It's hard not to say WOW when you first set your eyes on the ASUS ZenBook UX305 Crystal White Limited Edition.

It's thin, light, and we don't often see laptops in this color. The 13-inch matte in-plane switching (IPS) multi-touch display with QHD+ resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels and wide viewing angles looks incredible too. We've got our hands on it during an ASUS event in New York. Take a look at our video.

The Mpow Armor Portable Bluetooth Speaker comes across as a very formidable Windows Phone accessory. The specs offer a rugged speaker that should be well suited for the beach, poolside or while out camping in the great beyond.

The 5W speaker is listed as waterproof, shockproof and dustproof. Battery life is estimated at 10 hours for playback time and you have the added bonus of using the 1000mAh battery as an emergency power source should your Windows Phone need a little boost. We took the Mpow BT speaker out for a test drive this past weekend and was rather impressed with the build quality and sound performance this little speaker offers.
