Have you ever seen such a gorgeous piece of kit? Oh, wait, yes, there are quite a few stunners out there (like the RoG Tytan which still makes me dribble happily at the sight) but as a work horse with plenty of power and portability, the ASUS Zenbook UX301 is simply beautiful.

ASUS Zenbook UX301

The laptop boasts a 13.3 inch screen with the latest of Intel’s fourth generation processors and is wrapped in Gorilla Glass 3. Yes, you read that right. The entire laptop is surrounded by scratch and shatter resistant glass and gleams like a lighthouse on a stormy night. Got to love those metaphors…

Gorilla Glass 3 is described as being even more resistant to scratches and usage damage than ever before. It has three times the resistance of Gorilla Glass 2 and it has a 40% reduction in the visibility of scratches with a 40% improvement in retained strength if there is a deep scratch. So that’s pretty cool.

The operating system placed within is the new and improved Windows 8.1 so you get to enjoy the adjustments and repairs to issues that plagued the initial Windows 8 install. The screen resolution is one of the other huge reveals about the ASUS Zenbook UX301 – 2560×1440. Hey? That’s a resolution and a half right there. You also get a super 178 degree viewing angle (which really makes a difference) and the screen offers 10-point multitouch for extra oomph and manoeuvrability.


Alongside the glossy design of the Zenbook UX301 – reminiscent of the supermodels of the 80s with its slender and sparkly looks – you get some features that make it a great choice for the business. You will not find stuttering or staggering performance thanks to the option to choose between the i5 or i7 processors.

The UX301 has 802.11ac Wi-Fi, USB 3.0, Bluetooh 4.0, backlit keyboard, awesome Nvidia GeForce GT 730M graphics and ASUS SonicMaster technology. You can even choose a shiny, sparkly and glossy colour all for yourself – Moonstone white (awesome) or Sapphire Blue (also awesome).
