The Best of Windows 10
Get the best Windows 10 experience on the ZenBook UX305 - an Ultrabook that elegantly combines powerful performance with sophisticated design. Its laser-edged, concentric circle pattern is inspired by a circular clock, and the aluminum unibody adds form to functionality as it travels with you weightlessly throughout the day.
Smart Mobility Styled To Impress
See the Difference Anywhere--and Wherever you Go
The ZenBook UX305’s 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. 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 2.5-pounds in weight, ZenBook UX305 beats out the competition as the thinnest and lightest ultrabook in its class. Now it’s 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.
Typing Comfort Hours on End
With longer all day battery life, you’ll be using the keyboard and trackpad longer. That’s why extra attention went into developing an ergonomic full-size keyboard that features optimal 1.5-millimeter key travel (how deep the keys press down), a rubberized palm rest and an extra wide touchpad that simulates a touchscreen for effortless Windows gesture control. Now there’s more comfort and responsiveness to get what you need done.

With the new Intel Core m3-6Y30 Processor, 8GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory and 256GB Solid State Drive, ZenBook UX305 starts up in seconds and keeps moving at a rapid fire pace as you open anything from web browsers to large programs. ASUS Super Hybrid Engine software gives you control and longer-lasting freedom for 2-second Instant On from resume, up to 8 hours of battery life with 2-week long battery standby and automatically backs up data when battery life is below 5%.
Next Gen Mobile Graphics
Don’t let the energy efficient nature of ZenBook UX305 fool you. The embedded Intel HD 515 Graphics still powers graphic-intensive programs for light video and photo editing and casual games. When connected via the micro-HDMI port to a larger 4K display, play video up to 4K resolution and enjoy the highest fidelity visual entertainment.
Mobile HD Video Chatting
Stay close with family and friends with the integrated 1.2-megapixel HD camera for real-time high quality video chatting. Motion capturing is 30 frames-per-second (fps)--double that of most standard 15 fps cameras--so that all your video plays back smooth. And high-sensitivity sensors deliver enhanced low-light capturing to make more details standout in the darkest environments.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 with USB Charger+
ZenBook UX305 features 3 built-in USB 3.0 ports to deliver up to 10 times faster transfer speed compared to previous generation USB. That means saving precious time when downloading photo albums, sharing large video files and performing system backups. One USB port is further enhanced with USB Charger+ for up to 50% faster device charging to USB 3.0 smartphones, tablets and other devices--even with the PC is 'asleep' or shut down.

Background. My main computer is a 32GB core i7 beast with ssd and what not. So my initial hopes for this laptop with a fanless core m processor were very low.
SURPRISE!!! this thing flies. It's not a gaming machine at all, but for office, web browsing and even programming work, I find myself using this more than my main computer. This 6th gen core m processor is comparable to the 5th gen core i5 in performance; well maybe about 20% less powerful in cpu intensive tasks. But honestly, if you don't care about playing games on this laptop, by all means the core m processor is more than enough. And this is coming from an IT analyst who uses Android studio and runs android emulators constantly on this laptop.
Now that performance is out of the way, let's talk why you would want to buy this particular laptop.
1; It's light and portable. For some reason, my ipad air 2 is seeing less use once this baby arrived. Yes, this laptop is more comfortable to use than an ipad most of the times. It's so light and solidly built that it 'begs' to be on you lap all the time.
2; Battery life. This is my first review ever on amazon, and it's the more than 11 hours of real work done without plugging in this laptop to anything that compelled me to write this review. This again is more time than what I get with the ipad air 2, but in this case, I am able to use office (mostly outlook, word and excel) browse the internet (using chrome the battery hog) and keeping a permanent youtube tab playing music. All at the same time. I had brightness at minimum, which is bright enough for me, but other than that no other power optimizations were made.
3; Build quality. The screen (I have the 1080p one) is awesome. It's true that it has a slight tint if you compare it to another screen (in my case a professional calibrated ips monitor), but if you are only looking at it and nothing else then you don't notice the tint. I don't do photography so I don't care weather the display is too warm or cold, as long as can tell the correct colors. Otherwise, it's one of the best screens I've used in a laptop, period. I've used the macbook air, and this laptop feels more solid that the Air, nuff said. The keyboard has excellent travel on par with the air for me. In short, the thing is metal and doesn't feel like it will break at all. It's solid and instills confidence despite the light weight.
4; Silence. Yes, this is a whole lot of reason on its own. This thing has no moving parts at all. Apart from the sound of your fingers pounding the keyboard you get zero noise, nada, from the laptop. It's metal so it shifts from very cold to the touch when completely off to warm when at full throttle but never uncomfortable or hot. I haven't tried it in the summer heat but I almost always use it on my lap and never got worried about the heat coming from it, because there is none. I also haven't once felt any cpu throttling, so having no fan is not affecting performance at all. What has always amazed me is the silence. Hit the switch button, screen comes on without even a click sound. Magical!!! I wish all other computers were this silent. The world would be a better place.
5; Price. Did you notice that this is cheaper than an ipad with half the storage? You'd ask why I keep on insisting on comparing it with an ipad, a device in a whole different category. Precisely because an ipad is usually a secondary device (or tertiary if you consider the phone) normally used as a companion to a full fledged computer. But this primary computing device is cheaper yet almost as portable as the ipad. Don't even bother to compare it to other laptops because non is going to beat this price. I also realize that because of it's weight and portability, I use it more and more in cases where I'd normally use the ipad. In short, the price point is unbeatable.
No review would be complete without outlining the negatives, and this product is no exception. For me the main negative is the keyboard. Specifically the lack of back-lighting. In the dark with lights off it becomes virtually unusable. Maybe one of those cheap usb led lamps may solve the problem but Asus clearly messed up a near perfect product by not placing a backlit keyboard on it. Even for $50 more I would have paid just to get the backlit keyboard on this fanless system.
Another negative would probably be the trackpad. Don't get me wrong, it's smooth, accurate and very responsive as the apple trackpads. The two issues I have with it however is the mechanical click which is very loud and and a bit hard. If like me, you tap to click then you won't find this mechanical clicking an issue as you will not use it. What always get's me however is the double-tap to drag. It works well, only that you have to do it really really fast for it to work and so far I haven't found a way to increase the double tap to drag period. The normal double tap can be adjusted properly in windows settings but if you want to double-tap and then drag after the second tap then you're out of luck. Only one speed is accepted, and that speed is ultra fast. Bummer!
CONCLUSION: I spent countless hours researching the perfect mobile computer. I looked at the more expensive options (the macbook, macbook air, xps 13 and even core i versions of the zenbook) but this configuration (the 1080p non-touch) turned out to be the best option. Fanless, light, robust build quality and very good performance. I could only be happier if the keyboard were backlit.
Now, here's a thing that really bugs me: coil whine/noise from the motherboard! I haven't seen any reviewers other than one person mentioning this problem, but the electric noise is definitely annoying. The high-pitch humming noise is audible in a quiet room and can be very distracting. This was a prevailing problem for last year's Dell XPS 13 when the keyboard backlight was turned on as demonstrated here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mHppKbrXes. For the UX305CA, the coil whine is present all the time, regardless of the load. It's audible at a normal working distance and even more significant when putting ears closer to the keyboard. This must be some kind of engineering issue. I'm not sure if I was unlucky enough to have got a defective device or this is a prevalent hardware problem. I'm travelling abroad soon and thus, won't be able to return or order a replacement until I come back in a month. Hopefully ASUS or Microsoft can provide a solution to this problem.
In conclusion, this is a wonderful piece of laptop if you are a student or working professional who need basic, powerful performances for studies, work, and multimedia. It's not designed for gaming or tasks requiring higher processing power. I don't have much complaint except the coil whine. I'll update this review later once I get to use this laptop longer and the coil-whine problem is resolved.
