You need to make a system image using some image backup program(I recommend macrium reflect free version) & then restore it to larger/newer ssd.

If your are going to be holding on to the 256gb ssd, then its probably a good idea to buy a M.2 Usb adapter.

1. You will first install the 500gb ssd on to the m.2 usb adapter.
2. Connect it to your laptop using usb cable.
3. Use a tool such as AOMEI or Samsung magician to clone the 256 gb ssd partitions to the 500 gb ssd.
4. Replace the ssd in the laptop with the 500 gb sdd in the adapter.
5. Boot your laptop and make sure everything is hunk dory.
6. Place the old 256 gb ssd in the adapter and use it as an external storage.

You can probably import the adapter from Aliexpress. Link

You can use an NGFF to Sata adapter like the image below. This will allow you to keep the existing OS and have additional storage.

Post a small review here if you get some free time.There are many comments regarding touchpad issue for this model so use for some days with default driver & if issue comes up then update to latest driver from asus site.

well it will reach on 24th March. I live in Mizoram, so its going to take time. Will do a review soon. I mean, there is simply no substitute to this laptop even at Rs70k range. Guaranteed 10+hour battery with Wifi Netflix streaming, 98o grams weight, Core i5 8th Gen, 8Gb RAM, 256GB SSD... best for school and college students.

Yes, it's an amazing laptop at a very attractive price! Well idk if we'll really get above 10+ hr usage in real life tho lol.

I guess I'll have to review it before you because mine is arriving tomorrow :p. Should be in my hands by the evening...

Hello, I have a HP Pavilion g4 laptop which I bought around 6 years ago but recently, it's been overheating a lot while playing games. What's odd is the GPU temperature shoots up to 85 degrees when it should have normally been at around 70-75 degrees. The CPU temperature goes to an insanely high of about 98-99 degrees with the Tj Max temperature being at just 105 degrees. I have never encountered such temperatures before. Recently, when I visited a service centre, there were no problems with the fan, heat sink nor the dust. Also, there was no need to replace the thermal compound but I was advised to downgrade from windows 10 to 8.1 which I did later and the performance has been improved since then. It runs more quieter and cooler under casual load. But I still suspect the thermal compound has to be replaced? I'm not sure if that's the case, I might visit another service centre and ask for it but I highly doubt whether they would be having the spare parts for my laptop. Where else can I buy thermal compound if it's not available?

Ok guys so I've used my Zenbook 13 for two days now and.... it is just AMAZING!!

Idk what to say, everything about it feels great tbh, i love the screen, it's better than my 144hz gaming monitor and the battery life is straight up INSANE..

I don't even understand how this goes for 53,990 during sales, If it was priced as much as macbook air, people should still buy it, it's so premium... it looks really beautiful in rose gold!

Also it weighs super low, almost as much as my tablet lul.

Btw I still haven't faced the touchpad issue people talk about, not even once. I've used this for like 20 hours probably till now lol

Apple has brand value, they can sell inferior products for a high price. Still, Zenbooks aren't as good as XPS 13 or MacBooks (except for KB), but it is a great budget ultrabook.

Congrats
 
Inferior in terms of specs,not in terms of build quality & overall user experience.
They can make those inferior as well & still sell products, butterfly KB is an example. I do agree, general build is top notch in MacBooks. OS is still user dependent, I can never settle with Mac OS, people who use it for just general tasks can settle with it. It is more stable than Win10.

hi, my Zenbook arrived today. This laptop fan starts spinning loudly for no reason, even when i am just downloading stuffs.. and by default its very noisy.
My battery is full now and when i hover my mouse over it it says 3hr 40mins left. WTFFF i thought this was supposed to a whole day laptop. I am very pisseddd
The ASUS giftbox app is stuck in loading screen for almost 1 HOUR!!!!!

edit: okay, after a restart, the fan noise is gone, its dead silent, and battery life shows 5hrs remaining. Man, i guess ill give my thoughts after using it for few days.
edit: ok it started again, fans kicking off like a mad man after around 10 mins of usage.

Open task manager & check cpu/ram/ssd usage,I suspect some win 10 task going on in background.
