A range of new computing devices including the latest Asus UX31A Zenbook Prime Ultrabook made their appearances at the recently unfolded Pepcom Digital Experience. The Transformer Pad Infinity and PA248Q Professional Series Monitor accompanied the notebook to the conference. It makes use of the Ivy Bridge processors.

Its reinforced hinges, claim to offer better operation, while ensuring extended longevity.

In spite of its extremely thin chassis, the portable computer packs in a punch with some powerful internal hardware and features.
