Editor's comments:
  • Asus ZenBook Pro 15 is a high-end and high-performance laptop targeting professional users such as programmers, graphic desigers etc.
  • Although high-performance, not suitable for usage as makeshift server because the core offerings are focusing on front-end user experience such as the screenpad which can be toggled between touchscreen mode and touchpad mode for better laptop control and multitasking- the touchscreen mode mimics a miniature smartphone.
  • A slim and elegant powerhouse laptop serving the high specifications of computing power, gaming-grade graphics, audio and even a touch screen monitor.
  • No specific mention of cooling system.
