    Looks great apart from 1080p screen (on a 15"? In 2019? Really? Even though it's obviously doing wonders for the battery life you can't even buy a 6" phone in 2019 with a 1080p screen.. I think they should at least offer an upgrade there) and a laptop that looks that good should have at least a 1070..

    should have added no USB-C charging as a disadvantage
    if Apple can do it with the 15" MacBook Pro with 87w charging, there's no excuse

    Horses for courses I guess, but I don't see any of the above, nor lack of touchscreen, as a disadvantage for this kind of laptop. 1080p is plenty for 15" displays - my desktop is 1080p on 23", back when I had a TV it was 1080p on 42"!!

    And finally a sleek, fast laptop with good battery life too. Depending on key feel, this is probably right at the top of my list for laptops I'd consider.

    Re: Asus ZenBook 15 UX533FD

    Doesn't sound like a bad deal at £1400. Not that I'd pay that much for a laptop .

    It's got solid specs and an amazing design. Only thing that sticks out to me as someone else said is the 1080p screen. The webcam and lack of touchscreen are not something that would bother me personally.
