With the Zen 3 coming to thin and light ultrabooks AMD managed to cram 8 cores and 16 threads into their Ryzen 7 5800U. And in the ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED UM325 the performance, battery life and screen bring it all together into one of the best laptops in 2021 under $1000. BUT there are a bunch of concerns we need to discuss about 5800U availability, gaming performance and more, not to mention some odd design decisions from ASUS.

  1. my sis will need a laptop around 700€ this september
    I hope prices will be ok and not stupidly inflated
    theoreticaly 799$ = ~655€

  2. I think you're underestimating the speakers of the Zenbook man, it has Harman/ Kardon Certification on it, you might want to fully test that speaker on how it performs on Bass and 5.1 Surround Sounds.

  3. Your reviews are just simply among the best 5 channels out there! Thank you so much.

    What is the deal with the griping about the headphone jacks? Why would anyone want to use 60 year old technology, when you can have the best BT headphone with all the bells and whistles on the go? Even at home, who has their headphones on for 10 hours or more without a 15 minute break to recharge them?

  4. It doesn't cost much more to design a good hinge vs a bad one…so its no longer all metal…plastic…and how does it compare to the M1 which can run many of the MS Office apps?

  5. I've been following this model, great display, monster processor… The most appealing laptop for me if it ever gets full Linux distro compatibility.

  6. I've been waiting for an 5800U in a laptop for soooo goddamn loooong… Still waiting for a good one though.
    /E: why didn't you just open it and see what's loose inside? Oh you did – what was it? wtf
    The gaming graphs don't make sense – it's either undercooled, or some other kind of fuckery going on. Asus, pls. See what too much RGB does to your head?
    Soldered ram and glossy screen are automatic disqualification btw. And no jack? Dafuq are you doing, Asus?

  7. Autodesk maya loading is a benchmark now. BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.. ohh god.. i am so glad i stopped to buy their products..

  8. No Headphone Jack is poor frankly – the components cost little and should be included moving forward.
    Am happy on my 4800H Ultrabook currently.

  9. Asus really needs to listen to feedback. Needs headphone jack, upgradeable RAM, and another heat pipe. Laptops need all the cooling they can get. Good detailed review 👍

  10. When you say this thing is insane I'm already know how good it is. I'm using ryzen 7 5800H the perfomanced above expected and battery life is mind blow. For gaming laptop battery life up to 8-10hours (iGPU mode) is awesome in same time perfomaned no issue at all. No lag, not like intel core i7 8 9th when u using saving mode it feel lag and low respond also battery life still suck. Asus Rog Strix G15 (RTX3070)

  11. I don't know why anyone would buy a productivity laptop with FullHD resolution. Utter garbage. Will PC makers please start including a minimum of 2k with the option of 4k, or GTFO?

  12. Thunderbolt would be a GREAT feature.
    The ability to grab a used graphics card in 6 months and make your laptop a decent gaming machine when you dock it is what made me advise 11th gen over an overpriced out of stock gaming laptop, or an amd laptop to my brother

  13. I hate when these brands try to replace perfectly fine windows functionality with their own crapware, I mean, power management? a screen saver??? what's next? a dedicated volume change animation? (oh, wait)

  14. 800 usd oled in ultrabook with good performance… wth guys get your supply in order already and take my money already.. frustrated!

  15. $999 vs $1899 for the m1 with the same specs. ouch.
    But the insanity and stupidity of mo headphone jack is simply crazy, and virtual signalling for no good reason.
