Asus ZenBook UX330CAK (UX330CA-FC006T) unboxing photos

We just got a brand new laptop – Asus ZenBook UX330C (UX330CAK / UX330CA-FC006T) Grey, 13.3″ FHD with English keyboard. It features Intel Core m3-y730 CPU, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD and Windows 10 Home 64-bit operating system that can easily can be changed to Linux. Also, it features “harman/kardon” speakers with very good sound quality for a such small laptop. Oh, and it weights 1.2 kg.

This laptop has great keyboard (one row enter key, not cluttered arrow keys, home, end, PgUp, PgDn on the arrows with Fn key), but power button is made like regular key in the keyboard. Will need to find a way to remap Delete to Insert, and Power to Delete key. See the photos below.

And notice the last screen – out of the box bloatware – TeamViewer, WPS Office, Dropbox, Evernote, Foxit PDF… and little click-fest (about 30 min.) to uninstall everything. Or install Ubuntu if you prefer more control of your laptop.

Dell PowerEdge R330 unboxing photos

Just got hands on cheap, but brand new Dell PowerEdge R330 with SAS 300GB 10K HDDs and redundant power supply. Photos below.

P.S. Dell Inc recently started to cripple low end RAID cards. In our case PERC H330 Integrated Raid controller comes without battery, thus it is not possible to enable write-back caching policy.
