The unit weighs 2.87 lbs. and features powerful integrated HD 4000 graphics, a 256GB SSD, built-in HD webcam, and a backlit, Chiclet-style keyboard.
The notebook resumes from sleep mode in two seconds and can sustain extended standby periods bolstered by special safeguards to prevent data loss.
The trackpad is vastly-improved, and the lid opens easily, making the unit a worthy challenger to the benchmark by which all ultrabooks are measured, Apple's MacBook Air.
The ASUS Zenbook Prime (Model UXA31-DB71) retails for $1,499.99. For more information, visit ASUS.com.
