Pros

  • Great battery life
  • Thin and light SSD
  • Intel Skylake processor
  • Full-HD matte display

Cons

  • RAM cannot be upgraded
  • No full size HDMI port
  • No backlit keyboard

Bottom Line

The ASUS ZenBook UX305UA AS51 offers users a thin and light laptop that can easily be carried on a daily basis. But the RAM cannot be upgraded and you will have to settle for the installed 8GB of memory.


The ASUS ZenBook UX305UA AS51 is a bestselling 13.3-inch laptop that has been praised for its 6th generation Intel Core i5 processor, thin and light design, crisp IPS display, super fast solid state drive and for its great battery life. But the RAM is soldered to the mainboard, which means that you are stuck with the 8GB of installed memory. You also don’t get a backlit keyboard which is a bit disappointing for those who often work in lower light conditions. But with its compact and lightweight design, and 10 hours of battery life, the ASUS ZenBook UX305UA AS-51 makes for a great travel friendly laptop.

    Asus’ Zenbook series has been on a roll as of late, led by the Zenbook UX305CA, an excellent, affordable ultrabook that won our Editor’s Choice award. Our one small complaint was with its performance, as the UX305CA has a Core M processor – less powerful than a standard Core i3, i5, i7. So we were excited when Asus announced its new UX305UA with a Core i5-6200U.
