Good point old cpu which isn't all that better off with a Dell especially …Good point old cpu which isn't all that better off with a Dell especially from the outlet

14" screen for a weight of 1.1kg; it's really an ultra portable laptop so not suitable for games. Seems a good price.
I have a zenbook which is now about 3 years old - so not as good as this one.

When I bought it, there were similar comments on hotukdeals about "faster processor for the money" etc

If you want super slim and light then you will usually have to accept that the processor will be slower than a fat heavy pc with bad battery life

My old zenbook has a SSD drive and my friend who has just bought a new macbook was impressed with the speed of booting up.

I wanted a slim laptop which I could easily fit into my bag and which had a good battery life.

It is still good for word, excel, powerpoint, webbrowsing etc.

My laptop is often mistaken by colleagues as "oooh, is that the new macbook" because it is so slim and light.

This is a newer model and I would expect that things have progressed in the three years since I bought mine.

If you are not a power gamer and want a slim, good looking laptop which runs windows and has a 9 hour battery life then I assume it would be a good purchase

No discrete GPU, only 8GB RAM , 7200U ... Hard to be impressed by this

Take your point about the games but the processor is old and not so good so I say the price isn't that great. You can get better for similar money or less. I got a Dell from the outlet for around £460 with a much better processor i5 8250 U which is quad core as opposed to this dual core.

You are comparing new v refurbished.
The CPU is only one component of a laptop and not the most important for many.
When comparing prices then choose a similar spec and quality.
This has 2x Thunderbolt 3, 100% sRGB color gamut, Aluminium body, very small bezel, 1.1Kg.
It appears to be a premium class Ultrabook so the price seems good.
This is a brilliant laptop. I bought one from Dixon for £668 few months ago and it is so thin and light and very quick start up.
Soon as you add to basket, price reverts to £894. That's annoying.

Yep same here, annoying? It's disappointing and let down
Intel Core i5-7200U, 35.56 cm (14 ") FHD 1920x1080, 8GB LPDDR3 2133MHz, SATA III 256GB M.2 SSD, 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, TPM, Windows 10 (64bit)
Wish it was IPS
Very shallow key travel on the keyboards of these. Make sure you try it out first before buying if you do alot of typing. That's one of the major things that puts me off Zenbooks.
I recently bought a zenbook advertise as 512GB SSD but when it came it was actually 120GB SSD (which OS run from) and another drive 320GB SSD

Anyone know what's up with that?

Sounds like it's partitioned to hold the OS and another drive for everything else.

The hidden/remaining GB is probably for recovery.
Great first post op and a nice price, always risky posting a laptop as a deal, many forget what HUKD is about... We’re not a review site, it’s basically can this product be found cheaper elsewhere, if not then this is a hot deal
Expire.. price jumps up once added to the basket
Not a deal at this price, as per other posters have said, amount changes in basket

BT Shop still have theirs in stock. It's wrongly described as a Zenbook S in the heading, but the rest of the listing relates to a UX390UA-BE029T.

I have voted hot. The highlight that you pay for is the lightweight and thin form factor for the level of performance. It has a 14 inch screen in a typical 13 inch ultrabook size. I think that screen is IPS.

The models do confuse me as I think the UX390 was originally just a 12.5 inch, but this is definitely 14 inch.

Thanks for that- have ordered the one from the BT shop slightly more than this deal, but still well worth it.
This will turn out to be a pricing error with a supplier selling direct. Nearly always the case with a price like this over a weekend.
Take it back, got dispatched today.
Mine arrived on Tuesday. Lovely piece of kit. Think its on the BT Shop again for £600 "last few remaining".
