A tad short of enlightenment Ultrabooks. A fancy name for thin but powerful laptops that took their cue from the MacBook Air. Not everyone could have one though as the prices would make most jaws drop.While still not cheap, devices of this price range now make owning an ultrabook more achievable; but to be honest it’s perhaps best if such devices are left as millionaire’s playthings so as to keep the quality. Though manufacturers obviously want to get the masses to part cash.Though I’m impressed with this Zenbook (a less spec’d version of its original sibling), it’s clear that you’re not getting a steal. The first issue is that you can slightly but definitely see the individual pixel grids of the screen, which you notice in a much worse case on very cheap Android tablets. It is tolerable, but to get that thinness for this price you have to accept losing some clarity; you’re not going to get a Retina Air for under a grand. If I saw this in a shop I perhaps mightn’t buy it, though I have got…

Liked it a lot but had to return it due to a batch defect I was very happy with my purchase, unfortunately had to return my new laptop due to a couple of manufacturer defects (one of the USB ports and the bluetooth were not working). I was offered a full refund by Amazon as they weren’t sure if all of the laptops from the batch were defective and couldn’t offer an exchange. If it was possible I would have exchanged it for exactly the same laptop but I ended up getting an Acer S5 instead (couldn’t find another UX32A with a good price).The only thing that I really didn’t like about the Asus UX32A was the screen. My old Toshiba has a better quality of image than the Asus UX32A but I think it’s due to the fact that ultrabooks use an integrated graphic card, so it’s either size or the quality, and in my case the mobility of the laptop was deciding factor.Before I returned my Asus I used it for about 3 days and here are the differences and similarities I noticed between Asus UX32A and Acer S5:*The sound of the Asus is…

Asus Zenbook This is an excellent product that oozes quality from opening the packaging materials. The manufacturers box is extremely stylish and very well presented and is sealed with security seals. Opening the box does not disappoint.The Zenbook is a reallly stylish and good performing laptop.My only disappointment is that due to its compact size it does not have an RJ45 port for wired network access but it does have wireless networking and although this is good, it does limit download speeds dependent on the speed of the individuals wireless connection.The manufacturers instructions explain that wired internet access can be achieved using the “bundled USB to RJ45 adaptor”. My Zenbook came without this and despite numerous attempts to contact Asus to get them to send me one, they insist that by “bundled” it is the responsibility of Amazon to either send me the missing item or to supply me a replacment unit.I have exchanged a number of emails with…
