Ihave been waiting for your review of the ux31a and I have also looked at your review of the Sony Z3 and I am trying to decide between the two.
I use my laptop all day w/ RDP to a desktop over wireless - and would use it for misc other office apps and movie watching during travel. The most important things to me are (1) 1080p resolution, (2) Good keyboard & touchpad setup for extended use, (3) lightweight - both for around the office & for travel w/charger (4) extended battery life (for the Sony I would get the battery slice which does not have an equivalent for the Asus) (5) TPM chip and Windows Professional (so I have to get one of the higher end Asus models and the model I would get is the Ux31a-XB72).
I am very torn between these two and from your reviews, both laptops are great. The additional cost of the Sony is not a big factor. From your descriptions of product - I would love to get your input on this. What would you recommend? Which would you like better for your daily machine? And is it a case where I would probably be happy with either one?
Please help - I would appreciate any input you could give -Bruce
