Asus launched the latest addition in the ZenBook series, the ZenBook UX305, in the UK earlier this month, and is now bringing the Ultrabook to the U.S. The 0.48-inch thick notebook will be available in the country for just $699 for the full-HD model, with the QHD+ variant set to debut at a later date.
The ZenBook UX305 features a 13.3-inch full-HD display, Intel's latest generation Core M CPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. There's dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, a USB to Ethernet adapter, one micro-HDMI port and three USB 3.0 ports, one of which can be used to charge your mobile device quickly through Asus' Charger+ technology. Also included is the vendor's SonicMaster audio technology that delivers clear sound from the built-in speakers. The notebook runs Windows 8.1 out of the box.
The all-aluminum Ultrabook comes with a wedge design and will be offered in an Obsidian Stone color variant. The full-HD model will be available in the U.S. for $699, which is much lower than other notebooks that offer similar specs. We'll let you know where you can get one as soon as it goes on sale.
