Fast, light, powerful and good looking. This is a fantastic laptop. I’ve been using a MacBook Air for a while and when it fell to the ground and the screen was shattered, I felt paying $450 for a new screen was a ripoff. After lots of researching, I settled for this UX305, buying the 8GB RAM, Core i5 and 256GB SSD version. My comparison will be directly to my experience with the MacBook Air.1) Performance: if you buy the Core i5 version (cost me $750 from Amazon, just $50 more than the anemic Core M version) you get a 5200U processor, which is very similar to what you get on a 2015 MacBook Air. This is the Broadwell architecture from 2015, which in itself is little more than a 14nm reduction of the 2014 Haswell architecture, which was 20nm. When the fabrication process of the CPU is reduced (20 to 14 nanometers), you automatically get power benefits, giving you the option of achieving better battery life with the same performance as last year, or more performance at the same battery life as the previous year…

This ultrabook is fantastic. Alright, this will be a lengthy review, but the thing that helped me the most in buying a laptop were lengthy reviews.I have used this for all about 3 hours total and I am absolutely in love with this thing. I’ll break it up into sections and I’ll compare it to the Dell XPS 13 128GB 4GB of RAM – if that’s what you’re thinking about getting, then don’t. Get this. I mean it.Design:Firstly, this thing is light and thin. Obviously that’s true, but holy hell, it’s LIGHT and THIN. It’s nearly all aluminum. The lid lifts up with out pulling the bottom half up, which is a rarity in laptops running Windows (not Macs though, weird). It doesn’t tilt back all that far, maybe 120 to 140 degrees open, but it’s not a big problem, as the viewing angles should be far better than most laptops. I should mention that this thing is a finger print magnet. Be wary of that. Not a deal breaker by any stretch.Screen:I did not want a matte display at first. That’s…

Comparison between the i5 version Asus Zenbook UX305LA and Dell XPS 13 I rarely leave reviews on Amazon but I like this laptop (i5 version Asus Zenbook UX305LA) so much that I want to share some information and how I tuned its screen. I bought this laptop for my mom because of the excellent review article on http://www.notebookcheck.net and the very decent deal on Amazon. I happen to have a Dell XPS 13-9343, which has identical CPU, RAM, and SSD but QHD+ display. So I’m making a comparison between the 2 products.I’ll start with the Cons:1. The FHD screen has both pros and cons. It’s super bright, contrast rich and has great color depth. And 1080P is more than enough for a 13 inch laptop. However, if here is only one major complain about this laptop, it would be the poor color calibration of the screen. It feels greenish even without comparing with my Dell XPS 13, which by the way is calibrated very well out of the box. Here’s how I tuned my screen: First, remove the ‘Asus splendid’ software, because it prevents any manual adjustment to…
