Asus UX31 Zenbook: MacBook Air finally has a worthy opponent?
11 March 2011
Conclusion: Overall we were very impressed with the Asus Zenbook. Neither power nor portability has been sacrificed and features that traditionally suffer, such as audio quality and battery life, have not been neglected.
Pros: Slim, stylish design, Super fast (2nd Gen. Sandybridge CPU, SSD drive)
Cons: No dedicated graphics, Limited storage, No backlit keyboard
Summary: • ASUS Zenbook UX31 Features • 13.3- inches screen, with 1600 x 900 resolution • Intel Core i5- 2557M dual core processor • 4 GB Base RAM Capacity • 1333 MHz RAM • 128 GB solid state disk (SSD) • Intel HD 3000 graphics • Over 5 hours battery life • Mini HDMI & Mini VGA sockets • USB 2.0 and USB 3.0...
Excerpt: The ultra-portable laptop market has been all but dominated by the Apple MacBook Air for the past few years, but Intel’s Ultrabook specification looks set to turn things around for Windows-based machines. If this Asus ZenBook UX31 is any indication, Apple now has some serious competition.
Summary: The Zenbook UX31 is priced at Rs. 89,999 (MRP). For those on-the-go; a powerful battery coupled with portability is always a brilliant feature to have in your laptop and the Zenbook does exactly that. However, the biggest drawback the UX31 has is the glitchy keyboard and trackpad.

Conclusion: With so much going for it as far as size, build and looks are concerned, it's a shame that the Zenbook UX31 offers a below average user experience. Its input peripherals aren't great, it feels uncomfortable to use and we had to install drivers to get things working properly.
Pros: Thin design, 1600x900 resolution, 256GB SSD and Core i7 CPU
Cons: Input devices not great, User friendliness not great, Keyboard not backlit
