Asus is going a bit aggressive with the PC and laptop platforms. A good sign as the market is again looking a bit open for these devices. Asus has launched a hot new laptop called the Zenbook UX305 in India. This notebook has a 13.3-inch QHD+ display and is just 12.3 mm thick, making it one of the thinnest laptops available today in the market.
Zenbook UX305 has stunning exteriors and is available in white and black colours. When it comes to the firepower within the laptop, this stunner has the works. To start with, Asus has given the Zenbook UX305 512 GB SSD hard drive. This will surely keep the boot up time and app load times low. Next is the CPU, which is powered by Intel. This laptop has Intel Core M-5Y10 processor that comes along with 8 GB RAM.
Despite the slim bezel Asus has managed to give this notebook three USB 3.0 ports and a mini display port. Zenbook UX305 runs Microsoft Windows 8.1 and manages to capture the finger gestures like pinch zoom etc using the large track pad on the system.
“Today’s introduction of our latest ASUS ZENBOOK is our step ahead to make the incredible available for the Indian masses. Being the pioneers of bringing ultrabooks in the country, we comprehend the market for Ultrabooks here and have timely introduced various variants to cater to the demand. Zenbook UX305 is one of our elite ranges of products and will further enhance our Ultrabook Series and quality offerings for our existing and prospective customers,” Mr. Peter Chang, Region Head – South Asia & Country Manager – System Business Group – ASUS India
This lappy also supports 3,200 x 1,800 pixels resolution that has 700:1 contrast ratio. As far as battery life is concerned this Zenbook can stay alive for 10 hours. Pretty decent for a laptop this size, if you ask us. Zenbook US305 weighs 1.2 Kg’s and can be picked up from Flipkart or exclusive Asus stores for Rs 49,999.
