The ZenBook is built to be sturdy and look nice. It has a metal outer case with little or no flex in the keyboard frame or the lid. The interior of the laptop is covered by its keyboard and second screen. This machine though is rather heavy for a 15-inch notebook. You may need to get a power bank for this laptop because the battery life is not guaranteed and there’s no support for USB-C charging.
This machine has an Ergo lift hinge design with a rubber padding placed under the bottom of the screen to aid increased airflow. The trackpad and keyboard have been pushed to the front due to the addition of a secondary display unit on the laptop. This sort of design on a computer is fine as long as its placed on a spacious desk. The keyboard is that of a regular desktop keyboard while the touchpad is found on the right side of the laptop. There’s provision for arm rest to compensate for the tall upper part of the laptop although you’ll need to constantly adjust the arm rest if you move the laptop because it’s not physically or magnetically attached to the laptop.
