Zenbook UX305

If you're in the market for a stylish ultrabook but are on a tight budget, the ASUS ZenBook UX305 is a laptop worth looking into.

The UX305 has earned high marks for its build quality, slim profile, and its reasonable pricetag. Let's dig into some reviews and see if it's worth your personal investment. On top of pro reviews, we'll also be hearing from the Windows Central community in the comments about their first-hand experiences with this laptop.

The ASUS ZenBook UX305 is a light and portable laptop that goes easy on the wallet. It's just a hair under half an inch thick and weighs in at 2.6 pounds. You can get a generous 3200 x 1800 13.3-inch display, but the base model starts at 1080p. 512 GB SSD, 8 GB of RAM, and three USB 3.0 ports (one of which will keep charging devices even when the PC is shut down). The ASUS ZenBook features a mid-range Core M processor. The whole affair is fanless, so there's little worry about noise or heat.
