Asus outs svelte, aluminum Zenbook UX305 and the EeeBook, a $199 Chromebook killer

Asus Zenbook UX301LA review: a stylish 13.3-inch touchscreen Ultrabook

Price: �1439 inc VAT Rating: 7 With the Zenbook line, Asus has intentionally copied many design aspects of Apple’s MacBook Air, such as its familiar wedge shape, chiclet-style keys, surrounded by a smooth ceramic material, and roomy trackpad.
