Meet Zenbook UX301 - the Ultrabook with everlasting elegance
Creating the perfect Ultrabook means striking a perfect balance between form and function. Zenbook UX301 has a strikingly gorgeous design refined with crystalline glass and classic hairline metallic finish that's just 15.5mm thick - 14% thinner than the previous Zenbook. Lift the lid and inside is a vibrant 13.3-inch WQHD display that brings images to life and makes everything from browsing the web to working with documents an absolute pleasure. Zenbook UX301is the Ultrabook you'll want with you, wherever you go.
Technology with a human touch
Zenbook UX301 is wonderfully tactile, but that goes well beyond just the feel of its sleek, smooth and durable glass design. Windows 8 is designed with touch in mind and a dedicated ASUS Human Computer Interface team help make it even more intuitive to use with features like a responsive multi-touch display, and a large touch pad with multi-touch support. The backlit keyboard with automatic brightness control also means you'll always have a clear view of the keys, so you can stay productive, even in complete darkness. So whichever way you like to work, Zenbook UX301 has you covered.
10-Point Capacitive Multi-Touch Display
Touch is such an intuitive way to interact with a computer display, we've been trying to do it for decades - just ask anyone who sells screen-cleaning kits. The good news is that with Zenbook UX301, reaching out to touch the screen is no longer an empty gesture. Its 13.3-inch multi-touch display responds to the slightest touch in just 30ms, so you can tap an icon to open an app, pinch a web page to make the text larger, and swipe across the screen to switch between running applications instantly. Multi-touch makes everything so much easier.
Windows 8 input made easy
Multi-touch makes it so much easier to get things done, so why save it just for the screen Zenbook UX301 also has as a multi-touch touchpad, so you can use Windows 8 gestures without lifting your hands from the keyboard for even greater productivity. The touchpad has the same 16:9 aspect ratio as the display for more precise pointer control and we've made it larger than most to leave plenty of room to use Windows 8 gestures. Even the buttons are built into the touchpad surface to give as much space as possible for your fingers to be comfortable.
ASUS Smart Gesture Technology lets you pinch zoom in/out, scroll, and tap as it sets a new standard in Windows 8 touch input.
Backlit for a better typing experience
A keyboard is still the best way to get things done for most people, so we made sure Zenbook UX301 has the best available. Each key is expertly tuned to require just the right amount of force to press and have just the right amount of travel, so it's both quiet and comfortable for two-finger and touch typists alike. And since an Ultrabook is designed to be used anywhere, we made the keyboard that way, too. Its backlight adjusts automatically to suit the level of ambient lighting, so you'll always be able to see they keys, even in complete darkness.
The Desktop reinvented
With a fresh new look and a Start screen that puts your most important apps right beneath your fingertips, Windows 8 is all about you. See at-a-glance updates from family and friends with Live Tiles for your favorite social media services, and switch between apps simply by swiping across the screen or touchpad. New multitasking features make it easy to do two things at once, too. Just snap two apps side-by-side and you can browse web while watching a video, or chat with a colleague while editing a document. Windows 8 means you spend less time searching and more time doing.
The power and performance you need
Zenbook UX301 is a high-performance Ultrabook in every sense. A 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor with Intel HD Graphics 4400 make light work of the most demanding tasks, and keeps you entertained with your favorite games and HD video, even when you're on the move. Solid-state storage means applications launch in double-quick time and, together with Super Hybrid Engine II technology, boosts battery life and standby time to stretch out the time between recharges. Two USB 3.0 ports support the latest high-speed storage and recharge mobile devices in double-quick time, while sophisticated thermal management means Zenbook UX301 never loses its cool.
Portable power and performance
Zenbook UX301 is powered by 4th generation Intel Core i5 processors for seamless multi-tasking performance and outstanding energy efficiency. A high-end Core i5-4200U dual-core option makes light work of even the most demanding applications. Intel Turbo Boost Technology gives a burst of extra speed up to 2.6GHz when you really need it, while Intel HD Graphics 4400 with Clear Video HD technology gives silky smooth playback with Full HD video.
Solid-state storage for serious speed
Zenbook UX301 features up to 512GB of solid-state storage that not only keeps your data safe, but also makes it much faster to use - and optional 512GB RAID0 SSD storage turbo-charges performance even more. With no moving parts to damage or fail, solid-state storage is extremely durable and its low power requirements mean longer battery life when you're nowhere near a power socket. More importantly, at around four times faster than a traditional hard drive, solid-state storage is blisteringly quick. That means there's less time spent waiting for applications to launch and large files to open, leaving you to spend more time getting things done.
Work all day on a single charge
Energy-efficient components like the Intel Core processor and solid-state drive help Zenbook UX301 last for up to 8 hours on battery power, so you can get a full day's work done before you need to recharge. Exclusive Super Hybrid Technology can also boost battery life by up to 25% for less demanding tasks like web browsing and watching video, so you can last even longer between trips to the power socket.
Always ready when you are
No one should have to wait when they want to get something done, which is why Zenbook UX301 wakes from standby in just two seconds. Exclusive Super Hybrid Engine II technology gives up to two weeks' standby time too, and automatically saves all open applications and data to the solid-state drive when the battery drops below 5% charge level gets too low. So you don't have to worry about always leaving Zenbook Touch plugged into a power socket just because you're not using it.
USB 3.0, the next-generation connection for faster data transfers
USB 3.0 is ten times faster than USB 2.0 and with two ports at your disposal, you can save photos, transfer MP3s and open multi-gigabyte video files in a fraction of the time with compatible storage. USB 3.0 has more power for mobile devices, too. Smartphones and tablets recharge in half the time compared to USB 2.0, even when Zenbook UX301 is switched off. USB Charger+ technology lets you charge your devices on-the-go.
Designed to never lose its cool
An Ultrabook as sophisticated as Zenbook UX301 needs a cooling system to match, so we designed our own. Inside the case is a custom heatsink made from beryllium copper alloy, which conducts heat away from hot components much more effectively than ordinary copper. Rather than spoil the sleek lines of Zenbook Touch with unsightly grilles, warm air then is channeled through a vent below the screen hinge, well away from any part of your body that touches the case. The result is an Ultrabook that's much cooler than the competition - in more ways than one.
SonicMaster, because we're serious about sound
Creating an Ultrabook that looks as incredible as Zenbook UX301 is one thing, but making one that sounds as incredible is something else. The key to our success is our unique SonicMaster technology and a team of audio engineers who expertly balance high-quality audio hardware and professional-grade audio software to ensure the best possible sound quality. We think all the hard work is worth it, and when you hear the wide dynamic range with rich bass and sharp treble that Zenbook Touch delivers, we know you will, too.
Store, share, and sync
ASUS cloud services provide the most complete platform for online living that's accessible anywhere from a host of devices. With ASUS WebStorage, convenience is the main priority, offering you easy storage, sharing, and syncing of everything from business presentations to photo albums and favorite multimedia content. Each ASUS Zenbook comes with 32GB of WebStorage space free for the three years, and offers you the MyBitCast app so you can easily sync your content to multiple devices and accounts simultaneously.
