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 UX301 review:

 

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 UX301LA review

 

Though fast, and in possession of a beautiful 1440p display, this Zenbook stumbles under the burden of its outrageous price.

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 / 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

some design quirks, expensive

OK, so wrapping up this review, there are for sure many things you will like about this ultrabook, like the sleek body, the awesome screen, the good keyboard and trackpad. However, you do get most of these, slightly better or worse, on other good...

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...
