Even though the UX301L is a part of the Zenbook range, it is visually a different model when compared with earlier Zenbooks. It is a dark blue with a metallic finish lid and glass covered for an additional amount of beauty. Its attractive style makes an excellent first impression and draws in lots of attention.

It is small, sleek, lightweight and mobile at 2.6 lbs weight and 0.6” thickness. The battery lasts as much as 8 hours in regular usage, so you're able to take it along with you and use it throughout the day.

This ultrabook includes 2 x USB 3.0 ports for up to ten times faster data transfers and has Bluetooth to wirelessly link to other devices. A mini-HDMI out, a media card reader, a headphone/microphone jack, VGA and Ethernet ports are also what you will find on this ultra slim notebook.

Conclusion: Equipped by the 4th generation Intel i7 processor, 8GB memory and a 256 GB of solid state drive, the stylish, sleek and lightweight ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T is a brilliant premium quality powerhouse of an ultrabook with vivid 2560x1440 pixel resolution screen and Sonic Master audio system. If you can afford it and are disappointed with how other ultrabooks have to give up on features or something in some way, this really is an outstanding notebook.
