Asus updates Zenbook UX305 with a Skylake Core M CPU

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 3200×1800 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.

    My usage of the iPad Pro has not changed. I still use it as a tablet.

    Here are photos of the [url=http://i.imgur.com/MOHKu7F.png<]Apple keyboard[/url<] and the [url=https://i.imgur.com/cooHq9A.png<]Logitech keyboard[/url<]. Similar to the stability of a laptop they both provide a rock solid platform for the iPad Pro even at steep angles. I tried this today with a colleagues Surface Pro 4 and he was rather nervous when I had it on my lap (and that was with my legs giving the surface a flat surface to sit on). The problem I have with a surface on my lap is that I have to have the keyboard up super high on my thighs to get it to fit. It jams up my arms when I type. I don't have this problem with the iPad or a regular laptop.

    so then the ipad pro is too heavy to be a tablet, suggesting it’s really a laptop only.

    the ipad pro is a better “pro” tablet based on what? lack of apps? because you can hook it up to your macbook, enjoy the lag, and then draw on a full desktop studio? mkay.

    I’d agree the MBP is a better laptop than a sp4, it isn’t, however, a better hybrid. i don’t think anyone disagrees with you. your solution of an ipad pro and a mbp is also [i<] double the cost [/i<] of a surface pro. that's not insignificant. yeah, ipads don't have quality control issues. they've never had a problem. they've never had serious backlight bleed problems on ipads, or lines going across them. they've never had ghosting problems on the mini's either. they're not currently replacing the film on the screens. don't be ridiculous. all the OEM's have a few issues, apple and microsoft included.

    I’ll post an image of both Apple’s keyboard and the one from Logitech on my lap at a steep angle ASAP.

    I merely mentioned that the iPad Pro was lighter than a Surface Pro 4. It’s a no brainer that an iPad Air 2 is a more comfortable tablet to hold than an iPad Pro or a Surface Pro 4. My thoughts on that have not changed.

    Based on my usage the iPad is a better “Pro” tablet than the Surface Pro 4 and that my rMB is a better laptop than the Surface Pro 4. The quality issues that I have seen with the Surface Pro 2, Pro 3 and hear for the Surface Book inspire no confidence in the Surface lineup whatsoever.

    Oh, and misdirection is your speciality. Your cognitive difficulties may be a contributing factor to your misdirection skill.

    The keyboard is good? How would anyone know since NOBODY actually reviews it? It’s also highly unlikely, and you’re anything but unbiased. It’s an apple product, so despite a terrible design, it’s good? as for your picture from ars, there literally isn’t a single site that’s tested lapability. I don’t see how the ipad pro avoids that, excepting that it’s made worse since the screen is just leaning against the cover, and the angle isn’t adjustable. I’d love to see a picture, but i can’t find one, nor can i find a review that even [i<] mentions it. [/i<] Perhaps you can upload one, but please make sure to maintain the angle of his legs, since that's what makes his point. I'll assume the lack of an upload is a tacit agreement i'm right. It is slightly lighter than the surface pro 4, which i recall you saying in the past (with the sp3) was far too heavy to be a decent tablet, and that the air was the right weight. the pro is 60% heavier than the air, but suddenly it's manageable when it's almost the same weight as devices you previously derided for their weight? Surface book had/has some firmware issues, not that it's relevant (my sp2 has issues with win 10 that make it basically unusable, though i haven't checked in months to see if they're resolved). you LOVE to misdirect rather than address your STAGGERING cognitive dissonance. When another company does something it's terrible, when apple does the exact same thing (and in many cases worse) it's amazing. Gosh, EU, this is silly, even for you.

    The iPad Pro has a ton of quality apps. What I’m looking forward to is devs tweaking them to take advantage of the full list of multitasking features. iOS 9 is fantastic.

    As someone who loves quality Apple trackpads the thought of using a trackpad with an iOS device is laughable.

    Both the Logitech keyboard and the Apple keyboard are very good.

    The iPad Pro is the same weight of the original iPad and is lighter than the Surface Pro 4.

    If you want to talk subpar then you should direct your attention to the subpar [url=https://www.thurrott.com/podcasts/62580/what-the-tech-285-microsoft-surface-book-complaints<]Surface Book[/url<].

    • sweatshopking

    The iPad pro needs apps, better multitasking (using the 5 year old surface one design is terrible in almost 2016, most people say a trackpad, better pricing, and a better keyboard. The cpu, screen, and pencil (though charging that thing is an embarrassing joke of a design), seem good enough. The software, keyboard, and apparently weight and design need work.

    I’m with you on the 950. Competes well enough with the iphones and high end android, but nothing worth switching for, and certainly not going to sell. Basically the same phone as the 930/1520, as all the new android/ios models are basically rehashes with better specs. It will fail, and since they’re taking forever to get win32 apps wrapped into the store, the store will continue to have subpar offerings. I’ve been saying that for a while though. I’ll be holding on to my green 1520 for a long time.

    That doesn’t change any of the valid criticisms of the subpar iPad pro though.

    • sweatshopking
    • 7 years ago

    No, it doesn’t. There have been many different designs, and everyone one of them has been trashed, including numerous times by you. You’re making excuses, and I’m sure you FEEL fine using the device, and that gorilla arms on this product isn’t a problem, and I’m with you. The problem is when other people say the same thing as you about other devices you’re adamant they’re WRONG.

    The iPad has been evolving since 2010. The iPad Pro is ready. What the iPad Pro needs are more apps tailored to the iPad Pro. The App Store will deliver. The same cannot be said for the Windows Store. That thing has as much life in it as a Lumia 950 (now that is a panned device).

    • End User
    • 7 years ago

    I lean back when I’m using a surface with a keyboard hence gorilla arms. Removing the lower portion of the keyboard where the trackpad sits reduces the distance one has to reach as you can bring the touch enabled device much closer to your body. It makes a major difference.

    I’ve got a laptop with a gen 1 Core M. I’m very happy with it. Thin/light/quiet – an amazing combination.

    Performance of gen 1 Core M varied from laptop to laptop. Based on CineBench R15 my gen 1 Core M outperforms that which is in this UX305.

    • Andrew Lauritzen
    • 7 years ago

    I have to say… the sentiment has really turned around after all of the initial hating on Core M. I get the reasoning but I’m surprised to such a change in attitude so quickly.

    SKL Core M does look a fair bit better of course – which is unsurprising being Gen2 of that line – so it’ll be interesting to see how many folks decide that fanless is a better trade-off than more performance going forward.

    Of course others will lament this as a continued march to the bottom, but I see it more as an acceptable experience at increasingly lower power levels. That said you sort of hit a wall around this level until we come up with a more power-efficient way to do screens…

    you’ll also notice a complete lack of complaints about “gorilla arms”(which you yourself have made) and the fact this device is touchscreen only. When it’s MS it’s a terrible idea to have a touch screen and nobody wants it, when it’s apple, it’s not even mentioned. Makes you think about all the reviews which stated the MS band sucked as it wasn’t waterproof, but the apple watch has identical protection, but never even gets water protection mentioned.

    A hybrid, but the sp4 has the same m3 chip, and is fanless, also quite a bit more money. I agree, this is a good looking system for the price.

SURFACE IS GARBAGE CAN'T USE IT ON YOUR LAP F THIS CRAP, but suddenly with the ipad, IT DOESN'T MATTER. NOBODY MENTIONS IT, AND THERE IS PICTURE AFTER PICTURE OF PEOPLE USING IT ON A TABLE. Well done, guize. Also, THE WAY THE PENCIL CHARGES IS INSANE AND TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE, but no problem for these reviewers, having a sharp stick poke a solid foot out from the end or side of your devices is totally cool. WTF. THAT DESIGN IS MORONIC. I didn't see any reviews on typing speed on the keyboard either, and the Surfaces got all kinds of "CAN'T TYPE FAST ENOUGH DON'T BUY" reviews. Suddenly though, it doesn't matter. Seriously EU, even with the insane (and inane) pandering to apple the vast majority of those reviews say "it's pretty, but not capable enough at this stage". I'm glad you're happy with yours, but let's not pretend it's going to replace a pc. Because it isn't. Maybe one day, but not today.

    Skylake CoreM looks pretty good!

    But:

    [quote<]"The Bad: Mediocre trackpad. It doesn’t have to be this way."[/quote<] This is the reason why I had to return UX305. It was just erratic, randomly unresponsive, and overall bad. XPS13 has a significantly better touchpad.

    • UberGerbil
    • 7 years ago

    Yeah. “Bad proof is not proof,” certainly. Geekbench really should be ignored altogether. We need something like Linux ported to the iPad and compiled with exactly the same optimizations and libraries, and that used as the basis for running benchmarks (which themselves are compiled the same way). Anything short of that is, at best, misleading.

    • NeelyCam

    Saying that Geekbench is not an apples-apples comparison doesn’t mean “no proof will be enough”

    • NeelyCam
    • 7 years ago

    I got UX305 (for $600, because of Microsoftstore’s $100 coupon last black friday) but returned it because of touchpad responsiveness issues. Then I got XPS13, upgraded the SSD to 512GB, and have been happy with it.

    • ImSpartacus
    • 7 years ago

    The kind of user that is willing to tolerate a Core M CPU doesn’t really need much performance in the first place, so it doesn’t really matter.

    In reality, I imagine that Skylake is a decent uptick in performance, but it shouldn’t really matter in this use case.

    For the right price ($500?), I wouldn’t think twice about getting an older Broadwell UX305 if I had the need. It’s not like my internet browser magically requires more CPU cycles in 2016 compared to 2015 (or even before that, lol…).

The Zenbook handily out-performs the MacBook in most all categories. Of course you specifically called out the iPad Pro, but if you're at all interested in a decidedly closer "Apples-to-Asus" form factor comparison, the numbers are there. ([i<][u<]IF[/u<][/i<] you're interested. If you've already decided, well ...).

    The main downside is the CPU, I do a lot of production on the laptop so i5 is the minimum and duo to my laptop upgrade cycle.. the i7 is the only option I’ll go next… I don’t care about ODD I prefer more battery capacity for the i7… and also the small size, 15″ size is the best size for me..

    But still, ZenBook is already available in other sizes and spec., but sadly they still did not released a 15″ Skylake ZenBook yet

    Well, anyone getting a Core M for sustained performance is getting the wrong SKU anyway. For bursty use it should be satisfactory for most users (browsing, word processing, spreadsheets). Unfortunately, this means it’s also not good for gaming, but again, if you’re getting a Core M for gaming, I have to argue that you’re getting the wrong machine.

    The Yoga 3 Pro’s performance is unfortunately quite hampered by its poor cooling system. Per [url=http://www.anandtech.com/show/9117/analyzing-intel-core-m-performance<]Anandtech[/url<], it's only better under bursty loads, actually doing worse in more intensive sustained tasks than the old low-end Broadwell Core M UX305.

    • DairyCreamer

    I am mildly techy… I’m mostly looking for a business laptop. I wish I could find something with a solid discreet graphics card, but I think I’m pretty much falling for the ZenBook, especially a M$ Signature Edition version… I’d really like to have a bloatware free purchase.

    • Welch

    I can’t help but recommend this line of laptop to almost any user who wants a fast machine, great battery life, ect.

    I mean no fans, aluminum case, SSD, quad core, 10 hours of battery life, 1920×1080 or higher IPS, matte finish screen, USB 3.0 all around and HDMI out.

    The ONLY downside for some people and it has not been a killer for most is….. no optical drive…. who cares!!!

    I have to say though… I wish to see this series dropped to about the $599.99 range. With the i5 variant the UX305LA being only $749.99 it makes it hard to get the Core M when sometimes the difference is under $100 with sales. So with that said, the UX305LA is my favorite to recommend.

    The lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is currently [url=http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/lenovo/yoga-laptop-series/yoga-3-pro-laptop/<]$699 with ecoupon HOLIDAYWIN[/url<]. 13.3" 3200x1800 screen, Core M 5Y71, 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD. At those prices, I'm willing to forgive lenovo for Superfish (they've stopped bundling it and have released an uninstaller app for affected users. Incidentally, 2 friends have a recent lenovo, a Yoga 2 Pro and a Y40, and neither were affected by Superfish, according to the removal tool). EDIT: PS the Core M 5Y71 is a Broadwell part, but its speeds are 1.2/2.9 GHz, which is a lot faster than the 0.9/2.2 on the Skylake. That's one heck of a gap to close with IPC alone, though it's possible the Skylake can boost for longer before throttling. The GPU on the Skylake should be better than the Broadwell, though.

    He later clarified that he didn’t include Macs in that, of course…Which just digs him further into a hole, as it makes even less sense that an iPad Pro could do everything a Windows PC could but not what a Mac can. If it can replace one, it can pretty much replace both, or it can replace neither.

    Jobs did the same kind of thing, Tim is just a far less smooth salesmen.

    Question: [quote<]“I think if you’re looking at a PC, why would you buy a PC anymore? No really, why would you buy one?”, asks Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, who has just flown into Britain for the launch of the iPad Pro.[/quote<] Answer: Because this is a real computer and not a toy.
