You're also always in the know when it comes to the battery thanks to ASUS PowerWiz, a utility that shows exactly how much charge is left per application – web browsing, movie watching. ASUS ZENBOOK™ combines power, efficiency, smooth usage and user empowerment, all on in one sleek package.
ASUS is proud to deliver the world's first ultrabook with SATA 6Gbps solid state storage, making for an amazingly smooth and fast computing experience. Additionally, all ASUS ZENBOOK™ models ship with USB 3.0 as standard, multiplying the transfer rates of current USB 2.0 by as much as a factor of ten! Combined, SSD storage and USB 3.0 create incredible speed of data transfer rates.
Another ASUS exclusive, SonicMaster technology was co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® to deliver breathtaking, lifelike audio that far exceeds the limitations of conventional notebook PC sound performance. Deeper, more remarkable and wider in range, SonicMaster delivers four times the sound output of other ultrabooks without increasing the size or weight of the form factor.
The Asus Zenbook UX31E is nothing more than on of the nicest notebook on the market. It is amazing something that small can be so good without compromising the performance.
||Stuff Magazine 5-Star Award
All-metal design, a hi-res 13.3in. screen and dual-core Core i7 innards: ASUS' Ultrabook has brains and beauty. Enough of both, in fact, to make it the most enviable Windows laptop in the world.
Stunning design, quality manufacturing and finishing. Display with high resolution and excellent brightness. Extremely thin and light
Every detail is implemented perfectly at a highest manufacturing level but the resulting price is rather too steep.
