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. If you’re paying big bucks for a notebook, you’d pretty much get at least a decent keyboard. In comparison to the Lenovo U300s, this one definitely has better looks and performance.
Summary: When Intel unveiled its notion of the ultrabook in June , Asus could hardly contain its excitement. Just moments after Intel’s Sean Maloney announced the newly-named laptop category, which promised fast boot times and great battery life, Asus’ Chairman Jonney Shih took the stage in his always-entertaining, yet transcendent style to show off his company’s future UX ultrabooks.
Pros: Very sturdy aluminum build, Fast resume and boot times, About six hours of battery life, Sleek power brick, included dongles
Cons: Touchpad is extremely flaky, jumpy, and frustrating, No backlit keyboard
Summary: The Asus Zenbook UX31 is incredibly slim, light and great to look at. With an Intel Core i7 processor at its heart, it packs a powerful punch and still manages to undercut Apple's MacBook Air.
Cons: No different configuration options available; Screen appears slightly washed out at max brightness; Keyboard can be awkward for fast touch-typing.
ASUS Zenbook UX31 review: This Ultrabook has the looks and specs, but it's not big on user comfort
Good Gear Guide.au
13 January 2012
Summary: 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. technically, it's a good laptop, but it could have been so much better when it comes to user friendliness. We'd probably sit this one out and wait to see what the next models offer.
Pros: Thin design, 1600x900 resolution, 256GB SSD and Core i7 CPU
Cons: Input devices not great, User friendliness not great, Keyboard not backlit
Excerpt: There's more to life than good looks. And while looking good will get you so far, if you can't do anything useful, then there's no chance you'll ever be a success. Are we talking about Laptops or people here? Well, both, frankly.
Pros: Stylish, generous memory, fast boot times, excellent battery life

Summary: Ein Notebook, das klein, flach, wertig, schnell und stabil sein soll? Das kann ja wohl nur das MacBook Air sein. Falsch: Konnte.

Wir haben getestet, ob das funktioniert – oder ob der Hersteller dann doch an versteckter Stelle gespart hat.
