Asus Zenbook UX51Vz performs well, looks good

 

There's very little not to like about this premium 15-inch laptop, except maybe its price.

Cased in aluminum, the ; is an impressive-looking laptop with an excellent 15-inch screen, a strong combo of components, and prime performance.

A premium price to match its high-end design and components; no touch screen to take full advantage of the Windows 8 interface.

The Asus Zenbook UX51Vz-DH71 is a nice fit for anyone looking for premium looks and performance in a Windows 8 laptop who is willing to pay for it.

ASUS Zenbook Prime review (UX51Vz): a blazing 15-inch Ultrabook with a lofty price

 

Windows 8 has ushered in an era of category-defying devices, with hybrid machines that bend, flip around, lie flat and otherwise contort flooding the

1080p IPS display offers good viewing angles ; Sleek design, comfortable keyboard ; Excellent performance

Underwhelming battery life ; Expensive

The Zenbook Prime UX51Vz is easily the most powerful Ultrabook available, but underwhelming battery life -- and a sky-high price tag -- temper our enthusiasm somewhat.

Asus Zenbook UX51Vz-DH71 review

 

It seems like there just aren't a lot of options when it comes to premium larger-screen Windows 8 laptops. And those that we do see, like the Acer Aspire S7 and HP Spectre TouchSmart XT , typically don't have discrete graphics.

Asus ZenBook UX51Vz-DH71

 

The Asus ZenBook UX51Vz-DH71 is a high-end ultraportable for power users like multimedia mavens and part-time gamers.

1080p IPS screen. Quad-core i7 processor. Nvidia GT 650M graphics. Twin SSDs in a RAID array. Subwoofer. Good sound for a laptop. Additional damage and screen warranty protections.

Mini-VGA, not Mini-DisplayPort. No touch screen. Middling battery life.

ASUS Zenbook UX51VZ: Great Laptop, High Price

 

I have quite a few laptops that have been languishing in a non-fully-reviewed state for a while. The New Year has been a bit crazy, and in the midst of trying to update the benchmark suite and some other items, the time for a full review is long since...

I really like the UX51VZ, but there have been a few flies in the ointment. One is that WiFi connectivity is intermittent—there’s a workaround that involves disabling Bluetooth support, but while I can live with that it’s not ideal for many people....

Asus ZenBook UX51VZ-XB71 Review

 

The revamped Asus ZenBook looks to compete with Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina display adding a 2880 x 1600 15-inch display to its already impressive offering.

Solid Design ; Beautiful Display ; Strong Performance ; Long-Lasting Battery

Expensive ; Heat-Up Easily ; No Fourth-Gen Processor ; No Touch Screen ; The Asus ZenBook offers a sleek and durable design with strong performance and incredible display, but all those features come at a steep cost.

Review Asus Zenbook UX51VZ (U500VZ) Notebook

 

Zen Master. Upscale looks, slim build, and extremely powerful: un

premium aluminum chassis; non-glare IPS display; very high overall performance; good gaming performance; outstanding input devices; powerful 2.1 sound system; very good port selection

high price; too noisy during idle; limited upgradabillity; no DisplayPort

The main competitor is without a question the even higher-quality (if by a slim margin), but much more expensive Apple MacBook Pro 15 Retina. Depending on the usage scenario, other notebooks might also be candidates: the Dell XPS 15, Sony Vaio...
