Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A: Check out The Verge’s review of this hot piece of ass (great name, by the way, not to be confused with the UX31A). I bet they got the trackpad right this time:
Now, the moment of truth: did Asus fix the touchpad issues that sullied the original? Yes and no. Mostly no. In fact, Asus has changed up the trackpad quite a bit, and it doesn’t jump around during use. The touchpad (an Elan model) is fairly quick and accurate with a single finger, although the company’s new, tackier glass touchpad surface can keep your digits from traveling smoothly if you’re light on finger oil. I prefered the texture of the original.
But - BUT - there’s more:
The problems are these: scrolling through webpages and documents with two-finger swipes is a stuttery mess (ditto pinch-to-zoom), and more importantly, there doesn’t seem to be any sort of competent palm rejection to keep the cursor from traveling while you’re typing. See these paragraphs in front of your eyes? I typed every one on this machine, and just about every single one of them was abruptly chopped apart by my mouse pointer when my palms accidentally brushed the trackpad. Infinite monkey theorem could be disproven by the touchpad on this Zenbook.
