A viable alternative to the MacBook Air?
Now that Ultrabooks have finally flooded the region, it’s easy to go out and pick up something you like. But don’t let first looks fool you, as every ultrabook looks extremely tempting, and a very budget oriented alternative to Apple’s famous MacBook Air laptops.
In the past we have covered the Acer Aspire S3 as well as the Toshiba Portege Z830, so today I’ll be looking at how the highest-end offering from ASUS stacks up against the rest of the ultrabooks. The Zenbook comes in a very simple case, with a basic assortment of supplies. You get the standard power adapter, with three different plug styles (great for when you’re travelling abroad) and a very sleek looking case sleeve.
This is the first ultrabook I have used with a Core i7 processor, and as such was worried about heat and noise, but the Zenbook pleasantly surprised me there. More on that later, though, let’s take a look at the Zenbook in all its glory.
