Asus' Zenbook UX305 is one of our favorite thin-and-light notebooks out there. Its $699 price tag gets you an aluminum body, a 1080p IPS screen, and a 256GB SSD. Asus now has a version of the UX305 with a Skylake CPU on board called the UX305C. For that same $699 price, the UX305C adds a Core m3-6Y30 chip in place of the Broadwell processor. The 6Y30 offers two cores and four threads running at 900MHz base and 2.2GHz turbo speeds, all in a 4.5W thermal envelope.
Asus has offered UX305s with higher-resolution screens in the past as special editions, and that 3200x1800 screen is now a regular option on the UX305C for an extra $100. The Broadwell-based version will stay in the lineup for the moment as the UX305F, and it's selling for $640 right now.
