My search for a new computer is over! ░░░░░UM, WOW!!!!░░░░░͡° ͜ʖ ͡°Let me just say that I have researched just about every device sold in the United States that has a 13 inch screen in my quest to replace my dying laptop. It’s been a thoroughly exhaustive search. But the search is now over! I’ve tested every device from Chromebooks to Mac Books to giving up and just reading a book. The Zenbook is where my quest ends!I just got my Zenbook tonight and it has been a great experience right from the unboxing. I’ll start with the packaging because it deserves mentioning. The Amazon box was huge, the size of a VCR from 1981. Inside that was a plain box for the Zenbook about the size of 1995 VCR. Inside that box was a very nice fancy box about the size of a board game box. That box was well cushioned inside the 1995 VCR box. Inside that was the Zenbook. So the thing ships VERY well protected from drops by the…

Beautifully constructed lightweight Ultrabook at an unbeatable price point. I’m keeping it!!! Recently purchased the UX305FA and it arrived yesterday. Keep in mind this is a very preliminary review as I’ve had the laptop for less than 24 hours. I plan to update this review as I use it more. Feel free to ask questions and I’ll try to respond. I’m going to try to be as objective as possible here and point out pro’s and con’s that might affect everyone, not just my own preferences.The good:-Size: This baby is thin!! I keep seeing publications reference it somewhere in the 12-13mm range. I have no idea how to use the metric system. This translates to roughly half an inch thin. It’s also very light, tipping the scales at a minuscule 2.5lbs.-Noise: Or I should say, a lack of noise. The CPU has no fan, the hard drive is solid state, and there is no optical drive – meaning this computer essentially has no moving parts. It’s strange using a machine that’s totally silent when you’re not typing on it. I love it already.-Price: This device retails for $699…

Zenbook – Aesthetic. Portable. Powerful. 10/10 Linux Machine! Wow! Thoroughly impressed by this ultrabook. At $699, this is a steal. I’ve been using it for 1 day so far, so these are my first impressions.TL;DR:At $699, this is a steal. Works great as a linux laptop. 10/10 machine.Linux Compatibility – 9/10The first thing I did was remove Windows 8.1 and replace it with Linux. I currently am running Ubuntu 14.10. Everything has worked out of the box except for 2 minor things: the brightness control using the function key (fn+f5, fn+f6) and some text display issue. I solved the brightness control by installing xbacklight (sudo apt-get install xbacklight) and mapping xbacklight -dec 10 to the F3 key and xbacklight -inc 10 to the F4 key. Also, on occasion, the display of text messes up. This is usually fixed with by simply adjusting the size of the window. This may be caused by me installing themes and not using the default theme. I have also installed Cinnamon desktop environment and it works great. I am using…
