Review Asus Zenbook UX51VZ (U500VZ) Notebook

 

Zen Master. Upscale looks, slim build, and extremely powerful: un

premium aluminum chassis; non-glare IPS display; very high overall performance; good gaming performance; outstanding input devices; powerful 2.1 sound system; very good port selection

high price; too noisy during idle; limited upgradabillity; no DisplayPort

The main competitor is without a question the even higher-quality (if by a slim margin), but much more expensive Apple MacBook Pro 15 Retina. Depending on the usage scenario, other notebooks might also be candidates: the Dell XPS 15, Sony Vaio...

ASUS Zenbook UX51Vz (2013) Review

 

The ASUS Zenbook UX51Vz offers a high-resolution display and strong performance in a thin design, but it doesn't come cheap.

Crisp and colorful Retina-like display; Blazing fast SSDs; Strong performance and graphics; Comfortable typing experience

Windows 8 not optimized for high-res screens; Below-average battery life; Expensive; Runs hot

The ASUS Zenbook UX51Vz offers a high-resolution display and strong performance in a thin design, but it doesn't come cheap.

ASUS Zenbook UX51VZ: Great Laptop, High Price

 

I have quite a few laptops that have been languishing in a non-fully-reviewed state for a while. The New Year has been a bit crazy, and in the midst of trying to update the benchmark suite and some other items, the time for a full review is long since...

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....

Asus Zenbook Prime UX51Vz-DH71

 

It seems like there just aren't a lot of options when it comes to premium larger-screen Windows 8 laptops. And those that we do see, like the Acer Aspire S7 and HP Spectre TouchSmart XT , typically don't have discrete graphics.

Cased in aluminum, the Asus Zenbook UX51Vz-DH71 is an impressive-looking laptop with an excellent 15-inch screen, a strong combo of components, and prime performance.

A premium price to match its high-end design and components; no touch screen to take full advantage of the Windows 8 interface.

The Asus Zenbook UX51Vz-DH71 is a nice fit for anyone looking for premium looks and performance in a Windows 8 laptop who is willing to pay for it.

Asus ZenBook UX51Vz-DH71

 

The Asus ZenBook UX51Vz-DH71 ($1,869.99 list) is a high-end ultraportable for power users like multimedia mavens and part-time gamers. Its speedy SSD RAID array, 1080p screen, Core i7 processor, beefy discrete graphics and other performance-oriented...

1080p IPS screen. Quad-core i7 processor. Nvidia GT 650M graphics. Twin SSDs in a RAID array. Subwoofer. Good sound for a laptop. Additional damage and screen warranty protections

Mini-VGA, not Mini-DisplayPort. No touch screen. Middling battery life

The Asus ZenBook UX51Vz-DH71 is a power users' ultraportable, with a quad-core CPU and high-end 3D graphics. Middling battery life and "only" a 1080p screen keep if from earning our top honors.

ASUS Zenbook Prime review (UX51Vz): a blazing 15-inch Ultrabook with a lofty price

 

Windows 8 has ushered in an era of category-defying devices, with hybrid machines that bend, flip around, lie flat and otherwise contort flooding the

1080p IPS display offers good viewing angles ; Sleek design, comfortable keyboard ; Excellent performance

Underwhelming battery life ; Expensive

The Zenbook Prime UX51Vz is easily the most powerful Ultrabook available, but underwhelming battery life -- and a sky-high price tag -- temper our enthusiasm somewhat.

The ASUS Zenbook line has become an ambassador for Windows laptops. The brilliant displays, slim design, and excellent performance of each model have made them a top choice for buyers interested in a premium Windows machine. That's not to say there...
