Asus Zenbook UX32VD (Summer 2012): Full Review – Part 2

Friday, July 27th, 2012 3:54:59 by

The tapered design ends at the front into a sharp edge that might work a blade on your hands if you hold the laptop hanging in your hands for too long.

The overall metallic design is quite glossy. I have never been an admirer of shiny body work and parts on any gadget. The Asus Zenbook is the extreme antithesis of my penchant. However, there is a good reason for the metallic finish, most people like it. The whole laptop is like a glossy slab.

The depth of the device has been kept the same but the innards, the high-tech gadgetry, has increased its weight a little bit, 3.3 pounds to be exact. Therefore, with a premium price, you get a nice increase in weight, which will be quite noticeable to those who have used the last iterations before.

The 13-inch screen is nicely fixed into a 12-inch chassis, a trend that has been catching root of late. The keyboard usually pays the toll on this stunt but the Zenbook keyboard has always been a good-size set of buttons.

There is 3 USB 3.0, SD card slot, one HDMI, Mini-VGA, Ethernet via dongle, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth assembled in the new laptop.

On the other hand, the Zenbook is a unibody design akin to the culture in the market. Therefore, forget about replacing the battery if it runs out of juice.

The mouse pad is quite big for a Windows PC however, it still is the weakest suit of the Zenbook, though is quite responsive for most of its competition in the market.


Every non- Apple laptop comes with one operating system, almost one operating system. The Windows 7’s omnipresence in non-Mac device pretty much waives off the question of the software or operating system.

    The UX32VD does NOT have a Mini-Displayport. That is a proprietary Mini-VGA port that only sort of looks like a Mini-Displayport. Check the Asus website for confirmation.

    Why Asus would be so stupid to use an inferior port with no benefit, I don’t know.
