Aiming to continue producing a slew of quality products, Asus has recently given its Zenbook line an overhaul. The new and improved Zenbook Prime boasts a brilliant 13.3-inch 1080p display, discrete graphics, and plenty of connectivity options — but, along the way, has added some extra bulk to accommodate it all. Don’t get us wrong, at 18 mm thick, it’s still relatively thin… even for an Ultrabook.
Despite the fact that the 1080p display is supposed to be the UX32’s standout feature, it suffers from some backlight uniformity problems. Some of the LED’s along the edges of the display shine brighter than others, which create hotspots during dark scenes. This doesn’t ruin the laptop by any means, and it’s still miles ahead most of its competitors. Still, it does detract from what should be the computer’s best attribute.
Overall, the Zenbook Prime UX32 has a lot to offer, so be sure check out our full Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD review for further details on specs and see how it did in our performance tests.
