The newest ZENBOOK UX32VD is a generally impressive Ultrabook with plenty of great reasons why you should buy it ... and at least one reason why you might want to pass. The beautiful 1080p IPS display is quite possibly the best screen on any current 13-inch notebook. The dedicated graphics mean you can play modern games or use that additional performance to accelerate graphics-intense applications like Photoshop or video editing software.
Unfortunately, the SSD cache wasn't doing its job very well in our review sample, the battery life wasn't as good as we hoped, and the lack of a built-in Ethernet jack may prove to be a problem if you aren't careful with the included adapter.
In short, if ASUS fixes the SSD cache issue then the UX32VD is quite simply the best Windows-based alternative to the MacBook Air.
