Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71 features a brilliant 1080p display just like the Asus UX32VD R4002V and there are not may differences between the two too. Both come with Core i7 ultra book ULV processor and discrete GPUs as well.
However, the UX32VD-DB71 come with a more powerful i7 5317U processor compared to the i7 3517U (read Core i7 3517u review) CPU that is being used in the UX32VD R4002V ultrabook (mobilityupdate.com). However, the GPU has not undergone any change (which is not a bad thing by any means). It is still the very powerful Nvidia 620M GPU that supports optimus technology.
Folks at pcmag have done a review of it and they say that the Asus has the thinnest and lightest ultra book with 1080p display. However, they do warn the users that the text can be pretty tiny on its 1080p screen. Battery life is also not great. However, the port selection is very good as it packs 3x USB 3.0 ports and a full size HDMI port.
