Similarly with the ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi, this Zenbook UX305 is also powered by the latest Intel Core M processor, meaning a fanless design as well. With a powerful battery life of up to 10 hours of usage, this 12.3mm thin Ultrabook is another super slim, super light laptop for Ultrabook lovers out there. Like me.

The standard design that we love from ASUS Zenbook series are present, including the spun metal hairline detail design, generous 3 USB ports, wedge shaped all aluminium design and diamond cut edges. This is yet another gorgeous thin and light laptop from ASUS, still worthy from their last award of 2014 Good Design Award from the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP).

If you’re looking for a sleek, powerful, long battery life portable Ultrabook, this ASUS Zenbook UX305 should definitely be in your consideration. I know I am tempted.
