Ultrabooks ASUS Zenbook always had an elegant slim body, but the thirteen-inch model ASUS Zenbook UX305F in this indicator is knocked out to the obvious leaders. The thickness of the case of this laptop is almost a millimeter less than the new MacBook Air. And this despite the fact that the latter refers to the 12-inch models, while the hero of our review boasts a diagonal of the display of thirteen inches. But the mass is almost three hundred grams more, but everything is clear – you can not fool physics. However, the extra weight favored the characteristics of the ultrabook, and along with the diagonal of the display, enlarged to 13.3 inches, the device also received a sufficiently large battery.
The novelty comes in a small box of very dense cardboard, decorated in dark tones with a predominance of black. Inside the box in soft foam inserts, the laptop and accessories are carefully packed:
- power adapter with a non-removable power cable;
- the case-folder;
- napkin for wiping the screen;
- short adapter USB↔RJ-45;
- a brief guide to getting started.

Model ASUS Zenbook UX305F is available in several versions, differing in the processor, the size of the solid-state drive and the display. The latter may have a resolution of either QHD + (3200 × 1080) or FHD (1920 × 1080) as in our case.
At the heart of the new ultrabook is the Intel Broadwell-Y platform with a dual-core Intel Core M-5Y71 processor running at a base clock speed of 1.2 GHz and increasing in Turbo Boost mode to 2.9 GHz. The processor is produced using 14-nanometer technology and differs by an extremely low heat-carrier TDP of 4.5 W. Thanks to this, the entire SoC Broadwell-Y series is designed primarily for tablets. Well, their use in ultrabukah allows you to significantly reduce the thickness of the body by saving on the dimensions of the cooling system, which we can observe in the case of the ASUS Zenbook UX305F. It should be noted that this ultrabook is also produced with a less efficient Intel Core M-5Y10 processor running at a base clock frequency of 0.8 GHz, which can be increased to 2.0 GHz in Turbo Boost mode.
