I don't think Zenbook price will drop fast... Even the older model UX31E, cheapest is $1398. The new models coming are more for high-end user, the improved version of UX32VD (Zenbook Prime with dedicated graphic card) but the weight around 1.9kg... Zenbook got touch screen model but price around $2698, the normal one UX31A cheapest is $1598
Honestly marked up lower then can be cheaper la.

anybody experienced high temperatures for their asus laptops? ive had a k43s for about 1.5 years now and it went to the service centre about 3 months ago for a slow/inefficent cooler fan.

Now i recently realised that my computer also still kind of hot, with an average temp of 55 deg for GPU/cores. Strange thing is that the fan seems to be working (i can feel the wind) but its blowing pretty hot air.

when playing games like dota 2 it can reach up to 80 deg which is a little hot for me i feel. I think its got to do with their ice cool design where they try not to conduct heat to the keyboard area so they direct all the heat to the small opening at the side, which may result in higher temperatures.

On a side note, does adding a 2nd screen output to the laptop make it hotter? I recently added an extra monitor so i could view multiple screens at once

maybe the insides are getting dusty so the air circulation not good.

extra screen will increase the stress on the gpu... especially if the screens output different things.

Just wondering if zenbook ux32vd or ux31a is better for my below usage:

-Light gaming (dota 2, etc)
-Programming

If so, which one gives more bang for the buck. Is the i5 model enough?

Hi all,

Recently I just bought S400ca with 12gb ram and i7 processor.
Notice my laptop is quite slow n sometime hanged then recovered.
It happen when I just toggle between Win8 screen n desktop screen or
during viewing multiple web browser.
Also I notice the bootup not really 2sec as it claim (10+sec) though it doesn't bother me...

I just like to know what is happening to my laptop?
Any advise?

Thanks.
