Reviews for the Asus Zenbook Pro UX550VD-90NB0ET1-M01310

80% Asus Zenbook Pro UX550 (UX550VD) impressions and review – what to expect from the new top-tier Zenbook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Zenbook Pro UX550 is a solid option in its niche of premium 15-inch multimedia laptops. It's not the best or the most affordable, but it slots right in the middle as a good value pick. The design and overall build, the clickpad, long battery life, punchy speakers and smooth everyday performance are among its strong points, while the list of quirks includes a spongy keyboard, a somewhat flexible main-deck, always active fans, some coil whining and some performance issues with gaming. I could live with most of them, hence the overall rating, but it's entirely up to you if this laptop strikes the right balance for you or not. Read on for the whole story.
