1 out of 5 eggsSo far, not so good

Pros: It worked for a month

Cons: It doesn't work now

Other Thoughts: This went from bad to worse.

After a month and a half the iSSD completely died causing long bootup times and general slowness. There is no BIOS option for disabling the device check and it is SOLDERED to the motherboard. As an aside - this is not an uncommon issue after I checked the interwebs. I'm stubborn and was willing to endure until...this week the NVIDIA discrete video card died. Followed quickly by the onboard Intel HD graphics. It's a brick at this point.

Sending it in for service since it's still under warranty but honestly just wishing I hadn't bought this thing to begin with. Ironically, first personal laptop I've ever bought.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize if you started experiencing slow bootup process with the laptop. Please try to do a PC Refresh, install all recommended WINDOWS Updates and upgrade to WINDOWS 8.1 to resolve the issue. We recommend using a LAN connection to speed up the update process. If you need further assistance, please email me at and write down service# 3748770 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

4 out of 5 eggsASUS Zenbook UX32VD-DH71 Ultrabook - Intel Core i7 6GB RAM 500GB HDD+24GB SSD 13.3" FHD NVIDIA GT 620M Windows 8

Pros: It is really hard to find a laptop that is 13.3 inches or smaller with an Nvidia grapphics card and an i7 processor. All of the intel integrated gpus being sold in all laptops can barely run games from the 1990's. The keyboard is nice and quiet plus it has a back light. No real complaints about this computer.

Cons: The screen is 13.3 inches but the frame surrounding the screen has a big border, so the computer does not seem as small as it may appear.

Other Thoughts: My laptop came with two 3-5 inch scratches on the screen. They are not thick so I do not notice them when the computer is running, but it is lame buying a new computer and it having some damage. It seems like products from new egg are never 100% new. I recommend buying somewhere else

5 out of 5 eggswow!

Pros: I was looking at this ultrabook, and a samsung series 9 hd. I chose this one for a few reasons, the first was the upgrade ability this one has. Another reason was the warranty. My last Asus had an "accident" about day 300 of owning it, and they replaced it under the 1 year accidental. When I received it, the look was the first thing that surprised me, I was expecting a very nice looking ultrabook, but this blew me away. It's fast. Even with an ssd upgrade, it is still plenty fast. I've read a lot of reviews with people complaining about the keyboard flex, it is there, but the people complaining must be typing with hammers to have it effect their typing. The trackpad is also really nice, I haven't experienced any of the things people have complained about. It doesn't get in my way while typing, ever. The resolution is the main reason I bought this. I wanted 1080p in a 13" ultrabook, this has delivered just that. No more 1400x900 or lower. Images and video are crystal clear and view-able from almost any angle, which i guess could be a con as well. The sound is also really good for any laptop, let alone one this small. It doesn't want to make me put headphones on just to watch something. It does everything as it was advertised. Upgrading to an SSD and installing windows 7 was easier than any youtube video made it look (see other thoughts).

Cons: The bottom panel feels very cheap. I first noticed when I had it in my lap and went to lift it. It feels like a thin piece of cheap metal. When I took it off, I realized that's exactly what it is.

Maybe I've been spoiled by the magnetic plug on my 2010 Macbook, but the plug on this ultrabook is really terrible. It's an L shape which is good, but the power brick is attached to the plug itself, so I end up with a giant black box sticking out of my wall. Why do I care? This makes plugging it into small spaces a pain. It is also quite loose connecting to the ultrabook. The connection itself is tight, but you can clearly see metal when it's plugged in. I have a feeling this will be the first thing to fail.

The battery on this is just not nearly as good as it should be. Chrome with a couple tabs, ms word, and maybe some Minecraft thrown in there, 3-4 hours is what I'm getting out of the battery. and this IS with the back lit keyboard off, and screen brightness turned down. This makes me really sad. My 2010 macbook on its original battery still gives me 7-8hours of actual use without the brightness turned down.

Another con is I think I either have to give this to my wife or buy another for her. I don't have another $1000 to do that.

Other Thoughts: I used Windows 8 on this long enough to fully update it. That was my first and only experience with it, so I can't really say anything about it.

After the updates completed, I took the bottom panel off to install an SSD (240gb Crucial m500) and windows 7. This was very very very very easy. It was harder for me to find a Torx 5 than it was to put the SSD in. If you're looking at this and an ssd and don't currently have one, do yourself a favor and add one to your cart.

Once I took the panel off, all videos showed having to remove the battery, this just isn't true. I had to unscrew the battery to get to the hard drive, but then all I had to do was slide it out of the way. The ssd went it exactly how it should have. I was a little worried about installing Windows 7 off a usb as I had bought an oem copy on dvd. A quick google search came up with software that made the transfer very easy. I also worried about having to change a bios setting or something to get it to recognize the ssd, I was wrong. I plugged the usb drive in and turned it on. Quickest Windows 7 install ever. A quick trip to the asus website for drivers, and this thing is perfect even with its cons.

In all honesty, this was my second choice. If I was able to upgrade the ram and ssd in the series 9, I would have bought it instead. I don't regret this purchase at all . I just think there is some things Asus should have done better. If you're thinking about buying it, I would. My list of requirements was very restrictive:

13" 1920x1080 display, yep this has it.
no touchscreen, this one really narrowed it down.
If it shipped with 4gb of ram, it had to be upgradable.
256gb ssd or upgradable
ultrabook. I have no use for dvd drives and didn't want one.
under $1500

with those requirements it was really down to this the series 9 hd or 1-2 other ultrabooks, they all missed at least 1 of my requirements except this one. So I bought it, and am extremely glad I did even if it did drop $100 while my order was processing..

4 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop, not without issues

Pros: Excellent build quality, keyboard feels great, screen is gorgeous, light and durable construction, decent battery life.

Cons: FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD GET RID OF WINDOWS 8!!!! also the wifi card is the worst thing that has ever existed behind windows 8, recommend replacing with a better one. (at the time of this review have an intel ac/b/g/n card on order, will report back), slight rattle from left hand speaker. standard ssd is tiny, caused problems when installing windows 7.

Other Thoughts: bought this for something powerful and light to program on the go, so far getting it to work right has been a giant hassle. Will be fine for anyone just looking for a nice light laptop

3 out of 5 eggsChaotic Zenbook

Pros: Great piece of machinery. The keyboard is comfy, the display is beautiful, the trackpad is responsive - it's just plain sexy.

Cons: The speakers sound surprisingly good for how small they are, but they are covered by cheap plastic grates that can pop out of the casing easily. This happened to one of the speakers on my laptop as I was pulling it out of its case and it ended up tearing the plastic right off, leaving a hole with a jagged edge.

My other concerns lie in the software. Asus Instant-On is a joke and there's no way to get it to run in the background, so the icon is forever open on your start bar. Asus Smart Gesture - the software responsible for things like two-finger scrolling - likes to stop working sporadically, and the windows 8.1 update has brought a whole new list of problems to the machine. These are outlined below:
1) the zenbook has a very high resolution display which is awesome, but for some reason Windows 8.1 decided to add a featuer where you can choose whether to render programs in "high dps" or not. The funny thing is, rendering in high-dps actually makes things that aren't related to the operating system fuzzy which is very counter intuitive. Programs like iTunes, Chrome, and Illustrator showed up as pixelated shadows of their formerly crisp selves and the only way to fix the issue was to manually change the display settings for each program.
2) The network drivers are AWFUL. Yes intel, I did even use your customized network hardware detection tool to update to the most current drivers - several times might I add. This was a problem when I first bought the laptop, and with the new Windows update, seems to have become a problem again.
3) Windows 8.1 is supposed to be small and sleek. It should boot fast and allow for easy multitasking. I didn't spend $1300 to have to wait 10 seconds for Microsoft Word to load. Windows has gotten slow, clunky, and unresponsive. The team has stopped hearing the cries of its users, and if they continue to head down the path they are on in making bad products that no one can or wants to use, not even their sheer size will save them.

Other Thoughts: A generally good piece of hardware with a few minor flaws. Poorly engineered software to back it up. I may nuke my drive and switch to Linux when I get time.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Thing I've Ever Spent Money On!

Pros: Expandable / Upgradable. Fast!, Pretty! Runs cool. Fast Startup. Great battery life! If I can work with a less-than optimal brightness I've had my battery last 8+ hours with Windows 8. Durable.

Cons: The RAM and HDD that this comes with is fine, but upgrading is highly recommended!

Other Thoughts: I bought this over a year ago! It's in the same league as computers five times as heavy! The video card is plenty good for most games and even playable for extreme games.

This is the best Ultrabook available anywhere, regardless of manufacturer or OS. Better screen (higher res, matt surface, better color), Faster HDD (especially now that i've swapped it out), more RAM (again, swapped. Now running 10GB), better keyboard and trackpad.

I wondered when I bought my Asus if it would be as sturdy as ... another popular choice. Now that I own both it's clear that the Asus is much more sturdy. The computer is light enough to carry anywhere like you would a tablet. It has a very nice kevlar case that protects pretty well and looks very nice.

I have recommended this computer to a bunch of people and everyone who took my advice was well pleased. I got my wife a similar model.

I am now a BIG fan of Asus! It would take a lot for me to consider buying something different!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Over all one of the best computers I have had. Works with Mint - have yet to try Kubuntu but since thay are the same family I think it would work with any flavor of the Debian family.

Cons: Because of the compact design you need to take alot apart to swap out the HD.

Other Thoughts: I am just guessing but I don't think some one put in the correct ammout of time when putting mine together. I found this out when I put in a SSD HD. There were two screws missing and one almost stripped out on the battery. It worked 100% but now the 'F" keys are not working correctly - it's hard to disable and enable the touchpad.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat ultra book

Pros: Light, great resolution, plenty of power for your average computing (no gaming for me, just media, word processing, spreadsheets, QB).

Cons: The wifi has kicked on and off occasionally since getting it. Not our router, but could be software. Easily resolved but the only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5. Windows 8 is best optimized on touchscreen. Sensitive keypad makes for issues with typing text sometimes.

Other Thoughts: For your average computer user who does little more than use MS Office, Quicken or QB, internet surfing and media (Netflix, music download, etc.) this is a great computer. When you take away the software (Windows 8) I can find little issue with this computer. Peeves? Sure, everyone has those but that's individual, not really design or hardware problems. Mine: swipe from L-R on touchpad changes window and I inadvertantly do that a lot, gets annoying, but I also use it purposefuly a lot so...I am ok with it. While typing I get a lot of cursor changes on the screen b/c the pad registers occasional touches as changes in cursor position so I move from one place in my text to another, or in worst case I select and delete an entire body of text. This can be common with a lot of computers but seems accentuated with this one. Just need to learn to type and not touch the pad. Computer runs Windows 8 well and the thing has not slowed down for browsing at all since purchase. Not sure if that is the computer itself or the software not getting bogged down from all of the junk it picks up on the internet. This average user can find little legitimate issues with this ultra book. Thumbs up. (Speakers are ok for such a small book)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Computer

Pros: Lightweight while still being a powerful computer.

Cons: I wish the system came with more RAM from the get go as I feel like 8 GB future proofs things a bit. Although the system runs great as is

Other Thoughts: My company has purchased 4 Zenbooks. We have had all of them for about 7-8 months as of writing this review and we have had no issues *knock on wood*.
Plan to buy more. They get a lot of compliments.
