Bottom Line

With the main focus by Asus on this machine being portability users might struggle slightly with more high end applications. That being said this is still a fantastic portable and reliable laptop.

The ASUS Zenbook UX305FA-ASM1 is a popular 2015 13.3-inch ultrabook that received positive reviews for its thin and light aluminum body, Full-HD matte screen, long battery life, fanless design, and a comfortable keyboard and touchpad. However, its performance is not suited for high-end work, its keyboard is not backlit and the speakers are relatively quiet. If you want an ultraslim laptop with an all-day battery life for mainstream tasks and office work, the UX305FA-ASM1 offers great value for money.
