        Comments about ASUS Zenbook UX32VD-DS72 13.3" Ultrabook Computer (Silver):

        Used for travel, photo/video work, interface with TV for streaming video.

        Size, weight, and features met my needs. Like the double SSDs, regular HDMI out, screen size and resolution. Sound is better than any laptop I have owned before. Not great or anything just better and bearable if you have to use the speakers.

        So far (4 mos) seems well made. 3rd Asus laptop in our home. If you get a lemon, Asus is as horrible as the rest to deal with. If you get a good one, you just need their website occasionally for downloads. They are good there.

        Battery life okay at about 4 hours or sometimes more if I shut down what I don't use. (blue tooth, webcams, etc.)

        Until something breaks, I'm really pleased with overall quality, feel, etc. Biggest weakness is Windows 8, but I've learned and worked it to be like Windows 7 as much as possible Touch pad is touchy at first, but like anything you get used to it. Keyboard is nice but large amout of flat space for palms throws off my touch typing a bit.

        They give you a nice dark burgandy laptop case and in a matching mini accessory case: a mini VGA to 9 pin VGA adapter and an USB to network adapter if you need to hardwire hookup.

              Comments about ASUS Zenbook UX32VD-DS72 13.3" Ultrabook Computer (Silver):

              I've owned this laptop for about a month and I couldn't be happier. First, I will say that I am a Computer Scientist by profession and a musician by night. I have owned many laptops, including the MacBook Air, and this is hands down the best of them all.The 1080p display is gorgeous, and the keyboard and trackpad do not disapoint. I got this laptop with dual 128gb SSDs and the 3rd gen Core i7. Despite only being advertised as having the Intel HD4000 integrated graphics card, it also came with the NVidia 620m discreet memory graphics card. An absolute steal for $ .As I said, I am also a musician, so in addition to development work, I primarily use this laptop for running DAW software during live performances twice a week using Reason 6, Ivory II, and Cubase 6 in conjunction with a full-size midi keyboard. The sound card produces no audio artifacts and key response times are around 11 ms - completely uunnoticeable. My only beef is it has a relatively short battery life at about 4 hours, but I almost never have to use the battery anyway. All in all, this is a fantastic buy and I recommed it to anyone who is in the market for a no-nonsense ultrabook.

                Comments about ASUS Zenbook UX32VD-DS72 13.3" Ultrabook Computer (Silver):

                I'm a full-time student about to finish and I feel that this Ultrabook will be able to handle the multimedia and work tasks. It's fast, very light & sturdy, has a phenomenal display, and a good bit of storage SSD space.

                I despised windows 8 at first, but found a program/app called "Classic Shell" that saved me from cursing Microsoft. It will add the start menu button that most people are use too.

                The touch pad can be slightly sensitive, but I would rather have that than one that was the opposite.

                If this was just a bit more affordable it would be incredible. This is the best laptop that I have.

                  Comments about ASUS Zenbook UX32VD-DS72 13.3" Ultrabook Computer (Silver):

                  I am a tech person and I spent weeks debating on what my next laptop should be - and I kept going back to this Asus ultrabook. Sure, it's thin and light (very thin and light!) (and beautiful) but it's also packed with an i7 processor, SSD, and dedicated nVIDIA 620m video card (even though the description says Intel HD 4000 - which, yes, that is there too).

                  It only comes with 4GB of RAM (2x2GB, where one DIMM is not changeable). You can upgrade the other 2GB to an 8GB stick and make a total of 10 GB of RAM.

                  Asus has really designed this elegantly and got it correct with the quality. The screen is by far the most amazing thing about this ultrabook. It's 1920x1080 resolution matte screen makes it look real - it does not look like an actual screen. It's also incredibly bright.

                  The touchpad is wonderful, and the keyboard is nice too although because of the laptop being so thin, it's a little harder to type on. Battery is OK so far... usually about 4 hours. Could have been better but can't complain.

                  GREAT ultrabook! Best on the market currently.

                          This review has three parts. The 5 stars are based on part one.1. The computer is well made, the screen is great, and at 3 lbs. it meets my need for a lightweight travel computer, mostly to support my photography hobby. The touch pad is hard to get used to, but I purchased a Microsoft Sculpt Touch Mouse, so that is not a problem for me. The 256 GB SSD is by SanDisk. I understand that there is another drive by another supplier that is faster, but this one meets my needs. The computer comes with 4 GB RAM. Upgrading to 10 GB was fairly simple. The back is removed by unscrewing 12 tiny screws. I had to purchase an inexpensive screwdriver kit to do so (9AT2000436) by Anytime Tools. As you can see from the picture I have posted, access to the memory is very simple. It also appears that it should be easy to replace the SSM, but I have not done so. The SSM has two 128 GB chips, and it is formatted as two separate drives. Drive C: has 92GB and drive D: has 116.69 GB available. The rest is used for boot sectors and recovery files.2. Windows 8.Given the bad press Windows 8 has received, I was skeptical. Indeed, there is indeed a learning curve. Things are not where they used to be. But that is not necessarily bad. Having taken the time to learn (and understand) Windows 8, I am now comfortable with it. I suggest the nay-sayers reacted too soon in their criticisms.3. Customer support.Here I will give all parties involves at most one star. The computer booted up with a Start Screen very different from the one seen in Microsoft documentation. I have posted a screen shot with this review. In my opinion this screen rendered the computer worthless..... My first step was to call Microsoft Customer Support. The tech did not understand what my problem was, then he hung up. Asus by e-mail asked me to reload the OS and if that did not work to return the computer for repair. Being stubborn, i decided to spend time with the system. It turned out that the computer had booted in "High Contras Mode". Clicking on a well hidden menu option solved the problem.Should not customer support know this?
