The machines are smaller and very thin but are more like full notebooks than netbooks with slower processors and less powerful hardware.

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A Touch hands-on

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A Touch hands-on

ASUS' Computex 2012 range may have err'd on the odd side so far, but the new Zenbook Prime UX21A Touch is an ultrabook with far more mass-market appeal despite delivering finger-friendly Windows 8. Taking the original Zenbook Prime from earlier this year, and slotting in a capacitive touchscreen on top of the Full HD display, it eschews crazy hinges and odd form-factors for a more straightforward boost in functionality.
