The Zenbook UX32VD comes with a 0.500 TB 5400 rpm hard-drive split into OS and data partitions. A permanently-installed 24 GB SSD provides caching. I'm still using the original storage arrangement because I'm waiting for prices on 0.5 TB SSDs to drop to a reasonable level. If you're looking for an SSD today, this deal was on TR's front page:$200

The ultrabook is easy to carry around in its nylon pouch. I stick it, the charger and a small Logitech VX nano mouse in my camera bag or suitcase when I'm traveling. When I was using mine for work on a business trip, I left the charger and mouse in the hotel room and just used the battery and touchpad (no gaming on the job). You could fit the accessories in a large pocket if you wanted. With the screen backlight turned down from the original setting and aggressive power management enabled, the battery lasts through several hours of use. It automatically switches between this mode and full-tilt operation when it senses that the charger has been plugged in.
