Designed to entice. Crafted to perform.

Every part of ZenBook Pro 15 has been crafted to make it faster, more powerful and more amazing than the previous generation - including its latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 core processor, gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics, and its Harman Kardon-certified audio system. And every detail of its finish makes ZenBook Pro 15 more beautiful than ever - including its precision-engineered solid-aluminum unibody and stunning Full HD display. The new ZenBook Pro 15 is not just better: it's the best.

 

Beauty - Enduring elegance, timeless style

The understated luxury and refined profile of ZenBook Pro 15 belies the power inside. Its precision-crafted solid-aluminum unibody with its iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish features elegant Rose Gold diamond-cut edges that perfectly complement the gorgeous new Deep Dive Blue color scheme. At just 18.9mm thin, with a travel-friendly weight of only 1.86kg, ZenBook Pro 15 is a gorgeous powerhouse that you can take anywhere.

 

Performance - Supreme performance

ZenBook Pro 15 features up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 hexa-core processor with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050. Its astonishing processing power shames most desktops, and its ultrafast up to 1TB PCIe® x4 SSD storage delivers 3000MB/s read speeds for superb responsiveness*.

* Specification may vary by model.

 

CPU - Unstoppable computing

ZenBook Pro 15 is available with a 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK hexa-core processor. It offers 29% better performance, versus the previous generation, and can also boost its operating frequency to 4.5GHz. This amazing processor ensures that ZenBook Pro 15 has the power to match both your imagination and your creativity.

* As measured by SYSmark* 2014 SE comparing 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK vs. 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-7820HK.


 
GPU - Gaming-grade graphics

ZenBook Pro 15 uses up to the latest gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics and up to 4GB of GDDR5 video memory to deliver performance that's nearly twice as fast as a GeForce GTX 950M GPU. This DirectX® 12-compatible graphics monster delivers all the horsepower you need for even the most graphics-intensive tasks, such as 3D rendering or 4K UHD video playback, and flawless gaming visuals. Whether you're a designer, a developer or a gamer, you'll get the best possible graphics performance with ZenBook Pro 15.



Cooling System - Less heat, more power

Heat is the enemy of performance. ZenBook Pro 15 stays cool at all times with its highly efficient dual-fan cooling system that incorporates three heat pipes. Even though the new ZenBook Pro 15 is more powerful than ever, this advanced cooling design ensures that it stays cool for maximum performance, anytime and anywhere.

* One heat pipe is located on top of the motherboard underneath the keyboard, and is not visible when the base of the laptop is opened.

 

Audio - Harman Kardon sound

To equip ZenBook Pro 15 with unsurpassed audio performance, the ASUS Golden Ear team joined forces with audiophile specialists Harman Kardon to produce the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. And the results are astonishing. With its large, powerful stereo speakers powered by a smart amplifier, ZenBook Pro 15 delivers sound that's 1.4x louder than the previous generation, with a 1.6x-wider frequency response. This unique combination of hardware and ASUS SonicMaster software is how ZenBook Pro 15 delivers the most incredible sound you've ever heard on a laptop.

 

Connectivity - Comprehensive connectivity

A comprehensive set of I/O ports - including two USB-C™ ports, two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, and an HDMI port - give ZenBook Pro 15 the ultimate, hassle-free connectivity. And the integrated dual-band 802.11ac gigabit Wi-Fi supports speeds that are up to 12x faster than 802.11n*.

* Unless otherwise stated, claimed Wi-Fi speeds are based on theoretical performance. Actual performance may vary in real-world situations.

 

Battery - All-day battery

ZenBook Pro 15 uses a high-capacity 71Wh lithium-polymer battery and clever ASUS thermal engineering to provide up to 9.5 hours of battery life for productivity tasks*. And it includes fast-charge technology that lets you recharge ZenBook Pro 15 up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.

* Tested using MobileMark 2014 Productivity mode. Test configuration: Intel® Core™ i7-16G/Full HD panel/GeForce® GTX 1050 4GB graphics.

 

Keyboard and Touchpad - No-compromise productivity

A laptop this powerful deserves an exceptional keyboard. The backlit keyboard on ZenBook Pro 15 offers impressive 1.5mm key travel, making typing more comfortable and more accurate. ZenBook Pro 15 also includes a precision touchpad that's cleverly engineered for maximum comfort and accuracy, with a glass covering for smooth control. The touchpad features palm-rejection technology and supports multi-touch gestures and handwriting.

Is it worth it dou

18 March 2019
Legit. This thing is a beast. However. It might just be my device that has some faults. The major fault is the trackpad is sometimes unresponsive and lags around which can be a huge pain. The second is that the speakers sometimes makes a crackling sound. These faults shouldn't be the case, especially for something if that price. Without these problems. I would give it a 5 star. But I've had these problems from day 1. Giving it a couple more weeks to see if I need to get it checked out.

Great Laptop, but regularly blue screens

4 June 2019
The specs of the Laptop are great and at a reasonable price point.
Awesome RAM, Storage, CPU, SSD, Graphics Card.
And is very light and a good size.
Design is good and looks nice and corporate.

However, I have had an issue that has caused it to Blur Screen and crash once every couple of days.
Also it doesn't have an Ethernet Port which is disappointing.
And the USB C doesn't support display which makes it hard to get a good docking station.

Great except for the sound.

28 May 2019
Awesome laptop. Grunty as, light, the screen quality is top notch, backlit keyboard that feels great.

I was a bit concerned about the comment from Steven about the crackling sound, figured maybe it's a one off.

Unfortunately it's happening with this one as well - seems to be a soundcard or s/w issue, not the speakers themselves, if you change the sound from 24bit to 16bit the problem goes away for a few minutes, and then the crackling comes back - this is regardless whether you use headphones or speakers. Hoping a driver update will fix it in the near future because its very noticeable at any volume.
