Ultrabook Review Asus Zenbook UX32LN: description, specifications and reviews

Portable mobile device Asus Zenbook UX32LN, presented recently by the Taiwanese giant, immediately attracted the attention of many potential buyers. Great design, high performance, functional and a decent price (50 000 rubles) clearly contribute to the fact that this laptop will be the best purchase in the business class for many Russians. The description, characteristics and feedback of owners of this wonderful device will allow to get acquainted with the novelty in this article.

First acquaintance with Asus Zenbook UX32LN

The appearance of the box can cause resentment of the buyer - the usual cardboard with the manufacturer's logo does not match the price of the gadget. However, all doubts disappear when, opening the package, the user will find in it another box, made in black with a purple tint. On the main screen packaging flaunts notebook Asus Zenbook UX32LN. Description of the technical characteristics can be found on one side of the colorful box.

The kit is decent: the gadget itself, a laptop case, a charger, documentation, a pair of adapters and a cover for them. Notebook bag can not be purchased, the quality of manufacturing covers at height - they are made of a very durable and sufficiently dense material that protects the mobile device from external factors.

Appearance and build quality

It is worth noting that the ultrabook Asus Zenbook UX32LN looks very stylish, as befits all representatives of the business class. The case is very thin, all its edges are rounded, and there are no complaints about the quality of the workmanship. To make the case, the manufacturer used plastic, only the top cover has a thin metal coating on top. During the visual inspection, the owner will not find any defects or gaps, everything is adjusted perfectly.

There are questions to the screen hinges - they work very hard. One hand can not open the laptop. On the other hand, strong resistance allows you to keep the gadget cover from any angle, which is quite handy when watching video content outside the workplace (for example, in bed).

The most important component

The screen on the laptop Asus Zenbook UX32LN 90NB0521 causes admiration of others. This gadget is one of the few representatives of the business class that has the benchmark characteristics of a 13-inch display of a modern mobile device. An IPS matrix with a matte coating is installed - the concept of "glare in the sun" is inappropriate here, the user will never see them, even on a bright sunny day. The screen resolution is 1920x1080 dots per inch (FullHD).

The color rendition of the LCD screen can be envied by all competitors. Halftones and shades are transmitted impeccably. What exactly is a black color and its hues - in the test programs, the user will not find the gray spots on the borders of the transition. This notebook will definitely be interesting for designers and creative personalities, whose work is connected with graphic editors and video content.

Wonderful acoustics

ASUS Corporation decided to remove all competitors on the market of mobile devices from the shelves, providing its professional audio system with its Asus Zenbook UX32LN. Reviews in the media about the gadget begin with narrations about acoustics in the laptop. The sound system from the world famous brand Bang & Olufsen causes only positive emotions. Two speakers of the same company in the laptop sound better than the budget system 2.1. Accordingly, you do not need to purchase columns for the gadget.

The proprietary utility of ASUS company allows to make fine tuning of a sound under an environment. Equalizer program allows you to choose the sound for you. Confuses only the increase in volume over 80% - the case of the laptop with its rattling strongly distorts the sound. It is not clear why the manufacturer did not make any restrictions on the volume adjustment, because this defect could not be missed at the plant by the technologists.

Interfaces and connectors

The mobile device Asus Zenbook UX32LN does not have a built-in DVD-drive, it simply does not have a place in the ultra-slim case, however the manufacturer could worry about users and equip the gadget with an external device. On the left side of the laptop is only one USB 3.0 port and a multi-format card reader. The right panel contains a connector for connecting the power adapter, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI digital video output, an analogue output for Mini-VGA video and a stereo headphone output. The front and back panels do not have interfaces.

Do not forget about the adapters that are included in the kit. One device is presented as a portable network card with an RJ-45-USB connector for connection to a wired computer network. The second device is connected to the mini-VGA port and has a D-Sub video output. Owners of the laptop have reacted positively to such decision of the manufacturer, judging by their reviews in the media.

Gadget Performance

On the market you can find several modifications of this mobile device. They differ only in processors and the amount of installed RAM. So, the gadget Asus Zenbook UX32LN 90NB0521 M01630 has the most powerful complete set (processor Intel Core i7 and 8 GB of RAM). The other models are based on Intel Core i5 and have 4-8 GB of RAM.

The video subsystem for all devices is the same - a discrete Nvidia Geforce 840M video adapter with two gigabytes of onboard memory, and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 video chip. Fans of dynamic games will certainly like this manufacturer's decision.

A weak link in performance is the hard drive. The manufacturer installed a Hitachi HDD magnetic drive with a capacity of one terabyte. The spindle rotation speed is limited to 5400 rpm and there is no question of high data transfer. Solve the problem with the performance of the system by installing SSD-drive. Judging by the numerous reviews of owners, the speed of the laptop, as shown by the tests, increases by 2-2.5 times.

Keyboard and Touchpad

The input device is executed soundly in the laptop Asus Zenbook UX32LN. The review of the keyboard showed that all the buttons are very conveniently pressed, have a short stroke and a touch is palpable. All keys on the panel are separate from each other, which eliminates accidental pressing. Negative one - there is no digital block, although a 13-inch device could easily accommodate it. Instead, the manufacturer made an attempt to place the numbers on the function keys, which are painted in the same color as the letters of the Cyrillic alphabet with the Latin alphabet. As a result, there was a complete mess, in which it is very difficult to navigate unprepared users.

The touchpad is huge and very comfortable. First of all, it supports a full multitouch. In addition to scrolling, rotating and zooming, the user is given the opportunity to work with all sorts of gestures implemented in the Windows operating system 10. The surface of the touchpad is matte, which eliminates accidental touches and "ghostly presses" when dust accumulates on the surface.

Wireless interfaces

I am glad that the manufacturer did not become greedy and entrusted the work of wireless data transmission in the ultrabook Asus Zenbook UX32LN (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) to the well-known brand Qualcomm Atheros. In addition to the chipset, wireless interfaces run on branded drivers of a well-known brand and are controlled by its utilities. The advantage for the user is that the flexible configuration of the Qualcomm Atheros program allows you to set the parameters for the operation of wireless networks: the level and power of the signal, the inclusion of an access point on the mobile device, and similar functionality.

Quite interesting manufacturer approached the technology of Bluetooth 4.0. To manage this interface, a whole package of utilities has been created: data transfer, modem, synchronization with other mobile devices - everything has its own control menu, which independently finds the necessary drivers and provides full operation with all devices (including remote management).

Mobility of work

The capacity of the battery is 6350 ampere hours. It is made using the technology "lithium-polymer" and allows you to work continuously for about 8 hours. However, the stated time extends to work with the documentation, when the discrete video adapter and wireless interfaces are not active. In the usual mode, the gadget Asus Zenbook UX32LN will last no more than 3 hours on a single charge.

Confuses only the power supply of the charger. It is very hot when connected to an electrical network. Many users in their reviews recommend to de-energize it after charging the laptop, since it is possible to overheat the internal components of the power supply. Although, according to official statements of the manufacturer, such heating of the charger is considered normal and does not fall under the warranty replacement.


With such great features, the Asus Zenbook UX32LN has a future in the markets of our country. The manufacturer has managed, varying between a decent price and performance, to achieve an excellent result. The gadget can safely go beyond the business class and make even demanding customers happy with their work.
