Conclusion: There are few competitors that can match this laptop. Overall, it’s among the best laptops we’ve tested. Only the MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina might stand toe-to-toe. Noise is the only flaw worth mentioning. This laptop is louder than many mainstream laptops and the fan never shuts off entirely. We hope that ASUS will offer this laptop without discrete graphics (at a lower price) for those who don’t care about gaming performance.
Pros: Great build quality, Attractive, Excellent touchpad, Class-leading 1080p display, Superb audio quality, Above-average battery life, Solid performance in every benchmark
Cons: Fan is louder than average at load, Expensive
Summary: Zen Master. Upscale looks, slim build, and extremely powerful: until now, it was Apple's MacBook series which has managed best to combine these characteristics. With the UX51VZ (IPS display, quad-core CPU, SSD RAID, and a host of other high-end features), Asus sets out to dethrone the master.
Pros: premium aluminum chassis, non-glare IPS display, very high overall performance, good gaming performance, outstanding input devices, powerful 2.1 sound system, very good port selection, Even though it is as slim and light as a comparable Ultrabook, the Zenbook has the performance of a multimedia power house. The quality is also top notch - the well-executed aluminum chassis and the superb input devices justify the pretty substantial price.
Cons: high price, too noisy during idle, limited upgradabillity, no DisplayPort, We don't find a lot of things to complain about - except for maybe two points: the cooling system is just too noisy during idle. Asus should be able to improve fan noise since the temperatures don't climb much unless the system is under quite a bit of load. Very high resolution displays would also benefit from a DisplayPort. Even though the notebook is still subject to throttling under extreme ...
