Will probably cost more if you're not a member

Seems like a reasonable deal to me.
I believe this model has a backlit keyboard.
Some might argue that the screen res is overkill and will affect battery life, and they might have a point.

The new ZenBook UX330 is simply breathtaking. Its supremely elegant aluminum-alloy unibody chassis is an unbelievable 13.5mm thin, and weighs a feather-light 1.2kg. And with up to 12 hours battery life, ZenBook UX330 takes even the longest working day in its stride. The numbers may be impressive, but its looks are even more so, with the stunning Zen-inspired spun-metal finish. ZenBook UX330 has more than enough performance to cope with all your on-the-go productivity needs, with a powerful 7th-generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor. The wide-viewing-angle display is a real treat for your eyes too, with its pin-sharp up to 3200 by 1800 resolution enhanced by exclusive ASUS Splendid and ASUS Tru2Life technologies for vivid, lifelike colors and clear, sharp videos.

Supremely Thin, Enduringly Elegant.
The ZenBook Series practically invented thin and light, and ZenBook UX330 continues that proud heritage, featuring a timelessly elegant all-new design with a profile that's just 13.5 mm thin. Using solid aluminum alloy throughout —lid, bezel, keyboard surround and base — keeps the weight down to just 1.2kg, but it takes dozens of precisely-controlled manufacturing steps to craft it into its sleek shape. Our unique spun-metal finish, with its Zen-inspired concentric circles, adorns the lid, with a tough and durable sandblasted-metal finish adorning the rest of the chassis.

All-day 12-hour Battery Life
ZenBook UX330 is built for serious mobility, with our exclusive energy-efficient design that helps it last for up to 12 hours between charges. ZenBook UX330 takes even the longest working day in its stride, with fewer trips to the power socket!

ASUS ZenBook UX330 has a Li-Polymer battery - a greatly improved lifespan compared to standard Li-ion cylinder batteries. In addition, Li-polymer batteries retain most of their original charge capacity even after hundreds of charge cycles, so you won't have to worry about deteriorating battery performance. Thanks to a clever combination of hardware and software optimization, the battery adheres to the highest battery safety standards.

good spec; personally I would be happy with full HD resolution for this size screen.
Was gonna buy…896
But I think this is better. Better battery life
1800p does sound absurd for a 13.3" but certainly makes a difference.
I recently compared my Zenbook with a 1080p XPS 9370 and the screen on the Dell looked surprisingly low-res.

Scales nicely to 1600x900 for light gaming on the Intel GPU.
Plus 1% cashback if using a Costco AMEX card, and a further 2% if an Executive Costco member!.
That's no good to me
My 13.3" inch screen is a 1440p amoled and I love it. There will always be laptop makers filling up the bottom end of the market flogging 1366*768 screens even in 2018. It's time to start pushing the upper end of the market forward by buying stuff like this and if battery life sucks we'll take it on the chin like we have done with smart phones for a few years.
