Just when you thought there is little left to know and experiment with in the world of ultrabooks, here comes Asus walking on tip – toes and releasing the brand new Assus Zenbook UX32LA and UX32LN Ultrabooks, two laptops to satisfy all tastes and pockets. Even if the big news made it to the media, Asus kept a bit of quiet regarding the ultrabooks, but now that they are here, nothing stops us to take a deeper, closer look at them and see what specialists have to say about them, besides them offering the user the choice of operating on Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 Pro.
The Asus Zenbook UX32LA
This is the budget – friendly one of the family, and even if tech experts say the affordable price is correlated to the relatively low screen resolution – 1,366×768 pixels for a 13.3-inch screen and uses only Intel’s HD Graphics 4400 (as opposed to NVIDIA discrete graphics found on the other model as a supplemental option), the Asus Zenbook UX32LA has pretty neat specifications: Intel Haswell processors available in multiple choices: Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7, a 1 TB of storage and 4GB of RAM. To top it all, in spite of the resolution and the decent price, the Asus Zenbook UX32LA comes with premium features also, including Bang & Olufsen speakers, lit keyboard and a thin, slick, practical case.
The Asus Zenbook UX32LN
The Asus Zenbook UX32LA and UX32LN Ultrabooks may become fierce competitors for the other models in the ultrabook market and the Zenbook UX32LN may be the gladiator Asus was aiming to bring into the battle. It looks pretty much the same like the previously mentioned model, but this one comes with spectacular graphics powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M graphics, an additional feature to the Intel HD Graphics 4400, which makes this ultrabook not only spectacular in graphic performance (if we take into account the 1920 x 1080 pixels screen resolution), but also a bit more expensive.
How much are the Asus Zenbook UX32LA and UX32LN Ultrabooks?
Unfortunately, Asus hasn’t released yet the price range for the U.S. market, but since on European (Germany for instance) markets the Asus Zenbook UX32LA is around 700 Euros, while its more performing brother is said to cost an added 200 Euros (basically because the NVIDIA graphics and maybe the screen resolution too), you can do the math and see if they are worth the price compared to the specs.
