AnandTech reviews the ASUS Zenbook UX305.
Overall, even with the knocks against it, this is a heck of a device for just $699. A Core M processor, which allows a fanless and therefore silent device, but still offers good performance, and much more performance than any other CPU which would allow for a fanless design. 8 GB of memory standard. A 256 GB solid state drive standard. A 1920x1080p IPS display, once again standard. ASUS has really raised the bar for what someone can expect in a mid-range device.
I honestly cannot believe that you can buy this much laptop for that kind of money these days – and unlike other cheap laptops, this actually isn’t a piece of crap, but a proper, all-metal laptop that doesn’t look like two stoeptegels slapped together.
