    The UX is supposed to be a whole line up (or so I've read), so there will likely be even bigger models.

    I thought the Ux21 was a 13" laptop until I read more info. This is the laptop I prefer instead of the Ux21, that's more like a netbook.

    so whats the difference between this and the u36 other than the better battery life of u36sd, thicker size of u36 and the dedicated gpu? a bit confused of how the company seems to be dishing out 2 laptops to the same type of 13" market?

    Ux31 is gonna have a slim form factor like the macbook air
    While U36SD is going to be much more performance oriented -- w/o sacrificing much of the svette formfactor;

    The U31 is more budget friendly w/ the thin formfactor too (no optical)
    while U30 is kind of your standard 13.3

    There's a lot of options but they each hit their niche market -- with the first 2 being the on the high end **

    Will it still have the silly 1366x768 res? I know it's an ultra-portable, but a nice screen res would not be such a bad thing.

    Do you know a single Asus notebook with a high quality screen?

    This notebook would be unrivaled if it had a decent screen, and I would buy it in a second but Asus never invests in a good screen.
