Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro 15 W500 now shipping with 48 GB of RAM and it's already out of stock
Originally announced at IFA 2019, the ProArt StudioBook series is Asus' all-original lineup of super-thin and attractive workstation laptops equipped with Nvidia Quadro graphics. The focus on sleek aesthetics contrasts the traditionally bulky and boxy look of mobile workstations like the Lenovo ThinkPad P53 or Dell Precision 7540 to compete directly with the latest Nvidia Studio laptops like the Razer Blade Pro Studio Edition. The model was originally set for a vague Q4 2019 launch window with no starting price, but Asus can now confirm that the system is finally shipping for a hefty starting price of $4000 USD.
Perhaps the most noteworthy characteristic of the ProArt StudioBook Pro 15 is its 48 GB of soldered DDR4 RAM - a first in recent memory for a mobile workstation. The Quadro RTX 5000 GPU comes standard alongside a 4K UHD IPS display and 2 TB of storage to back up the high asking price. Xeon CPUs are not available, however, meaning no ECC RAM support.
