Upon first look the Asus ZenBook Pro UX550 is a very chic laptop with a lighter, thinner but bigger specs. I think it’s big since I am using Mac Book Air for 3 years now. Using Windows is very new to me, but tried the laptop for more than a week and here’s our in-depth review:

Upon first look the Asus ZenBook Pro UX550 is a very chic laptop with a lighter, thinner but bigger specs. I think it’s big since I am using Mac Book Air for 3 years now, but Asus ZenBook Pro’s aesthetics surprises me as has a mettalic outer shell with textured finishing, but when you touch it it can show smudges and can get dusty easily. It has a silver lining on the body to give a much more sophisticated look and feel.
It has 4 speakers made by harman/kardon which gives a very nice boost to music or movies. Another surprising feature of the Asus ZenBook Pro UX550 is that it has a keyboard light so as the ASUS logo on the outside. Now it’s very easy to type in the dark.
The Asus ZenBook Pro UX550’s screen can be touched, my son discovered this when he accidentally touched the screen and redirected to a different site after he touched it.
I love how big the screen is, it’s like an edge to edge type of screen like in our mobile phones. Which makes binge watching more nicer and bigger with the ZenBook Pro.
The Asus ZenBook Pro UX550 have a soft touch keyboard and it also has a backlight like in Macbook which you can adjust brightness.

The Battery Life
The Asus ZenBook Pro houses a 73Wh Lithium-polymer battery inside which is pretty large for the laptop, which I think is good for gamer and hard users like me. It is also easily charged as you can go full charge with less than 2 hours.
There are things to love with the Asus ZenBook Pro UX550:
- Battery Life
- Soft touch keyboard.
- Very nice and sophisticated aesthetics.
Not so good characteristics of ZenBook Pro:
- VGA Front camera
- Case can easily gets smudge and dust.
My son haven’t tried RPG games in the laptop as our internet is super slow. Wish we can do that to check the laptop for gaming usage. I also wish that they have a much copact size of this laptop as I am used to bringing smaller and much lightweight laptop on meetings. But overall I have a nice experience with it, though having a hard time coping up with Windows.
