Wooo….Today we are going to talk about a super cool laptop, ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW-DS71T, which is a 15″ Ultra-HD 4K Touchscreen laptop highlights an Intel Skylake Core i7-6700HQ 2.6 GHz Quad-core CPU (turbo to 3.5GHz), 16GB DDR4 RAM, 512 GB NVMe Solid State Drive (PCIeGen3 x4), 15.6-Inch Touch IPS 4K Ultra-HD display with 3840 by 2160 resolution, and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M graphics with 2G GDDR5 VRAM. Of course, it has become a hot new released touchscreen laptop at Amazon (Price: $1,498.98 & FREE Shipping), more and more people are choosing it, so I think I'd better share it with you guys today.
The ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW-DS71T also comes with 2 -in-1 card reader ( SD/ SDXC), 1.2MP HD Web Camera, Dual-band 802.11ac, Built-in Bluetooth™ V4.0, Built-in 2 Speaker(s) And Array Microphone, SonicMaster Premium, and 6-Cell 96 Whrs Polymer Battery. The laptop is running on Windows 10 (64bit) operating system. Needless to say, this is one of the coolest touchscreen laptops we've ever seen, the price is decent, I believe it could be an ideal choice for those who need a high quality laptop.
On the 15-inch ZenBook Pro, Asus takes a simple, almost stately approach to design. The machine features an all-aluminum chassis topped by the company's signature concentric ring finish on the metallic gray lid, with subtle, polished edges on the sides. When you pry open the lid, there are more concentric rings set near the rear of the keyboard, and an ample, brushed metal deck where you can rest your palms.
With its 15.6-inch 3840 x 2160 UHD touch screen, the ZenBook Pro's display is ideal for photo and video editors who aren't wedded to Apple. Aside from a very subtle blue tint, both videos and pictures looked almost exactly the same on the ZenBook Pro's display as they did on my professionally calibrated NEC desktop monitor. I just wish the coating were less shiny, as I spent a little too much time staring back at myself.
Great deal for the specs! I bought this laptop to dual boot Ubuntu (Linux) as well as Windows 10. My personal use case is heavy duty software development — I also use it for DJing, music production, and the occasional game of Portal :) Note that this is a quad core machine that sucks a lot of power (has a 19V 6.32A power brick!). On moderate load, you'll get maybe 5 hours of battery life in both Windows and Ubuntu, I get maybe 2 or 3 when pushing the CPU. Remember this is meant to be a professional workstation. If you're working with things like SolidWorks/CAD, music/video production, software development, scientific computing, gaming or just like to have thousands of browser tabs open — well then this is the computer for you! If you need something with more stamina, can make it through an 8 hour flight, and are just doing PowerPoint, web browsing, watching videos, etc, I'd recommend going with a dual core i5 or i7 like in the Asus ZenBook UX303 which I was debating between. It's much more compact + lighter and will be better for travel — though less cores and RAM.
The construction quality and tactile feel of the ZenBook UX501 are excellent. Its design is clearly paying hommage to the MacBook Pro but stands on its own uniqueness. I love the design of the speakers behind the backlit keyboard — sound is decent but not amazing for a laptop. 4K IPS display is gorgeous. The spun metal casing is really lovely and reflects the light in interesting ways. I've had no problems with keyboard so far. It's sort of slightly stiff chiclet keyboard. My palm doesn't seem to hit the mousepad as others have claimed — I'm a touch typist though.
Well, what do you think about the ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW-DS71T 15-Inch Ultra-HD 4K Touchscreen Laptop?
