Sometimes it is difficult to find powerful equipment with a lightweight design. Generally, gaming computers or computers with more powerful components tend to be heavier and thicker. But Asus has wanted to change this trend with the new Asus ZenBook Pro (UX550) . We are talking about a computer with a seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor, a 512 GB SSD hard drive and, most surprisingly, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics. All this included in a chassis less than 2 centimeters thick and less than 2 kilograms in weight. The Asus ZenBook Pro (UX550) is already on sale with a price of 1,750 euros. Let's review what this laptop offers us.
The first thing that strikes the new Asus ZenBook Pro is its design. The equipment is made of a solid piece of aluminum, which can be blue or black . The chassis features shiny diamond-cut edges and the well-known Zen-inspired concentric finish that decorates Asus' high-end equipment.
Regarding its size, the computer has a profile of 18.9 millimeters and 1.8 kg in weight . The screen is surrounded by an ultra-thin bezel, achieving a frame-to-screen ratio of 83%. And speaking of the screen, it is a 15.6-inch touch panel with NanoEdge LED technology . We can also choose between a Full HD or 4K UHD resolution, both with a 178-degree viewing angle.
And as we mentioned, despite its slim design, the Asus ZenBook Pro (UX550) includes a powerful team inside. First we have a quad-core Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor . This is accompanied by 16 GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM . We also have a high-end storage capacity, with no less than 512 GB SSD .
But perhaps the most striking thing about this laptop is its graphics. The Asus ZenBook Pro (UX550) is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card with 4 GB of GDDR5 video memory . And to accompany the graphical power, we also have a sound system with 4 ASUS SonicMaster Premium speakers with Harman Kardon certification.
Of course, we will not be short on connectivity either. ZenBook Pro includes two USB 3.1 Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 3, 2 USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an HDMI 1.4 port, and a microSD card reader .
In short, a light and thin device, with a range of up to 14 hours and quite powerful hardware. As we anticipated, the Asus ZenBook Pro (UX550) is already available in the market with a price of 1,750 euros .
