I’m looking for a new laptop. I currently have the Asus Zenbook pro 15in. It’s really really heavy, especially if you bring the fat brick charger around. Battery life like 4 hours so it’s a must if you’re on the go. I want something with enough power but much lighter.
My main use is for school and probably for work where I’m using a lot of excel and would benefit from something that can run at least 1 other monitor so I can look at a few spread sheets at once. I like to keep a lot of taps on and usually have something running in the background. I think 16BG is good enough. No need for a 32 or more. I plan to get a desktop when I settle down, so I just need one that has enough power and is portable enough for me. Under 3lbs for sure. closer to 2.5lbs if possible.
I’ll also probably watch Netflix and youtube, but I don’t think a 4K screen is necessary. I might play some games, but I don’t game enough on the PC to care about crazy graphics cards. Prefer the experience of the console. PC feels like work for me.
I saw this new Zenbook 14 that looks pretty good. A bit over my budget of around 1,200USD. But maybe it’s worth it.
I also saw the the Hauwei is getting amazing reviews and the specs look great at a good price. But I won’t get a Hauwei on principle and it also is a copy of the Macbook…but possibly better. I just don’t trust them.
Anything else on the market that fits my needs?
