Asus Zenbook UX31A Review


We were first introduced to the Asus Zenbook UX31 back in late 2011 and last year, Asus introduced a new wave of Zenbooks, one of which was an improved version of the UX31, the Asus Zenbook UX31A, which is now […]

One of our few concerns with the Zenbook was its edges as when we were working with it, we felt the edges of the palm rests could be a tad smoother. Considering how fantastic of an ultrabook this is, this is a concern we can easily overlook when you...

Review Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A Touch Ultrabook


Ultra-Touchbook. Few laptops of 2012 impressed us as much as the premium Ultrabook from Asus. The model achieved a rare 90%. Everything was perfect - even the display maintained a high standard. Will the touch panel make this great model even better?

Brightness throttling while running on battery, Reduced contrast and brightness, No Displayport, No Gigabit LAN, Max. 4 GB of RAM, A docking interface on the bottom would not distort the look and would be useful to many business users. Without one, the...

Asus Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A-BHI5T


Remarkably thin and lightweight. Gorgeous 1080p touch display with IPS panel. Very good battery life

Limited storage space. Port selection is limited

With its brilliant, touch-enabled screen, incredibly thin design, great battery life, and $1,100 price tag, the Asus Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A-BHI5T is the ultrabook to beat.

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A Touch review: new touchscreen, same solid performance


While Windows 8 inspired plenty of crazy new form factors, it also gave laptop makers a good reason to circle back and tweak their tried-and-true

Bright, responsive touchscreen ; Good performance ; Light, attractive design

Unimpressive battery life ; Price TBA, likely high

We already liked the ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A, and the addition of a touchscreen only makes this high-end Ultrabook better. Still, it would benefit from longer battery life.

ASUS UX31A: Putting the Ultra in Ultrabooks


When Intel first came up with their Ultrabook initiative last year—and yes, it was basically just a rechristening of ultraportables with the thin factor of a MacBook Air—they also made some bold claims. One of the biggest was that they felt upwards of...

There are two primary viewpoints on the UX31A, and both are valid. On the one hand you’ll find people saying, “$1400 for that!? That’s way too expensive when I could buy a substantially faster system for less money!” This is more or less the refrain...

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A Ultrabook review: a high-res display, and a much-improved keyboard


More InfoASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A alights its Ivy Bridge at Amazon: $1,149 for Core i5 editionASUS bringing Zenbook Prime UX21A, UX31A, UX32A and

Great IPS display ; Sleek, lightweight design ; Decent battery life

Wonky touchpad ; Sub-par audio

ASUS' new UX31A improves upon its already-good Ultrabook with a higher-res IPS screen and Ivy Bridge power, but there's still room for improvement.

Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A Review: Ultralight, Pretty, and Capable


The new Asux Zenbook UX31A looks like the old UX31E, with a brushed, bronze-tinted, solid aluminum shell that looks slightly dangerous and angular. The weight remains the same, at 3 pounds and an ounce. But our test model arrived with a gorgeous, 1080p...

Superb IPS Full HD display ; Extremely thin and light given its performance

Only two USB ports, though they're 3.0 capable ; Keyboard is a bit slippery

The new Zenbook offers a superb IPS display and solid performance in an ultralight, slick package.

Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-R5102F


The Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-R5102F offers a good looking ultrabook, and ups the ante with a 1080p display and third-generation Intel processor.

Third-generation Intel Core i5-3317u processor. Speedy SSD storage. Stunning 1080p IPS display. Comfortable backlit keyboard. Sleek and sturdy design

Skimpy port selection. Small storage capacity. Mediocre battery life

Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A review


Eight months ago, Asus was one of the first to build a credible MacBook Air alternative with a similar look and feel. The 13-inch Asus Zenbook UX31 and 11-inch UX21 delivered extremely rigid all-metal frames, power-sipping Intel Sandy Bridge...

Solid aluminum build ; Fantastic (optional) 1080p IPS screen ; Included dongles and sleeve

Extremely annoying trackpad ; Weak hinge ; Sharp edges ; On the pricier side

Is a high-resolution display what the ultrabook needs?
