Reviews for the Asus ProArt Studiobook 16 OLED H7604
Asus offers a powerful machine for creative users in the ProArt Studiobook 16 OLED. Intel's Core i9-13980HX and the GeForce RTX 4070 laptop take care of performance-related matters, but the new 120 Hz OLED panel is not completely convincing.

This is a great update to the Studiobook and one that should particularly appeal to 3D designers – when that model becomes available. It will then be possible to rapidly iterate through prototypes: design, get feedback, and tweak. If you can take advantage of the Asus Dial, the stylus, and the sheer firepower within this laptop, then it could be a transformative purchase. For everyone else, it's probably overkill. Especially at this price. But if you like the idea of the integrated dial, then Google for "ProArt Studiobook 16 OLED" and you'll find cheaper options based on last year's silicon. The ProArt Studiobook 16 OLED has a unique design, and if you need its skillset then you can be assured of top components and build quality throughout.

A laptop that manages to crowbar in some of the most powerful components currently on the market, then keep them cool enough to extract huge levels of performance, the ASUS ProArt Studiobook is ideal for everything from basic image editing to 3D rendering. It laughs at 4K video, plays games, flies through raw image processing and looks good while doing it.

The latest to join the Asus family is none other than the Asus Studiobook 16. As far as its design is concerned, Asus has used black plastic which feels quite high-quality. However, the only problem is the smooth surfaces, which are very susceptible to fingerprints. In a glance, the design is quite restrained and apart from the ProArt logo on the lid there are no other visual accents. As soon as the lid is opened, the large DialPad under the keyboard is immediately visible. While the lid sits slightly in front of the base unit, it allows for a maximum opening angle of almost 180 degrees. In terms of its connectivity, the ports in this device are well distributed over the front areas of both sides and the rear. It is worth mentioning that most of the USB ports are on the front right and it can get easily crowded when fully occupied. Apart from that, Asus has placed the power jack, the Ethernet port and the HDMI output on the back, so that it does not get in the way.
As for the keyboard, the keys has a travel of 1.4 mm and a dedicated numpad. While the typing feel is quite decent, the keystrokes are not the quietest and the space bar in particular is rather loud. The overall layout also takes a bit of getting used to, because the arrow keys are large, but have been shifted downwards. In addition, the single-row Enter key is not perfect either. There is also a three-stage white illumination. However, it is not automatically activated via sensor.
Apart from that, the large touchpad works excellently and can be clicked everywhere, which is characterized by a rich and quiet clicking noise. The special feature has to be the DialPad, a large rotary pushbutton between the touchpad and keyboard. While the implementation with the Adobe apps works well, the mouse and key combo is usually faster.
As for the display, Asus is currently fully committed to OLED screens and this Studiobook is no exception. In contrast to its predecessor with the 4K OLED display, an OLED touchscreen with 3,200 x 2,000 pixels and a higher frequency of 120 Hz has been used here. While the subjective image quality is very good, the bright areas appear a little grainy upon closer inspection, which is due to the touch layer. As far as its performance is concerned, Intel's current high-end model of the Raptor Lake series for notebooks, the Core i9-13980HX, has been used as the processor for this model. This processor offers 8 fast performance cores and 16 efficiency cores, which is why the chip is able to process a total of 32 threads simultaneously. In terms of its battery, this device has been equipped with a 90 Wh battery. In a nutshell, it is a great laptop for usage, depending on the need and preference of the user.
