Asus gives the Zenbook UX301 a higher-res touch screen

CNET
27 March 2014
  • Summary: Asus was one of the first PC makers to go ultra-thin with its Zenbook line. That latest UX301 version packs in nearly every high-end spec you'd want, but it's priced out of reach for most, and lacks an all-day battery.
  • Pros: The Asus Zenbook UX301 packs in a lot, including a better-than-HD touch screen, big 256GB SSD, and Core i7 processor, in a slim, smart design.
  • Cons: It costs more than most comparable better-then-HD laptops, including the Retina MacBook Pro. The Zenbook doesn't feel as rugged as its price warrants, and its battery life is unimpressive.

  • Conclusion: Nevertheless, if you're willing to pay a premium price, the Zenbook UX301LA won't leave you wanting. With its topnotch keyboard and touch pad, long battery life, solid performance, and luxurious design, the UX301LA is an ultrabook you'll be proud to use in a coffee shop full of MacBooks.
  • Pros: Elegant aluminum design with Gorilla Glass lid, Excellent keyboard and touch pad, Crisp and vivid touch screen, Long battery life
  • Cons: Core i5 power at Core i7 price, Narrow viewing angles, Windows apps not optimized for 2,560x1,440 display

Review Asus Zenbook Infinity UX301LA Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Dark beauty. It's small. It's a premium product. And it's fast. We almost don't dare to call the new Zenbook UX301 an "ultrabook", as it attempts to be much more than that: the perfect mobile companion. With the top-notch materials, great build quality and high-end innards of its newest flagship; Asus wants to dethrone its fiercest competitor, Apple. The price point? That topic almost becomes a minor matter.
  • Pros: Slim case, premium materials, Superb input devices, High CPU performance, Extremely fast SSD RAID system, Bright, high-resolution display, Great connectivity options, Decent battery life, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Great-looking, fast and highly mobile - the newest Zenbook packs more punch than some full-sized desktop replacement systems, and it does so within a tiny package. Its build quality is absolutely top-notch.
  • Cons: Reflective display surface, Mediocre webcam, Limited expandability, Expensive, Not that much, actually - except for a lower price point. 1800 Euros is almost on par with a similarly-speced MacBook Pro 13 with Retina display.
