    Asus unveils Zenbook UX305 Broadwell-powered ultrabook

    Asus is updating its Zenbook line of premium thin and light laptops with a new model featuring Intel’s new low-power Core M “Broadwell” processor.

    The Asus Zenbook UX305 is a 13.3 inch laptop that measures less than half an inch thick and weighs just over 2.6 pounds.

    The notebook has a 13.3 inch, 3200 x 1800 pixel display and supports up to 256GB of solid state storage. Asus says the notebook should get over 10 hours of battery life.

    It features HDMI output, 802.11ac WiFi, 3 USB ports, a headset jack, and an SD card reader.

    Mobile Geeks got a chance to check out the new Zenbook and reports it has a matte display, Bang & Olufsen speakers, and comes in black or white colors.

    • Great specs but I'd like to see Asus and other vendors offer models of their products with displays having lower resolution, at least on a 13" screen. The vendors all seem to be a pixel race to justify pricing north of $1000 but there are a lot of critical mainstream applications having menus that don't scale and they become near impossible to use on a 13" display even with good vision. Putting super resolution displays in 13" today is like Microsoft pushing Tile World on desktiops without touch. It might be a positive step but everything else has to be in place for it to work.
