ASUS Zenbook (UX21) Review

AnandTech
7 May 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
