| p.1 #14 · ASUS Zenbook UX32VD-DH71, Anyone? |
Alright, finally got it in! My initial impression is that this thing is pretty badass. Build quality is great, the keyboard is easy to type on, and the trackpad is very precise and responsive. The screen lifts effortlessly, and lays back down with a soft clap, instead of slamming down like most laptops. It's not paper thin like lots of ultrabooks, but enough to still be slim inside the supplied padded carrying envelope (which is really nice looking).
Dropped in a 128GB Samsung 840 SSD and 8GB RAM (very easy to do), though the RAM didn't take for whatever reason. But even with only 2GB, this thing FLIES on the SSD! Spent some time installing drivers and Windows updates, and the computer restarts in 22 seconds. :o Haven't timed a cold boot, but it's even faster. Reads quickly from USB 3.0 thumb drives, and the Wifi is nice and fast, matching my ethernet-connected PC. Even the speakers, with built in sound chambers, are much fuller than you'd expect from a laptop.
Oh yeah, and the screen! While initially off in calibration (yellowish), it's easy to see that it's top notch. Very bright, with colors that are nicely saturated, and blacks that are deeper than my desktop monitor's.
This will make an excellent portable workstation. Can't wait to get everything completely set up and ready to go. I'll report back with my findings as far as ACR/LR/PS performance, and how well the screen calibrates.
