The ASUS ZENBOOK makes a good thing even better with the addition of the Intel Core i5-3317U processor and a backlit keyboard to its innovative UX31 notebook series. This 13.3-inch UX31A version is still a razor-thin 0.70 inches thick, weighs less than three pounds, and features an all-metal unibody design that's as light as it is durable.
- Intel Core i5-3317U processor delivers faster system performance, uses less power, and enables sharper graphics
- Updated Backlit keyboard has comfortable overall feel, shorter key travel, and more responsive trackpad
- Connectivity includes Micro HDMI and two USB 3.0 ports that let you charge devices and download data 10 times faster than USB 2.0
ASUS is noted for its elegant design, and nowhere is that more evident than in its UX Series. The ZENBOOK UX31A is a definite looker, built with a needle-thin and feather-light aluminum unibody frame that features a unique "spun" finish on its polished metal surfaces. Add in a battery life of up to six hours, and this is one laptop you'll be glad to take wherever you're headed.
The UX31A is powered by The Intel Core i5-3317U processor for some of the fastest and most powerful notebook performance to date. Intel HD Graphics 4000 are integrated on the processor and bring the 13.3-inch HD+ display to vibrant life--movies, videos, photos, web content, and more are delivered in sharp and crisp detail. There's also a 128 GB solid state drive that enables faster boot-up times, quicker application launching, and a more durable storage solution than standard hard-disk drives since it has no moving parts. The UX31A also delivers first-rate audio with Bang & Olufsen's renowned ICEpower, which delivers deep bass and clear, natural sound with less background noise.

Limited at home use
great refurb, basicley new
I use this laptop to study, listen to music and watch movies /shows, and play games like league of legends and maplestory
Great value and amazingly thin
from Greenville, SC
If thin is what you are looking for, this hits the spot. As a Windows 7 machine, the price is hard to beat for the specs included. Compared to the higher priced ultrabooks, the screen probably isn't as nice and the processor is quickly becoming outdated. However, performance is great with a quick boot and quiet operation.
Wouldn't start up

THE COMPUTER: Upon arrival, it didn't work. I had to send it back to Asus for repairs before I'd even gotten it up and running. Thankfully, it comes with a 90-day warranty, but it has been quite a hassle.
