Computex 2011 has gone off to a flying start and some truly innovative products have launched this year. ASUS have already announced the innovative Padfone this year along with a number of other interesting products. Their announcements haven’t stopped, and the company has launched the UX21 laptop codenamed Ultrabook.
Extremely thin and lightweight Ultrabook
The UX21 is clad in an aluminum alloy shell that has a unique 'spun' finish. The UX Series has a number of impressive features, including 2nd generation Intel Core mobile processors and the powerful i7. ASUS claims that the Ultrabook has up to a 7-hour battery charge and an Instant-On feature where the laptop can resume in 2 seconds from sleep mode. At its thickest, the ASUS UX21 is a mere 17mm and weighs 1,100g. Further to this the laptop also features a SATA III SSD and USB 3.0 connectivity.
Sean Maloney, Intel’s Corporation Executive Vice President speaking about the Ultrabook at Computex said that the performance and capabilities of today’s laptops have tablet-like features and deliver a highly responsive and secure experience, in a thin, light and elegant design. The ASUS UX21 Ultrabook is expected to be launched by September and with its slim design and impressive attributes we are sure it will pose some worthy competition for the MacBook Air.
