The ASUS ZENBOOK Prime makes a good thing even better with the addition of a third-generation Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge processor and a backlit keyboard to its innovative UX31 notebook series. This 13.3-inch UX31A version is still a razor-thin 0.70 inches thick, weighs less than three pounds, and features an all-metal unibody design that’s as light as it is durable.

• Backlit keyboard keeps you working and playing after the lights go down-perfect for long flights or late nights in the office
• Updated keyboard has comfortable overall feel, shorter key travel, and more responsive trackpad
• Connectivity includes Micro HDMI and two USB 3.0 ports that let you charge devices and download data 10 times faster than USB 2.0
• Travel case included
ASUS is noted for its elegant design, and nowhere is that more evident than in its UX Series. The ZENBOOK Prime UX31A is a definite looker, built with a needle-thin and feather-light aluminum unibody frame that features a unique “spun” finish on its polished metal surfaces. Add in a battery life of up to six hours*, and this is one laptop you’ll be glad to take wherever you’re headed.
The UX31A is powered by the latest Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge processor for some of the fastest and most powerful notebook performance to date. Intel HD Graphics 4000 are integrated on the processor and bring the 13.3-inch HD+ display to vibrant life-movies, videos, photos, web content, and more are delivered in sharp and crisp detail. There’s also a 128 GB solid state drive that enables faster boot-up times, quicker application launching, and a more durable storage solution than standard hard-disk drives since it has no moving parts. The UX31A also delivers first-rate audio with Bang & Olufsen’s renowned ICEpower, which delivers deep bass and clear, natural sound with less background noise.
