We have recently heard from the Commercial Times, who claim that according to the suppliers sources, Asis are aiming to price the Asus UX21 at 80 to 90% of the MacBook Air family. This should bring the UX21 to market at less than $1,000, a decent price for such an impressive ultra portable.
The Asus UX21 is powered by the new second generation Intel Core i5 processor (or i7), which gives it a vast power advantage over the MacBook Air. While the 17mm thin laptop has the last aluminum-encased case, with it’s cheaper price, and extra power we’re quite sure that the Asus UX21 will be a very popular laptop.
If you’re looking for something a little larger than a netbook, and want a powerful machine, but don’t want to carry around a large and heavy 15-inch machine, the 11.6-inch, 17mm think UX21 should be perfect.
Update: The Asus UX21E is now available from $999.
