Asus Zenbook UX51Vz-DH71 delivers on design and performance
I'm Josh Goldman with CNET and this is a really nice laptop.
It's the Asus Zenbook UX51Vz, a windows 8 laptop for people wanting a well-designed system with high performance components and who are willing to pay for them.
It's priced a little less than $2,000.
But for the money, you get a nice looking aluminum body all around, top, bottom and inside.
A bright 1080p resolution
IPS display with wide viewing angles and some great components including; an Intel Core i7 processor, dual 128 gig SSD, 8 gigs of memory and discreet NVIDIA graphics.
You get a large keyboard with a number pad and responsive touchpad with multi-touch support.
You even get better than average stereo speakers and a small subwoofer to give things a fuller sound.
What you don't get is the touchscreen which
sort of hurts the Windows 8 experience but since it has a very good touchpad, it's not the end of the world.
Its overall performance is also very good including an 11 second boot time and a 2 second resume from sleep.
Batter life with normal use comes in about 5.5 hours, so maybe not all day use but still respectable.
Basically, as I set up top, it's a really nice laptop.
