ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T Intel Core i7 4558U (2.8GHz) 8GB Memory 256GB SSD 13.3
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great CPU with IRIS Graphics . . .
Fast SSD, but in RAID . . . .
Pretty efficient keyboard for such a shallow device . . .
Fast, Furious, and Efficient!

Cons: SSD . . . .very limited and costly replacement and/or upgrade.
SSD . . . .exceptionally limited availability on retail shelves.
The SSD is of the M.2 variety (stands for 20mm wide) with NGFF size (Next Generation Form Factor), but they come in varying lengths that are very unit/notebook specific.
A few models/sizes are: 2028, 2042,2060, and 2080 with the last two characters representing length . . . .hence the AUS UX301 series laptops use the M.2.2060 NFGG in 128GB x 2 and 256GB x2 their respective models.

The SSD in the UX301 is user replaceable, but appears that ASUS (at least 4 now) has the M.2 2060 production controlled for their benefit making them hard to come by unless one happens to fins a used one from a salvage dawg somewhere.

I personally would remove the RAID Array as well since it doesn't affect the machine performance that much, and provides for a non-recoverable device should one of either drive have a failure.

Other Thoughts: This is personal experience that I am sharing . . .and want to add that a back-up even two weeks out of date is better than no back-up at all!

I have since obtained a readily available M.2 2080 NGFF and put it in a USB 3.0 enclosure (specifically designed for the M.2 20xx device) to use as a continuous backup device.

Still, and overall, a great laptop.

LG Super Multi Blue WP40NB30 Slim Portable Blu-ray Rewriter with 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback &M-DISC Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, compact, light, and quiet.
It has done all that I can ask . . . .
. . . .my perspective would be using an i7-4558u CPU
with 8gb RAM and SSD technology (buffering)
I think the is what it needs to be!

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: It has a two edged mission with me . . .
1. It provides a mobile capability for BD to my company business call-outs. (small home based computer repair)
2. Provides a BD Playback for our travel trailer entertainment system for those rainy days at the campground.

ARCTIC Alpine 11 Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: They work . . .
They do what is needed. . . .
Inexpensive Shelf Stock

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have a small home based computer consulting/repair shop and these fans are great for late night or week-end repairs.
Really makes my shop shine when I can pull new stock off the shelf at critical moments?
