Asus has launched their first Windows 10 premium offering, ZenBook UX305LA, a slimmest in the category as well as a powerful device for power users. Commanding a starting price of Rs.97,990 , the ultraportable laptop will be available across all Asus Exclusive Stories and online retailers from October 15th.
While the new offering will be available with core M, core i7 and core i5 Intel processors, initially the more powerful Core i7 model will be available and will be followed by i5 by end of the quarter.
Being a ultraportable laptop, the Asus ZenBook UX305LA is compact with a 13.3-inch display which is back-lit and a QHD+ resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels. It weights barely 1.3kg with a 6-cell battery and is also slimmest at 12.3mm in thickness at the max point.
Powering the ZenBook UX305LA is a 5th-generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, 8GB of RAM that makes it a very powerful tablet to work with. It also includes a high-speed 512GB SSD storage, which is faster than the conventional hard disks. The SSD offers faster launch of apps as well as a snappier boot time. Asus claims a battery life of 10 hours.
On the port count, the laptop includes 1 USB2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports and a 1 HDMI port, along with microphone in-jack and a headphone out-jack. There is also a HD camera.
Peter Chang, Regional Head of South Asia and Managing Director for Asus India said
“The UX305LA is a perfect balance of great looks and functionality which delivers a powerful performance with the Windows 10 combination. The Indian consumers are increasingly moving towards ultraportable products and the featherweight ZenBook UX305LA is a real performer that redefines this segment with its svelte design. It is one of the most affordable products in this category and we truly believe that it deserves a top spot in the festive shopping list of the Indian consumers.”
The ZenBook will be available in choice of three colors – black, white and gold.
