==== ==== Advice on the perfect Ultrabook From JPComputewrSolutions Guru ==== ====

In order to keep up with the new trend Asus gives us something called Asus UX21 Ultrabook, an ultra-portable laptop designed to meet Intel's latest big idea (the Ultrabook). Made entirely out of polished aluminum, weighing only 2.4lb/1.1kg and having 0.66 inches/17 mm as maximum thickness, you can consider this a very thin and light device. Some of us will be very happy to find out that you can have the UX21 in an 11.6" display, that's because almost all the Ultrabooks have a 13.3" display, Asus also made an almost identical 13.3" version of the UX21 called Asus UX31 Ultrabook. Once you open the UX21 you'll be able to see the 11.6" glossy display with a 1366Ăƒâ€”768 resolution, a keyboard with full metal keys and a trackpad made out of glass that turns out to be a clickpad. Unfortunately a very important feature is missing, there is no webcam and this could be a big downside for some of the people who'll intend to buy it. When it comes to connectivity, you get a micro HDMI port, a USB 3.0 and a power jack, all this could be found on the right side, the rest of ports are on the left side, there is a 3.5 mm audio jack, an other USB 3.0 and a VGA socket that requires an adapter in order to work, that doesn't seems very practical and many said that a normal VGA port would have been better, but in the end what can you ask from 0.66 inches of maximum thickness. The Asus UX21 Ultrabook may look small and innocent but don't get fooled by the appearances, in a maximum configuration you'll get the new Intel i7 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB SATA III SSD of storage, you can also chose an i3 or an i5 as a processor. Asus says that the UX21 will resume from sleep mode in just 2 seconds and the integrated battery will have autonomy of 7 hours but if you keep the Ultrabook in sleep mode the battery will last up to 7 days. Asus released the UX21 in late September and if you want to buy it, the base model cost 999 dollars on (the basic So with the Asus UX21 Ultrabook you definitely won't get embarrassed but is it the best Ultrabook out there? Well it has very good build quality, you can really feel that every piece is well connected to the other one and it has USB 3.0 connectivity and an i7 processor, but is let down by an imprecise trackpad, keys with no feel and high operating temperatures (noise is not a problem though). Until then the best Ultrabook still remains the MacBook Air, Apple's first attempt at a slim and light laptop, now refined with the second generation Intel Core iX processors. If you want the best Ultrabook get the MacBook Air, but make sure you save a few hundred dollars more.
