ASUS Zenbook UX31 Series unboxing

The hottest laptop in the market has arrived, and it looks just like a MacBook Air

  • Here it is assembled.

  • It comes with a classy little sleeve for protection.

  • The front of the Zenbook tapers to produce a sharp-looking edge. It's a very thin edge -- about 3mm.

  • These are the little adapter that come in the package.

  • You also get some documentation telling you how to restore the system or create a system backup, as well as a cable tie.

  • The power adapter is tiny (about 6cm high and wide) and it doesn't take up much room on a power board.

  • Because the Zenbook is so thin, it doesn't have a lot of ports built in to it. The left side has one USB 2.0 port, a headphone port and an SD card slot.

  • Take this sleeve out and you'll be greeted by the spun-patterned aluminium finish of the Zenbook -- and it looks fantastic.

  • The right side has a USB 3.0 port, a micro-HDMI port and a little square port that is used to connect the extra adapters that are included in the package.

  • The rear is a little thicker at around 18mm.

  • You get a VGA adapter...

  • The package opens up to reveal nothing much but a document sleeve.

  • and a Gigabit Ethernet adapter. We would love it if it also shipped with an adapter that produced a full-sized HDMI port.

  • It's a pattern that really makes the notebook stand out, which is a good thing because apart from that it looks almost identical to the MacBook Air.

  • The ASUS Zenbook UX31 Series Ultrabook is the talk of the town right now as far as Windows-based laptops are concerned.

    It's a super-thin, and very well built 13in ultraportable that features an Intel Core i7 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive. There are lesser models in the range, but this is the one we've been blessed to test. It costs $1999.
