Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A review
7 January 2014
Summary: Eight months ago, Asus was one of the first to build a credible MacBook Air alternative with a similar look and feel. The 13-inch Asus Zenbook UX31 and 11-inch UX21 delivered extremely rigid all-metal frames, power-sipping Intel Sandy Bridge processors, speedy solid state storage, and unfortunately, an incredibly frustrating trackpad .
Pros: Solid aluminum build, Fantastic (optional) 1080p IPS screen, Included dongles and sleeve
Cons: Extremely annoying trackpad, Weak hinge, Sharp edges, On the pricier side
Summary: Ultra-Touchbook. Few laptops of 2012 impressed us as much as the premium Ultrabook from Asus. The model achieved a rare 90%. Everything was perfect - even the display maintained a high standard. Will the touch panel make this great model even better?
Pros: High-quality and robust aluminium unibody, Comfortable keyboard with backlight, Good IPS display (viewing angles), High program performance thanks to the fast SSD, Very quiet during office use, Good sound, Nice battery life, The flawless workmanship of the full aluminum chassis is a stunner. This is the standard for sturdiness in a notebook.
Cons: Brightness throttling while running on battery, Reduced contrast and brightness, No Displayport, No Gigabit LAN, Max. 4 GB of RAM, A docking interface on the bottom would not distort the look and would be useful to many business users. Without one, the user has to carry dongles around or purchase a USB 3.0 dock. External displays are some times disadvantaged by USB.
Conclusion: The Asus Zenbook Prime was and is the definition of a high end Ultrabook. It's still the poster child for what Intel imagined when they coined the Ultrabook term: thin, light, extremely stylish and quick. Among Windows machines, it's still hard to beat it for seriously high end styling, fit and finish, features and value. Yes, $1,100 isn't cheap, but when compared to Samsung's top of the line Series 9 with a 1080p non-touch display, it's the more affordable choice.
Pros: As ever, a stunning design, elegant metal casing, full HD IPS touch screen, slim.
Cons: Fingerprint magnet, micro ports mean carrying dongle adapters.

Summary: Excellent overall performance and a stunning screen are just two important features that the ASUS Zenbook UX31A brings to the table. It's thin, light, has a backlit keyboard and its battery life is impressive. It still isn't perfect, and our primary gripe with this model is its touchpad, but it doesn't overshadow the strong Ivy Bridge-based configuration and the beautiful IPS-based screen.
Pros: Fast performance, Stunning Full HD, IPS screen, Respectable battery life, Strong build quality
Cons: Touchpad can be a nuisance, Ambient light sensor not great, Space bar squeaked on our model
Excerpt: The term Ultrabook has become so loose now that just about everything which isn’t made by Apple and is portable has the moniker slapped on it. The problem is that a lot of the kit released just doesn’t cut it, with most being far from ultra.
Pros: Great screen, top-notch build quality and design
Conclusion: Com sua tela brilhante e sensível ao toque, design incrivelmente fino, ótima durabilidade de bateria e custando US$1.100, o Asus Zenbook Prime TouchUX31A-BHI5T é o ultrabook a ser superado.
Pros: Extremamente leve e fino. Tela 1080p touch. Bateria com alta durabilidade.
Cons: Espaço de armazenamento limitado. Portas limitadas
