    Is it possible to remove the thermal tape? Could it improve the air flow?

      It should be possible but I'm not allowed to on these review samples. Will double-check. Not sure of the impact without trying it; in theory, there's a reason they create the thermal design in this way.

    There might be a reason for them but there must be a design flaw if they need this. Other devices have open air intakes for good reasons. The fan/heatsink itself looks beefy to me for such an ultrabook. It would be interesting to see how it affects the cooling.

      They might have gone this route to make sure the laptop is properly cooled on Tablet mode, when the screen is closed over those intake grills. They ue the same design on their Flips, but also on the ZenBook S UX393, while the other ZenBooks go with a full or partially open back.

    The screen uniformity looks terrible. Left side is yellow, right side is pink.
