Asus zenbook pro ux550 OEMs began competing to create the fastest, thinnest, and most portable notebook with the newest generation of CPUs and GPUs from Intel and NVIDIA for mobile devices. The most recent models of Apple's MacBook Pro 15 and Dell's XPS 15 have amazing performance and design. What if, though, you could have about the same specifications and performance in a far more cheap package? That is precisely what ASUS has accomplished with its most recent ZenBook Pro UX550, a suitable rival to the well-received ZenBook Pro UX501 and the XPS 15 laptop.
Given that the XPS 15 is just about €300–€350 more expensive, you might anticipate some trade-offs along the way. However, the UX550VE appears to be in fine shape and has nothing suspicious about it at first glance. It boasts a sturdy metal chassis, top-notch technology, a thin-bezel IPS panel with good multimedia capabilities, a long battery life, and pleasant input devices. Since a while ago, ASUS has been known for producing ultrabooks that are superbly constructed and cost less than the competitors. And ASUS doesn't let us down with the UX550VE, which features an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, up to 16GB of DDR4-2400 memory, up to 1TB of M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, and an optional 4K UHD IPS touch-enabled display.
