2:18 /

Stuck between a budget model and a high-end, feature-filled model, this middle Asus Zenbook is a slim, slick ultrabook, but also a tough sell.

I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the is this is -- netbook UX 318. Now we've already look at a couple of these -- -- laptop's UX 32 models. Those are a little bit thicker actually either either less expensive and kind of more budget ultra books or. They're more expensive and half core I seven processors and -- -- graphics cards. On this model stripped out some of that stuff keeps some of those high end extras. Obligates it to and a thinner body making it public most of -- idealized ultra book like. Of the current and books -- with a thinner body in this particular case. For about that tend fifty me via 11100 dollars. He and Intel Core I five CPU seems reasonable -- but you also get a full 1920 by 1080 display -- that's a nice high -- -- A thirteen inch flat at you don't see too often some believe -- that's too high residency kind of hard. Red screen possible I you don't get the discrete graphics and assigned one of these slightly slightly thicker you have 32 models -- -- in this case you just have the basic Intel. HD 4000 graphics and that's fine for basic act casual game playing may be some older games as if you -- the resolution down a little bit. I find the front edge of these books to be a little bit -- and put that. You'll see your hand -- that kind of cut into -- just a little bit. I keyboard I always think is great but the touchpad. To hair. I had to -- responsive compared to either -- -- may be the very best. Windows ultra books you do get two USB three point oh ports but because the bodies just a little bit thinner your video outputs. You have VGA and HDMI are relegated to sort of little mini display adapter plugs if the plug in external dongle into them. In order to get video out. Now -- and booking a less expensive and gets in -- PUX 3280. Which is under thousand dollars yet more expensive. -- -- in the QX 32 VD which evolved through review which is really nice has a hybrid screen. And discrete graphics that's about to 12100 dollars or you can not a hundred bucks or so off of for the bit more than a thousand and get this guy and -- a couple of millimeters off. On that is the things -- -- UX 318.
