ASUS gives us a blast from the past with a modern day EeeBook
Apple has been dragging its feet in providing any meaningful hardware updates to its
MacBook Air family of laptops
, but that isn’t stopping the competition from upping the ante year after year. ASUS is the latest company to up the stakes in the ultrabook category with the new Zenbook UX305.
Whereas the previous UX301 featured a 13.3” 2550x1440 display, the UX305 goes into hyperdrive with an ultra-sharp 13.3” 3200x1800 display. The UX301 will pack in
Intel Core M processors
, a 128GB or 256GB SSD, HDMI-out, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, three USB ports, and an SD slot.
ASUS managed to cram all of this functionality into a device that is less than a half-inch thick and weighs 2.65 pounds. For comparison, a 13.3” MacBook Air is 0.68” thick and weighs 2.96 pounds.
Unfortunately, ASUS hasn’t announced pricing or availability for the Zenbook UX305, but we’ll provide you with the details as soon as we’re privy to the information.
The Zenbook UX305 isn’t the only new notebook that was announced today by ASUS. The company also revealed the new EeeBook X205, which is the spiritual successor to the
original EeePC that was first announced seven years ago
and kicked off the netbook craze.
The $199 EeeBook X205 comes with a quad-core Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage, and 500GB of ASUS WebStorage (free for two years). When it comes to connectivity, the EeeBook X205 comes equipped with 802.11n Wi-Fi, microSD slot, micro-HDMI, and two USB 2.0 ports.
As its pricing suggest, the EeeBook X205 will run
