The 17-inch laptop integrates some unique features for a sleek mobile workstation including a ScreenPad, 16:10 1200p display, Xeon E-2276M, and a Quadro 5000 GPU.
Allen Ngo,

Not to be outdone by the Razer Blade Studio series, Asus will be launching its own lineup of thin and sleek laptops aimed at professionals. The ProArt StudioBook Pro X sits at the top of the family with its Xeon E-2276M CPU, Nvidia Quadro 5000 GPU, 64 GB of RAM, and 17-inch 1200p display with a chassis design that borrows unabashedly from both the consumer ZenBook and gaming Zephyrus S series.

The most noteworthy characteristics of the ProArt StudioBook Pro X are its ScreenPad, Xeon CPU, and 16:10 17-inch display. The ScreenPad can be convenient if used correctly, the Xeon processor can allow for ECC RAM, and the 16:10 aspect ratio is uncommon on most laptops. These small touches show that Asus has tuned the ProArt StudoBook Pro X specifically for professional users instead of rebranding existing consumer laptops as workstations. The Razer Blade Studio and most MSI W series laptops, for example, are simply reskinned consumer laptops but with Quadro GPUs.

As with most mobile workstations, the ProArt StudioBook Pro X is going to cost an arm and a leg. Asus is offering just one major SKU at the moment as detailed in the specifications sheet below for $4999 USD. Online retailers like Amazon, Newegg, and Xotic PC have all started taking pre-orders for the laptop.

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.
