Review Asus Zenbook Infinity UX301LA Ultrabook

 

Dark beauty. It's small. It's a premium product. And it's fast. We almost don't dare to call the new Zenbook UX301 an "ultrabook", as it attempts to be much more than that: the perfect mobile companion. With the top-notch materials, great build quality...

Slim case, premium materials; Superb input devices; High CPU performance; Extremely fast SSD RAID system; Bright, high-resolution display; Great connectivity options; Decent battery life; 802.11ac Wi-Fi

Reflective display surface; Mediocre webcam; Limited expandability; Expensive

Most comparable devices come from Apple, ranging from the more mobile MacBook Air 13 to the more powerful MacBook Pro 13 Retina. Other alternatives might be the Samsung 740U3E, the Sony Vaio Pro 13, the Acer Aspire S7 or the Dell XPS 12.

Asus Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T

 

A few years ago, nearly every PC maker had its own version of the idea ultrabook (some would call them MacBook Air clones), with a slim body, low-voltage CPU, 13-inch screen, and a premium price. In 2014, the nearly identical laptop everyone needs to...

The Asus Zenbook UX301 packs in a lot, including a better-than-HD touch screen, big 256GB SSD, and Core i7 processor, in a slim, smart design.

It costs more than most comparable better-then-HD laptops, including the Retina MacBook Pro. The Zenbook doesn't feel as rugged as its price warrants, and its battery life is unimpressive.

Asus was one of the first PC makers to go ultra-thin with its Zenbook line. That latest UX301 version packs in nearly every high-end spec you'd want, but it's priced out of reach for most, and lacks an all-day battery.

ASUS Zenbook UX301

 

The ASUS Zenbook UX301 offers a beautiful Gorilla Glass lid, a QHD display, solid battery life and swift Haswell performance for a premium price.

Beautiful scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass lid; Comfortable keyboard; Very fast overall performance; Above-average battery life; Fast boot and transfer times

Narrower viewing angles than competition; Pricey

Va-va-voom! ASUS is turning heads with the Zenbook UX301 for all the right reasons. We love the new blue Gorilla Glass lid (even if you need a polish rag at all times). The Intel Core i7 processor Iris Graphics and dual SSDs make this Ultrabook one of...

Elegant design, Thin and light, Bright 2560x1440 display, Strong performance

Lackluster connectivity, Build quality doesn’t match the price, So-so keyboard and touchpad, Overpriced

The UX301LA is, in many ways, a worthy step forward for the company’s already excellent Zenbook line. Besides its elegant, eye-catching design, the system shaves off weight and improves display resolution while still providing decent battery life,...

ASUS Zenbook UX301LA: A Nice Intel Ultrabook For Linux Users

 

As I wrote about at the beginning of March, I bought the ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T Haswell-based ultrabook to replace an Apple Retina MacBook Pro as my main system. I've been using this latest Zenbook with Intel Iris Graphics and dual SSDs for several...

Elegant aluminum design with Gorilla Glass lid, Excellent keyboard and touch pad, Crisp and vivid touch screen, Long battery life

Core i5 power at Core i7 price, Narrow viewing angles, Windows apps not optimized for 2,560x1,440 display

Nevertheless, if you're willing to pay a premium price, the Zenbook UX301LA won't leave you wanting. With its topnotch keyboard and touch pad, long battery life, solid performance, and luxurious design, the UX301LA is an ultrabook you'll be proud to...

Asus Zenbook UX301LA / UX301 review – not just a regular Haswell ultrabook

 

A sleek body covered in glass and metal, an awesome screen and a fast hardware platform. All these put together make the Asus Zenbook UX301, one of the most interesting premium ultrabooks of the moment.

solid and nice looking body, decent keyboard and trackpad, awesome screen, great performances, good battery life, punchy speakers

Asus Zenbook UX301LA review

 

Is this Asus Zenbook more than just another laptop?

Good overall performance ; Good-quality sound ; Excellent trackpad and gesture software

Comparatively expensive ; SSDs are slow ; Screen resolution produces tiny text

I'm slightly underwhelmed by the blandness of the Asus Zenbook UX301LA. There's nothing to really hate about it, but nothing to truly love either. Anyone who buys one wont find any real faults with it, but is unlikely to relish the opportunity to open...
