Take a look at the best that ASUS has to offer.
We've gathered up the latest and greatest laptops from ASUS available right now. There's a full range here, from top-of-the-line gaming laptops, to slim and portable ultrabooks, to high-value budget laptops. ASUS has a reputation for making top-class notebook PCs, and this lot is no exception.
Updated in February 2015 with a whole new ASUS lineup.
ASUS Zenbook UX305
The Zenbook UX305 provides ultrabook style without the often crazy price associated with the thin-and-light category. That's due in part to the decision to go with slightly less powerful internal hardware than the norm for a laptop like this, but that doesn't make it a bad choice.
It uses the latest generation Intel Core m processor, which also means fanless cooling and virtually silent operation. Add in up to 512GB of SSD storage, 8GB of RAM, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and around 10 hours of battery life — with your choice of a 1080p or Quad HD+ 13.3-inch display — and you've got a very enticing machine.
The UX305 weighs just 2.6lbs (1.2kg) making it perfect to take on the road, and its party piece is a Windows Hello compatible infrared camera. Oh, and its price. Starting at $699 for the 1080p model, it's really not to be grumbled at.
ASUS ROG G752
ASUS knows laptops and they know gaming, so it should be no surprise that the ASUS G752 is widely regarded as one of the finest gaming laptops money can buy. And the styling is wild.
Inside you'll finde an Intel Skylake Core i7 processor, specifically the 6820HK or 6700HQ, up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, NVIDIA GTX 980M graphics, up to 2TB of HDD storage or 512GB of NVMe SSD, a Blu-ray optical drive, Thunderbolt 3 USB-C and a Full HD matte display with G Sync.
You also get a backlit keyboard and some pretty interesting cooling, with ASUS's own 3D mobile Vapor Chamber keeping the temperature down.
With all of this remarkable hardware, you'd be thinking that the price might be pretty high. Except it's not; at least not in the grand scheme of the gaming laptop landscape. Prices start around $1,500, which is very reasonable for what you're getting here... so long as you're happy with a 17.3-inch laptop that weighs 8.8lbs.
ASUS Transformer Book T100HA
The Transformer Book T100HA is cheaper than most on this list. But, it can also boast of being a 2-in-1, so you get a tablet and a laptop for $300. It represents fantastic value for someone who wants a good experience without breaking the bank.
And you're getting quite a bit for your money, too. The 10.1-inch display is 1280x800 resolution, there's an Intel Atom x5 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of eMMC storage and battery life of around 12 hours. Not to mention the latest USB-C connector.
The freedom of having both a tablet and a laptop is something that's becoming more and more popular. The whole package together weighs only 2.38lbs, so it's perfect for those long days away from your desk without running away with your wallet.
ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501
If you're shooting for the high-end and you want the very best hardware, the Zenbook Pro is the one for you. There's almost nothing missing from this incredible machine, which also boasts a reasonable asking price all things considered.
You get a gorgeous 15.6-inch 4K display out front with a Skylake Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of PCIe storage and NVIDIA GTX960M graphics within. You've got USB 3.0, HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 USB-C support for super fast data and video output.
And all that within a sleek, relatively light metal chassis. At just 4.6lbs it's not the lightest laptop around, but it's certainly not too heavy to pack in a bag for a day on the road. You can snag one for yourselves for just $1,499, a substantial difference to similar machines from Dell.
ASUS VivoBook K501
The VivoBook K501 is another choice from ASUS that blends top-notch hardware with a more affordable price. It's a 15.6-incher like the ZenBook Pro, but tones down the internals a little to hack a large chunk off the price in comparison.
It's packing Intel Skylake Core i5 or i7 processors, 8GB or 12GB of RAM, 500GB HDD storage and NVIDIA 940M 2GB graphics. It's also pretty thin and light for a laptop of this size, coming in at under 2kg in weight and just 21.7mm thick.
And, like most of ASUS' premium offerings, the K501 has a metal construction with a brushed finish on the lid, adding some style as well as build quality. And you can grab all of this for less than $800.
