ZenBook Pro 15 review (2018): The touchscreen touchpad is no gimmick

 

The ZenBook Pro can go toe-to-toe with the MacBook Pro when it comes to performance. And the much-hyped ScreenPad can actually be more useful than Apple's TouchBar. Still, poor battery life holds the entire system back, and we wish the ScreenPad...

ScreenPad can be genuinely useful ; Gorgeous display with accurate colors ; Speedy performance

Sub-par battery life ; No full-sized SD card slot ; ScreenPad needs more apps and stability

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW review

 

Crushing performance at a fair price comes with a few catches in Asus' UX501.

There’s a lot to like about the Asus Zenbook UX501VW-DS71T. The laptop is a real bruiser, meeting the competition toe-to-toe and coming out the winner as often as not, despite a price tag that’s hundreds less than similar competitors from Apple and...

Asus ZenBook Pro 15 review: A second screen under your fingers

 

The touchpad-turned-touchscreen on the Asus ZenBook 15 is less gimmicky than it seems, but still not a must-have.

The experimental second screen in the touchpad actually works, as both a display and a touchpad. The Core i9 CPU, Nvidia 1050Ti GPU and 4K display all add up to a powerful machine.

The ScreenPad display is clever, but it's hard to see how it would actually make life easier or improve productivity. Battery life is short.

The touchscreen touchpad in the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 is a fun party trick, but doesn't yet make the case that it's something you actually need.

A screen in your trackpad is more useful than you think

 

But it doesn't make the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 a good computer.

ScreenPad is cool and works well ; Comfortable keyboard ; Bright 4K display ; Windows Hello fingerprint scanner

Greasy, flexible chassis ; Terrible battery life ; Poor thermal management ; Expensive

But it doesn’t make the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 a good computer

Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW review: Killer specs and pricing, offset by small flaws

 

In the world of premium 15-inch notebooks, the Zenbook Pro stands out by offering performance parts at a price that's unmatched by its competitors. Granted, there are a few trade-offs.

Great overall performance ; Incredible value ; Comfortable keyboard

Fit and finish issues ; Speakers are surprisingly weak ; Middling battery life

On paper, the Zenbook Pro is an incredible deal. It features some extremely high-end parts, yet is amazingly affordable compared to its competitors.

Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW-DS71T

 

The Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW-DS71T is an excellent desktop-replacement laptop with a fast SSD and strong performance, and it costs less than much of the competition.

Sleek design. Long battery life. Strong productivity performance. Fast PCIe SSD. Vivid 4K screen. USB-C with Thunderbolt port.

Heavy. Lots of bloatware.

Conclusions The Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW-DS71T is a high-end desktop replacement with a crisp 4K screen, plenty of networking options, best-in-class battery life, and strong performance. It doesn't stand out like last year's model did at the time, in...

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501J-DS71T

 

The Asus Zenbook Pro UX501J-DS71T is a premium desktop-replacement laptop that not only offers category-leading performance in most tests, but does so for a very affordable price.

Sleek, stylish design. Brilliant 4K display. Thunderbolt support. Category-leading performance, thanks to Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M graphics card. Speedy PCIe-connected solid-state drive.

Bloatware. Middling battery life in testing.

Conclusion The Asus Zenbook Pro UX501J-DS71T is prime example of how premium hardware can impact the price of a system. Even a few months ago, similarly equipped laptops cost hundreds of dollars more, due in no small part to the cost of relatively rare...

ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501JW Review: Forget About the MacBook Pro

 

If you need a 15-inch laptop with the power to edit 4K video then walk right past the Apple Store and look at the ZenBook Pro from ASUS. Read on to see if $1700 buys more than a MacBook Pro.

Comes with everything a premium laptop needs ; Fantastic 4K touchscreen for indoor use ; Excellent performance for the money

Unimpressive touchpad ; Poor screen visibility outdoors ; Weak speakers with lackluster sound
