After revealing the ZenBook Pro 15 in September, ASUS has officially launched the premium creative laptop today. The ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 (UX535) goes on sale at ASUS today (opens in new tab) with a price starting at $1,500.

Sitting at the top of ASUS' fall refresh, the ZenBook Pro 15 comes packed with all of the hardware you'd expect from a premium laptop. Powering the whole thing is Intel's 10th Gen Core i7-10750H processor at 2.6GHz with a 5GHz boost clock. That's backed up with up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics.

What's most impressive about the ZenBook Pro 15 (UX535), however, is it's screen. The 15-inch panel is available in 4K OLED with full coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. That makes it perfect for getting professional work done on the go, and it's all in a chassis that's one of the smallest 15-inch laptops you can get your hands on right now.

Connectivity is also a strong point for the ZenBook Pro 15. There's one HDMI 2.0b port, USB 3.2 Type-A,, Thunderbolt 3 via USB Type-C, and an SD card reader. You'll also get Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and Bluetooth 5 on board.

Finally, the ZenBook Pro 15 adopts ASUS' ScreenPad 2.0 in the trackpad. This gives you a separate, 5.65-inch touchscreen in the trackpad that can adapt to a bunch of different uses. Certain apps, like Spotify, will give you dedicated controls on the secondary screen, and you can also use it to quickly switch between apps, make phone calls, and use a dedicated number pad.

The ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 goes on sale today through ASUS' online store starting at $1,500. That's for the 1080p model, though the 4K OLED model should be available soon as well. With a new model on the scene, it's also a good time to look out for sales on the previous ZenBook Pro models when Black Friday rolls around in November.
