Asus Zenbook Pro UX550VE review

 

The Asus ZenBook Pro UX550VE enjoys some high-powered components and sports an elegant chassis.

Solid combination of productivity and gaming performance ; Excellent build quality and attractive design ; Superior and surprising audio ; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad ; Great thermal design

Chassis is a bit larger than some of the competition ; No 4K UHD option is a disappointment ; Moderate battery life

The Asus ZenBook Pro UX550VE is a great looking and robustly built full-size notebook that looks good in a coffee shop but won’t stand out in a corporate conference room. It’s reasonably portable with solid battery life, while it crushes even demanding...

Asus ZenBook Pro UX550VD (i7, GTX 1050, Full HD) Laptop Review

 

Elegant multimedia Laptop. The new Asus ZenBook Pro UX550 is a high-end multimedia notebook. You get powerful components in a great chassis, but the cooling solution struggles with the heat development of the components. Update: Second test sample,...

good aluminum case ; bright & matte IPS display ; very good speakers ; modern ports ; good system performance ; decent battery runtime ; notebook sleeve included

reduced CPU performance with simultaneous GPU load (like gaming) ; slight coil whining and electronic sounds from the PCIe-SSD ; fan control could be better ; really bad webcam (VGA)

Our general impression of the new ZenBook Pro UX550 is good. There is no doubt that Asus offers an appealing multimedia laptop with a nice case, decent display, good stamina and powerful components. The raw CPU performance is very good and Asus can...

The ZenBook Pro boasts premium performance, strong usability and a well-designed display – all for a typically steep asking price.
