ASUS has launched its first premium Windows 10-based laptop under its flagship ZenBook portfolio. Named as UX305LA, the Ultrabook runs on Microsoft's latest operating system and will be available in black, white and gold colour options.

The ultraportable laptop has been launched with Intel Core i7 processor, but ASUS has announced to release another Intel Core i5 version later this year.

ASUS ZenBook UX305LA boasts 8GB RAM and comes powered with the latest 5th-generation Intel Core i7 processor. The Ultrabook also packs a high-speed 512GB SSD storage that is six times faster than a conventional hard disk. It also packs a 13.3-inch QHD display with 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution.

ZenBook UX305LA also features ASUS Splendid technology which promises vivid and accurate colours by automatically fine tuning display settings to optimise all kinds of images.

As far as connectivity is concerned, Ultrabook comes with necessary USB 3.0 ports. ZenBook UX305LA also features home baked fanless technology ASUS thermal management, so it is fast yet completely silent and remains cool.

Peter Chang, regional head of south Asia and managing director for Asus India said, "The UX305LA is a perfect balance of great looks and functionality which delivers a powerful performance with the Windows 10 combination."

"The Indian consumers are increasingly moving towards ultra-portable products and the featherweight ZenBook UX305LA is a real performer that redefines this segment with its svelte design. It is one of the most affordable products in this category and we truly believe that it deserves a top spot in the festive shopping list of the Indian consumers," he said.

ASUS ZenBook UX305LA will be available from October 15 at a starting price of Rs 97,990 across all Asus Exclusive Stores and online retailers.
