From the first time you take the Asus Zenbook out of its jewel-box packaging until you turn off the unit you might think you had a MacBook Air missing the Apple logo. The un-packaging experience makes you think the unit cost several hundred dollars more but unlike Apple the box contains a USB-to-Ethernet and VGA dongle with along with an attractive brown, nylon envelope-style sleeve to protect it. In fact, the square plastic wall charger with a removable plug tip is a nice departure from the typical power brick that you have to lug around in your backpack or briefcase.
