Short conclusion: Asus has had to make some sacrifices to get the UX32A to this price point, but it's still worth every penny. Consider this, seriously, for your highly portable productivity companion on the go.

Preface:

I have been interested in getting a thin and light laptop as a productivity companion on the go, when I'm away from my main machine at home. I had tried Asus' own Transformer Prime, that was an Android tablet with a keyboard dock, providing the capability for productivity while also giving the "play" aspects of a tablet. However, this did not prove too fruitful, as many productivity applications on there functioned slowly or we're just not as full featured as I needed them to be. So my return to Windows on a proper laptop came about. And my purchasing decision lands on the UX32A, the stripped back version of the full-on UX31A (AKA the Zenbook Prime).

Design:

Asus have a very good design team (though one could argue Apple are their largest influence). In the UX32A they have designed a beautiful, solid piece of work. The silver aluminium contrasted by black chiclet keys is certainly reminiscent of the Mac Book line of products, however the aluminium itself is vertically brushed instead of a matted feel that Apple's line gives. This actually gives a much cleaner look, as well as reinforcing the industrial design. The lid is a more contrasting gun-metal/grey hue that is once again brushed aluminium, however it is orbitally brushed instead of in a straight line. This gives any light bouncing off the lid an interesting circular style reflection. The ASUS logo can be found on both the center of the lid, and centrally positioned underneath the screen, facing the user. This is in an unbrushed, polished metal.

I was eyeing up the UX31A but deemed it too expensive and with image and text size issues due to the high (but not quite high enough!) resolution screen, I chose the cheaper option, the UX32A. The build quality is identical and feels very premium! There is no flex of any note in the casing, and it looks very aesthetically pleasing as any good Mac-clone should! The backlit keys are nice.

This laptop is a dream to use! It feels like a Macbook Air but with Windows instead of IOS! Just what I was looking for. The battery life, screen contrast and brightness are fantastic! The keyboard is very pleasurable to type on, with good size keys, good travel and nice surfaces and sound. The touchpad is excellently sized with a nice smooth surface and lovely drivers to produce mac-like smooth two-finger scrolling, two-finger tapping for right click etc. More control over the touchpad functions would be nice, however. Maybe future drivers will provide! The instant-on feature is nice to have but as the small SSD is only used for caching, is not quite as quick as advertised, but is quick nonetheless. The speakers give great boom for their buck considering the size of the laptop, perfect for watching movies or television from under 10 feet away.

The lack of SSD-only storage does irk at times when the constant albeit quiet clicking of the computer caching the HDD data onto the SSD makes noise during quiet times. This, however, is not a problem considering the lack of SSD is reflected in the price. Otherwise the bloatware is a minor inconvenience, but can be sorted with effort. Rather annoying is now when the non-Asus sleep mode is used, the touchpad's extra functions such as two-finger scrolling and three-finger swipes are not always reactivated on wake-up.

Generally, I have been very impressed with this. Aside from the touchpad which is lacking and for some reason loses its extra gestures such as scrolling after waking from sleep (fixable in task scheduler by ending and re-launching AsusTPCenter.exe with a logon trigger), the physical aspects of the laptop, ie. size, weight, keyboard, screen and overall design are great, and I've not noticed any loud fan noise except on shut down.

I was disappointed in the overall speed, especially the boot and wake up times, until I came across an article (link below) that explained that the software behind the ssd caching and and InstantOn isn't actually enabled by default (for some stupid reason). This was simple to rectify and the boot times are now as quick as they should be.

Verified Purchase
I spent almost a month extensively researching laptops before deciding to buy the UX32A. There are many superficial reviews out there (techradar, expertreviews and whatnot). Then there are a couple of superb, detailed review sites from which you will really learn what makes a good laptop: notebookcheck and anandtech. I would suggest to anyone looking at buying this (or any) laptop to read the reviews on these two sites.

Now to my own experience from having bought this machine 3 weeks ago:

It is light, fast, has a lovely backlit keyboard, a very robust sleep/hibernate function and power options that ensure battery is well conserved. The best part (and unlike the macbook air and many many other ultrabooks out there) the RAM can be upgraded (from the current 4GB upto a maximum of 10GB) and the hard disk can be upgraded (from the 500GB 'traditional' hard disk to a fast SSD of upto 500GB and probably 1TB in the future). Unlike many people (esp on amazon.com) who have immediately upgraded I haven't, because I find this machine is fast enough as it is. I am a light user doing browsing, word processing, playing music and movies, and after my 5 yo netbook this thing is super quick.
