At 13.3" in size it still seems odd to use a 3200x1800 display, but that is why scaling is important; especially for aged eyes.  The model of UX305CA that The Inquirer reviewed is running on a Skylake based Core M3-6Y30 clocked at 900MHz, 8B RAM and a 128GB SSD with other models available for those that wish upgraded components.  The Inquirer ran into a few small issues with the OS and you cannot expect the laptop to handle demanding tasks but for browsing and productivity it had no issues.  As well, the battery lasted over 9 hours during usage, not bad for a device weighing 1.2kg (2.65lbs).

"From the ports to processor to the operating system, this refresh has been subject to a rather diverse mix of changes, the biggest being the addition of a QHD+ resolution screen, despite the price staying level with the original FHD model."

Good battery life for a UHD screen but I'd still rather have a 1080P display with 30-40% more battery life.

Agreed!

For years most laptops had crappy 1366x768 screens.

But now all the rage is crazy 3200x1800 screens. Ahhhh!!

We seem to have skipped over good ol' 1080p which is still a great resolution for this particular screen size as well as for battery life.

This is the device I recommend to people at work who want a good machine that isn't too expensive.
