    Business laptop without a webcam? More or less all the business communication I do these days is video based.

    Sure you can carry one (urgh) but as USB-C webcams don't exist thats Webcam + dongle to take up one of the one 2 ports. Just seems like a bad decision.

    By the times you've brought along all of the extras, as well as the dock, you might as well just buy a Surface pro 4.

    Can't really see what makes this a business laptop aside from the vPro and fingerprint options. But then I don't really think too much of an X1 Carbon with it's soldered memory either.

    Always though the #1 criteria was serviceability that's why I always recommend used business class laptops over cheaply made consumer stuff. Had a quick look at the AsusPro section of Asus's site and none of the ones I looked at even come with service manual.

    This is exactly the kind of laptop that sales guys would love, right up to the "no webcam" - I was going to consider it for my "maybe buy" list until I read that. In this bracket it's the Lenovo T460s, X1 or Dell XPS 13 as the options to consider.
