ASUS UX510UW overview

  • 1Description

Crafted from solid aluminum, which keeps it lightweight and durable, the 15.6" ZenBook UX510UW Laptop from Asus is a slim and stylish notebook designed for on-the-go users who require the hardware for work and for play. Powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor and 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, the ZenBook UX510 lets you efficiently multitask as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When you need more performance, the CPU can reach up to 3.1 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. Additionally, there's one unpopulated RAM slot, which enables you to expand this system's RAM capacity up to a max of 16GB.

The 15.6" anti-glare display is built with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel that provides you with wide viewing angles and vivid color reproduction for an immersive viewing experience whether you're watching videos or playing games. With a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card with 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM, you'll be able to enable additional graphical options and crank up in-game visual settings so you can enjoy games at their best. You can also connect an external monitor using the HDMI port for further multitasking capabilities.

For storage, this system is equipped with a 1TB 5400 rpm SATA hard drive. Unlike solid state drives, traditional hard drives do not perform as fast; however, they do come in larger capacities, making them ideal for long term storage for all your photos, videos, documents, and more. Should you need more, you can connect external storage devices via its multiple USB ports as well as its multi-format media card reader, which also lets you quickly and easily transfer files from your mobile devices.

Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or by using the included USB 2.0 to RJ-45 cable for a more reliable and stable wired connection. Please note that by using the cable option, your speeds will be limited to the USB 2.0 standard, which is 480 Mbps. Therefore, using the 802.11ac Wi-Fi may be a better option. Other integrated features include a backlit keyboard, a webcam, speakers, microphones, and a 3.5mm audio in and out combo jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

USB 3.1 Type-C
The USB Type-C port features a reversible interface so that there's no wrong way to plug in cables. Furthermore, with the USB 3.1 standard, it supports data transfer rates of up to 10 Gbps for quick and easy file transferring between devices.
Backlit Keyboard
The full-size chiclet style keyboard uses scissor switches that provides it with a low 1.6 mm key travel for a comfortable typing experience. It also has backlighting so you'll be able to stay productive even in dimly lit environments.
Precision Touchpad
Built with technology developed for smartphone touchscreens, the ZenBook UX510's glass-covered touchpad provides you with the sensitivity and accuracy required for everyday computing.

Windows 10 Home

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.
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 Microsoft 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 UX510UW reviews

    15.6" ZenBook UX510UW Notebook is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Alright laptop First of all, do not buy a laptop from B&H if you have never played with it somewhere before, they won't let you return it. The specs look great, but the overall build quality is not so good: 1. It has the sizzlingsound start from first booting the device. 2.The top metal cover is really thin, it would be out of shape with very tiny pressure. 3.The light under keyboard shoots out from the gap, directly to my eyes. Which makes it really hard for long time use under dark environment. I will not recommend anyone to buy it at this price, but I think it's a great value if theprice drops to 799.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value for $1k. I got this laptop for school work, email, word processing, and light gaming. It excels at it all. I aim to keep this laptop for 3 years, but even if it doesn't last me longer than 2 I'll be wholly satisfied with this purchase. The battery life is decent, but not exceptional. Expect between 5 - 6 hours of battery time before you look to plug in again without interrupting workflow. With powersaver on Windows tells me I have 6.5 hours, but this is task dependent. The keyboard is pretty fantastic and has great feedback. I'm coming from an MSI laptop with a Steel Series keyboard and the typing experience isn't noticeably different. The trackpad is just okay. Sometimes it skips or misclicks, which isn't a huge issue for me as I use a mouse, but may not be for others. Heat wise, it's fantastic. Unfortunately, I didn't stress the system stock, butI replaced the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU and ran FireMark to see how hot it would get and it didn't even crack 70.0 Celsius. While gaming I am able to keep the laptop in my lap, but I've only played games up to Dragon Age: Origins. One issue I had was the screen/keyboard backlights growing brighter and dimmer, seemingly at random. It turned out this was due to an auto-dimming feature the laptop came with. I don't want my laptop to auto-dim, so pressing fn+a turns this feature off and I've had no issues since. If you intend to open the laptop, make sure you have a T4 Torx as it has 12 T4 screws: 10 going around the bottom edges and 2 more under the rear feet. To stick the rear feet back on, have some double sided tape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I've only been using this laptop for about a week, but so far I have had no issues. It zips right along so I can do my work efficiently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great laptop, runs very fast. Gets hot on intense games I use this laptop for programming and sometimes i occasionally play games. I am not a gamer but I appreciate the dedicated graphics. The computer does not look like a gaming computer but it can handle games. Great for the price. I do wish it had a touchscreen though but oh well, next time I will buy one of those.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Computer I use this computer for school and it is so much better than the previous ASUS computer I had. It's fast, lightweight and it looks really nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-rounder! This laptop is durable, powerful, energy efficient, and great in the looks! I would buy this again but with better internals!
