ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4558U (2.8 GHz) 8 GB Memory 256 GB SSD Intel Iris Graphics 5100 13.3
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Was Bought one for use with my company.

Far too many good things here:

-Smaller than Macbook Air 13
-As powerful as macbook pro 13
-Raid 0 worked out of box
-1440p IPS panel is indescribably beautiful and clear.
- i7 4558u is best in class for a 13 inch chassis
-When running intensive tasks fans are dead quiet
-Speakers surprisingly loud/clear for 13 inch chassis
-Asus software minimal and mostly useful

The REALLY good things:
-Touchpad is good and the asus software is a benefit to windows 8
- Keyboard is easy to use, especially considering form factor
-Panel is bright and works well in all environments

Overall a beautiful and powerful ultrabook. It sets a very high standard for not only the quality of a computer, but the amount of power we can expect in a 13 inch form factor.

Cons: Not even cons list:
-Battery life is good but not amazing, which is still impressive given the 28w TDP of the chip used in this laptop.
-Web cam is average

Pros: Fast and powerful.
1. i7
2. GT 555m
3. 750gb hard drive
4. USB 3.0
5. Good speakers with decent bass
6. quality case
7. Does not overheat.
8. Excellent, comfortable keyboard.

Lenovo did a hell of a job putting this thing together, it not only has the hardware but a lot of little embellisments like the speakers and the case that just make it perfect.

Cons: Only cons I can think of are very minor:

Trackpad is decent but not great and it is off center.
Some of the buttons are small and oddly placed but its just something to get used to.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned before this thing does not get that hot at all. Lenovo has done an excellent job with this one. Even while gaming it stays decently cool.

ALSO: They don't give which gt 555m it is so I'll list that.
Shaders: 96
Clock speed: 735mhz
1GB DDR5 Vram
128 bit memory bus

ASUS GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) DirectX 11 ENGT430/DI/1GD3(LP) 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Used to upgrade my brothers computer from a 256mb 8600gt. Doubled performance for him for nice and cheap. WoW and LoL play great now. Can handle 30 fps on 1600x900 on ultra settings, turn off shadows and a few things and it gets a steady 40-50 fps

Cons: Not the powerhouse of the low end like the 5670 but mine only cost me $60

Other Thoughts: Gets a bit hot but not really close to overheating. This in a case with exactly 1 100mm fan.
