Asus used a relatively low-key press event in Taipei to introduce the world to a pair of new Zenbook models built around Intel's recently launched Ivy Bridge platform. The first of the two Ultrabooks is the Zenbook UX32A , an $800 machine with integrated graphics. For $300 more, the UX32Vd ups the pixel pushing ante with a GeForce GT 620M GPU with 1GB of onboard memory.
According to Netbooknews.com , which attended the event and snapped a handful of photos, both the $800 UX32A and $1,100 UX32Vd are 13.3-inch Ultrabooks with a handful of premium upgrade options, such as a Full HD 1080p IPS (In-Plane Switching) display, Intel WiDi technology, and dedicated SSD options rather than the stock 500GB hard drive + 24GB SSD cache.
Both models come equipped with either 2GB or 4GB of RAM. According to DigiTimes , the UX32Vd rocks an Intel Core i5 3317U processor, which likely serves as the foundation of the UX32A as well.
