ASUS Zenbook UX51VZ
Read Full Review
The Zenbook Prime UX51Vz is easily the most powerful Ultrabook available, but underwhelming battery life -- and a sky-high price tag -- temper our enthusiasm somewhat.

Sadly, its lack of touchscreen means it's not the ideal machine for properly taking advantage of Windows 8, and it's extremely expensive.TechRadar60Asus Zenbook U500 reviewThis is a beautiful and powerful laptop, but the main problem with the U500 is its price tag.Digital Trends100ASUS Zenbook UX51Vz ReviewMost laptops, even expensive ones, require a sacrifice here or there. This laptop requires none. It’s closer to perfect than any laptop we’ve ever reviewed. The Zenbook UX51V is a masterpiece very much worth its price.Notebookcheck90Review Asus Zenbook UX51VZ (U500VZ) NotebookWhile the Zenbook manages to get many things right, we still think that the MacBook [Pro 15 Retina] has a slight edge in quite a few disciplines. ... Overall, we think the UX51VZ has earned its rating - we can definitely recommend this notebook.
- 100AVERAGE USER SCORE1 ReviewsEngadget Reader100July 26, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I'm not sure how this Asus laptop is getting bad reviews. Maybe if you're taking windows 8 into the mix, otherwise , this is an awesome laptop. The reviews say it's too expensive, and yet these are the same ones that would gladly shell out $500 more for a macbook pro. This type of false reviews is mainly from the US media pumping up apple for the ad revenue. They should be ashamed. Read reviews from non-US media and you'll get the real deal on this laptop.I wiped windows8 to run Ubuntu and this laptop is fast! I don't really need the touch interface for this laptop, but will like try to set this up at some point. Previously, I was using a 14" dell latitude with an ssd , so the display was a great upgrade. The quad-core processor and the graphics card do well for watching netflix. For my programming work, I also use this more than the average user and this asus just hums along. I don't really game , so I have no idea how this holds up.Overall, I give this a 9.8 out of 10. I would highly recommend this for other software developers and other intensive PC users.
