Legit Reviews have recently taken a look at the impressive ASUS ZENBOOK UX31E Ultrabook, which certainly meets with their approval:\n \n[QUOTE]"Basically, The Intel Ultrabooks are Windows powered alternatives to the hot selling Apple MacBook Air! They are thinner, lighter and often faster than ultraportables that many have used in recent years. The thinner designs on Ultrabooks don't look half bad either thanks to use of lightweight materials like aluminum and magnesium alloy for the housing. Inside you'll find powerful 2nd generation 'Sandy Bridge' Intel Core processors and a solid-state drive to give you a laptop that is snappy and responsive. \n\nThe downside of Ultrabooks being so thin is that you have to give up a few features that most don't need in 2012 and beyond. For starters the optical drive has been kicked to the curb, so if you want to run a CD, DVD or Blu-Ray you'll need to invest in an external USB drive. Other features missing from most Ultrabooks are the ethernet port and DVI video outputs due to how large those connectors are and a removable battery. Most people are running just Wi-Fi now days, but we still run across a hotel or two that don't have Wi-Fi and that wouldn't be a good thing with an Ultrabook. You can always get adapter cables, but who wants to carry that around as that defeats the purpose of having something so light and portable. \n\nNow that you have know what an Intel Ultrabook is all about, we can go ahead and introduce the Ultrabook that we will be reviewing here today."[/QUOTE]\n \nYou can read the full review [URL="http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1903/1/"]here[/URL].
