Asus Zenbook UX32Vd Review

 

Sexy Zenbook looks; lovely screen; lots of amenities at a competitive price

Wimpy GPU; despite Optimus, battery life isn’t exceptional; HDD rather than SSD

When Asus’s Zenbook UX31E debuted last year, it seemed to almost single-handedly put Ultrabooks on the map. Its intriguing mix of good looks, performance, and price convinced many a skeptic, us included, that PCs could compete with the likes of Apple’s...

Review Asus Zenbook UX32VD Ultrabook

 

Miracles happen. The first rumors about Asus' new, revised Zenboo

Attractive Design; Full-Size HDMI, VGA and LAN by Adapter; Service friendly thanks to large bottom plate; Backlit keyboard; Bright display with strong 1000:1 contrast; Outdoor capable thanks to bright, non-reflective display; Very stable viewing angles...

No Unibody; Spongy keyboard mounting; some software applications fail at supporting Windows' display scaling.; No SSD, just a conventional HDD with SSD cache; High case temperatures during full load; suboptimally positioned speakers

The Asus UX32VD competes with a number of Ultrabooks from other manufacturers. A representative list would be for example the Dell XPS 13, Sony's SVT13, Samsung's 530U, HP Folio 13 and many more. If a high quality display is a priority, the only...

Asus Zenbook VX51VZ-XB71

 

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.

Quad-core i7 processor. 512GB SSD. Discrete graphics. Higher than 1080p 2,880-by-1,620 resolution display

No touch screen. CPU and GPU aren't latest generation. Pricey. VGA requires adapter. Narrow number keys on keypad. Middling battery life

The Asus Zenbook VX51VZ-XB71 is a power user system with a screen resolution rivaling the Retina Displays. Its higher than 1080p HD resolution means you'll be able to show a lot more of your work on screen simultaneously, and the fourth-generation...

ASUS ZenBook UX51V Review

 

The ASUS UX51VZ is a well-rounded 15.6-inch notebook with excellent multimedia features ... but it is ultimately a bit too expensive.

Solid design ; Excellent performance ; Good keyboard ; Good speakers ; Good battery life

Expensive ; Not-quiet cooling fans ; No touch screen

The ASUS UX51VZ is a well-rounded 15.6-inch notebook that’s ultimately a bit too expensive. There’s little to actually complain about; at the top of the list is the lack of a touch-enabled display and always-audible cooling fans; it also gets a bit...

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX32VD

 

Asus has long pursued the premium PC market. The company lacks the marketing know-how and grunt of HP or Dell, but it has arguably done a better job putting out legitimately great products. The company's history is dotted with unique laptops such as...

Three USB 3.0 ports ; Enjoyable keyboard and large touchpad ; High-contrast IPS display ; Good processor and 3D performance

Display has severe uniformity issues ; Hard drive is mechanical ; Battery life is so-so

We respect the Zenbook Prime UX32 for what it tries to accomplish, but we have mixed feelings about it as a product.

ASUS ZenBook UX32VD Review

 

The ZENBOOK UX32 offers great looks and great performance that only suffer from a few issues.

Beautiful 1080p screen ; Nice keyboard ; Solid thin-and-light design ; Best-in-class gaming performance

Slow HDD + SSD cache ; Average battery life ; Adapter "dongles" are easy to lose

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...

Asus Zenbook UX32VD

 

Laptop shopping is always about making compromises, trading computing power for battery life or reducing size and weight at the cost of extra features. For ultrabooks or other ultrathin laptops, this is especially true, and nearly every slim 13-inch...

The Asus Zenbook UX32VD has features usually missing from ultrabooks, including a 1080p display and Nvidia GPU.

The UX32VD is expensive, it's thicker and heavier than most ultrabooks, and it has a less-than-stellar touch pad.

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.

Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71

 

The Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71 adds a speedy 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce graphics to the ultrabook formula. What Asus has wrought is the thinnest and lightest 1080p HD power system on the market. It's the ultrabook to...

Brilliant 1080p screen in a 13.3 inch ultrabook. Discrete 3D graphics. Strong multimedia performance. Full sized HDMI port. Three USB 3.0 ports in an ultrabook. Dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi

Text can be tiny unless scaled up. Middling battery life. Only 30-day trial to McAfee Internet Security

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX32VD

 

The ASUS Zenbook Prime UX32VD combines the best Ultrabook display with Nvidia graphics for extra gaming muscle.

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...

Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD Ultrabook Review

 

super-slim ultrabooks, gaming and multimedia are often the weakest links. Most ultrabooks have Intel integrated graphics that aren't designed to take on graphics-intensive games. Storage space, graphics processing, and display quality can be key areas...

Performance Summary: The Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD is, as ultrabooks go, a strong multimedia system. Thanks to the discrete Nvidia graphics with Optimus, the UX32VD puts standard ultrabooks and their integrated graphics to shame the moment you fire up...
