The Asus Zenbook was the first "ultrabook" on the market and has stood up as the closest thing to a "MacBook Air killer." The Zenbook has very similar specs to the MacBook Air, but for $250 less. It is also just as sleek in appearance with a smooth aluminum lid and all-metal chassis, high-resolution display and audio provided by Bang & Olufsen.
