ASUS Zenbook UX305 Review: A Great Laptop

ASUS Zenbook

This ASUS Zenbook UX305 13.3 inch MacBook air-styled laptop running Windows is thinner than MacBook Air. The metal exterior with its subtle brushed finish looks beautiful. It has full HD resolution LED-backlit display and is powered by Intel Core M-5Y10 Processor clubbed with 4GB of RAM and Intel HD Graphics 5300.


The laptop absolutely nailed the premium metal look and feel. The shinier brushed metal look offers matte-looking etched finish. The overall design is stunning and the most striking feature is its slimness. The slim, light and sexy metallic body coupled with matte high resolution display won our heart. UX305 continues the ZenBook tradition by featuring a gorgeous aluminum body and thin waistline.

Zenbook UX305 features a low-power Intel Core M-5Y10 CPU along with 8GB of RAM. It has 256GB solid-state drive. The performance of this laptop is really impressive especially when it comes to pricing and everyday use. It is one of the best choices we have for budget-conscious people.

The Chiclet-styled keyboard is comfortable and the keys have standard actuation weight of 60 grams. It features a 4.1 x 2.9 inch one-piece touchpad to handle your mousing needs. Touchpad has massively been improved by Asus’ excellent Gesture Control software. The only feature missing is the backlighting in keyboard. Other than that, it works great and is comfortable to work upon.

Ports and Webcam

Zenbook UX305 comes with three USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, a micro HDMI port, a DC-in port and a combo headphone/mic jack. There’s a 720p webcam that takes videos at 30 frames per second. Asus includes a USB Ethernet adapter and there’s inbuilt 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi.
