A stylish and hardwearing slipcase helps keep it ZENBOOK™ safe when you're on the move, while the multi-voltage power adapter is small enough to slip into a coat pocket. Also included is a USB Ethernet as a convenient backup when Wi-Fi isn't available, while Mini DisplayPort and Micro-HDMI ports means you can connect a desktop display with the minimum of fuss. Incredible Touch 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 With ZENBOOK™ UX301, reaching out to touch the screen is no longer an empty gesture.

Backlit keyboard for a better typing experience 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 the 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.

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.
