TraderGarybut UX582 i9 is 5-7% faster and heats up more....
My previous model was the UX581 i9. I used it for 2 years. It will be replaced by the current UX582 i9 model. The price difference between i7 and i9 is small and not a factor. The i9 is faster and more capable.
TraderGaryI have an UX581 with an i7 and I know what thermal throttling is. The processor temperature reaches 100 C.
Because I previously owned the UX581 i9 and never had a heat problem, I don't anticipate a heat problem with my new UX582. Consider that the new model has 36% better airflow cooling because of the tilting ScreenPad Plus.
The UX852 i9 was in stock on Amazon.com USA this morning and my order has now been made!
