Asus uploaded official photos of Transformer Prime vs Zenbook UX21.
Both devices look incredible next to each other and their appearance too. The Prime is a bit thicker, but let’s not forget that it’s a two-in-one device and is not called an Ultrabook. It will be interesting to see how the rumored upcoming Ultrabook of Asus (with its swivel-screen) will look next to the Zenbook. But for now we will have to wait till next year, hopefully at CES in Las Vegas.
