Asus UX21

 

First Look: The first 11in ultrabook we've handled is an absolute stunner

All that remains to be seen is how its battery life holds up and how much it retails for when it arrives later this year.

Asus Zenbook UX21 review

 

One of the best 11-inch laptops - but can it justify its price?

Light and slim ; Sandy Bridge power ; Strong ; Carry case supplied ; Great battery life

Pricey for an 11-inch machine ; Small keyboard ; Limited connectivity ; Frustrating track pad

The Asus Zenbook UX21 is the first 11-inch ultrabook to hit the shelves, joining the likes of the Acer Aspire S3 and its bigger brother, the Asus Zenbook UX31.

Asus Zenbook UX21E review

 

The Asus Zenbook UX21E is a shiny example of the modern 11in ultraportable notebook.

We’re inclined to affirm that we do believe in love at first sight. But since that initial look was of the laptop that launched this copy, our heart does stay with the MacBook Air. Make no mistake though, the Asus UX21E Zenbook is the best copy of any...

Asus ZenBook UX21 review

 

Ultrabooks are the Windows alternative to a MacBook Air, but until now we've only seen examples with 13in screens, leaving the 11in Air unchallenged. Fortunately Asus breaks this trend with its UX21; an 11in version of the Asus ZenBook UX31.

Currently the smallest ultrabook available, the Asus ZenBook UX21 isn't perfect, but it’s the only viable alternative to an 11in MacBook Air

Asus Zenbook UX21 review

 

Despite plenty of room for improvement, Asus' adorable Zenbook UX21 is an 11.6in Ultrabook with an obvious allure

In everyday use, performance is a non-issue. The 4GB of memory and 128GB SSD keep the system punching well above its weight, and the speed of that SSD allows the system to boot from cold with unnerving haste.

Asus UX21E Zenbook 11.6in Ultrabook

 

Review Having already reviewed the slightly larger Asus UX31E Zenbook [1] for El Reg, and quite liking it, I whinged that sending me the UX21E model would be a waste of time. It wasn't, obviously, because you're reading this. I loved it. In fact, I...

The Asus Zenbook UX21E is thinner, lighter and much more fun to use than I thought possible for an 11in notebook. Built to last and to impress, it manages to look amazing and cute at the same time. If the viewing angle on the display had been a few...

Asus Zenbook UX21E ultrabook review

 

Great for portability but let down by poor battery life

Great design, bright screen, fast resume times, Intel Core i5 chip

Limited ports

The UX21E Zenbook offers great performance and is priced at £850, with accessories included. However, it is still difficult to recommend the device to traveling users based on the limited battery life and poor trackpad.

Asus Zenbook UX21E ultrabook review

 

Asus has launched a pint-sized ultrabook that aims to provide business users with a Windows equivalent of the acclaimed 11in Apple Macbook Air.

Looks great, highly portable, lightning performance

Disappointing battery life, terrible trackpad

One of the most portable and affordable ultrabooks on the market, but the UX21E is not quite going to fulfil the needs of business users.

Asus Zenbook UX21 – review

 

Kate Bevan: Asus has taken a leaf out of Apple's book and come up with a slimline laptop that's packed with power

beautiful design, good touchpad, battery life, good audio

disappointing screen, no configuration options

However, the design, weight and thoughtfulness of the whole package do justify the price: this is a seriously nice laptop that despite some niggles, is a pleasure to use.

Asus Zenbook UX21E-DH52

 

A mix of ultrabook and ultraportable, the Asus Zenbook UX21E-DH52 is a formidable challenger to the 11-inch MacBook Air.

Marvelously thin and light. Bright screen. Nifty AC adapter. VGA and Ethernet dongles and case included.

Stiff, non-backlit keyboard. Reflective screen. No memory-card slot. Lethal power button position.
