This year, is 4 years old since flying through the clouds and keeping you up to date with the latest aeronautical information. At the same time, it is 4 years since I travel more, in the country and abroad, on vacation or in the interest of business. In the 4 years of, I have learned to organize myself better, to do my luggage better, to manage my time with use and to be more flexible on trips and in daily life.

Weekend zen with ASUS Zenbook

All this time, I can say that every trip was unique in its own way, even if we talk about traveling to the same destinations. Travel helps us to evolve, to discover ourselves and to discover. The journey makes us more tolerant, more calculated and more careful with ourselves and others and even more disciplined.

Being a traveler, I like to be flexible and move easily. So luggage is essential and it matters a lot how I prepare it. When it comes to air travel, the more I have to pay attention to what I put in my luggage, my size and my weight. And how my travels are not missing NO gadgets, I've always been looking to optimize my techtravel kit.

Sorin was with ASUS UX305

But let me not prolong it and return to the title. At the end of January, at the invitation of ASUS Romania, I participated in a short very zen weekend trip. The place chosen was in line with the zenith - Atra Guesthouse. Traveling colleague was an ultrabook ASUS Zenbook UX305. The technological kit was completed by a smartphone ASUS Zenfone Selfie.

Just with these 2 gadgets, I can say I had a Zen weekend, but productive at the same time. I wrote articles on the site, I could process the photos taken with the phone, I documented myself, I relaxed and I worked in a quiet environment. When technology and nature are on your side, it looks like fingers are on the keyboard and inspiration is quite different.

I do things with passion and pleasure and I have a word: “I relax when I work. And I work when I relax„. That's exactly what happened on the Zen weekend. On other trips, when I went on the road with my 3.5 Kg and 15.6 inch laptop, things didn't go so smoothly and it didn't seem to attract me to do it constantly. As much as I'd like to, it's awkward to carry a 3.5kg laptop.


Give ASUS UX305 (click for technical details) weigh a little over 1 kilogramHas 13.3 inch, it comes in different configurations (mine came with an Intel Core M processor, 8 GB RAM and 128GB storage flash) and proved to be an ideal partner in our movement. I don't think I'm exaggerating if I say it's the best ultrabook I've tested lately. And it wasn't a lab test, it was a practice test. I have a habit "to stress”Very much any laptop, to run complex applications, to open dozens of tabs in the browser and to do photo / video processing. Chrome can't wait to load all "gigabaiţii”Free, and the UX305 has enough.

ASUS Zenbook UX305 he was trustworthy and did well in all my zen weekend work and not only that. In addition to its small size (324 x 12.3 x 226 mm), weight of only 1.2 Kg and computing power, the ASUS Zenbook UX305 also boasts a range of autonomy. "My colleague" lasted without an outlet for 5 to 16 hours. It matters how you use it and the applications run, but with confidence and tested, the battery of an ASUS UX305 offers an average autonomy of 8 hours.

ASUS UX305 for a juice

The 13.3 inch screen is anti-glare, LED and Full HD. Going beyond specifications and figures, I can say that the image offered is pleasing to the eye. It didn't get me tired, it didn't bother me with a certain hue, but it was harder for me to process the photo because I didn't calibrate the colors. It was a pleasure to button it. I think it was the most productive weekend in 2016 :).

And the connection is fine. ASUS UX305 Comes equipped with 3 3.0 USB ports, audio output, micro HDMI output and an SD card reader. Anything else?

Conclusions and price

For the passenger in me, the ASUS UX305 is enough. I tried to look for flaws in him, to put obstacles in his way, but I didn't succeed. I declare open: the ASUS ZenBook UX305 ultrabook is ideal for Zen travel. The finishes are pleasant to the touch. The housing is made of aluminum, giving it strength.

It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny. You can find it in eMAG in several configurations, and prices are between 4000 and 6000 lei.

    Hello. Given the prize, many say about ASUS and it does. My opinion is that the MacBook is a lot over ASUS but the price selects the customers. Now, it is possible because of the comment to be excluded from winning the prize, but that I consider !! Luck

    1. Sorin Rusi says

      The competition ended yesterday. Thanks for the comments and opinions are shared. Price matters, for the most part. But to know that another factor depends on the operating system, the ecosystem and the quality of the product itself.
