ASUS Zenbook UX31E

Channel5
2 April 2012
  • Summary: Minor complaints aside don’t detract from what is a powerful laptop with a great screen, sexy design and quick performance in whatever it does. At around £1,000 it’s a little on the pricey side, but as alternatives to Apple’s MacBook Air go, the ASUS UX31E is worth considering.

ASUS Zenbook UX31E

MobileTechReview.com
12 March 2012
  • Conclusion: We like the Asus Zenbook UX31 quite a bit. It's exquisitely thin, superbly light at 2.86 pounds, and it's gorgeous. The build quality is top notch--in fact it's one of the best made notebooks we've seen outside of Apple's store.
  • Pros: Very fast, super-thin and light, all metal design, high res display.
  • Cons: Keyboard requires a firm touch and has low travel: not our choice for writers.

Digitaltrends
24 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The UX31 is more than just a flagship in Asus’ notebook lineup; it’s a flagship among Ultrabooks in general. It was one of the first products to hit the market, and also one of the most expensive.

ASUS Zenbook UX31 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
23 January 2012
  • Summary: The ASUS Zenbook UX31 takes a lot of what we loved about the 13-inch MacBook Air--a wafer-thin aluminum chassis, fast performance, instant resume, and good battery life--and adds even better audio and a higher-resolution display. Even better, the UX31 costs $200 less than the Air.

Asus Zenbook UX31E review – this could be the best ultrabook, but…

UltrabookReview
15 December 2011
  • Summary: With a stylish and solid built body, the Zenbook is on of the best looking ultrabooks on the market. It's also very fast, however the screen and the keyboard did not live to our expectations, but overall the Asus UX31 is one of the best 13.3 inch ultrabooks out there right now.
  • Pros: good looking and solid built, good HD display, excellent speakers, solid performances, proper price tag
  • Cons: shallow and imprecise keyboard, jumpy trackpad (partially fixed on the newer models), a bit too ostentatious for my taste

ASUS Zenbook UX31

  • Conclusion: As a rule of thumb, a manufacturer's first attempt at a new product is usually its worst, and in knowing that we've been left pleasantly surprised by the Zenbook UX31. The Ultrabook should still be rough around the edges, but ASUS has developed a machine that's gorgeously designed, well-put together...

Asus Zenbook UX31E review

wired.co.uk
2 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The Asus Zenbook looks and feels great, and it's a pleasure to use. But it's not the fastest ultrabook you'll come across though, so if performance is crucial, you'd be best to look elsewhere. Likewise, if you need a wired Ethernet connection, this isn't the ultrabook for you.

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The Asus Zenbook is like Angelina Jolie. It's hot to look at, but you know full well that a long-term relationship is going to be painful and difficult. Well, we know that, because we've tested the Zenbook and have heard lots about Angelina Jolie having her partner's blood in a container around her...

  • Cons: Expensive, horrible ergonomics, terrible trackpad
