THE GOOD
Decent overall performance
Large PCIe-based SSD, generous amount of RAM
Slim and light
Sharp 4K display
Very long battery life (for a gaming notebook)
THE BAD
GeForce GTX 960M inadequate for 4K gaming
Display lacks contrast
No Ethernet port (requires bundled adapter)
Keyboard is mushy and no macro keys
Little to distinguish it from the ZenBook UX501
