ASUS has announced the super-slim and light ZenBook UX305 notebook for the UK market.
It’s just 12.3mm thin and weighs only 1.2kg but still features a 1920 x 1080 resolution IPS display. The UX305 is powered by the all-new Intel CoreM processor and features an ultra-fast 128GB solid-state disk. The best-case battery life of up to 10 hours should make it ideal for those who travel.
The tapered wedge design is home to a full-size ergonomic keyboard and the large touchpad supports Smart Gestures for intuitive control of Windows 8.1.
The new Intel Core M processor is said to be remarkably power-efficient and in combination with 8GB of RAM and the 128GB SSD, should help the UX305 deliver an impressive all-round performance. The blindingly-fast SATA 6Gbit/s SSD — which is up to six times faster than a traditional hard disk drive — will make light work of file-intensive office productivity tasks.
The advanced ASUS thermal management design removes the need for cooling fans, so UX305 is fast yet completely silent, and they say it remains cool at all times. ASUS IceCool technology ensures that the palm-rest area remains below body temperature at all times for maximum comfort.
Despite its slim design, UX305 offers users full connectivity, with a total of three SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, offering data transfers that are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. One of the USB ports supports ASUS Charger+ technology for rapid recharging of mobile devices. A USB-to-Ethernet adapter is bundled with UX305, along with a mini DisplayPort-to-VGA adapter for connecting to an external monitor.
The ASUS ZenBook UX305 will be available from major retailers with an MSRP of £649.99.
