Meet the ASUS ZenBook Pro
The ASUS ZenBook Pro UX550 is the pinnacle of performance and class among laptops. Discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti graphics combine with a 7th. generation quad-core H-series Intel® Core™ i7 processor to provide all of the power needed for intensive tasks like video editing, while solid aluminum unibody construction and NanoEdge display make for an altogether luxurious experience.
The ZenBook Pro enjoys an incredibly slim profile, making it the ideal choice for life on the road. At 18.9 mm thin and 1.8 kg light, the ZenBook Pro can fit into your bag easily. Royal Blue and Matte Black color options seamlessly fit into your style, while the silver diamond-cut edging catches the eye. The classic spun-metal design catches the eye, and a new backlit logo really sets it apart.
Tucked inside the premium body of the ZenBook Pro is all of the power you need to take on serious work. Photo and video editing, 3D modeling, gaming and more are all within reach. In addition to an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics, 16 GB of lightning-fast DDR4 RAM and 1 TB of PCIe® x4 SSD storage are available. This provides desktop-class processing power no matter where you go. A key to keeping this whole system moving smoothly is a dual-fan cooling system. Three separate pipes guide heat away from processors so they can continue to run at peak loads smoothly.
A full range of inputs keeps the ZenBook Pro versatile. Transfer photos via the microSD memory card slot, extend your display to two extra 4K monitors over USB-C with Thunderbolt™ 3 support, or connect an external hard drive over USB 3.1. Top all of that off with a comfortable backlit keyboard, fingerprint scanner for secure login over Windows Hello, and a 73 Wh battery with up to 14 hours of battery life*, and you have the complete package. Ultimately, you’ll never be caught unprepared; the ZenBook Pro is fully-equipped to meet your daily challenges.
The 15.6-inch 4K NanoEdge display presents your digital world in crystal clarity. A super-slim 7.3 mm bezel leaves an 83% screen-to-body ratio. That means you get more display without adding bulk, and fewer distractions while working hard. 100% of the sRGB gamut is reproduced on the ZenBook Pro display, so you can rest assured that videos and photos will be faithful. Not only can you reach out and touch your work directly by hand, but a high-precision touchpad and support for the ASUS Pen provide all of the tools you need for the job.
A quad-speaker Harman Kardon array delivers finely tuned audio like no other laptop. The volume can reach two and a half times louder than the previous generation without any distortion, not to mention the frequency response range has been increased by 60%. Whether you’re enjoying music, playing games, or need faithful reproduction for the video you’re editing, the ZenBook Pro delivers immaculate audio.
