Under the hood is a 128 GB SSD paired with 8GB of RAM. One of the innovations behind the Broadwell processor design is that it allows laptop makers to fore-go fans due to built-in thermal management. The lack of cooling fans also makes the laptop almost silent when working.
At 12.3mm (0.48 inches) thin and weighing in at just 1.2kg (2.65 pounds), the UX305 is going to fit inside your bag no problems. As is often the case with modern Ultrabooks, it’s made up of a wedge shaped design, tapering to its thinnest points by the trackpad. The keyboard has an “improved layout” and is backlit for those late night typing sessions, and the whole thing will be available in a color that Asus calls “Obsidian Stone” with a spun metal finish.
So, what else do we get? Well, there are 3 USB 3.0 ports, with one of them containing ASUS Charger+ for rapid recharging of mobile devices. A USB Ethernet adaptor comes bundled with the package along with a miniDP to VGA cable for plugging into an external monitor. And the Asus Sonicmaster sound technology will keep you booming on the go.
Asus made some new fans at the Japan Institute of Design Promotion by winning their Good Design Award, and it also picked up a place on the Good Design Best 100 list.
Asus did not forget to include a good sound system on the net-book; the laptop uses SonicMaster audio, which utilizes ICEpower, Bane & Olufsen technology assures the presence of deep bass and cutting vocals.
