From the manafuturer:

ASUS ZenBook is lighter, slimmer and faster than other notebooks in its class to give you the unmatched power and all-day portability you need to conquer your day. And when other glossy notebooks show more glare than what’s actually on the screen, ASUS ZenBook always shines through even the sunniest days thanks to the 13-inch matte anti-glare wide-angle IPS display. Featuring the new Intel Core M processor, do more with faster speeds and enhanced efficiency that automatically adjusts performance to what you’re doing. Add to that the incredible responsiveness of the Solid State Drive (SSD), everything from startup to loading demanding programs happens in a flash. And like the silent power of an electric sports car, the fanless processor and SSD give you all the power you want--without any of the noise.

ZenBook UX305 is unlike any Ultrabook out there that makes a statement of individuality with sophistication. It’s laser-edged, concentric circle pattern is inspired by a circular clock for a timeless design, and the aluminum unibody adds form to functionality as it travels with you weightlessly throughout the day. Complemented with world class innovation inside as well as out, there’s power beckoning behind every pixel of the display and every press of the key

See the Difference Anywhere--and Wherever you Go

ZenBook UX305 gives you the freedom to not only use it all day without charging but to use it wherever you want to go. The 13.3-inch IPS anti-glare display looks amazing and prevents distracting glare whether you’re working in a brightly lit room or streaming videos sitting at a cafe table in the sun. And with a wide viewing angle of 170-degrees, share the screen with others when watching an HD movie or showing your presentation files.

Ultra Thin, Ultra Light and Completely Silent

Under half an inch thin and just over 2.5lbs in weight, ZenBook UX305 beats out the competition as the thinnest and lightest ultrabook in its class. Now its easier than ever to slip in and out of cases and bags for compact carrying convenience. Adding even more function to form, the fanless processor and SSD use rare chromium copper alloy coils for advanced cooling. So you get enhanced durability with silent operation, no matter the system load.

Sound Worthy of A Grammy

Hear the Magic of Award-Winning Audio

Combining the skill and expertise of the ASUS Golden Ear team andBang & Olufsen ICEpower, ZenBook is the result of a sound experience like no other. It makes for amazing acoustics in all your music, media and games. Oval voice coils, large speaker magnets and even the resonating aluminum design of ZenBook UX305 are all separate parts of the complete sound system whole.

Effortless Sound Control
