New Asus ZenBook Prime Touch looks awesome, and combines slimline design that is extrembly portable with really good desktop level performance
The ZenBook measures a maximum of 11mm thick along the back edge where the screen and keyboard panels hinge together, and tapers to a mere 3mm on the front edge.
Also it weights only 1.3 kilos and that is so balanced that you can easily pick it up and spin it around with one hand as you admire the sleek, metallic design.
The most important thing is improvement with this model is that the 13.3-inch screen now provides touch-sensitive controls for Windows 8.
The top-of-the-range model that we review here also includes an IPS display with 1920x1080 resolution, and a minor – 0.1GHz – speedbump to its Ivy Bridge processor.
The display is really good, and definitely an improvement over its predecessor. The image is beatiful and detailed, with bright, and wide viewing angles that will work well for streaming video, skype, photo-editing, or business presentations or even gaming
For gamers of course most important thing - Performances
New Asus ZenBook Prime have i7 processor from 1.9GHz to 2.0GHz, along with 4GB of memory and 256GB solid-state storage for a £1500
Battery life is 310mins what was impressive 2 years ago, now 310 min is kinda small amount of time but its ok
However, that score isn’t particularly impressive for a laptop costing the best part of £1500.00. Even if the ZenBook can’t stretch to a Haswell processor then you might be entitled to expect a dedicated graphics card.
There's also an older model of Asus ZenBook and he is still on sale that includes an i5 processor and 1600x900 LED display without touch controls for around £1000.00.
