Asus has done a great job with this soft reboot of the Zenbook 15 Pro. While the connectivity could definitely be upgraded, the overall performance and battery life are excellent. This is a fantastic laptop for creators.
Asus Zenbook Pro 15 (AMD)From $1399.00
In recent years the Asus Zenbook Pro 15 has suffered from limited performance due to poorly performing Intel CPU’s. They have now created a model with the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, an ultra efficient 8-core CPU. This processor is paired with a 96WHr battery and Nvidia RTX 3050Ti dedicated graphics. All these components fit neatly into a .71″, 4.41lbs thin and light package.
These specs alone would be enough, but the new Zenbook also includes a 400 nit OLED touch screen. When you add it all up this may be the best Windows laptop for creators. Is the Zenbook ready to take on the XPS 15? Check out the video for more details.
