ASUS UX501VW-DS71T Overview

  • 1Description

Designed for creative enthusiasts, the ASUS 15.6" ZenBook Pro Multi-Touch Laptop features a 15.6" touchscreen so you may utilize the multi-touch gestures within Windows 10 to control this system. This notebook is powered with a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Skylake processor that can achieve speeds up to 3.5 GHz. Armed with 16GB of DDR4 RAM, it lets you run multiple applications at the same time without experiencing system slowdowns. There's also a Thunderbolt 3 port, featuring a Type-C interface, to transfer data at a rate of 40 Gb/s to displays and external storage drives.

The 15.6" display is driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card with 2GB of VRAM that delivers 3D visuals at a resolution of 3840 x 2160. ASUS has equipped this screen with an IPS panel, which provides wide viewing angles as well as accurate colors. You may expand the on-screen workspace by connecting your monitors to its HDMI port. There are also two built-in speakers enhanced with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower to complete the multimedia experience. Other notable features include an integrated microphone and webcam so you can engage in face-to-face conversations.

This notebook sports a 512GB SSD that utilizes the PCI 3.0 x4 lane to provide fast access to your data as well as ample storage capacity for your photos, videos, and files. You may transfer content to this drive from SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards with the built-in card reader. For connecting external devices, three USB 3.0 ports offer a data transfer rate of up to 5 Gb/s. Aside from these ports, this notebook comes with a combo audio jack and an external USB 2.0 to Gigabit Ethernet LAN adapter. Furthermore, the system can access the Internet and other devices wirelessly via the 802.11ac Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 4.0 module.

Windows 10 (64-bit)

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift

    ASUS UX501VW-DS71T Reviews

    15.6" ZenBook Pro Multi-Touch Laptop is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG I AM SO PLEASED This is everything I wanted. I do a lot of heavy preofessional editing stuff on Adobe software, this thing is perfect. Fast load and render times, three second startup, stays cool even when it's working hard, and a long battery life. Screen is great, my only complaint is it is very glare-prone in daylight, and the touchscreen takes some getting used to. Windows 10 is not my favorite, but it's a necessary evil to take advantage of all the hardware. Would definitely recommend anyone looking at a MacBook heavily consider a ZenBook instead. It's comparable quality for at least $500 less.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good in many ways but disapointing in others The set-up manual consists of a tiny folded leaflet and nothing else. Asus support is very kind but extremely unknowledgeable as they too do not have the manuals it seems. That said the notebook seems very well built. The huge issue that no-one apparently thought about or knows how to resolve is that this computer will NOT work at all with photo editing programs like ON1 or indeed will not work well with Windows Live Essentials - all due to inbuilt software incompatibility. Would have been good to know beforehand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product. Good Vaue. I use the ZenBook for personal use ranging from software programming to word processing. It does the good job and at the same time allows you to play most PC games without hurting your wallet.I was contemplating purchasing a MacBook Pro; however, the significant price difference and similar performance made the ZenBook an obvious choice. For those of you who wanted to buy a PC with a SkyLake processor in early 2016, this is your best option.This is not a PC for those of you who wish to do only web browsing and office applications.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Came with Windows Signature Edition I bought this laptop 3 months ago through B&H. It is great so far. Looking at the specs of recently released MacBook Pro, this Zenbook beats it. 4K touchscreen, USB 3 and HDMI ports present together with Thunderbird 3 here. And the price of comparable Mac is $1K more. The only thing I see Apple wins is the size/weight but at the expense of smaller battery. I also like that it is quiet and not hot during power use. Mine came with Windows Signature Edition without third party bloatware. This actually was not advertised on B&H and I was pleasantly surprised.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best laptop I have owned! Amazing graphics, extremely fast, looks fantastic! Windows 10 recognized all my accessories immediately. Video and photo editing has no lag whatsoever. The only negative is the speakers don't get very loud, but the sound is very good. Great laptop at a good price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 4K overkill and poor keyboard, but powerful nonetheless A 4k notebook with workstation grade components is the catchy concept that sold me, especially with the extremely competitive price tag, and the machine runs very well, handling with ease resource-intensive tasks even on battery power; yet, I have some dissonance because of the relatively small screen size, the small keyboard, and cumbersome touch-pad. In addition, I am dissatisfied with the tinny, crackly in-built volume at moderate to higher levels, but my particular model had serious line-out noise on each of my headphones. A 15.6 screen will only ever be that in screen real-estate, and even 2K is pushing the text scaling; however, its still a marvelous multi-media / photography center with the resolution and picture quality. The touchpad, although sensitive, extends through to include the click buttons at the bottom, making it a headache for accidental clicking and dragging. Finally, the keyboard is, unfortunately, somewhat compact (I've seen smaller laptops featuring full keyboards), not having keys for some critical power-user buttons and, in addition, it has poor tactile feedback and is typo-prone. I bought this laptop and it has excelled by the specifications, but I would not have bought it had I known that even squinting wasn't enough for full 4K no-scaling at the screen size, and that the touchpad and, especially, the keyboard were cumbersome.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Know what you're getting it for I purchased this laptop for its incredible processing power and graphics card in order play games. However, a lot of games and software are not optimized for 4k resolution, so it didn't satisfy me. The screen is also incredibly glossy and creates glare. There also seems to be a yellow tint on the screen display. If you're getting this for video editing, this may be the laptop for you. However, if you want to game or use it for other purposes, you might want to look for something elee.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Exchanged My Surface Book for this one. I was able to output on a 4K Monitor which the Surface Book failed to do. Considering the price and having all these great hardware specs is really a treat. I have not seen any issues on battery draining so far. On stand by it went beyond 8 hours on the first night of use, just did a few you tube video and internet browsing. When I was playing the game that comes with the purchase here at B&H I can hear the noise but normal operation it is super quiet. The laptop also become super hot while playing the game. But I don't have any issues with that I am not going to use this laptop to play games. I do programming most of the time. The audio is not that great, I am giving it as average. Microsoft Edge is not that good also as a browser, found too many bugs that made my browsing experience so horrible and unacceptable. Most of the website I go are not compatible with the Edge browser. Track pad also is better vs the Surface book the use is seamless. No BSoD so far, few times I experience the graphic driver stops working in a few ms. I am giving it a four because with the said flaws I am positive this can be fixed. I love so much the 4k sharpness of this multi touch laptop. Super fast and quiet (while not playing games).

    Asked by: Mahmoud S.
    The physical keyboard is US English. Windows 10 does support Arabic, and with an external keyboard, or sticker set for the built in keyboard, you would easily be able to type in Arabic.
