Retrieved 17 February 2013 from http://www.pcworld.com/article/260628/asus_zenbook_prime_ux31a_review_ultralight_ pretty_and_capable.html This is a detailed editorial review of the Zenbook (interestingly, it notes that the Zenbooks overall performance score is similar to that of the Acer Aspire S5), which offers fairly detailed criticism of the Zenbooks performance and design. The review is helpful because it compares actual performance (battery life, for example) to manufacturer claims. Case, Loyd. Top ultraportable laptops. PCWorld. October 23, 2012.
