    ASUS Launches the new ZENBOOK™ UX303 Ultrabooks™ starting at $899
    Newly designed with a smoky brown metallic-finish, the ASUS ZENBOOK UX303 packs Intel® Core™ i7 performance into a 0.7 inch slim form factor

    Fremont, CA (August 13th, 2014) - ASUS today releases the availability of its new addition to the ZENBOOK ultrabook family, which combines power and class into one premium design. The new ZENBOOK lineup welcomes the UX303LA and UX303LN, both featuring an Intel® Core™ i7 processor within an ultra-sleek smoky brown chassis that measures only 0.7 inch thin, which is further enhanced by the iconic spun-metal finish that echoes the spirit of Zen.
    The UX303LN in particular, packs not only the high-performance Intel® Core™ i7 processor but also features a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 840M graphics for silky smooth performance. The UX303LN also features a Quad HD+ IPS touchscreen display with a resolution of 3200x1800 that is 5 times higher than an HD display, delivering stunning lifelike visuals with a wide 170 degree viewing angle. ASUS' exclusive SonicMaster audio, which incorporates ICEpower®, Bang & Olufsen technology, also delights the ears with incredible sound.

    "We are very excited to launch the ZENBOOK UX303 in North America with a starting price point of $899," says James Melendez, Director of Sales at ASUS Computer International, "we see consumers expressing higher and higher interest in these ultra-slim touchscreen devices and we want to make sure that we deliver the same premium experience with the performance they need, at a more affordable price point."

    With all-flash solid-state disk storage, the UX303 offers not only a 360 degree ultra-fast computing experience, but also battery life that goes up to 7 hours on a single charge. Ultrabooks are made for users on-the-go, and the new UX303LA and UX303LN are the perfect devices that gets that job done and will never slow the user down.
