Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 W700 with Quadro RTX 3000 graphics now shipping for $2000 USD
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.
