Breaking: Asus Zenbook Ultrabook launching today!
We’re here today at Miniloc Island in El Nido for the launching of the Asus Zenbook in the Philippines. The official program will start this evening but we got some early whispers about the retail price.
Both the Asus UX21 and the UX31 will be revealed to the media later today and, so far, all we got are the suggested retail prices for the two.
The Asus Zenbook UX21 will come with an Intel Core i5 2467M 1.6GHz, 4GB DDR3 RAM and 128GB SSD while the Asus Zenbook UX31 will come with an Intel Core i5 2557M 1.7GHz, 4GB DDR3 RAM and 128GB SSD.
Suggested retail price:
Asus UX21: Php53,995
Asus UX31: Php59,995
Will follow-up with complete specs (there are a number of variants but I am told only one specs per size will be shipped in) as well as release dates in a while.
I brought with me my Macbook Air and Aspire S3 so we can do a side-by-side comparison.
Asus is set to release the units in local stores by end of November.
Updated: Here are more hands-on and photo comparisons.
