    Apple MacBook VS Asus UX305

    ​NCIX - posted video on YouTube December 13, 2015.

    The Zenbook now has a Skylake processor and is $670 less than the Macbook in Canada. ($1549 vs. $879)

    Apple = Form instead of Function. As usual.

    There is no comparison when it comes to quality and longevity Paul. I do have a new Mac Air, but I also have a 2009 Macbook Pro that I use day in and out on our forums. It runs like a champ. I don't think you could expect that from a Zenbook. JMO

    Hi Jeffrey. Where have you been? Apple owners always quote quality. That may be. Why don't you expect a Zenbook to run like a champ? It's not rocket science. Of course you can compare quality and longevity. There are people paid to assess those parameters. As for customer satisfaction, Apple also suffers from a disappointing rating. I'm glad you are happy with your Macbook's. Carry on.

    Hi Jeffrey. Here is a link to the website -- you can compare companies. There are a lot of unhappy customers for virtually every company. The Acceptable service rating only applies to 4% of the companies rated. You can read the horror stories for yourself.... Take care...

    Customer service reviews and rankings for top companies based upon user complaints, ratings and comments

    I can say I've never had to contact Asus Customer Support...<Whew!>
