Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 review

 

Seeing double.

Sturdy design ; ScreenPad has innovative uses ; Decent specifications

Average keyboard ; Inconsistent performance ; No SD card reader

While there’s a lot to marvel at in terms of the ZenBook Pro’s specifications, its performance is variable during daily tasks, which makes its high asking price seem unnecessary. It’s still capable of handling editing tasks as well as gaming, but...

Not only does the new Asus ZenBook Pro 15 for 2018 have impressive specs such as a Core i9 processor, but the ScreenPad turns the trackpad into a handy second display. Find out what we think in our in-depth first look from Computex 2018.

Asus ZenBook Pro 15 Laptop Review: One Notebook, Two Screens

 

The ZenBook Pro 15 is opulent. The laptop, ($2,299 as tested, $1,799 to start) is a lavish machine, both on the outside with its good looks and on the inside with its Intel Core i9 CPU. It's so extra that it's got a second display under its touchpad....

The Asus ZenBook Pro 15 is a strong performer with a beautiful design, but while the ScreenPad is innovative, it’s not fully baked and contributes to short battery life.

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 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 15 (UX580G)

 

The Asus ZenBook Pro is a very capable desktop-replacement laptop thanks to its Core i9 CPU and 15-inch 4K display, but its star attraction is a touchpad that doubles as a second screen.

Unique touchpad doubles as secondary display. Excellent processing power, thanks to Intel Core i9 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Thin and light for a 15.6-inch laptop. Thunderbolt 3 support. Brilliant 4K display.

Noisy fans. Low-quality VGA webcam. Relatively short battery life.

Bottom Line: The Asus ZenBook Pro is a very capable desktop-replacement laptop thanks to its Core i9 CPU and 15-inch 4K display, but its star attraction is a touchpad that doubles as a second screen.

ASUS Zenbook Pro 15: A futuristic, exciting, imperfect, flagship notebook

 

ASUS' Zenbook Pro 15 manages to find a deft balance between best-in-class notebook experience and experimental concept piece.

ScreenPad is a genuinely innovative feature ; Solid performance

ScreenPad functionality is a little limited ; Battery life could be better

Asus ZenBook Pro 15 goes for creatives with Intel Core i9, wider color gamut 4K display

 

If you like your laptops powerful and your screen's color accurate, this one's for you.
