One of my favorite Ultrabook that is currently available in the market, is the Asus Zenbook. It’s very thin and light, plus it has the processing power that could meet your demands. Previously the Asus Zenbook was only available in Silver Aluminum color. For some it looks dull and very “for-him” only. But Asus has decided to spice up their flagship Ultrabook and add a Pink Asus Zenbook. It was dubbed as the Asus Zenbook Rose Gold Edition. This is great for people, specially the ladies, who likes the touch of pink. You can see the features, specifications, gallery and a short review below.

Asus Zenbook Rose Gold Review
I was not able to personally review the Asus Zenbook since I was not able to get a sample unit. But based on the reviews from the customers who bought it, and the graphs shown below (courtesy of Laptopmag’s review of the Asus Zenbook found here), the Asus Zenbook is one of the best Ultrabooks out there.
Pros: Stylish, elegant looking, slim, sexy and sturdy Ultrabook. Fast recovery from sleep mode. Powerful Audio capability. Fast and strong performance thanks to 32nm Intel Core i7 processor.
Cons: Keyboard no backlight (this would not be a Con if backlight in keyboard is not an issue for you).
Would I recommend Asus Zenbook (Rose Gold)? Definitely yes! Of Course I’m not going to buy the Rose Gold edition. I’ll go for the Aluminum Silver Edition since I am a boy. If ever I could buy two units I’ll give the Rose Gold edition to my wife. ^_^
