      #43596 - 10/24/12 02:34 PM

Asus today announced an expanded range of sleek and stylish ZENBOOK ultraportables that cater for every mobile need. Here's more info on these new Asus ultraportable laptops:

ASUS ZENBOOK features a choice of 3rd generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors for outstanding multi-tasking performance, up to 10GB memory and powerful NVIDIA GT graphics. Flexible storage options are also available, including high-capacity hard drives, hybrid drives with solid-state cache for accelerated performance and blazingly fast SSD drives for near-instant app launch times.

The expanded ZENBOOK range features models with 11.6", 13.3", 14", and 15.6" Full HD displays that are ideal for working with multiple windows side-by-side and enjoying high-definition movies in crisp detail. IPS display technology is standard across the range too, giving a bright, vibrant image with accurate colours and 178* wide viewing angle. Capacitive multi-touch displays are also available on the ZENBOOK U500VZ and UX31A for intuitive fingertip control with Windows 8, and a quick and easy way to work with large multimedia libraries.

Fully featured for flexible use
Backlit keyboards that automatically respond to ambient light levels and large multi-touch touchpads make ZENBOOK the perfect productivity tool. Dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 offer high-performance wireless connectivity, while USB 3.0 ports offer full support for the latest high-speed external storage devices and rapid mobile-device recharging. ASUS Super Hybrid II technology also gives longer battery life too, and up to two weeks' standby time with two-second resume.

ZENBOOK is also ideally suited to entertainment. The ZENBOOK U500VZ, UX32VD, UX42VS and UX52VS all feature NVIDIA GT mobile graphics for outstanding visual performance, while ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, gives superlative sound quality across the entire range. An external subwoofer with the ZENBOOK U500VZ, plus internal optical drives on the ZENBOOK UX42VS and UX52VS, offer a rich home entertainment experience, too.


With a razor-thin design that tapers to a mere 3mm and a weight of just 1.1kg, the ZENBOOK UX21A is one of the thinnest and lightest ultraportables around. Available with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and 4GB memory, the UX21A also features a brilliant Full HD display and 256GB SSD storage.

A 13.3" Full HD display with optional capacitive multi-touch gives fingertip control with Windows 8 on the ZENBOOK UX31A. Available with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 8GB memory and 256GB SSD storage, the UX31A features a slender design that tapers from 18mm to just 3mm and a low 1.3kg weight that makes it easy to carry.

The world's first 13.3" Ultrabook with discrete graphics, the ZENBOOK UX32VD features NVIDIA GT 620M graphics with 1GB VRAM for outstanding visuals on its Full HD display. Available with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, 6GB memory and dual 256GB SSD storage with RAID 0, the UX32VD has stunning performance to match its stunning good looks.

Despite a slender profile that tapers to 6mm and a low 1.9kg weight, the ZENBOOK UX42VS features an internal optical drive for enjoying DVD movies on its brilliant 14" HD display. Available with an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 ULV processor and 6GB memory, the UX42VS also features powerful NVIDIA GT 645M graphics with 1GB GDDR5 VRAM and up to 1TB high-performance hybrid hard drive storage.

With an Intel Core i5 or i7 ULV processor, 10GB memory and up to 1TB high-performance hybrid hard drive storage, the ZENBOOK UX52VS is an ultraportable powerhouse. Powerful NVIDIA GT 645M graphics with 1GB GDDR5 VRAM give outstanding visuals on the 15.6" Full HD display too, all in a sleek design that weighs just 2.2kg and measures 6mm at its edge.

The ZENBOOK U500VZ is a premium ultraportable with incredible amounts of performance, thanks to a powerful Intel Core i7 quad-core standard-voltage processor and 8GB memory. NVIDIA GT650M graphics with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM gives incredible performance with demanding professional applications on the brilliant 15.6" Full HD display, while optional capacitive multi-touch gives intuitive fingertip control with Windows 8. The U500VZ also features dual 256GB SSD storage with RAID 0 for near-instant app launching and the external subwoofer provides cinematic sound -- all in a sleek design that weighs just 2kg and measures a mere 6mm at its thinnest point.
