Asus launched its latest line-up of notebooks powered by 6th generation Intel Core processors and already running on Windows 10.
Asus popularized the notebook line-up, which include the high-end ZenBook Ultrabook, K Series laptops, ROG (Republic of Gamers) gaming laptops, Vivo Books, and the Transformer 2-in-1 devices or hybrid laptops that transform into tablets.
New Asus ZenBooks for 2015 include the ZenBook Pro UX501, which still has the slim aluminum chassis with spun-metal finish. As an Ultrabook, it only measures 20.6 mm thin.
For the premium effect, highlights of its design include brushed metal surfaces and diamond-cut chamfers on the edges and the keyboard surround is enhanced with a stylish laser-engraved ripple-effect pattern.
The ZenBook Pro UX501 has a 15.6-inch VisualMaster multi-touch display with a pin-sharp 4K/UHD 3860 x 2160 resolution — four times higher than Full HD — and an incredible pixel density of 282PPI for stunningly-detailed and lifelike images.
IPS technology with wide 178-degree viewing angles ensures that colors and contrast are not degraded from any viewing position.
It also has high-performance components including a powerful quad-core 6th generation Intel Core processor, gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB DDR5 graphics and the world’s fastest 256GB PCI Express (PCIe®) x4 SSD.
Battery life for this Ultrabook is more than six hours from its high-capacity 96Wh lithium-polymer battery.
Another ZenBook, the lower-priced version with similar design and form factor, was also launched.
The ZenBook UX305LA is a 13.3-inch Full HH laptop that measures just 12.3mm thin.
The new Ultrabook already features 6th generation Intel Core i5 processor for seamless multitasking, and features a lightning-fast up to 512GB solid-state drive (SSD). The crisp, vibrant and stunningly-detailed 13.3-inch display has an up to FHD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels.
The ZenBook UX305 is available in a sophisticated new Gold color with ZenBook’s signature spun-metal finish, or a silky-smooth Ceramic Alloy shade.
New Asus K Series Laptops
Though in the category of affordable laptops, the ASUS K555LB already features solid build quality and aluminum design with crafted lines for a premium feel.
The laptop has brushed-aluminum top cover finished in black and also a sandblasted palm-rest.
The ASUS K555LB is powered by 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor for fast and responsive multi-tasking computing; and can be specked with up to NVIDIA GeForce GT 940M graphics with Microsoft DirectX 11 for fast and fluid gaming visuals and movie playback as well. It also features a 15-inch LED-backlit, 4k QHD panel.
Asus proprietary innovations found in the ASUS K555LB include the ASUS IceCool technology, a unique internal component layout to address palm-rest heating issues. This keeps palm-rest surface temperatures between 28 and 35 degrees Celsius, significantly lower than body temperature so users stay cool and comfortable.
The 15-inch K555LB also has an exclusive dual cooling system design — an intelligent thermal solution that is both efficient and silent, ensuring users enjoy a comfortable computing environment.
Asus also launched a new X Series, which include the new value-packed with all the essentials X555UB.
