ASUS’ ultra slim ZenBook UX305 now available for purchase

ASUS sometimes really takes its time before putting an already announced product to market. Sometimes, it's almost a miracle if it does, like some of its more interesting devices. But for those who were taken by the ZenBook UX305 last IFA 2014, you're in luck because ASUS has finally launched the ultrabook in the US market. And this time, the 13-inch laptop with a QHD screen has a lot more details to share and a price tag to go along with it.

Surface Pro 3 has MacBook Air in sights with attack ad trio

Microsoft hasn't been shy in calling out Apple in recent months, pitting Cortana against Siri in a recent advert, while calling out the MacBook Air from the get-go with its Surface Pro 3 launch.

Acer C720 Chromebook taps Haswell and SSD for 8hr battery

It's obviously a week for Chromebooks, with Acer's new C720 Chromebook joining HP's Chromebook11 offering cloud-centric mobile computing, this time at the even lower price of $249.99.

ASUS Zenbook Infinity wraps super-skinny ultrabook in Gorilla Glass 3

Once upon a time, glass was a fragile thing; now, thanks to toughening tech, ASUS can splash a slab of the stuff across the top of its new Zenbook Infinity notebook. Topped by a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3, the same toughened material as we're used to seeing fronting smartphones and tablets, the Zenbook Infinity uses that extra rigidity and strength to drop a dress size, metaphorically speaking, and trim things down to just 15.5mm at its thickest.
