ASUS Zenbook UX32VD Ultrabook to feature NVIDIA graphics, Ivy Bridge CPU

The Zenbook gets beefed up graphics performance along with Hybrid storage

Hot on the heels of the company's Zenbook Prime announcement, ASUS has also announced the Zenbook UX32VD Ultrabook.

The UX32VD is a 13.3in Ultrabook with a third generation Intel Core CPU (formerly codenamed Ivy Bridge), and the distinction between this product and the Zenbook Prime models is in the graphics department: the UX32VD will feature an NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M graphics adapter with 1GB of dedicated RAM, which brings a little more 3D processing power to the fore than Intel's integrated HD 4000 graphics.

Like the Zenbook Prime models, the UX32VD will have an option for a 1920x1080-resolution IPS panel, which can deliver a brightness of 350cd/m2. The standard screen that will ship the UX32VD will have only a 1280x720 resolution. A hybrid storage solution will also be part of the configuration, featuring a hard drive up to 500GB in capacity, along with a 32GB solid state drive for accelerating common tasks.

No word yet as to when the Zenbook UX32VD will be available to buy in Australia.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
