ASUS UX21 Ultrabook Handled on Video

The first Ultrabook, Intel’s new classification for ultra-thin notebooks, ASUS’s UX21 may not hit the market for a few more months, but the company is already showing off its snazzy 11.6-inch laptop at Computex 2011. Our friends at Netbook News were on the scene and managed to snap a photo and grab some hands-on time with the 2.2-pound, .7-inch think ultraportable.

In the video below, you’ll see Sascha from Netbook News hold up the brushed aluminum UX21 and peruse its small selection of ports, which includes two USB 3.0 inputs, a headphone port, and a mini-HDMI out connector. Inside the ASUS UX21 is said to have a Core i3, i5, or i7 CPU along with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SATA 6Gb/s SSD. No word yet on pricing, but the notebook should be out in time for the holidays.

Check out the video below and Netbooks News’ hands-on post for more details on the ASUS UX21.

    Wow, I think the Ultrabook idea is pretty cool, now if you load one of these with a nice cloud based OS, you can make your own improved version of Google’s Chromebook for no added cost like this…
