ASUS Zenbook UX305 & EeeBook X205 Announced

2579637_ASUS_ZENBOOK_UX305_PR02When it comes to stylish and slim laptops, you probably think of devices like Apple’s MacBook Air or Ultrabooks. Well if you wanted something stylish and with the latest hardware, ASUS might have something that could be of interest to you. During IFA 2014, the company announced both the Zenbook UX305 and the EeeBook X205.

The former is part of ASUS’ Zenbook Ultrabook lineup. It will pack a 13.3-inch display and will come with a resolution of 3200×1800 which we have to admit is pretty high and will give it a pretty decent pixel density of 267ppi. It will also measure 0.48-inches thick and weigh 2.645lbs, thus making it a relatively thin and light device to bring around with you. The Ultrabook will also feature Intel’s Core M processors and will come in either 128GB or 256GB SSD options.

The laptop will be powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor and will come with Windows 8.1 with Bing preinstalled. It will also be accompanied by 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB storage options, and will come with 500GB of ASUS WebStorage, which is essentially cloud storage. There will also be 100GB of Microsoft OneDrive storage that will be valid for 2 years.

Availability of either have have yet to be confirmed, but we will be keeping our eyes peeled for more info. In the meantime do you think the EeeBook X205 will have what it takes to steal some of the Chromebook’s market share?
