  • 4.8 / 5
    • The good:
      Components make for a very fast unit; Good battery life; Superb screen; Great image and sound quality
    • The bad:
      Lid is prone to scratches; Touch pad is maybe a little too large; Bulky

    ASUS with its ZEN series has made a considerable mark in the market. Zenbook combines high standard technology with a modern design.


    When it comes to design, ASUS Zen Book PRIME has a lightweight and sleek profile, making it a great travel companion. The notebook is compatible with the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors while SATA 6Gbps SSD storage surpasses other normal hard drives handily. Another great improvement is the USB 3.0 the system which runs ten times faster than USB 2.0. Cutting edge technology in Wireless connectivity is derived from Bluetooth 4.0 and enhances its functionality with Dual band 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi which has come from the top-end ASUS router technology.


    ASUS Zenbook is known for its 2 second instant resume, a feature that can be attributed to its intelligent power management and extreme efficiency. It can also stay in standby for up to two weeks with the security of automatic file backup to prevent data loss. Moreover, this PRIME model also has a great battery backup. Compared to many other models in its class, it offers a considerably longer battery life. To accomplish this, ASUS utilizes two distinctive operating modes that can be alternated instantly i.e. performance mode with high demand applications and power saving mode during common tasks.


    This notebook sports a vibrant, full HD 1080p IPS panel that brings visuals to awe-inspiring life with 350cd/m2 brightness and 800:1 contrast. It is also equipped with anti-glaring materials that reduce distracting reflections and finger prints, while you can enjoy the 178 degrees viewing angle which means that image and colors won’t be distorted even in the least optimal viewing conditions. The built in HD camera is amazing as well for all your face-to-face conversations through Skype, Hangouts or similar programs.


    ASUS SonicMaster Technology helps achieve incredible sound which is yet another added feature. In association with audio experts Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, the ZENbook features the most talked about Sonic Master technology and brings a compelling sound experience with exceptional clarity, volume, resonance and more detailed sound reproduction (though some users will probably not abandon their quality speakers). The only drawback is that the lid, although appealing, is prone to scratches. Many users also might find the touch pad a little large and bulky. Overall however, the ASUS Zen Book PRIME UX31A-DH71 i7-3517U is a great acquisition.
