ASUS has been taking its loyal fanbase by surprise every time it launches a gadget with industry leading specs with innovation at its core. With ASUS Zenbook UX305 (priced in India at Rs. 49,999), you will find that the company has made no compromise at all. Flaunted with the tagline 'Fat. Slim. Beautiful', here's a Windows 8.1 OS running laptop that weighs just 1.2 kg and is super thin at 1.2 cms. We decided to take a look at the complete tech specs list and found that there's more than a couple of things that one would appreciate about the new Zenbook. Let's take you on a tour of the major feature highlights with the UX305 laptop and see if it lives up to the expectations.


First and foremost thing to capture our attention was the Zenbook's beautiful display. On a 13.3 inch screen there's a QHD+ (3200 x 1800 pixel) resolution display equipped with smart light sensors that adjust the screen's brightness according to the outside light settings (dark or sunny). The screen's anti glare coating and 178-degree viewing angle are responsible for rendering images with far more depth. On the look front, there are two variants and both equally enticing. There's one white ceramic alloy version and another is an obsidian stone version with spun-metal hairline detailing coupled with diamond cut edges. Overall, the design looks really sharp. We found the fanless design charming with its ability to save power, no noise functioning and heat dissipation via natural airflow to be some of the strong points too.


Next thing to woo customers is the 8 GB memory (alongside 128 GB | 256 GB | 512 GB SSD SATA3 options). Moreover, eachZenBook UX305 comes with 16GB of WebStorage space free for one year. Having the Intel Core M5Y10 / M5Y71 processor as its engine, the ASUS Zenbook UX305 features Intel HD Graphics 5300. For user's connectivity and interface needs, there's WiFi (802.11ac), Bluetooth 4.0 three USB 3.0 ports, a micro HDMI port, a mic in and a SD card reader.

There's a HD camera (720 pixel) located on top of the screen and those worrying about the sound quality can check that tech specs list SonicMaster, incorporating ICEpower, Bang & Olufsen technology for better audio output. A 45 Whrs Polymer Battery is said to last for more than 8 hours on QHD+ display and more than 10 hours on FHD display.

As per the country you reside in warranty period is subject change, however the official listing shares that there's 3-year limited International hardware warranty for the ASUS Zenbook UX305 laptop.

That's about everything there is to know about the new Zenbook from Asus. We would love to know your thoughts about its features and pricing. Share your opinions with us in comments below.
