ASUS ROG notebooks get nod of approval from random gamer for high FPS

BlizzCon 2011 - We are back at the ASUS booth from BlizzCon 2011 again for a look at some more ROG products and this time we look at some of the gaming notebooks which were on display at the show.

 

 

While it may look a little staged, we ran into a completely random gamer who wasn't shy and he had a few words to say about the ASUS ROG G53 notebook he was using. All of the laptops that were on display were running World of Warcraft at high quality settings. I quizzed the gamer on what he thought about the G53 and he said that he "cannot argue with 60 FPS on a laptop". Hell yeah.

 

And he knows exactly what he is doing! Thank you good sir for being on video, if you ever see this.

ASUS UX21, UX31 ultrabooks will be here tomorrow, start from $999

ASUS have stayed true to their word of an Ultrabook release in October, with the new Zenbook brand. Five new models will debut ranging in price from $999 to $1499. First up we have the Zenbook UX21 which is an 11.6-inch (1366x768) config, sporting 128GB of SSD and either a Core i5-2467M or Core i7-2677M whilst the Zenbook UX31 sports a 13.3-inch (1600x900) display and comes in three flavors: a Core i5-2557M model with 128GB of SSD, a similar model with the SSD pumped up to 256GB and the final model, including a Core i7-2677M.

 

The 11.6-inch Zenbook UX21 and 13.3-inch Zenbook UX31 weigh just 2.4 and 2.9 pounds, respectively. This os thanks to their aluminum alloy bodies, glass trackpads and all-metal keyboards. Not only that but they look absolutely gorgeous. The 11.6-inch UX21 ranges in thickness from 0.11-inch at the front, to 0.67-inch at the rear with the 13.3-inch packing more in the trunk with the same 0.11-inch front but a 0.71-inch rear.

All Zenbooks feature an instant-on feature that ASUS say will allow the Zenbook to resume from sleep in just two seconds. Battery life we have the UX21 rated for five hours of run time, sporting 7 days of standby time. The UX31 on the other hand lasts a tad longer, at seven hours of runtime or ten days standby from a single charge.

RumorTT: Ultrabooks to sport 2560x1400 HD panels?

RumorTT is back! RumorTT was taking a holiday on a Jamaican beach, sipping cocktails and sunbathing all day - because, its a boss and a ladies man. But, RumorTT is back into full swing with a pretty juicy rumor that Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks might sport 2560x1400 displays. This would be a huge gain for users who work with photographs, documents or many windows all at once. During last months IDF, there were a bunch of interesting disclosures and strategic directions unveiled, especially when it came to Intel's mobile product expansion.

 

rumortt_ultrabooks_to_sport_2560x1400_hd_panels_67

 

What is the most interesting from that, is that 13.3-inch panels with a resolution of wait for it, 2560x1440 pixels could make their way onto Ultrabook screens by near year. Even the next-gen iPad which is rumored to have a 2048x1536 display is indeed available, but very expensive. With similar pixel density, a 2560x1400 13.3-inch screen would not be cheap, either. If we do see these super high-res panels on Ultrabooks, expect them to be expensive.
