We've been having some fun with the new Asus Zenbook UX32VD-DB71. Wendell and I did a full teardown. We were mainly doing this to replace the HDD. The 5400 RPM drive just doesn't cut it. Must have SSD speeds! With the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IPOS it freaking screams.
If you have an SSD that is thicker than 7mm you will need to modify it. In this video we disassemble the OCZ Vertex, remove the PCB from the enclosure, place some thick double-sided tape on the memory chips, and replace it without the bottom of the enclosure. It was extremely easy and the laptop is way faster now. Also note that Ghost will not work to make a copy of your HDD. You will need to use Clonezilla or a similar program. We just decided to do a clean Windows install (so we could upgrade to Windows 7 64 Pro). This was a bit of a pain because we had to download over 1 GB of drivers and such from the Asus website.
Here is the OCZ Vertex III benchmark (ATTO):
Insanely fast... over 500 MB/s read and write for the larger files.
We also did some benchmarking. Skyrim was around 30 fps on the "Ultra" setting. Diablo III and Starcraft II also did well.
Let us know what you think. If you have questions post them here!
