    Yeah, this is my debate now. I think I'm going to go for the unibody UX31A-DB71 because I'm not sure how well the switchable graphics would work with Ubuntu. Besides, slimmer, lighter, sexier... :D

    Is the Microsoft store selling any Ivy bridge laptops?

    Very true. Also, I'm a little worried about the flexing on the keyboard with the VD models some have reported. Not that the 31A is guaranteed to not have this.

    But I'm just hoping the HD 4000 will be enough for my design usage. Plus no modifying anything after. I should be fine with 256GB though. 4GB is great but it's also impossible to upgrade RAM on it right? :(

    I've seen conflicting info on whether the RAM is upgradable on the UX31A, mostly in this thread. It'd be nice to have the flexibility, but I think I should be fine for my use...

    Anyone have any idea on available colours? If it's just the dark grey that'd available, that'd fine with me, but I'd like to check out my options regardless.

    Any confirmation whether the UX31A-DB51 in north america are coming with Sandisk or ADATA SSDs? I'm itching to place an order but can't decide between the UX31A-DB51 or the UX32VD-DB71.

    They don't even have the Ivy Bridge Samsung Series 9 13" models. Seems like the Vizio update is a bit of an anomaly.

    Gotcha, thanks. You're looking at that rose gold one hah? My girlfriend said she wanted that one lol.

    Unfortunately, I've only seen it offered on the UX31E, but the Prime versions may or may not have been shown off at Computex too.

    Yeah, true. But they also offer other Ivy Bridge models. Strange.


    I've seen a lot of confirmation of ADATA SSDs being used, but not specifically to NA yet. Hopefully we find out very soon with people being given confirmation of shipments this week.

    Hell no, I don't do pink. Ever.

    I'll likely go for the dark grey, but I remember seeing a bronzish Zenbook and wanted to check it out too.

    Just looking at the pink picture you posted makes me heave a little bit... :p

    Rose gold's more bearable than the hot pink at least. Apparently, that's the IN color lately. :confused:

    If that made you heave, wait till you see this one.
