settled with the ZENBOOK 14 OLED, it recieved great acclaim and review scores. alot of people are talking good about it on you tube so I pulled the trigger.


A few weeks in, and it's not getting even close to the 22 hours of SOT but it does have great battery life at max brightness and actual use like streaming video. I'm seeing 6-8 hours and if I dim the display 50 percent i get 10hours of solid use. the display is gorgeous 2880x1800 OLED 90hz panel its got 100 DCI P3 coverage and really is suprising when you first see it. only flaw is the screen door effect from the coating on the touch display its noticable on white when you move close to the screen. but overall performance and battery life and temps are fantastic. big thumbs up

Im using geforce now, bought a 6month 4080 subscription. It runs and looks good. I honestly will never buy anything that isn't oled again, battery life is better with the zenbook than the vivobook but not by much, the reason I bought it was because reviewers were claiming 11 hours usage at max brightness, in my testing im getting 5-6hours go figure and now its too late to take it back as I dont need 4 laptops/lol.
