Asus pulled a rabbit out of their hat last year with the UX302 which was also the winner of our ˜Laptop of the year\’ category for Exhibit Tech Awards 2014. That said, the UX305 available in various variants like the ˜F\’ that we have here, is the successor to the almighty UX302. We tested it and to be frank, we are amazed to see the possibilities that an Ultrabook can achieve.
13.3 inches, 1980x1080p Display, Windows (8.1), Intel Core M, 4GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, Up to 10 hours Battery Life
¢ Ultra light weight design crafted in aluminum is available in various color options and allows for excellent ease of use.
¢ Newest hardware is more than capable of handling daily tasks and some heavy software if need arises.
¢ The matte display is amazingly crisp, bright and offers great viewing angles as compared to the competition. We had the 1080p panel but there is a variant that also features 3200×1800 screen resolution.
¢ Does not heat even under stress considering the immensely thin profile.
¢ Great battery life makes it an apt ultrabook for travelers and power users.
¢ No Backlit keyboard makes it feel a bit mediocre especially considering the price that it demands.
¢ Speakers suffer from less volume levels & you will need a headphone almost every time.
Asus\’s Zenbook UX305 is what an ultrabook should be. It\’s amazingly thin, light weight and performs decently well too. One thing we know by now When it comes to making ultrabooks, Asus is possibly the pro. Although the UX305 lacks a few things that are necessary to make it perfect like the low sounding speakers and the backlit keyboard, the laptop makes for it in the other departments. This is a machine that we would recommend to just about everyone.
