ASUS ZenBook UX330UA-FB100T 13.3 inch QHD+ Notebook - (Quartz Grey)

Apple MacBook Air (MJVE2LL/A) Early 2015
  • The 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor may not seem like a very powerful CPU, but I'm always amazed at how fast it actually is.
  • Everything I've done on my Mac has been handled flawlessly by this CPU.
  • There's a lot of power behind the 1.6 GHz, more than you would expect from a CPU clocked at that speed.
  • This is the most fastest 1.6 GHz processor i have ever seen!
  • Its incredible! So fast processor for 1.6 GHz!

  • The performance of the SSD is great. It is so much faster than a traditional hard drive it's not even funny.
  • Opening up apps are Instant coping files are fast and really this SSD just makes my mac fly.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS ZenBook UX330UA-FB100T 13.3 inch QHD+ Notebook - (Quartz Grey)
  • High-quality ports, work well, no complaints.
  • The ports are conveniently located, so the cables are not tangled.
  • Good quality ports, cables are inserted securely into them.
  • I would like more usb ports to connect all my devices.
  • The laptop has not enough usb ports. But they work great.
Apple MacBook Air (MJVE2LL/A) Early 2015
  • We added an USB optical drive, and I partitioned the hard drive and boot-camped Windows 10. Our niece is now compatible with other students on Windows and she excels with OS X.
  • Nice to have 3 usb ports, i am sure thats enough for good work.
  • Quality is the best i have ever seen, that cables, design, lightweight, ports, camera, everithing!
  • No HDMI port built into the Mac.
  • Sure in the future usb type C will become a standard but only having that one usb type C port for power and data is inefficient.
