If you're like me, you're a big fan of ultrabooks. The mixing of the extremely thin and light form factor, pretty-good performance, and fantastic battery life makes for a wonderful laptop for use when you're away from your desktop. Today, Asus announced the next in their line of ultrabooks, the UX32 series. A successor to their UX31 ultabooks, the UX32 series packs a punch with Ivy Bridge processors. One of the UX32 models even has a dedicated graphics card.

The two new models are the UX32A and the UX32Vd. Both have Ivy Bridge processors, which have significantly better integrated graphics performance compared to Sandy Bridge processors' Intel HD 3000 graphics. Other features include a 500GB/24GB hybrid HDD/SDD, a 1920x1080 screen (if you pay for it), and 2GB or 4GB of RAM. The UX32Vd is the one with discrete graphics, and the chip they included is the NVIDIA GeForce 620m. It's still an entry-level graphics card, but it's not bad.

It looks like the UX32A will be around $799, and the UX32Vd (the one with discrete graphics) will be around $1099. No release date has been set, but they'll probably be released relatively soon. You can read more about them here and here
