Reviews for the Asus UX51VZ-CN036H

ASUS Zenbook UX51VZ
Source: AnandTech English
I really like the UX51VZ, but there have been a few flies in the ointment. One is that WiFi connectivity is intermittent—there’s a workaround that involves disabling Bluetooth support, but while I can live with that it’s not ideal for many people. Pricing is a second concern, and even at the now-reduced pricing I still feel the UX51VZ is priced a couple hundred dollars too high for most.

Asus Zenbook UX51Z will boot from cold to Desktop in less than 30 seconds. Asus have provided a measly 12-month guarantee free of charge; a warranty upgrade is recommended on a near-$2000 notebook – you should be able to get one at the store. Otherwise the Zenbook UX51VZ is an eminently capable machine.

ASUS Zenbook Prime review (UX51Vz): a blazing 15-inch Ultrabook with a lofty price
Source: Engadget English
Is the UX51Vz a worthwhile purchase? Could be: it packs high-performing internals into a sleek package and offers a comfortable keyboard, to boot. But few though the cons may be, they could be reason enough to justify passing this system up. The machine verges on cost-prohibitive, especially considering the battery life isn't great and there's no touchscreen for interacting with Windows 8.

95% ASUS Zenbook UX51Vz Review
Source: Digital Trends English
There are few competitors that can match this laptop. Overall, it’s among the best laptops we’ve tested. Only the MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina might stand toe-to-toe. Noise is the only flaw worth mentioning. This laptop is louder than many mainstream laptops and the fan never shuts off entirely.

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.
