Asus Zenbook UX21E-DH52

PC Magazine
14 January 2012
  • Conclusion: A mix of ultrabook and ultraportable, the Asus Zenbook UX21E-DH52 is a formidable challenger to the 11-inch MacBook Air.
  • Pros: Marvelously thin and light. Bright screen. Nifty AC adapter. VGA and Ethernet dongles and case included.
  • Cons: Stiff, non-backlit keyboard. Reflective screen. No memory-card slot. Lethal power button position.

  • Conclusion: If it's time to trade in an old clunker, we're confident that you'll find the ZenBook UX21E a worthy replacement. It's fast, attractive, and light, and it has most of the latest and greatest technology in a laptop of its type. But then again, it might be worth waiting just a little longer to see what some of the other soon-to-be-released ultrabooks have to offer—especially if you're very discriminating about your laptop's screen and keyboard.
  • Pros: Highly portable, Strong and fast performance, Gorgeous polished-aluminum case, Superb audio system
  • Cons: No memory-card slots, Keyboard a little shallow, and lacks backlighting, Slightly less-than-vivid color reproduction

Review Asus Zenbook UX21E Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
3 November 2011
  • Summary: Perfection. The power version of the Zenbook, with a Core i7, is as handy as a netbook but faster than most multimedia machines. How is this possible with a build height of 17 millimeters? The lightning-fast ADATA SSD sets the standard higher than ever.
  • Pros: Low weight and slim case, Stiff & high quality aluminum case, Good input devices, Very good application performance, Extremely fast SSD, Very bright screen, Unequivocally solid aluminum body. We gladly accept the few grams more compared to the MacBook Air.
  • Cons: Few interfaces, Reflective screen, Poor colors, viewing angles, RAM & battery built-in permanently, Short battery life of less than four hours, Very loud during load, A battery life of at least five hours and wide viewing angles.

ASUS Zenbook (UX21) Review

AnandTech
22 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Given the lack of any Intel-specific Ultrabook software I'm hesitant to even call this thing an Ultrabook. There's also the fact that, at least in the case of Intel Rapid Start Technology, being more of an Ultrabook in that sense would've been a step back in performance. In fact, I see no real reason to use that brand at all—which is likely why ASUS ended up calling it a Zenbook to begin with. So how well did ASUS do with its first Ultrabook...er Zenbook?

Asus ZenBook UX21 review

expertreviews.co.uk
18 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Ultrabooks are the Windows alternative to a MacBook Air, but until now we’ve only seen examples with 13in screens, leaving the 11in Air unchallenged. Fortunately Asus breaks this trend with its UX21; an 11in version of the Asus ZenBook UX31 . The UX21 looks almost identical to its bigger brother, with the same brushed metal finish but with impossibly small dimensions.
