88% Asus Zenbook UX32LN-R4029H Ultrabook Review Update | Notebookcheck
Gaming-to-go - Part Two. Lots of power packed into an attractive case - that is one way to describe this Zenbook. An IPS panel and SSD complete the package. Even with its high-performance components, its battery life is good as well. Does the Zenbook have weaknesses too? Keep reading to find out.

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.


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.

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.  


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.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
