I bought a Dell in a retail store that was 100 times better (except for Zenbook's amazing screen), but also 3 times cheaper.
It was my 2nd time of trying to buy expensive laptops. The first time was back in the early 2000s, when I had a Sony Z. That thing only lasted 3 years and died with a DC-DC failure. That trauma taught me that the expensive ones are a waste of money, although I liked that Sony otherwise. It absolutely didn't have the trouble of ASUS.
Anyway, never again.

And I'm finding that this one just doesn't have the RAM or CPU I need for work. The Zenbook 14X Space Edition has twice the RAM and nearly three times the speed.

It's a laptop, so it should have low-powered storage (and I really wish more SSD/NVME drive reviews talked about the power they use: 9W can make a huge difference in battery time) and I have come to truly love a decent backlight for the keyboard (although the X40's "dome light" or whatever you'd call it works pretty well), though I wish they'd give them more dimmability: the lowest level on most of 'em is still far more than I need.
But, yeah, put a ryzen in that space laptop, and I'd be pretty happy to pay $2k. I mean, if I had a spare $2k that wasn't going to get burnt up in the next two months because rents are going up more than 50%. Haha, no Joe Biden is great. I'm so happy.
