Asus Zenbook UX32A and UX32Vd gain latest CPUs

Asus is improving the Zenbook lineup with another pair of aluminium-clad notebooks. A Taipei press event was used to show off the Ivy Bridge-powered UX32A and UX32Vd, with the former relying on Intel integrated graphics and the latter a switchable 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT620M graphics card, according to Netbooknews.

The UX32 series will include options to swap the half-terabyte hard drive for a solid-state drive, either 2GB or 4GB of RAM, and the choice of 13.3-inch matt screens running at 1920x1080 with IPS or 1366x768 with EWV film. The claimed battery life is between six and seven hours.

Release dates have yet to be confirmed, but the devices are expected to arrive around the same time as the company's recently announced notebooks. Expected prices are $1100 with Nvidia graphics, and $800 without.
