Asus UX Series

Asus Zenbook UX32LN-R4029H

With the recent announced UX21 and UX31 Ultrabooks, provided by the Taiwanese manufacturer Asus and marketed under the self-created term Zenbook, the already existing UX series moves back to the foreground. In 2009 Asus showed the slim notebook UX50V with energy efficient hardware and a 15-inch display. Today, three years after the first device of this series Asus presents two devices in the Ultrabook-class with 11.6 - and 13.3-inch display. The category Ultrabook itself was launched by Intel to the fire up the market of the top dog Apple with its MacBook Air 11 and MacBook Air 13.

Significant milestones for this project are a sleek design, fast and energy-saving hardware as well as a decent battery lifetime. Asus uses a alloy-chassis, a solid state drive and a lithium-polymer battery, which is integrated. In the first reviews for the two new devices  the available ports, the bright screen and the minimalistic background noises in idle-usage models are highlighted. Disadvantages are the reflective surface of the display and the missing option to expand the integrated hardware.

Asus offers the Zenbook UX21 (11.6 inches) and the UX31 with the larger 13.3-inch screen from 999 € (MSRP) upwards. In regard to other devices you’ll see that Asus only sell premium devices at the moment. Acer offers the Aspire S3 Ultrabook already from 799 € (MSRP) upwards. But in comparison the devices from Asus get a better result in the most reviews out there.

76% Review Asus UX50V Notebook | Notebookcheck
Judge a book by its cover? Asus wants to poach in the starter sector of multimedia notebooks with glossy piano lacquer, a snazzy design and a switchable graphic solution. Or don't they? Is the 15.6 inch notebook UX50V more an office device that looks good but is barely suitable for multimedia due to the weak hardware? We released the designer laptop on our test course and made our verdict without being blinded by its looks.

Although attractive, we weren’t hugely impressed with the keyboard, while the design of the trackpad buttons is woeful. And despite its ability to switch to a discrete graphics chip, the Nvidia Geforce G105M isn’t up to much in terms of gaming. If you’re happy sacrificing power and a fair wedge of cash for style, the UX50V will probably appeal. But we think Asus has its work cut out in persuading customers to shell out £999 for its latest catwalk queen.

The Asus UX50V-RX05 is closer to an oversized Netbook than a mainstream laptop. If you took the Asus Eee PC 1005HA and doubled its weight and price, you'd basically end up with the UX50V. This 15.6-inch laptop shares many design cues with the Eee PC 1005HA, with its sleek profile, tapered edges, and glossy chassis. Unfortunately, it also shares roughly the same performance profile as a Netbook, thanks to its underpowered, single-core CPU. With its low-end single-core processor, dedicated GeForce graphics, and 16:9 display, the unquestionably sleek, entertainment-minded Asus UX50V-RX05 is a good fit for a specific user profile: the movie lover/sometime gamer.

  According to Asus, the UX series is 'an intricately crafted series of notebooks that provide both contemporary style and effortless computing on the go'. In human speak, that means they're thin and light, look awesome and have funky new components. The UX50V, reviewed here, is being sold by online retailers for around £910. The Asus UX50V is great to look at, but it's let down by relatively average performance and design features that detract from the overall user experience. Its shiny finish will appeal to magpies and those with design degrees, but the cheaper, slightly less attractive MSI X340 -- or indeed an Apple MacBook -- might be better options.

  A stylish and high-quality offering from Asus, but not the fastest machine. Asus' UX range is aimed at the high end of the laptop market, and targets rivals such as Sony's VAIO range. The UX50V is a compact and stylish 15.6-inch machine, offering impressive quality and a distinctive design. The Asus UX50V offers a lot of style and quality for the money. It's also a comfortable choice with decent 3D power on offer. Whether it's stunted by the single-core processor remains to be seen, but it's still an impressive start.

Perfection. The power version of the Zenbook, with a Core i7, is as handy as a netbook but faster than most multimedia machines. How is this possible with a build height of 17 millimeters? The lightning-fast ADATA SSD sets the standard higher than ever.
Asus Zenbook UX21 Ultrabook, The New Thin
Source: Hot Hardware English
From one point of view, the Asus Zenbook UX21's closest competitor would be the 11-inch Apple MacBook Air. Looking at specifications and features alone, the UX21 lines up quite nicely versus Apple's offering. In about the same price range (as our machine was configured), you get additional wired Ethernet connectivity and standard external display output, both of which aren't options for Apple's product.

ASUS Zenbook (UX21) Review
Source: AnandTech English
Given the lack of any Intel-specific Ultrabook software I'm hesitant to even call this thing an Ultrabook. There's also the fact that, at least in the case of Intel Rapid Start Technology, being more of an Ultrabook in that sense would've been a step back in performance. In fact, I see no real reason to use that brand at all—which is likely why ASUS ended up calling it a Zenbook to begin with.

The Zenbook is Asus' first foray into the Ultrabook world, offering powerful guts wrapped up in a super-slim and sturdy aluminium shell. The Asus Zenbook UX21 is not only slim, light and attractive but also offers fantastic performance for a very reasonable price. It's very difficult to find much wrong with it.

The Asus ZenBook has a lot of promise and it'll be interesting to see if it lives up to its stated five hour battery life. Both the UX21 and UX31 will be available on October 21st, so it's likely to beat rival ultrabooks from Acer and Toshbia to market. Even better, at £849 inc VAT for the 11in model and £949 for the 13in version, the Zenbook either matches or undercuts Apple's pricing for the MacBook Air range. We would be lying if we said we weren’t tempted. We'll bring you a full review as soon as we can.

100% Asus ZenBook UX21 and UX31 hands-on first look review
Source: IT Reviews English
Lush to look at, the ZenBook just oozes class - which is why the price, while still placing these models into the premium bracket, came as a bit of a surprise. The 11.6in UX21 costs £849, while the 13.3in UX31 sells for £999 - coincidentally, the prices of Apple's two entry-level MacBook Air models. But spec for spec, the ZenBooks outclass their Apple competition by some margin, doubling the capacity of the SSD to 128GB and upping the processor in the £999 model to an Intel Core i7 against the Air's i5. Expensive they may be, but to those seeking the ultimate in PC style we reckon the new Asus ZenBooks are worth every penny. Check back on ITReviews soon, when we put the ZenBooks through their paces in a full lab-tested review.

The UX21 is a seriously impressive device. Its design is stunning and it packs in all the essentials for a great ultraportable notebook, or ultrabook. We would've liked to see Asus squeeze a memory card reader in there, and ThunderBolt would've been particularly nice, but these are hardly to be expected. All that remains to be seen is how its battery life holds up and how much it retails for when it arrives later this year.

Asus’ 13in Zenbook comes very close to being the ultimate Ultrabook. It sports a nice design, solid aluminium build, superb connectivity, high-resolution screen, great keyboard and touchpad, class-leading audio and premium accessories such as the stylish sleeve – and all for under £1,000. Given this, its lack of keyboard backlighting can easily be overlooked. Unfortunately, its screen’s poor viewing angles are trickier to forgive, keeping the UX31 from a Recommended Award by a kitten’s whisker.

There's no doubt that the Asus Zenbook UX31 is a stylish and solid laptop that should appeal to those of you who want good performance out of a thin-and-light unit. However, we feel that it has been rushed to market and that its user friendliness suffers as a result. Its input devices are not very good, it doesn't have a backlit keyboard, we found it uncomfortable to type on and we had to fiddle with drivers to get things working properly out of the box. This is disappointing, especially considering all the hype behind this product.

The bad points? I don’t like the restricted viewing angle on the display, and the case doesn’t immediately snap shut when you close it in your hands - the Zenbook just gapes back open a little unless you put it on a tabletop and press the case shut for a couple of seconds. The good points? Everything else: usability, connectivity, build quality, slimline profile and power management. The UX31E is a cracking good Ultrabook and worth the money.

We like the Asus Zenbook UX31 quite a bit. It's exquisitely thin, superbly light at 2.86 pounds, and it's gorgeous. The build quality is top notch--in fact it's one of the best made notebooks we've seen outside of Apple's store. The laptop is very fast and could work as a main machine if you're not a 3D gamer. For a 13" ultraportable it has a better than average selection of ports, and we love the HDMI and USB 3.0 ports in particular. Though most components are soldered onto the motherboard, we appreciate that it's not hard to open up the notebook to access components. We have no qualms with the keyboard though it's not our favorite, and we actually like the trackpad after updating the firmware and drivers. Lastly, the 1600 x 900 display really sets the Zenbook apart from the crowd and is more conducive to doing serious work on the go. Finally, there's a MacBook Air for Windows folks. That's not to say the Air isn't an excellent machine to run Windows, but the $200 price savings, Windows keyboard, HDMI and USB 3.0 combined with the higher resolution display are a good counter to the Air.

There's no doubt that the Zenbook looks and feels great and has the advantage of a high-resolution screen. It's no MacBook Air-killer though. Its battery doesn't last as long as the Air's and the keyboard and touchpad can be frustrating to use. Even if you're tied to Windows, there are better alternatives such as Toshiba's similarly price 1.5kg Portégé R830 which has far superior battery life. The Zenbook will only appeal to those that want a Windows ultraportable that looks like a MacBook Air and are willing to put up with the Zenbook's flaws to get one. While it's possible Ultrabooks from other manufacturers will do a better job, it'll be tough as the MacBook Air isn't just a collection of components but a result of tight integration between hardware and software. We'll have to wait and see.

If you need to create content on the move and require Windows 7, the Zenbook is a good option and is definitely more useful than any tablet or hybrid. The £999 price tag is not cheap, but it's still £100 less than the 13in MacBook Air model with a Core i7 processor and 128GB SSD. However, it might be worth waiting to see whether the Zenbook is bested by Ultrabook offerings from Acer, Lenovo and Toshiba.

Whether it’s these nagging design details, or the more serious flaws in its construction, the Zenbook UX31E makes some big trade-offs. There’s no doubt it gets some things emphatically right – the beauty, brawn and stamina are all worthy of praise – but it’s inconsistent in the most crucial aspects of any laptop’s design. That makes it impossible to fully recommend right now, but one thing is for sure: the battle of the Ultrabooks has only just begun.

With the Asus UX31E, all the fuss about Ultrabooks starts to make sense. Its all-metal chassis, cut from a single sheet of aluminum, is undeniably handsome. And while this attractive metal wedge that’s just .71 inches at its thickest brings to mind the fine craftsmanship of a MacBook Air, it’s by no means a knockoff. The UX31E possesses a unique character that’s admirable in its own right. And at $1,050, it’s $250 less than its similarly spec’d Apple counterpart.

ASUS Zenbook UX31 review
Source: Engadget English
After the first Ultrabook left us feeling lukewarm, we grew hopeful that maybe, just maybe, ASUS' Zenbooks would get it right. While the S3 has little more to offer than a low price point, the UX31 has an arresting design and SATA III SSD that promises superior battery life and performance.

70% ASUS Zenbook UX31 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ASUS Zenbook UX31 takes a lot of what we loved about the 13-inch MacBook Air--a wafer-thin aluminum chassis, fast performance, instant resume, and good battery life--and adds even better audio and a higher-resolution display. Even better, the UX31 costs $200 less than the Air. The design of the ASUS also looks and feels more premium, thanks to the brushed-metal treatment. However, while we can live with not having a backlit keyboard, the touchpad simply doesn't work as well as it should--and you interact with that the most. The Zenbook UX31 is our favorite Ultrabook so far, but the Air is still our top ultraportable.

After spending some time with the ASUS Zenbook we must saw that we are amazed with how responsive and fast this notebook feels and it looks gorgeous. ASUS has really stepped up the game when it comes to fit and finish of their products and the quality of the great workmanship is really starting to pay off. The ASUS Zenbook UX31E is amazingly thin and after traveling through the airport with one it is hard to want to use anything besides an Ultrabook now!

Source: Fudzilla English
Intel's ultrabook platform and the ASUS ZenBook UX31E are fine examples of a sleek, minimalist computing philosophy that is much more than the typical critic's response of "a MacBook Air plus Microsoft Windows," and we believe the ultrabook ecosystem will only become more enticing to consumers as average selling prices (ASPs) decrease over time.

This laptop is a perfect example. In some ways, it is excellent. Battery life is good, the weight and size of the laptop leads to easy portability, the display is above average, and performance is within striking distance of larger laptops. Among the first run of production Ultrabooks the UX31 stands out. It’s more portable and quicker than the majority of the competition.

Perhaps the most exciting aspects of the Zenbook are the near-instant boot and wake times—two seconds from standby mode—and the amount of time that the Zenbook can stay at the ready.

60% ASUS Zenbook UX31 Review: MacBook Air Killer?
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The UX31 is one of the most refreshing PCs I’ve reviewed in a long time. The design and quality are truly outstanding; ASUS clearly went all-out. The sheer thinness and light weight of the notebook make you want to buy it as soon as it’s picked up. Another major highlight of the notebook is the excellent 1600x900 screen resolution which is remarkable for a 13.3-inch notebook. I was also impressed with the good sound quality and six hours of battery life. The real downsides of the notebook concern the keyboard and touchpad; both take getting used to. The keyboard requires extra pressure; the keys must be 100% pressed otherwise keystrokes do not register. I mastered this after a few days. The touchpad needed a driver update before it became predictable, and even then it is not particularly accurate. I also wish the clicks were quieter. Other things to consider with this notebook are the lack of user-upgradeable parts (there are none) and scarcity of ports (that can be solved with adapters, however).

ASUS Zenbook UX31 Ultrabook Review
Source: Hardware Canucks English
The ASUS Zenbook is one of those products that PC users just want to like. It is slim, well built, performs reasonably well and incorporates all of the design marquees that make the Apple competition “unique” without the high cost normally associated with fruit-labeled notebooks. Unfortunately, in a headlong drive to make a bona fide Mac competitor, ASUS has fallen into some of the very pitfalls they initially set out to avoid.

The Asus Zenbook UX21E is thinner, lighter and much more fun to use than I thought possible for an 11in notebook. Built to last and to impress, it manages to look amazing and cute at the same time. If the viewing angle on the display had been a few degrees wider, I would have rated the computer 90 per cent: I liked it that much. Asus also deserves kudos for including a tough slipcase, a USB-to-Ethernet adapter and a mini VGA-to-VGA adapter in the box, rather than charging for these as optional extras.

The UX21E is slightly disappointing.

While the UX31E – 13-3-inch version – is almost on a par with the same-size Air, the same can't be said for the UX21E.

It wakes from sleep in two seconds and cold-boots in 21, excellent. It even auto-saves documents when battery life falls to 5%. Thrashing the UX21 delivers shutdown after 2hrs 24 mins, buzt sensible usage gives over five hours of battery life. The UX21 costs $1199.99. Its big brother, the 13″ Zenbook UX31, features an i7 processor, but performancewise there’s nothing in it.

So we’re going to make it really easy for you readers to decide whether or not to get yourself an ASUS Zenbook UX31. It's really sexy, very robust, and it's an Ultrabook. Just in case you haven’t caught up on reading our Ultrabook guide, we pit the reference recommendations against the ASUS counterpart - Ultrabooks should ideally measure under 20mm in thickness (UX31 is 17mm), weigh under 1.5kg (UX31 is 1.3kg) and they're fast (instant resume with SSDs).

The Zenbook UX31 is priced at Rs. 89,999 (MRP). For those on-the-go; a powerful battery coupled with portability is always a brilliant feature to have in your laptop and the Zenbook does exactly that. However, the biggest drawback the UX31 has is the glitchy keyboard and trackpad. If you’re paying big bucks for a notebook, you’d pretty much get at least a decent keyboard. In comparison to the Lenovo U300s, this one definitely has better looks and performance. But, simply for the want of a better keyboard and trackpad, we would recommend the U300s over the Zenbook UX31.

Ultimately the ASUS Zenbook is a tough sell in this market. The competition from Apple’s side is very tough, despite the higher price tag, as many people will see value added (and brand name) with the MacBook Air. Meanwhile those who don’t want to shell out AED 6k on a slim laptop have a much cheaper, and still respectably fast, alternative with the Toshiba Portege Z830.

Source: AnandTech English
We’ve now looked at three 13.3” ultrabooks, plus the MacBook Air 11 and 13, and the ASUS UX21E. I’ve also had some hands on time at a local store with a Samsung Series 9, so that covers much of the ultrabook market right now. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to see any of the Lenovo IdeaPad U300/U400 offerings or any other ultrabooks in person (yet), so I’ll have to leave them out of consideration.

In contrast to the S3, here the casing hasn’t been designed to create the impression of being in aluminium. At last, a serious competitor to the Apple MacBook Air 13.3-inch! While Asus still has a few things to perfect (battery life, audio and screen quality) to put itself on an equal footing with its competitor, the UX31E ultrabook is more powerful, has better cooling and, best of all, costs less.

The apps look and run great, Windows 7 boots very fast and shuts down quickly, basic graphic tasks are being handled very well by the Intel HD 3000 chip and the fact that the laptop weighs next to nothing and is incredibly thin makes it worth the higher price tag. It’s main rival is the 13.3″ Macbook Pro which oddly enough starts at “just” 1299$ but we reccomend reading the whole review and decide for yourself whether the ZENBOOK is worth your bucks.

The Asus Zenbook UX31-RSL8 tops the spiritual progenitors of the ultrabook category, the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch and the Samsung Series 9. While it may not be as affordable as the Acer Aspire S3 or the Protégé Z835-P330, it more than makes up for it in superior construction, a fuller feature set, and stronger performance. With models on the horizon, it may face some stiff competition soon, but for the time being, the Zenbook UX31-RSL8 is our Editors' Choice and the ultrabook to beat.

Review: Asus Zenbook UX31 ultrabook
Source: Geek.com English
The i5 version of the UX31, which was tested for this review is available for just under $1,000 which makes it on-par with the rest of the Ultrabook realm. When compared to the 13″ Macbook Air, the Zenbook is $300 cheaper, but given the lack of backlit keys, lower quality microphone and touchpad, and the core i5 processor over the Air’s core i7, the decrease in price is matched by the decrease in quality.

90% The Ultrabook style leader: ASUS UX31E review
Source: APC Mag English
One of the Intel requirements for Ultrabooks is anti-theft hardware. Used in combination with anti-theft software provided by companies such as McAfee, this hardware communicates with an Intel security server and is able to shut down and remotely lock the notebook if it's stolen. But while anti-theft technology is part of the Ultrabook spec, it's a premium service that's purchased through the notebook retailer, not Intel or ASUS.

Source: PC Advisor English
We’re inclined to affirm that we do believe in love at first sight. But since that initial look was of the laptop that launched this copy, our heart does stay with the MacBook Air. Make no mistake though, the Asus UX21E Zenbook is the best copy of any Apple portable we’ve seen to date, with fantastic all-metal build and signs of the kind of attention to detail that’s rarely seen outside the Mac maker’s design labs.

Source: Techreview Source English
It's hard to imagine a lighter, more elegant, closer-to-desktop-performance package than the Asus Zenbook UX21E-DH52. On the other hand, it's easy to imagine a better value proposition, particularly with both the Toshiba Z835-P330 and HP Folio 13 offering more spacious 13.3-inch screens; more comfortable, backlit keyboards; and lower prices with virtually equal portability (okay, you might notice the HP Folio 13's additional pound in your briefcase, but you'll never notice the Toshiba's additional four ounces). The Asus UX31-RSL8, too, gives you a lot more than the UX21E-DH52 for only $50 extra. For now, consider the UX21E-DH52 as a status symbol—about as small and as stylish as laptops get.

60% Asus Zenbook UX21E ultrabook review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The UX21E offers great performance at a reasonable price point of £850, with accessories included. However, it is still difficult to recommend the device to traveling business users based on the limited battery life and very poor trackpad. Business users who are considering investing in an ultrabook should be advised that the Zenbook also ships without enterprise friendly features including Intel's Core vPro technology, a Trusted Platform Module chip and fingerprint scanner. All are included in the Toshiba Portégé Z830 ultrabook together with Windows 7 Professional as standard. The Portégé is better suited to the needs of business users even though it is £300 pricier at £1,155.

Miracles happen. The first rumors about Asus' new, revised Zenbook series made some waves: Full-HD IPS displays in skinny 13" cases. Hard to believe: non-reflective display surfaces! The rumors turned out to be true, in front of us sits an Asus UX32VD, one of the first specimen of the series with the sought after display panel.
Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD is one of the first Ultrabooks in the brave new frontier that marries typical Ultrabook specs with upgradable parts and dedicated graphics. Our advice? Wait for the second or third generation where dedicated graphics performance improves along with battery life. The NVidia GT620M doesn't offer enough graphics prowess to offset the drop in battery life and the UX32VD isn't a serious gaming machine.

Laptop shopping is always about making compromises, trading computing power for battery life or reducing size and weight at the cost of extra features.With a Core i7 CPU, discrete graphics, and a full HD screen, the Asus Zenbook UX23VD is pretty close to being the ultrabook that has it all, but you'll pay for all those features.

One of the coolest-looking of the original generation of ultrabook laptops was the Asus Zenbook UX31E. When we knocked the original UX31 Zenbook for copying the MacBook Air without offering a significant discount, we expected the follow-up Asus ultrabook to -- like similar laptops from HP, Toshiba, and Dell -- come in at well under $1,000.

Source: Maximum PC English
The thing is, you can get all these neat features, as well as an SSD, in the new Zenbook UX31A, for $200 less, just by forgoing the discrete graphics. And frankly, we think that if portable gaming is what you’re after, you’re better served by a small powerhouse like Origin’s Eon11-S (reviewed last month), as opposed to a rig that tries to be both an Ultrabook and a gaming machine, where one or both facets are bound to be compromised.

Asus clearly has engineers who know what they’re doing. They are interested in high-resolution displays, attractive exteriors and excellent performance. The UX32 is an engineering feat no other Ultrabook on the market can match.Unfortunately, the laptop fell short in our battery life testing. That’s a serious problem. It’s fair to assume someone buying a portable laptop expects it to offer great battery life. The UX32 is merely adequate.

The newest ZENBOOK UX32VD is a generally impressive Ultrabook with plenty of great reasons why you should buy it ... and at least one reason why you might want to pass. The beautiful 1080p IPS display is quite possibly the best screen on any current 13-inch notebook. The dedicated graphics mean you can play modern games or use that additional performance to accelerate graphics-intense applications like Photoshop or video editing software. In short, if ASUS fixes the SSD cache issue then the UX32VD is quite simply the best Windows-based alternative to the MacBook Air.

Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD Ultrabook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
Overall, we like the Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD. Our small gripes aside, it's a strong performer with real graphics punch. The system looks great and its brushed metal chassis is classy. The backlit keyboard looks positively great in dark or low-light settings. We didn't have any trouble with heat while the system was on flat surfaces, and it didn't get uncomfortably warm during lap duty. Importantly, the UX32VD feels sturdy, despite being a very thin ultrabook.

All in all, even with a less-than-bodacious battery, the Zenbook Prime easily cops an Editors' Choice for its wonderful 1080p IPS screen, swift performance, and at least moderately game-worthy graphics. It's a premium-priced choice in the ultrabook arena, but it delivers a combination of cool design and potent productivity, especially for photo or video buffs, that'll be hard to top.

So what's the final verdict? The Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71 is a very, very good system for content creators in the field. It's light, has a brilliant 1080p screen, and is compact. A photographer will enjoy the speedy photo editing capabilities of the system, video editors will love the Core i7 power of the system, and both will find the 500GB hard drive a good thing. The system will also keep multimedia power users happy, for mostly the same reasons plus the full-sized HDMI port in such a compact laptop.

The $1,299 ASUS Zenbook Prime UX32VD is sort of a niche Ultrabook for those not satisfied with Intel's graphics performance, and on that basis it succeeds. You get the same sweet 1080p IPS screen and rich Bang & Olufsen speakers as the UX31A, and Nvidia's GeForce GT 620M GPU provides enough muscle to play some of the most demanding games (albeit at lower resolutions).

80% Asus Zenbook UX32A review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Asus UX32A offers a familiar line-up of features for a cheaper Ultrabook. There's nothing outstanding in terms of performance here but you do get a much more stylish and well-built laptop compared to some of the competition.

60% ASUS Zenbook UX32A-DB51 13.3-inch
Source: Comp Reviews English
The ASUS Zenbook UX32A-DB51 may be their latest revision of the 13-inch ultrabook that corrects a number of minor issues with their first model but ends up as a whole being not much of an upgrade. The main reason is that its $999 price tag results in it actually being priced the same as the older Zenbook UX31 but with less performance from its hybrid hard drive solution and a lower resolution display.

Zen Master. Upscale looks, slim build, and extremely powerful: until now, it was Apple's MacBook series which has managed best to combine these characteristics. With the UX51VZ (IPS display, quad-core CPU, SSD RAID, and a host of other high-end features), Asus sets out to dethrone the master.

The Zenbook VX51VZ-XB71 is a fairly large laptop. The Asus Zenbook VX51VZ-XB71 is a power user system with a higher than 1080p HD resolution display, but a lack of touch support and lackluster battery life means that this laptop is more of a semi-portable all-in-one desktop.

Essentially, the Zenbook VX51VZ-XB71 would have been a very good to excellent Windows 7 all-in-one desktop, but it leaves something to be desired as a Windows 8 laptop. Short battery life and a lack of a touch screen are major drawbacks to this power user system. If you need a higher than 1080p resolution portable PC, then systems like the Toshiba KiraBook and Editors' Choice Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Retina Display) are better choices, since both have comparable performance, plus hours more battery life.

You've got to hand it to ASUS. Its Zenbook UX51Vz delivers both beauty and power, and the addition of a high-resolution display really makes photos and games pop. However, the $2,699 price tag is fairly steep, and Windows 8 is simply not yet optimized to take advantage of Retina-like displays. We also wish this Zenbook ran a bit cooler.

The ASUS Zenbook UX301 is certainly a stylish Ultrabook that packs some very good performance. So what’s the only downside? Its price – sitting in at a cool AED 6,499. For an Ultrabook it’s certainly one that’s going to set you back a few, even though it’s capable of delivering some great performance.

The 13.3-inch stunner is slim and the topped with a Gorilla Glass 3 lid that gives it a distinct finish along with reassuring toughness. And that's high praise even before even opening this powerful laptop up. Lift the lid and the Asus logo glows up on the rear. Very cool indeed. But the big reveal is its screen, all 2560 x 1440 pixels of it - it's incredibly high resolution and looks amazing.

The Asus Zenbook UX302 is a solid addition to the Zenbook range that makes several predictable moves. We could see the updating of screen tech, the move to Haswell chips and the adopting of several recognisable Asus visual traits a mile off. We’re not too fussed about the flashy glass top, but it was one way to ensure it didn’t look exactly like last year’s models.

Asus Zenbook UX32LN-R4029H

If low graphic ultrabooks have been reason why you don't have an ultrabook, fret no more. The Asus Zenbook UX32LN offers the same mobility as other ultrabooks without compromising on the graphics quality. The Asus Zenbook UX32LN is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor with integrated Intel HD 4400 graphics card. Aside from that, the Asus Zenbook UX32LN also houses an Nvidia GT 840M graphic card for even better visual rendering.

The unit itself is only 18 mm thick and weighs only 3.2 pounds (1.45 kg), making it very mobile and light despite housing those specifications. The 13.3 incher provides a wide enough screen and offers a pixel resolution of 1920 by 1080. With all of these combined, the Asus Zenbook UX32LN is without question the best graphical 13 inch ultrabook out there.

Besides its graphical prowess, the Asus Zenbook UX32LN has all the basic connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Ethernet port and sufficient USB ports. However, the downside of this laptop is that the battery life is rather average. It is only able to last 7 hours with normal usage, at most.

All in all, the Asus Zenbook UX32LN is a great choice for gamers who want to use an ultrabook for gaming.

Asus reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce G 105M: Higher clocked 9300M GS and therefore a bit faster. Still manufactured in 65nm. Supports Hybrid-SLI with HybridPower and GeForceBoost (in conjunction with the right Nvidia chipset).

Intel HD Graphics (Sandy Bridge): Processor graphics card which is integrated in the Sandy Bridge Pentium and Celeron processors. Similar to the desktop HD Graphics 2000 and not related to the old Arrandale processor graphics with the same name.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M:

Based on either the older 40nm GF108 chip or the newer 28nm GF117 Fermi die shrink. In either case, the 620M is most similar to a GT 525M and comes without dedicated display ports. Consequently, the GPU can only be used in conjunction with Optimus. 

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel Iris Graphics 5100:

Integrated GPU (GT3) with 40 EUs (sans eDRAM) as found on certain ULV Haswell CPUs. Second fastest GPU in its family.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M: A mid-range GPU and the fastest GeForce GT as part of the 600M series

NVIDIA GeForce GT 645M: Higher clocked GeForce GT 640M.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M:

Rebranded GeForce GT 645M/640M with minimal improvements to power consumption. Can also be based on the slower GK208 chip (only 64 bit memory interface).

NVIDIA GeForce 840M:

Mid-range graphics card from the GeForce 800M series based on the Maxwell architecture.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Solo:

SU3500: Power efficient single core processor for small subnotebooks that is based on the Penryn core and includes all features (like Virtualization, C6 state, ...). The performance should be comparable with a 1.7 GHz Athlon II Neo K125.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2677M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.8-2.9 GHz due to Turbo Boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1200 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

3517U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.9 - 3.0 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1150 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

3612QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3612QM is the low TDP of 35 Watt compared to 45 Watt of the other Ivy Bridge quad core CPUs (e.g. 3610QM).

3632QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3632QM is the low TDP of 35 Watt compared to 45 Watt of the other Ivy Bridge quad core CPUs (e.g. 3610QM).

4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i5:

2557M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.7-2.7 GHz due to Turbo Boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1200 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

2467M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.6-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1150 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

2537M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.4-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 900 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i3:

2367M: Power efficient ULV processor clocked at 1.4 GHz without Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1000 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.


13.0: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays.
