ASUS Reveal Zenbook UX301 13.3 Inch Notebook With WUXGA 1440p Display

/ 3 years ago


With the Windows notebook market relatively stagnant in terms of bringing screen resolutions forward, ASUS are looking to buck the trend with their 2560 x 1440 WUXGA display on the 13.3 inch Zenbook UX301. Typically on notebooks we will see a 1366 x 768 display if relatively affordable, 1920 x1080 when more premium and occasionally 1600 x 900 if looking for a compromise in between the two. Rarely do we ever see a display as high resolution as 2560 x 1440 and so ASUS are really catering to that demand.

The ASUS Zenbook UX301 features a 10 point touch screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The notebook from ASUS uses a 2560 x 1440 resolution giving an approximate PPI of 220, something rarely seen on notebooks. The UX301 is just 15.5mm thick when closed and will boast a Haswell Core i7 processor as well as ASUS SonicMaster audio and 802.11ac WiFi. ASUS have made a little teaser video about this upcoming notebook which you can check below:

Pricing and availability is still TBA.

    It’s funny how most people are enamoured with high res screens (that’s what sells phones, TV’s etc. to hell with the specs). Until pretty recently we all used 640X480 and no one complained.
