Beautiful looking laptop, why have a ugly thick black bezel around the beautiful sharp screen.

Otherwise Apple would most definitely establish a law suit
I doubt that is the reason; Dell XPS has a borderless/edge-to-edge screen for example. I would assume the decision has to do with the size/form-factor of the device - e.g., the lid being able to cover the base of the laptop.
A good deal ruined by the blatant spam above..
£750 is seriously pricey. The UX305 was around £549-£599.
Wish it didn't have HDD !! quality laptop otherwise
Any processor with a u at the end should be discarded.
Why is it so expensive? Usually a dedicated GPU of some kind on laptops in this price range
£210 less at John Lewis (but lower spec, too).

i3 instead of i7, no 500GB HDD, and less RAM. For my purposes, the JL spec is quite adequate, so tempted by that deal.

It's an ultrabook, shouldn't even be comparing them with bulky laptops with dedicated GPU

There are two directions laptops tend to take when they go above £500- beefy and powerful, or slim and light with a premium design. This is evidently going in the latter direction.
Good specs, But shame about **** graphics card!!!

That's not in new condition.
Condition: A - Grade (See Description)
Voted hot because it's a good price. However just bought a Chromebook for £250. Aluminium, 1.5kg, 12hr battery life, instant boot, IPS screen, zero maintenance. Friend using it the other day: "how do you do xxxx, I don't know how to use macbooks." That's despite it saying Acer in big letters on it lol.

Specs-wise it's not comparable I'm not arguing one is better than the other, but if you don't need Windows or play games and you just want an ultrabook for the size/weight/battery life Etc., you get a lot for your money with a CB.
Really good slim laptop, bit pricey for me for that spec though. I'd expect dedicated gfx of some sort at this price.
If you are after beautiful,premium Windows Ultrabook,take a look at Huawei Mateboox X.expensive but nothing comes close.it's basically MacBook 12 for Windows.
I researched these Windows Ultrabooks extensively..Zenbook,XPS 13,Xiaomi..

Not seen that one before..nice....got a Zenbook i5 7th gen from the AO offer a couple of months ago approx 550.....which i think was a better deal than this - so hold out and something will come up. Love the zenbook series though

the Huawei Matebook X is very recent.just launched infact.
It is truly the best in terms of design.also splash proof and has finger print sensor and 2 USB-C ports.
reviews are promising too.

The Zenbook has some problems like short battery life and bad keyboard..it's good but not great.this price is fine for it Imo.

But I will only consider Huawei Matebook X.

Asus are missing a trick with much of their ZenBook range by not pushing versions with Win 10 Pro pre-installed (in theory, they do exist, but are extremely hard to find). They lost possible sales from my workplace by not doing so - we went for Dell XPS'es instead. As for this one, the battery life doesn't sound good and selling an ultrabook with an HDD included (yes, I know it has an SSD as well) is ludicrous - save weight, power and money by not including one please! Would allow a better SSD to be included at the same price too...

Yes and here's a picture of one. I actually had some one want to trade one in yesterday, but he wouldn't take £300 for it, was worth a try >

If I had this much spare and wanted a laptop, it'd be a Macbook not Windows
That said whats in it is impressive. Certainly Hot

No, means it's a 'mobile' processor (slow, but low power)

that was a core m3 with a 128gb ssd

this is a latest gen core i7 with a 256gb ssd and a 500gb hard drive.

The only problem I had with it was the annoying fan noise, keep spinning up when loading someting a touch heavier than opening a notepad



That's a different model - i5 7th gen. I don't suppose there's much between them.

It's another case of people seeing 'i7' and thinking it's an excellent deal.

Intel are so far ahead now the i series name means nothing. They literally upped the clock speeds of least years m5 and m7 chips and rebadged them as i5 and i7 just to get more £££.

They left the m3 as the m3, despite it being significantly better than last years m3, just to get more people to look towards the i5/7 which aren't actual i5/7s.
Bought the ux32a a few years ago in Asda ex display for £125 swapped out hdd for ssd and added some ram. Still going very strong

We bought upgrade licences for £29 each
Put in the new product code, hey presto, Win 10 Pro

This is not a Core M i7 4.5W chip but a 15W Core i7 so it's a moot point:

£500 for a premium laptop has never been the case and I know you used the word good not premium but good is a lot more of a subjective term.
This is a pretty good and fairly premium laptop so £500 is not realistic.

It's not all about specs snd numbers on paper,build quality and quality of components and materials used and attention to details plays a big role in price.

Even a decade ago "premium" laptops where in the £800-£1000 range.

likes of Sony Vaio (top of the range varients with higher quality build and nicer displays for example where £1000 10 years ago).

£500 was the price of "good" laptos not premium ones and £300 was buttom of the barrel,cheaply made ones with low quality display and ugly cheap plasticy feel.

If you need office you need windows. Saying that I've never looked back, don't even use office on my win 10 desktop now. My day job is writing so use need to use a word processor, but everyone wants stuff in google docs now in my experience, easier for editing etc. Course if you need macros etc then office still has its merits.

£500 has always been the price for a better than rubbish Win laptop, rarely approaching good. My old samsung i5 I still have is a total dog and it cost £500 in 2011 on a deal. Slow, low res tn screen, weighs as much as a car, 4hr battery life new out the box with a wind behind it, reduced to about 30m within a few years.

Honestly if you want something that's not a dog for £500, you need to get a chromebook like the asus C302 (again, not for everyone I know) or pony up for a pricey mac or top of the line win ultrabook.

Once you've experienced anything that's not a £500 curry's special offer and doesn't have a spinning HD, you'll never go back lol.
