      I use this laptop for college. I actually work on heavy simulations using linux and this thing is just pure beauty. The CPU is more powerful than I initially expected, the screen is jaw dropping.. seriously. I had to buy my desktop an IPS monitor after using this laptop. What else ? The screen having high resolution is really nice. I boot xfce arch linux in about 7 seconds. Love it.

      Initially the touchpad was getting in my way of typing. after a few tweaks here and there, got it to work just the way I want it. Battery gives me roughly 6h.

      I bought this notebook for the screen. The contrast and saturation don't shift wildly as you view from different heights, and you're not constantly adjusting to find the "sweet spot". The whole screen is sweet, from any angle. The thinness and great battery life are icing on the cake. But it has a very large touchpad and either the touchpad or the keyboard are off-center. The keyboard Home Keys are over the left half of the touchpad. The "F" key is over the left side of the keypad, and the "H" key is directly over the center of the keypad. If you are a right-handed two-finger typist this is the notebook for you! But if you are a left-handed touch-typist like me, it is very stressful to use this computer because the "other half" of the touchpad that you can't realy reach with your left index finger us underneath your right palm, causing all sorts of havoc on your screen. I guess I'll figure out how to work around the problem, probably by using an external mouse, but I'll never enjoy using this notebook as much as I deserve to.

        Comments about ASUS UX31A-DB71 Zenbook Prime 13.3" Ultrabook Computer:

        The ASUS UX31A was my choice after a fair amount of research into ultrabooks, looking for a fast, light product to use while traveling for photography. The solid state hard drive is a main consideration as is the quad core drive. The book will be packed in my camera bag for editing while on the go.

        I am very pleased with the product's performance, weight and appearance. It is exponentially faster than conventional hard drives and doesn't ever hiccup on startup. The only thing I would add is a third USB port - inasmuch as I am an inveterate mouse user.

        Comments about ASUS UX31A-DB71 Zenbook Prime 13.3" Ultrabook Computer:

        Perfection is not of this world, so I tend to never give the maximum number of stars. Nevertheless I'm VERY satisfied with my purchase. I was going for light weight and powerful, but got so much more. The display is fantastic, with very wide viewing angles. I use it a lot in brightly lit environments yet the readability remains excellent. The keyboard keys have the best responsiveness and feel I've ever experienced on a laptop.I'm a software developer so I need processing power, and I can say this baby delivers. When I work I usually have 5 to 8 programming tools open simultaneously, which would put any mid-range laptop on its knees, but not this one. But don't be fooled. It'll never replace your dual-Xeon workstation monster. Of course not, it's a laptop, and it has only 4Gb of ram.Mine came with a Sandisk SSD, which while it isn't the fasted on the market it doesn't seem to slow me down in any way (I hate to wait because it interrupts my "flow" when I'm working).The graphics chip is on the weaker side, so not fit for heavy gaming. Casual gaming, online Flash games works fine. My 10yo likes to play Minecraft on it and it runs descent.I used it at work during meetings and the ethernet connection through the plug-on external port works like a charm (my company doesn't allow Wifi).I use Wifi at Starbucks and I find it better than on my previous HP rig.Long story short, if I had to replace my Zenbook for any reason, I'd buy the exact same one again!

            Comments about ASUS UX31A-DB71 Zenbook Prime 13.3" Ultrabook Computer:

            The best things about this notebook in the order of importance to me:
            --It's so light! I can bring it to the breakfast table to read my news and check my mail, and still feel I'm lugging nothing much more than my phone.
            --It's so FAST!I love the solid state drive, or the blazing CPU, or Windows 8. I'm not sure which of these, if not all working so well together, is most responsible for for the speed, but MS Word, for example, LEAPS up almost as soon as you click the shortcut. Not like my other computers where I'm used to waiting.
            --It connects without any nagging. Whether I've got it at home or carry it to work, I never have to coax it into a Wi-Fi connection. Again, fast and reliable.
            The chicklet keys take some getting used to, and the touchpad seems a bit jumpy, but I don't like touchpads, in general, and this one isn't any harder to use, I guess.
            I have post-purchase consumer joy. Can you tell?

              It's been only two weeks, but i'm really pleased with this purchase, i was looking for a replacement for my laptop for at least 2 weeks, checking Samsung, lenovo, Asus and Sony, finally i decided for the UX31A.

              Was a little bit worried about the brand of the SSD, because some reviews mentioned that the writing speeds aren't so good but so far isn't give me any problems.

              It's a little difficult to get used to the size of the things in a 1080 display but whit the time you don't even notice it.

                Everything they say is true (the good stuff that is). Weight, check; Thin, check; power, check; battery life, (mostly) check; fast boot times, check; quiet, check; and screen (oh, yeah!). Yes, the touch pad is a bit touchy, but I haven't had a chance to swamp drivers/adjust settings yet. That should improve. I do love that I can zoom in and out on the browser pages with my fingers. Comes in handy with that HD screen and my old eyes. Overall, I am extremely impressed and very happy with my purchase.

                      The only thing that I did not like about the ultrabook was the software bundle it comes with it. I would recommend backing up the computer and getting rid of anything that you would rather not have on there. The ultrabook is sleek and stylish. The 1080p display is definitely the best thing about the ultrabook though.

                        I have wanted an Asus zenbook since it came out over a year ago. I could noy justify getting one at the time so I waited for the next generation to come out. I am happy I did wait. I love this laptop. Battery life is about 6 hours and I have not received any problems from the trackpad or the keyboard. This laptop does have the sandisk ssd but if I was not told that it was slower than I would not have noticed. I purchased the core i7 and 256GB model. The laptop does come with some bloatware but that was easily fixed. I did have to expand the C: drive partition but that was not an issue.

                        Super duper computer. Although I did have a problem with the fan, as it would turn on and off at full speed at every other minute after resuming from sleep. I uninstalled the Asus Live Update and the Intel Thermal applications and it fixed the fan cycling on and off. I would give it five stars if the battery life was longer, the fan was quieter during online multitasking, and the speakers were good enough for playing music in my room.

                            The i7 256GB SSD matched to the amazing build quality and display of this unit exceed my expectations. I build massive budget spreadsheets for my company (90 tabs, 30 columns and 200+ rows) linked to other files and this thing blazes through the task. I also edit photos and HD videos and do page design in CS6. No problem.

                            The keyboard is the best of the Ultrabooks I sampled (almost all of them). There is no fan noise, no heat problem, no screen bleed and the battery life is enough to get me from NYC to LA with plenty of battery to spare. And at less than 3 lbs., it's a terrific travel companion.

                            If the screen was touch capable and opened 180 degrees so I could use it with Windows 8 and read magazines on it I'd use if for magazines, keep my Kindle for books and give my iPad away. For now, however, it's the best.

                            first impression: computer is slow.had to turn bloatware off, change lots of config and it's better.touch pad is "touchy", making lots of mistakeskeyboard: wish it had the page up/down home/end keys that the older u80 and new u47 hasdisplay: wish it was larger, like 14in display using small bezel to fit 13' laptop (others do it)for the price, it should have a dedicated gpu option like the ux32vdpositives: it's small, light, solid feed. love the power brick but wish the plug into laptop was smaller.if only bhp allowed returns on computers, I would have returned it.

                              I use this laptop for college. I actually work on heavy simulations using linux and this thing is just pure beauty. The CPU is more powerful than I initially expected, the screen is jaw dropping.. seriously. I had to buy my desktop an IPS monitor after using this laptop. What else ? The screen having high resolution is really nice. I boot xfce arch linux in about 7 seconds. Love it.

                              Initially the touchpad was getting in my way of typing. after a few tweaks here and there, got it to work just the way I want it. Battery gives me roughly 6h.

                                Comments about ASUS UX31A-DB71 Zenbook Prime 13.3" Ultrabook Computer:

                                I had been waiting for this ultrabook for some time. And I wasn't disappointed. Its design, form factor and performance is impeccable. The screen looks amazing. The wake-from-sleep is instant as far as I can tell (i can't even get to 2 secs) and everything is fast and performs well. It's completely silent. An overall excellent package. The one negative is that the B&H UX31As seem to come with the Sandisk SSD not the ADATA SSD (which performs far better) but I guess that's out of B&H's control.

                                  I bought two Asus UX31A Zenbook Prime with 256 GB SSD. The shipment arrived at mentioned by B&H (a day earlier). Asus kept to its expectations. The Zenbooks drawback of keyboard is completely corrected in Zenbook Prime. I would recommend this to everybody.
