The Asus Zenbook UX31E is an excellent-looking Windows Ultrabook laptop that matches the MacBook Air step for step with an even better price. Fans of great audio, high-resolution screens and lots of ports will be happy; keyboard/touch pad aficionados will be disappointed.
In this edition of CNET Prizefight, we compare Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air with the suspiciously similar (but less expensive) Asus Zenbook UX31.
It's a Prizefight punchout between the two best-looking laptops on the planet, which look a lot like each other. Will the feature-packed Asus Zenbook have what it takes to take out the MacBook Air, the reigning champ? Let's get it on!
Asus made an ultrabook that's just about as thin and stylish as a MacBook Air, but manages to be less expensive. Could that make it the perfect Apple-alternative Windows laptop? The Zenbook gets awfully close.
The two new Ultrabook models are the 11.6-inch UX21 and the 13.3-inch UX31, both part of the Zenbook series.
