  1. I have purchased one of these ASUS ZENBOOK UX31E Ultrabook and also had an issue witht the track-pad. But Asus recently offered an update to the driver for the track pad and I must say that the problems I had are now completly gone. I would give this ASUS ZENBOOK UX31E Ultrabook a 5+/5. I got mine in October 2011 and it’s December 2011 and I will simply not give this one up. Best purchase I have made in the last two to three years…

    • thanks for the information – I am glad they sorted it out as that was the only thing I didnt really like about it. Unfortunately I dont have the ZENBOOK anymore as it had to be returned, but it’s great to hear you like it.
