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. Stunning, stylish and extremely scratch-resistant Making an Ultrabook™ as beautiful as Zenbook UX301 means doing a few things differently, beginning with its design. Zenbook UX301 is the first Ultrabook™ in the world with a lid protected by scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance™. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 has three times the scratch resistance of Gorilla Glass 2 and offers a 40% reduction in the number of highly visible scratches, with a 40% improvement in retained strength if a deep scratch does occur. Just 15.5mm thick and with a weight of just 1.38kg, Zenbook UX301 won't weight you down when you're on the move. Incredible image quality with a WQHD display We see the world in high-definition, so why use anything less on your Ultrabook™ Zenbook UX301 packs a stunning 2560 x 1440 pixels into its 13.3-inch display to give four times the resolution of an HD display and a razor sharp high-definition image for web pages, photos, video and games. More pixels means more space to work, too — so you can keep multiple windows open and in view at the same, and see more of a spreadsheet or the image your working on. Brighter images, true-to-life colors When we say Zenbook UX301 has a brilliant display, we really mean it. The LED backlight gives an image that's bright enough to see outdoors, while the anti-glare coating eliminates distracting reflections from overhead lighting indoors. With an incredible contrast of 800:1 and 72% color reproduction with 16.7 million colors, IPS display technology delivers pure whites, deep blacks and colors so true to life, looking at a photograph is like looking at the real thing. 178-degree viewing angles mean you always get the perfect view of the screen, too — even if viewing conditions are anything but. Video calls in crystal clarity Zenbook UX301 is the ideal travelling companion, in more ways than one. The built-in 720p HD camera with 30fsp video recording means you can keep in touch with family and friends via crystal-clear video calls, and the high-sensitivity image sensor gives great image quality, even in less than perfect light. Accessorize in style Zenbook UX301 is complemented by a set of accessories designed to make the most of its ultra-portable design and ultra-powerful performance. A stylish and hardwearing slipcase helps keep Zenbook UX301 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 that for 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 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. Incredible Performance The power and performance you need Zenbook UX301 is a high-performance Ultrabook™ in every sense.

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.

Music, movies and games sound so good on Zenbook UX301, you won't believe your ears.
