Leave it to a company who designs some of the most stylish gaming laptops to offer one of the best-looking mobile workstations yet. The ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 promises Xeon options, ECC RAM, and a 16:10 1200p display wrapped a Zephyrus-like chassis.
Allen Ngo,

If the $5000 Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro X is a little too insane for your taste, then the lesser Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 should do the trick. This thinner and lighter version comes with the same Pantone-validated 17-inch 16:10 display as its pricier sibling and it can be configured with the same Xeon E-2276M CPU as well — all for $2000 to $3000 less.

Of course, some cutbacks had to be made. Unlike the Pro X version, the Pro 17 will have a more traditional clickpad in lieu of the ScreenPad. Furthermore, its GPU maxes out at the Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000 instead of the Quadro RTX 5000. There is one less Thunderbolt 3 port and the bezels are slightly thicker (5.3 mm vs. 3.8 mm). Even so, the Pro 17 is still a high-end machine aimed at professionals much like the Razer Blade Pro 17 Studio, MSI WS75, or the Lenovo ThinkPad P series.

Online retailers like ABT, B&H, Newegg, and Xotic PC are already accepting pre-orders for the ProArt StudioBook Pro 17.

These processors take mobile computing to another level, making it incredibly smooth and responsive while multitasking. You can seamlessly edit your creations and render multilayered files with NVIDIA RTX 3000 Max-Q graphics, which are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications. These NVIDIA RTX Studio laptops utilize the NVIDIA Turing architecture and takes advantage of the power of hardware accelerated ray tracing, deep learning and advanced shading techniques to create amazing content faster than ever before.

The ultrathin-bezel design gives you the maximum amount of screen real estate in the minimum space given, making it comparable in size to many 15-inch laptops.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
