Asus ZenBook UX305: With Windows 10, it suddenly makes perfect sense

rabbitheart

For those interested in Linux:

Just wanted to note I run Fedora 22 on this model, as a coding/sysadmin and writing machine, with light gaming (mostly I play stuff like Game Dev Tycoon & Binding of Isaac; I'm not a big gamer), and it runs perfectly. Ran great with initial install, just have to fix the screen brightness buttons.

The major issue I've had thus far is getting Scrivener to initially run, but that's because the Scrivener beta for Linux is kind of bad installation-wise, and once I got it working I've had zero issues.

Honestly, it's a terrific computer for the price. I used to be insanely jealous of my boyfriend's Macbook Air, but this is lighter, just as effective for my work, and well, not a Mac (sorry Macs). I adore it.

FWIW, I wouldn't run it with Windows 10. I only played around with the W10 install a little, but it wasn't as smooth as Fedora. I'm not a Windows person, though, either, at least for laptops, and Fedora is a lighter system.
