2:02 /

I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the assistance that -- -- X. 32. N eight now this looks familiar that's because you probably just rich source our review of the UX 32 BD. Another I completely identical looking Simpson book from -- news. -- these are part of does that -- lion which is one of the first lines are also -- definitely in 2011. This isn't some of the first -- on it and weigh in and of course like a lot of lines under later ultra books did this stuff looks a lot like a MacBook Air it's a little bit of personality of its own. I'd be interesting thing about taking a look at this current generation -- netbook laptops is -- really run the range. From my sort of low end budget conscious to very high end. Of expensive when dvd that we looked at the other day it's got a 1080. CPU it's got discrete graphics. This version over here you mix 32 AI has about 779 if you shop around maybe you'd find a little bit that cheaper than that. What it has -- is a regular thirteen 66 by 768 screen. It's got a core I three CPU but it's from the previous generation of accomplice in -- chips. So you don't get the improved integrated graphics are better performance and battery life if you do with -- current generation of Intel chips. And it's got a smaller hard drive. And it does not have -- discrete graphics that the more expensive version has no you know when you look at it for 779 -- -- itself. There's a lot of other ultra books -- -- 80900. Dollar price range -- a little bit less. I -- of a lot more choice there however if you really love the look and feel that more expenses and book. This is exactly the same fancy it's got the same USB three point oh ports. So if that's what you're looking for this is a much less expensive way to get it if you don't need. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I've -- accurate and that is the Asus WX 32 page.
