We are roaming around the CeBIT 2015 show floor looking at the latest and greatest from some of the biggest laptop manufacturers out there. Let’s hurdle around ASUS’ new high-end Intel Core M laptop and see if it’s worth all the hype ASUS is making.
This device looks and feels great, but it is set to go up against devices like the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and Apple’s new MacBook. Both of these laptops are very popular, and we know Apple will sell many of its new laptops. Can ASUS compete? Let’s jump into this hands-on post and find out.

The laptop performs as it should. It’s not too powerful, but it will be a great device for everyday usage and multimedia. The only complaint we really have so far is that the speaker seems to offer very low quality audio. Other than that, it is a pretty awesome machine.
The ASUS Zenbook UX305 os built amazingly, with a metal body and a very solid construction. It feels surprisingly good for a device as thin as this one, measuring in at only 12.3 mm. Of course, this is no MacBook thinness, but it’s not significantly thicker.
Oh, and don’t try to touch the screen, which is something we always do. This device doesn’t have a touchscreen. Ont he other hand, it does have a very good keyboard and a nice trackpad. They both work like a charm. Let’s just take a look at it together, shall we?
