We love it when the trade shows roll around because that's when companies show off their upcoming products. Not all of them turn out to be winners, of course, but Asus's UX21 ultrathin notebook being shown off at Computex holds a lot of promise. From the pictures we've seen, it's sleek and sexy, and the Core i7 foundation is just icing on the cake.
The UX21 measures 17mm at its thickest point and weighs just 2.4 pounds. It's what you can expect from Asus's UX Series of ultraportables, which Asus said "are made possible through the use of a strong but light aluminum alloy shell with a unique 'spun' finish on polished surfaces."
Asus was short on specs in its press release , but did say that the UX21 is built around Intel's second generation Core processors (up to Core i7), SATA 6Gb/s SSD drives, an oversized keyboard, and smartphone-like touchpad. According to Engadget , the UX21 also sports USB 3.0 connectivity and has the ability to hibernate for up to a full week.
Look for the UX21 to ship sometime in September.
