The Asus Zenbook UX305 is the latest ultrabook from Asus, packing the latest Intel M Series processors and an ultra high-definition display into a skinny, aluminium body.

There's no word on pricing or availability yet, but you can bet it won't be cheap when it goes on sale early next year.

The 13.3-inch display has a 3,200x1,800-pixel resolution which should make even tiny details pin sharp.

It'll be available in both touch and non-touch versions. I recommend going for the touchscreen if you want to have an easier time swiping around the Windows 8 interface.

The usual lineup of ports are squashed into those skinny edges.

The wide keys seemed comfortable to type on.

And there's a sizeable trackpad if you don't want to swipe at the screen.
