The Asus Zenbook UX21E is thinner, lighter and much more fun to use than I thought possible for an 11in notebook. Built to last and to impress, it manages to look amazing and cute at the same time. If the viewing angle on the display had been a few...

Despite a valiant effort, the firm's latest offering isn't quite a MacBook killer. The UX21E Zenbook is a smaller version of the Asus UX31E Zenbook in design, performance and build quality. For the most part this is a positive, but it also means...

Fluently designed, Zenbook needs no introduction when we the subject is ultra-books. The build and form factor is as good as Apple’s MacBook air 13, which is seen as the epitome of ultra-slim and quality combined. The Zenbook isn’t just as...

The UX21E is slightly disappointing. While the MacBook Air 11.6-inch is a bit more expensive, it also has a longer battery life, is more powerful and has a better quality screen, webcam, keyboard and audio section. While the UX31E – 13-3-inch...

Frankly, we all laughed when we heard Intel’s price targets for ultrabooks. In theory ultrabooks are simply MacBook Air clones manufactured by Intel partners that are not as experienced with ultrathin and light machines as Apple. Well, the UX 21...

For so much promise, the ZenBook UX21 falls tragically short at one of the most important factors: human interaction. The touchpad, screen and keyboard make this one product you'll want to pass by — no matter how pretty it...

The Asus Zenbook is a worthy premium notebook in many ways. Performance, weight, and form factor are great, the keyboard is fine, and the Zenbook has a sufficient number of ports. Even better, the Zenbook models beat the MacBook Airs on price. The...
