Asus Improves the Zenbook Lineup with Zenbook Pro 15

The new Zenbook Pro 15 laptop differentiates from other laptops through its specs, being the most unique product of the lineup.

There are other lower-end models of the new Zenbook Pro 15 as well, but they don’t stand a chance on the market. The new laptop has a hexacore Core i9 processor with a weight of just 4.1 pounds while lower-end laptops have only i7-8750H or i5-8300H processors. Moreover, it has an 18.9mm frame, a dedicated GTX 1050 GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory, 8 or 16GB RAM options, an SSD with up to 1TB capacity, Harman Kardon branded speakers and a calibrated 4K screen. As for accessories, you get four ports – two Thunderbolt 3 and two USB 3.1 Gen 2 –, a microSD card reader, a TRRS audio jack and one for charging.

The fact that the new gaming laptop has such a developed processor which doesn’t make the laptop bulky is an exception. An i9 processor in a laptop of such a small weight may cause problems regarding heat, but Asus has implemented three heat pipes and two fans enough to keep up with such high-end characteristics. However, the VGA camera and the 71 WH Li-Poly battery that Asus claims to last up until 9.5 hours of usage may spoil the image of Zenbook Pro 15 because they are regarded as rather weak in comparison with other specs.

Both lower-end laptops and the newest product use 15.6-inch IPS multitouch LCD screens with 100 percent AdobeRGB color space support in both 4K and 1080p. With Windows integrated, lower-end models of the original Zenbook Pro 15 and the newest laptop rarely have screen options with full-color spacing.

Regarding design, the Zenbook Pro 15’s sharpness is given by rose gold edges with a branded “Deep Dive Blue aluminum chassis.
