ASUS Zenbook UX305 Core-M Ultrabook Hands-On

Posted on 03 September 2014, Last updated on 26 January 2020 by


At a press event in Berlin today ASUS launched a laptop based on Core M. The ASUS Zenbook UX305 is just 12.3 mm thick and weighs 1.2KG. There’s no price available yet but it’s clearly a Q4 product.

The ASUS Zenbook UX305 that I had hands-on with has a 45Wh battery inside along with a 128GB SSD. It runs on a Core M 5Y10a CPU at 1Ghz. The non-touch screen is QHD (3200×1800) and there’s a nice keyboard.

Surprisingly, for an Ultrabook, there’s no touchscreen but perhaps we’ll see that in the near future but at 1.2KG this is quite the ultra mobile laptop. Is it fanless? We think it might be but haven’t confirmed that yet.
