It’s almost a year now when I bought my Asus Zenbook UX530U for my blogging and online video content creation work. I’m happy with the performance of this light but powerful notebook for use with my video editing, a bit of gaming and writing tasks.
All premium Asus Laptop units like ROG and Zenbooks are covered with 2 years warranty as part of Asus Premium Care program. The notebook should have been purchased from an authorized local reseller, the warranty has not been voided, and the serial number can be verified through the ASUS system database or registered on-line.
During the 2 years period, there is one free of charge preventive maintenance (PM) that can be availed. I was invited to try out this preventive maintenance so I went to the Asus HQ to get my notebook serviced.
This is what they did to my notebook for PM.
