The Asus Zenbook UX305 is a thin and light laptop that measures about 0.5 inches thick and weighs about 2.6 pounds. It’s powered by an Intel Core M Broadwell processor, offers up to 10 hours of battery life, and has a high-resolution 13 inch display.
That price will get you a model with a 1920 x 1080 pixel matte IPS display, but Asus will offer an optional 3200 x 1800 pixel glossy touchscreen display option in the future.
The ZenBook UX305 features 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive. It has dual-band 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 and features three USB 3.0 ports, a micro HDMI port, and an SD card reader.
Each model has an Intel Core M-5Y10 processor, 802.11n WiFi Bluetooth 4.0, a micro HDMI port, three USB 3.0 ports, an SDXC cardreader, and support for Ethernet with an external adapter cable.
While the press release doesn’t make any mention of it, the last time I saw the Zenbook UX305 it also featured passive cooling, which means there were no noisy fans inside the case.
