The fresh ultraportable laptop is the Zenbook U500VZ, which is an Intel i7-driven 15” laptop ideal for both productivity & entertainment motives. Apart from the 3rd-generation Ivy Bridge CPU, the ZenBook U500VZ can store up to 512GB of memory space on a super-swift solid state drive. It also comes with optional discrete Nvidia GeForce GT650M graphics for enhanced performance while gaming & several other video apps.
Asus padfone is also touting the Zenbook U500VZ’s styling. The laptop’s body is made from aluminum with an exclusive ‘spun hairline finish’. The thickness is just 19.7mm. The IPS screen churns out vibrant colors & clear visuals at roughly every angle, with the antiglare panel to minimize reflections in very situations. The full size keypad incorporates a numeric keyboard & a backlight that involuntarily amends its brightness level as per the ambient lighting.
The Taiwanese manufacturer further enlarges its lineup of ultra books with the Zenbook Prime UX21A Touch, their first with a multi-touch screen. It is power-driven by an Ivy Bridge CPU & a 256GB SSD, a HD Super IPS+ plus display with a broad 178 degree viewing angle, & also uses supplementary technologies like USB 3.0 & dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi.
Moving on, we also get to see the new Taichi system. It is Power-driven by an Ivy Bridge CPU, Wi-Fi, etc. But, the show-stealer feature is the double-sided screen, which works similar to a standard ultra book when the cover is open, though becomes a multi-touch slate when it’s closed. Since both screens can work separately & concurrently, two people can operate it at simultaneously.
