Asus introduces the Zenbook UX301 and UX302 ultrabooks

Asus presents its two flagship models, Zenbook UX301 and UX302, which feature unique design with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection with Native Damage Resistance technology. Debuted at Computex 2013, the Zenbook UX301 and UX302 are the next generation of ultrabooks from the Zenbook line launched in 2011. Its distinctive Zenbook-inspired metallic design is enhanced with dazzling Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protectors.

Computers & Peripherals

Corning Gorilla Glass 3 boasts the same durability as Gorilla Glass 2, but the new NDR formula gives it three times the scratch resistance. In addition, scratches themselves, if they do appear, will be much less noticeable than on Gorilla Glass 2, and will have less effect on the overall durability of the protective coating.

The new Zenbook Series comes with a 13.3″ IPS display with 1920×1080 or 2560×1440 pixels, producing a wide 178° viewing angle. Its multi-touch interface is ideal for interacting with Windows 8 apps.

The new ultrabooks include a fourth-generation Intel Core processor with up to dual-core Core i7-4558U and optional SSD up to 512GB in RAID 0 . With Intel Iris integrated graphics or NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M discrete graphics with Optimus technology.

Featured interfaces on the new Zenbook models include 802 Wi-Fi.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 3.0.
