The ASUS ZenBook UX32 is a recommendable Ultrabook; it has the right mix of quality and features. The display is pleasantly of good quality despite having just a 1366×768 resolution; the keyboard has the best feel of any Ultrabook we’ve tried and the touchpad is excellent; it even has decent speakers. One area where this notebook could improve is in performance; the included hard drive/small SSD combo while innovative (most Ultrabooks have limited storage space since they only have SSDs) is slow and the UX32 like most Ultrabooks can’t be upgraded.

Other than the hard drive we find little to dislike about the UX32. ASUS Zenbook Primes are available with better displays and different storage solutions; things can only get better from our review unit.


  • Better than average display
  • Good keyboard and touchpad
  • Nice speakers
  • Solid build quality


  • Slow hard drive
