I&rsquo m not necessarily a fan of this type of finishing, I believe most of you might actually like it better than the standard matte screens, especially if you mostly use your laptop indoor.
I haven t reviewed the 715s but there s a good review here: /Lenovo-IdeaPad-715S-18ISK-Core-i7-Subnotebook- Each has its lacks, but I d say they are mostly similar
