Asus Zenbook U500 review / Asus UX51VZ – top notch 15 inch ultraportable

 

Not even 12 months have passed since the first ultrabooks hit the stores. And while those early models had their issues, they cleared the way for the thing

THE GOOD sleek looks and sturdy build quality; thin and light for a 15 incher; excellent display, audio system and performances; good keyboard; plenty of ports; includes external optical unit

THE BAD gets hot; trackpad is sometimes jumpy (also noticed on this sample: potential throttling problems)

Amazingly powerful, but that performance comes at a price

Good power on offer ; Exquisite aluminium finish ; Good keyboard ; Decent battery life ; IPS screen and B and O audio

Premium price tag ; Pre-installed bloatware ; Fans can be noisy ; Screen auto-brightness can be iffy

Hands-on: A 15.6in Zenbook with Ultrabook style, plus performance.

Next to some of Asus's most recent reveals, the Zenbook U500 may seen like a bit of a stick-in-the-mud. It has just the one screen, its keyboard doesn't detach and it's not as light as a feather. However, it does solve just about every issue we had...
