The 13.3" ZenBook UX306UA Notebook from Asus is a thin and light notebook built with a powerful battery so you'll be able to work and play throughout the day, wherever you go. Powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor and 8GB of 1866 MHz DDR3L RAM, the ZenBook UX306 lets you efficiently multitask as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When you need more performance, the CPU can reach up to 3.1 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology.

Its 13.3" display, driven by integrated Intel HD graphics, has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD screen resolution so you'll be able to enjoy crisp and clear HD content. It also uses a wide viewing angle display with a wide color gamut to deliver accurate and vivid visuals even at unconventional viewing angles. Furthermore, its compact Mini-HDMI port will let you connect an external display for enhanced multitasking capabilities.

For storage, this system is equipped with a 512GB SATA III SSD. SSDs are constructed without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than a traditional hard drive. You'll be able to access files quicker, load programs and games faster, as well as boot up in seconds. Should you run out of room, you can connect external storage devices using its USB ports and SD card reader, which can also be used to quickly transfer files from your mobile devices. The ZenBook UX306 also features a USB Type-C port that has a reversible interface so there's no wrong way to plug in the cable.

Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi and free up your USB ports by pairing compatible wireless peripherals with Bluetooth 4.1 technology. Other integrated features include speakers, microphones, a webcam, a backlit keyboard, and a 3.5 mm microphone and headphone combo jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

12 Hour Battery Life
The ZenBook UX306's powerful battery and intelligent power management enables it to last up to 12 hours of use even with Wi-Fi connected, so you'll be able to work or play all day long.
802.11ac Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.1
Enjoy a speedy Internet connection, up to 867 Mbps, with 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Furthermore, pair compatible wireless peripherals and free up USB ports with Bluetooth 4.1 technology.
ASUS Splendid Technology
ASUS Splendid Technology provides you with four different viewing modes to deliver vivid and accurate colors for watching videos and movies, playing games, or browsing photos. These modes include: normal mode, eye care mode, manual mode, and vivid mode.
ASUS IceCool
ASUS IceCool technology keeps the area where your palm rests cool for a more comfortable and relaxing typing experience.
Touch & Type
The touchpad on the ZenBook UX306 incorporates ASUS Smart Gesture technology, which provides you with a more intuitive, natural, and accurate tracking experience. Its keyboard is backlit and features chiclet-style scissor switch keys with a 1.5 mm key travel distance for a solid and comfortable typing experience. Furthermore, the raised and contoured design helps to reduce typing strain and improves comfort.
ASUS SonicMaster
ASUS SonicMaster uses a combination of software and hardware to deliver deep rich bass and crystal-clear vocals. With the software, you'll be able to manually control your audio settings or switch through five differently optimized preset modes to fit your needs. They include: music, movies, gaming, recording, and speech.
ASUS WebStorage
When you buy a ZenBook, you'll also get 16GB of ASUS WebStorage space free for one year so you'll be able to easily store, share, and sync your files wherever you go.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
