In addition to bringing the UX21A and UX31A, the upcoming Zenbook series update is set to see the arrival of two more ultrabooks, the UX32A and UX32Vd. Set to cost between $800 and $1,100, these 'budget-minded' ultrabooks are 18.3 mm thick, they weight 1.45 kg, and feature a 13.3-inch (HD or optionally, Full HD IPS), display, 2/4 GB of RAM, a 500 GB hard drive backed by a 24 GB SSD (for some caching fun), and a low-voltage Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge (1.8 GHz Core i3-3217U, 2.4 GHz Core i5-3317U or 2.8 GHz Core i7-3517U) processor.

1080p IPS panel, Ivy Bridge with HD4000 graphics, and a 500 GB HDD with a 20GB cache, all for $1100 or less? I'm going to buy the shit out of this.

As a previous owner of the original UX31, I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye out for these. I really hope they integrate a nicer keyboard this time.

Looks like the 1080p 13" Zenbook is my next laptop. The thing I hate most about my current laptop is its crappy glossy tn-panel. Let's just hope the IPS panel option doesn't mean +500$ price tag.

Also an SSD is a must, mechanical hdd is just a disaster waiting to happen in this form factor.
