The cheapest version out of the Asus Ultrabooks
The Asus Zenbook UX32LA is the cheapest member in the Zenbook range of products and we can easily think about the 1366 × 768 pixels resolution as the reason for the low price. This laptop weighs about 1.4 kilos. In terms of specifications, this model has three USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI port and DisplayPort, SD card reader, 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 and a battery that provides a power of 50whr. The laptop is available with a choice of Intel processor 4th generation Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7, 4GB RAM capacity up to 1TB of storage (with the option to choose a 128GB SSD or HDD larger capacity).
Asus Zenbook UX32LN, $ 200 more expensive
This model has the same size and shape as the UX32LA, but additionally to the Intel Haswell and Intel HD 4400 graphics, the UX32LN Zenbook uses a dedicated video card Nvidia GeForce GT 840m with a display running at a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels.
In addition to these specifications, the laptop offers the same connectivity options and ports, but because of the display running at a higher resolution and the dedicated video card, the price is definitely higher. The starting price of this model is 200 euro higher than the Zenbook UX32LA, which doesn’t make it the cheapest version out of the Asus ultrabooks. .
Both Asus ultrabooks are available on the specialized market in Germany and are priced at 699 EUR, respectively 899 EUR. Worth it or not? What do you think?
