Review Asus UX32A-R3001V Ultrabook

 

Entry-level Zen. Asus has been one of the first out of the blocks when dipping their hands into the ultrabook market. Now, with the UX32A-R3001V, it wants to rock the low-priced competition offering the laptop at around 800 Euro (~$1050). Our test...

Elegant, rigid and yet slim aluminum casing ; Good backlit keyboard ; Accurate and large touchpad - smoothly implemented multi-touch gestures ; Great speakers ("Just where is all that sound coming from?") ; Portability is guaranteed (sufficient screen...

Weak, outdated Sandy Bridge Core i3 ; Consequently, a comparatively poor performance

All the premium features that Asus packs into the Zenbook UX32A. Moreover, it is hard to find such well-engineered, balanced ultrabook for around 800 Euro (~$1050)

Asus Zenbook UX32A DB31

 

The Asus Zenbook was one of the first entrants in the new ultrabook category when it launched in late 2011. We liked that original system, despite a few serious flaws, as the all-metal design marked it as a direct competitor to the MacBook Air .

The Asus Zenbook UX32A is much less expensive than previous Asus ultrabooks, but keeps the same sharp design.

Saddled with last-gen components, the UX32A missed out on CPU and GPU improvements from Intel.

Asus makes some of the most full-featured ultrabooks available, but this stripped-down Zenbook UX32A version is missing those extras and faces tough competition in its price range.

Asus Zenbook UX32A review – the most affordable Asus ultrabook

 

Today we're taking a detailed look at the Asus Zenbook UX32A. This is Asus's most affordable ultrabook available right now, starting at around $700, and wh

THE GOOD beautiful and fairly solid built; decent trackpad and keyboard; alright screen, but short of impressive; good speakers; 5+ hours of everyday battery life; affordable

THE BAD not as sturdy as the Zenbook Primes; the Core i3 config is quite slow; tons of bloatware preinstalled

Asus Zenbook UX32A review

 

Asus gives the Zenbook brand an Ivy Bridge makeover

Ivy Bridge power ; Great portable design ; Comfortable keyboard ; Excellent connectivity ; Good speakers

Mediocre battery life ; Screen limited to 720p ; Lack of RAM ; No scope for gaming ; Needless bloatware

The Zenbook UX32A is a solid Ultrabook – thanks to the remarkably attractive design and the addition of an Ivy Bridge chipset.

Asus Zenbook UX32A review

 

Asus has got it right with the trackpad which is large and responsive to the touch. The reason for its size is down to the integrated mouse buttons which, for once, work without sending the cursor flying round the screen when clicked.

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.

Asus UX32A review

 

Although the ZenBook UX32A follows the same design queues as Asus' previous Ultrabooks, such as the top-end Asus ZenBook Prime UX31A, a few concessions have been made to make this model cheaper. Primarily, the case is a little thicker to squeeze in the...

A well-built laptop, but the screen is a little disappointing

"Good computer, but wifi bugs and power cord issues"

 

Would be great computer, but the parts aren't worth the hassle. Sent back twice in 6 months to repair Wifi. Signal reception is still weak.

Light, fast, good start-up times.

WiFi is poor. Sent back twice for repair within first 6 months.

Consumer review by:

"Good price,oversensitive touchpad,CHARGER PORT failures"

 

This laptop has great specs for the price. It is fast, light, and thin. However, it has 4 significant flaws.

Fast processor for the price, sleek design, thin, light, good sound.

Touchpad is too sensitive. If your hands get anywhere near it, it will cause your mouse to jump around.
