    I really like these laptops, though the branding is so disappointing.

    They're never going to be seen as a true contender to Apple and the like whilst they've got such obnoxious names.

    Maybe it works in some regions, but not in Europe and North America IMO.

    No DDR4 for a >£1k laptop is crazy. I could understand if it was using LPDDR3, because there's been rumours of supply for LPDDR4 being short, but if you're running full-fat then a laptop worth more than a grand is worth the tiny premium

    It looks like its inspired by that racing version of the renault zoe.

    No dedicated GPU? Not even a MX150? I want at least something for that money.

    Re: Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA

    No touchscreen? Good grief. I always look like an idiot when I try to show my wife something on her MacBook when I can't scroll the browser down with a finger touch! I mean, my Surface Pro 4 has multi touch and I can't imagine spending a lot more on something that doesn't...
