Asus Zenbook UX32VD-R3001V Ultrabook

The Asus Zenbook UX32VD-R3001V is the lower cost variant of the Asus Zenbook line. This 13.3-inch laptop cuts cost by using a lower resolution (1366 x 768) display, a hybrid drive instead of a solid state drive (SSD). A hybrid drive is a conventional mated with a small SSD. The SSD is used to speed up some functions, like resuming from sleep. Some users would probably prefer the larger 500 GB storage of the Asus Zenbook UX32VD-R3001V, as opposed to the 256 GB SSD storage of the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-R4003V.

It comes with the Intel Core i5-3317U processor and 4 GB of RAM we see in most Ultrabooks these days. A bit of a surprise is that this Ultrabook comes with discrete graphics, a NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M graphics card, with 1 GB of RAM. 

Being an Ivy Bridge system, you get all the expected ports and slots, with a USB 3.0, HDMI out, Bluetooth 4.0 and a SD card slot. The Asus Zenbook UX32VD-R3001V also sports a back-lit keyboard. 

Physically the Asus Zenbook UX32VD-R3001V is identical to the higher end Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-R4003V. Because of the use of a conventional hard drive, the Asus Zenbook UX32 is a bit thicker than the UX31A, but both are still just 0.7-inches thick at the thickest point. The conventional drive also makes the Asus Zenbook UX32 a bit heavier, at 3.2 pounds, compared to the 2.9 pounds of the UX31A.

The cost cutting brings the price of the Asus Zenbook UX32VD-R3001V to Php59,990. That is all 10K cheaper than the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-R4003V.
