Great MBA alternativePosted .
I'd just like to mention that there is another five star review for this device by "anonymous and I too am in much consensus on what they had to say about their review for this product; I will also use a similar outline for my review of the Zenbook. I'm writing this review to offset the negative reviews because I feel it deserves much better of a rating than what has been portrayed so far. Also, this is my second system, my first was defective and I don't even know how it could have passed quality control, the seal on the side of the screen was partially stuck under the screen causing it to bulge out, the speakers had a screeching sound depending on the vibration/frequency that would cause the sound and for some reason it would continually drop my wifi connection. I would have possibly rated this computer four stars because of that, but you must also understand that ASUS as of now has the highest track-record for reliability and I also understand that sometimes you can end up with a lemon as with any company; this is not a common issue that I've had with ASUS in the past and I feel it was a fluke. I just wanted the reader of this review to be aware of this experience and so that I can be as accurate as possible with my personal impression of the product. Also, I have tried the Toshiba z830 ultrabook of which I had originally replaced my macbook air. Its a great system for the price, but after prolonged use, I decided to pay the extra $250 in price difference for the build quality of the ASUS Zenbook and its trackpad. Trackpad: The track-pad from factory is nearly useless and unmanageable. However there is an update to this that is HUGELY significant to the proper functioning of the device. After the driver update, this is nearly one of the best multi-touch track-pad that I've used on a windows laptop. Asus or Best Buy should really have this fixed before even selling the product as some people are not fully computer literate with the ability or understanding get this machine fully functional. I understand the logistical complications, but there should be some sort of consensus to getting the product to optimal condition before selling it prematurely. However I also understand that the holiday season is here and ASUS is very excited to get there product to the shelves ahead of their competition. Also, the track-pad hardware is very nice, it is glass and is just as high of quality as a mac track-pad. Just like MAC, the track-pad is nearly a duplicate as with the rest of this machine with an Asus spin on their design. It has two-finger right-click, screen lock for dragging and dropping, and the ability to scroll through windows and clear the screen all without the need depress the trackpad. Learning these gestures are familiar if you have used a MAC product before, if not, you can go into settings under mouse. I do feel that this is another short-cumming of this device, there should have been a quick overview of gestures in print format or digital on the desktop with the purchase of this system. Keyboard: The keys on this keyboard are not mushy and are a tad on the stiff side. If you are a confident typist that does not just wave your fingers and stumble across the keys, you should be fine with the keyboard. That's the best way I can describe the keyboard. I think you should definitely try using a demo/floor-model at Best Buy before deciding to purchasing the device to see if you can type comfortably on it. There is nothing with the keyboard, its just the way it was build and I became more comfortable with it after using it for a few minutes. Screen: is a pleasure to work on and to watch videos. There are a couple things worth mentioning though. The color black is more of a grey (large images, not text while typing); all the other colors though are very accurately portrayed after I ran a screen calibration utility. The other thing worth mentioning though is that the screen angle is not nearly as much as what you would find on a macbook air, but it does well none the less. Leaning off to an angle while working on the system is not really enough to affect what you can see. One of my pet-peeves about screens is there brightness level; anything under 350nits is unacceptable. The screen on this machine is more than bright enough and will scorch your retinas just like the Samsung Series 9 screen at maximum setting. Seriously, you can nearly light up an entire room with this screen turned up. The resolution, its higher than the macbook air, need I say more? You are getting a high-quality screen with your purchase. Appearance, form factor, Convenience: The machine is beautiful. It is of mac-like quality and I am satisfied with the purchase. The main differences are: the interior is all silver trim, the top cover is a different shade of silver with swirl marking enveloping the ASUS trademark, the edges are more square vs round on the MBA and the bottom panel has vents along the bottom which assists in the longevity to keeping the hardware running cool and efficient. Overall this machine feels very sturdy and I have not fear of placing a book on the top cover or placing it in a backpack with other objects. There is very limited wobble to the screen when it is opened and the hinge feels sturdy/solid when opening and closing the device. Ports: the system comes with the ethernet and VGA dongles as an added bonus. These ports are non-proprietary and there are aftermarket parts if you should need to replace these connectors; this was a huge factor in my decision to purchasing this ultrabook. The two connectors are micro HDMI and micro VGA of which are commonly found on data-phone now.USB 3.0 is a huge and practical plus too. My only gripe is that I'd prefer a larger and sturdier build for the power-plug connector although I don't thing wear should be a problem. Performance: This system is quick and I feel it outperforms the MBA for daily use. It does not get nearly as hot as the MBA 13.3" under heavy use or simple tasks such as watching NETFLIX; my MBA would get unbelievable hot to the touch and the fan would spin up significantly loud enough that I could not comfortably watch a video, youtube etc.. I use my laptop for a lot of media, but had stopped when I purchased my Macbook Air. However this system has no problem keeping cool and quite; I'm very impressed considering this system uses the same processor as the MBA. I'm glad to be able to fully utilize this system's capabilities without fear of it over-heating or becoming embarrassingly loud in quite settings. This is one of my main reasons for selling my less than several month old MBA. Also, USB 3.0 is a little more ideal for day to day use. Although the MBA can outperform this device in several areas, the Zenbook runs more gracefully and cool. This is important for the longevity and reliability of the system. Battery Life: The battery life seems fairly accurate as advertised as long as you use all of the eco-settings such as lowering the screen to minimum brightness, not doing intensive tasks, etc. Sound: The sound is amazing if your speakers are not defective or there are loose parts inside the machine that rattles the parts to an audible sound. As mentioned in my introduction, my first unit was defective and although the sound quality was good, there was a high-pitched rattling like sound which made it seem the sound quality was poor. The sound is nearly of that of the mac and the speakers can go much louder. Summary: Overall I'm confident with my purchase and I'm glad to own a windows based product from a company that is truly known for innovation in their hardware and reliability.I would recommend this to a friend

Brilliant device, almost perfectPosted .
First I'd like to say that I agree with some reviewer that the mouse and keyboards aren't perfect, but I think overall this is still an fantastic device. Trackpad: The trackpad out of the box is a little buggy, there's a lag when click, and sometimes the cursor jumps a frames when doing scrolling. But luckily Asus is working hard to address this problem, when I called them to ask about the problem I was told they've formed a special team to work on improving the driver for the trackpad. The way they explained it to me is that the pad is too sensitive, and it can be improved dramatically through firmware updates. Within 2 days they sent me the new driver (which is now also available on their website), I uninstall the old driver and install the new one and I immediately notice a huge improvement in trackpad usability. Its not yet Macbook trackpad good, but I also noticed the driver is in beta phase, so I'll sure it'll be further improved in the future. Keyboard: The travel distance is bit short compare to MBA, but I myself actually find it surprisingly nice to type on (also said so by Anandtech reviewer) It takes some time to get used to it, but its not half bad. (I think people have the "drop in letter" problem because the keys are actually larger than regular keyboards, so if you hit the edges of the keys sometimes it won't register the keys. But after a few hours I'm able to type at my regular speed without errors) Screen: The display doesn't have a very wide viewing angle, but I find this to be a plus. To me ultrabook is suppose to be a personal computer, for your own use. The smaller viewing angle provides better privacy when used in public. The contrast ratio is not that best but in return we get a much higher brightness level for the screen, I was able to see my screen clear under the sun in an outdoor area. Appearance, form factor, Convenience: I can't emphasize more on how classy and beautiful this laptop is. Its simply Gorgeous, you'll be proud to show it to anyone. The sturdiness and the lightweight combination makes it extremely portable, easily fits in any handbag, backpack, or even bigger purses. Its very light, I hardly felt it when I have it in my backpack. The concentric circle top cover design gives it a very unique look. The downside is that shiny cover attracts fingerprints, but I don't mind wiping it every now and then cuz its just too pretty. And this attractive machine is going to attract something else, theft!! keep it somewhere self, there's no locking port on the machine. Performance: This computer is fast, I MEAN really Fast, it doesn't have the fastest CPU, but it has the superfast ALL SSD 6gb/s storage. Its fast, really really fast. Before I install anything on the computer, it cold boots in merely 7 seconds!! (took almost 40 seconds for my old windows laptop (i7/hDD)) and The instant on feature is just lovely, it resumes from sleep in 2 seconds, and trust me, its really 2 seconds, I've tested it again and again, it always resume in 2 seconds no matter how long I put it into sleep. The ability to turn it on so quickly makes it want to take it out and use it all the time, whether you are waiting for your coffee or togo lunchbox. The wireless issue as mentioned in some reviewer is resolved by disabling the MIMO power save function in power management. I now have very stable connection at home, at work and at starbucks. Battery Life: I don't have any official tools to test for battery life, but I can usually use it throughout a day without charging it, I don't even carry the charger with me anymore. I'd say under normal usage (email, browsing, musics) the battery lasts roughly around 5 hours, not quite the 7 hours as they advertised but hey, that's just how it is. I haven't had that much time to test the standby time but based on my calculation it can standby for easily over a week (and to remind you during this period the machine resumes again in just 2 seconds!!) Accessories: People don't care about accessories until that one day they find themselves without it. I checked in to an hotel the other day and found on there's no wireless, only ethernet cables, and I just thought to myself that for those rare occasions having to drop 40 dollars for an Ethernet converter is simply not worth it. The Zenbook comes with 2 cable adaptor, display port to VGA and USB to ethernet, don't think I'll be using them very often, but as least I'm never afraid to check into hotels again. Connectivity: display port, mini-HDMI, USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0. I don't own any USB 3.0 devices so I can't test how fast that really is, but if its as advertised that'd be awesome. Its too bad that they didn't include a mini-HDMI to HDMI converter, I wished they had switched the Display to VGA adaptor with mini HDMI to HDMI instead. But I checked and its only 3 dollars on Amazon, no big deal. Sound: I don't know what they other people are talking about with the Speaker not that great. ITS AMAZING!!!! The sound is very crisp, and very loud for a laptop this size. Its without a doubt the best speaker I've ever owned on an laptop. And don't expect to play music with heavy base, you know its not designed for that.... Bottom line: Sorry if I wasted your time to read my lengthy review, I hope you find it somewhat useful. When people pay so much for a laptop they also have very high expectation. And its the same for me, I've waited for ultrabooks for so long and I have to say it meets most of my expectation. For ASUS's first ultrabook I think they did a fantastic Job. Now just waiting for my further improved trackpad driver.I would recommend this to a friend

Ultrabooks give PC new lifeline, tablet alternativPosted .
I have been an exclusive Mac user since 2003. The Ultrabook buzz and my growing disdain for Apple as a company and their "Apple knows what's best for me and the world over" mentality made me give PC another shot. The last version of Windows I used was XP and my switch to Mac OS Tiger destroyed any credibility Windows had in my eyes. I used my PC primarily for business and got so tired of Windows crashing in the middle of running payroll and freezing up in Quickbooks Pro that I figured a Mac could be no worse. Fast forward 9 years later and here I am allow Mr. Gates to court me. I must say that I am far from disappointed and that Windows 7 has made HUGE strides. The build qulaity of the Asus is solid, not quite s good as the Macbook Air but a step in the right direction. The bezel around my screen has several areas where the adhesive is not totally secured. Not make or break but a manufacturing defect that you wouldn't expect to find on an Apple. The Zenbook is pretty speedy. The Sandy Bridge i5 is notI'm thoroughly impressed with the wake from sleep time...under 20 seconds. I usually leave several browser windows open in IE9 and Opera or Chrome and Outlook 2010. I'm getting close to 6 hours on a full charge, primarliy internet browsing and about 45 min video playback with Outlook and wifi connected.. Video playback is smooth and clear. In spite of the high resolution screen, I noticed blacks tend to appear grainy during playback of video. The wifi card works flawless. I have had several occassions where I've had to reconnect and forget the connection, although I think this may be more attributible to my Verizon LTE MiFi connection issues. In summation, ths is a solid PC, the Ultrabook class will definitely slow the tablet craze. I purchased my Zenbook on a price match when Office Dept was selling it for $899. I came awful close to purchasing the Toshiba Portege, the screen just gave me pause it felt..flimsy to say the least but it's loaded with ports. The build quality of the Asus was the deciding factor. Asus appears poised to be a strong contender in the Ultrabook race. The seem to strike a good balance of performance, aesthetics and price.I would recommend this to a friend

Hidden variations of SSD and TouchpadPosted .
Buyer beware, the Asus x31 comes with several variations that are all packaged with the same model number. Run a Google search on "Asus x31 touchpad Elan Sentelic" to learn about the problems with the Sentelic touchpad which were improved when the newer models shipped with Elan. Run a second Google search on "Asus x31 SSD Sandisk SandForce" to learn about the poor test results of the units which were shipped with Sandisk. I found this article to be particularly compelling: http://thessdreview.com/our-reviews/asus-zenbook-ssd-review-not-necessarily-sandforce-driven-shows-significant-speed-bump/ Notice they state that the Sandisk results were amongst the lowest of any SSD they had ever received for any solid state drive when looking at benchmarks as a whole. Likewise it had one of the lowest Vantage test scores they had ever seen in an SSD. By comparison the Sandforce version was receiving rave reviews. The main problem is that the packaging shipped by the manufacturer does not seem to include any indication which touchpad or which SSD is included in the box and they were all shipped with the same model number. I spent over an hour with employees at a Best Buy store including Geek Squard and their warehousing department to try to work out what was inside their box... they couldn't tell me. The only option they gave was that I would have to make the purchase and return it if I wasn't happy with what it contained! Works fine if you are at the store, but not so nice if purchasing online I imagine. I was happy to find it had the Elan touchpad, but was sorry to see that it included the Scandisk driven SSD variation... a deal breaker considering that the exact same model is out there with performance results far better when it has the Sandforce SSD at the exact same price. It could be an issue with what stock is on hand at each store or perhaps this is all that was sent to Best Buy... hard to tell as no one at Best Buy so far has been able to give me that answer. So in the end, I'll have to return it and look elsewhere. Sad because it is a very nice machine and I like buying from Best Buy based on good experiences in the past. Good luck in finding the 'golden ticket'!No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great portable laptopPosted .
I really like the laptop, battery is great, maybe 7 hours with normal use. It is really light, the screen resolution is great, really high at 1600x900 for this small of a screen. The speakers are suprising how loud and good they sound for coming out of a laptop. I actually have a USB speaker that i used on my old laptop, and these built in speakers sound better than that external one I bought for $75. I think the ports and connectivity is good for this laptop, SD card, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, mini-HDMI out (I already had the cable for my tablet). I'm actually going to sell my tablet and use this. It is just as portable, the battery lasts longer, and I can do much more on it. My only gripes are that the edges are so thin on the front of it, that at certain angles it is kinda sharp on my wrists. (haha, complaining that it is too thin). Also, I upgraded the firmware for the trackpad, and one finger gestures work well, but the 2 finger gestures still get annoying sometimes, the 2 finger tap doesnt work at times, and you have to keep at it. Kinda annoying. I'd say I'm only about 70% happy with the trackpad, and the keyboard i'm 90% happy with it. Sometime it will miss a key, but I'm a really quick typer. Thanks, it. Overall. I recommend it. But, I really hope they come out with another way to fix this trackpad (I'm sure they will)I would recommend this to a friend

Sleek, light and fast.Posted .
After reading about all the ultrabook models and options, I decided on the Asus Zenbook (Ux31E) and could not be happier. The design is almost identical to the Macbook Air, but is designed as a windows PC rather than Mac OS. I could have gotten a left over MBA model for slightly less, but installing windows on an MBA results in less battery life due to not being optimized for windows. Pros: 1. Solid build and quality hardware. Looks and feels high end. 2. Slightly faster than an MBA, but almost looks and feels like one. 3. Large touchpad with gestures. Takes a bit to get used to, but works well. 4. Great screen rsolution, brightless and colors. 5. Very good sound system. Much better than the sound from my Lenovo. 6. Nice selection of ports and comes with all needed adapters. 7. Comes with a nice envelope case. 8. Fast 2 second wakeup. 9. Fast i5 CPU. This 1.7 GH blows away my old 2 gh Lenovo dual core CPU. 10. Not much bloatware. 11. Small AC adapter. Just like MBA charger, but witout Magsafe connector. Nice to have the charge LED on the charging plug. 12. SSD storage. No mechanical HD. 13. Smart logon lets you use face recognition or a paired bluetooth cellphone to log on to the PC. Seems a bit gimicky, but nice to have some unique features. 14. Asus "Charge Plus" allows the USB port to charge a cell/mp3 player when sleeping, shutdown or in hybernation mode. Like a huge backup battery for your cell while traveling. 15. Stays cool. After hours of use, I never hear the fan or feel the case get hot. The first laptop I have had that runs this cool! 16. AC adapter has a standard type connector plug. If you were to need an external battery or car charger, it would be much easier to find an aftermarket option for this unit over a Macbook Air (MBA has a propriatary MagSafe connector). Cons: 1. No backlit keyboard. 2. No ambient light sensor. 3. No HDD light. When software is taking longer than usual, it is nice to see if there is HDD accessing going on, or is the PC frozen? 4. SD card slot is not deep enought to leave an SD card in. The card hangs out about .5". 5. After the first windows update, the trackpad and keyboard stopped working. Using a bluetooth keyboard and external mouse, I was able to roll back the drivers for one or both (can't remember) and after a reboot, all was well again. Overall, I am very happy with this unit. Sleek, light, nice design and powerful.I would recommend this to a friend

Hands down one of the best Win7 notebooksPosted .
I never write reviews. The products I buy generally don't make me want to write a review. This laptop, on the other hand, is so darn good that I just have to give it 5 stars. Also, I feel like the 3 -and below- star ratings that other people have been giving this laptop are undeserved. Look and Feel - strong, sturdy, thin, beautiful. Those four words describe this laptop. It feels heavier than it actually is, but it is as portable as a netbook and powerful as any other laptop (if not more). The design is pretty remarkable. They've taken the minimalist road and put just what is needed. I can cut cheese with the thin end -- love it! Screen - I've been so used to dull displays with low resolution. This screen is bright! It goes up to 450nits! On top of that, the resolution is so high that everything is clear and crisp. I still zoom in to see the text (cause I'm blind) but in that aspect the display is bright and crisp. I messed with the graphics options (found by rightclicking on the desktop) and messed with the settings there to get good contrast and whatnot. Mouse - People complained about this so much that I wasn't going to buy the laptop. However, the trackpad works completely fine! I got the latest driver (that's more of a pain to be honest) but ever since then the thing works beautifully. On my old laptop I never had gesture scrolls or anything so it is refreshing to get such nicely working gestures on my laptop. Also, ASUS has a "Tutor" on the desktop right when you start the laptop that tells you all of the gestures. Very neat and really cool. Again, don't let this hinder you from buying the laptop. Keyboard - People also complained about this. I was a bit scared, but after about an hour of typing you become used to it. You just have to be conscious when typing for about half an hour and then you can become just as fast typing on it as you were on your old keyboard. Wifi - no poblems here. I got connected and I've already seen youtube videos and streamed some netflix already. No hiccups. A speedtest got me great speeds. It comes with a pretty good laptop sleeve. The power cord is VERY tiny. I can put it into my pocket. Also, the power cord doesn't slip out as others may have said it does. Instant resume didn't work at first. I'm guessing the computer needs to be setup first. But DON'T turn off instant resume. There's no reason not to have it running. And it literally is 2 seconds. I can finally move with my laptop without having to worry about it taking 30'ish seconds. I don't know what else to say. It's an awesome laptop. Best buy had it for $999 during Black Friday week and that's when I snagged it. Oh and speakers are really good for an ultrabook. I compared with some other speakers from my old Vaio and the sound quality is clear on this laptop. If you're looking for a Windows 7 ultrathin, ultrapowerful notebook -- get this!I would recommend this to a friend

...More like the EPIC bookPosted .
This laptop is exactly what it is advertised: Awesome. PROS: -Screen is vivid and bright. Gorgeous -SSD (super fast! Boots in under 20s, standard usage is nearly instantaneous) -Core i5 dual-core, second gen Sandy Bridge -Lightweight, long battery life (6h+, depending on settings) -Extremely durable design - solid metal casing... They should make all laptops out of this stuff -Free case! And it's not just a thin slip cover, it's a full-on mesh nylon weave with a solid support piece to prevent the computer from bending and dents. CONS: -Considerable amount of ASUS bloatware comes pre-loaded.... but this definitely is not enough to detract a star. For an experienced user, this is about a 5 minute fix. To negate any worries you may have, the touchpad is flawless and the keyboard works quite satisfactorily. Network connection is solid. -The keyboard has a very 'Mac' feel with the spacing between the keys, but give it about 2 days and typing is a breeze. Sounds to me like the negative reviews were simply stubborn users who couldn't adapt. -The touchpad is smooth and fully functional. Gestures work perfectly and pointer tracking is perfect. -I have had no issues with wireless connection dropping. Streaming from the internet and network storage/computers is solid. I am very picky when it comes to electronics and did quite a bit of research before purchasing. I primarily compared this to the Samsung Series 9, which has just about identical specs and is about $100 cheaper. The extra few dollars is DEFINITELY worth it, and is immediately noticeable in the build quality when compared side by side (which I did in the store). The Samsung is flimsy and feels cheap compared to this rock. The ASUS has almost no flex on the screen panel, compared to the Samsung that I felt like I could snap in half with little effort. Resolution is better on ASUS as well. *NOTE: This is NOT a gaming laptop! If you are buying it for such, look elsewhere (or wise up and build a desktop). The HD3000 integrated chip works great for video and basic use, but high-end gaming will be disappointing. - I did install L4D2 just to see if it would run and it does play on low/medium settings (depending on resolution). I'm sure basic arcade-style games would be just fine.I would recommend this to a friend
