The lucky dogs at The Verge got their hands on a sexy new Ultrabook coming from ASUS very soon while attending the NVIDIA investors day this week.  The Zenbook Prime UX32VD will feature a 13-in 1920x1080 resolution IPS display in addition to the discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M Kepler-based GPU.  Optimus Technology will obviously be included in order to allow the GPU to completely power off when you aren't gaming or taking advantage of it for the best battery life the platform can muster.

The word is that it will ship with a Core i5 ULV Ivy Bridge processor and be priced somewhere around $1299.  The shape of the UX32VD is just slightly different than that of the current wave of Zenbooks, with a "bit of a chin" according to The Verge's Sean Hollister.  ASUS' upcoming machine will include three USB 3.0 ports, a memory card reader, HDMI, mini-DisplayPort and an audio jack for a fairly complete connectivity suite. 

You can see many more photos of the Zenbook Prime UX32VD at The Verge's gallery.

With discrete GPUs being heavily pushed by NVIDIA, even on Ultrabook designs, we are very eager to see what all the major notebook vendors are able to come up with for Computex next month.

I'm a little shaky on the price. It's fair. They add another two inches to the screen and I'd bite. I wonder what SSD they've decided to go with.

This is the us32vd it comes with a hybrid hard drive 24gb of ssd and 500gb of normal hard drive.

24GB makes me think it's an mSATA based SSD.

1300 is a nice chunk of change, but it really does look beauty of a laptop.

If they've got a cooling solution that's not too hot or too loud, that's awesome. It's been awhile since I saw a notebook I really liked.
