Lisa Gade reviews the Asus Zenbook UX305 Windows 8.1 notebook. This is a lovely 13.3” 12.3mm slim laptop with a spun aluminum lid and metal casing that sells for just US $699. ** Read our full written review here: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/notebooks/Asus-Zenbook-UX305.htm
The Ultrabook has a 13.3” IPS matte full HD 1080p display (QHD 3200 x 1800 is coming for $999) and it weighs 2.64 lbs. The fanless laptop runs on the Intel Broadwell 5th generation Core M CPU: the 800MHz Core M-5Y10 with Turbo Boost to 2 GHz. It has 8 gigs of RAM and a 256 gig SSD. The UX305 had dual band Intel 7265 WiFi 802.11ac with Bluetooth 4.0 and plenty of ports including 3 USB ports. Asus includes a USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet adapter in the box. Note that it does not have a touch screen. It’s well priced vs. the 12” MacBook that costs significantly more.
