Editing high-definition videos can be a frustrating task on an underpowered laptop. ZenBook Pro has all the ingredients needed to make sure your creativity isn’t hampered by waiting: a powerful processor, lots of high-speed RAM, ultra-fast flash storage and, of course, a high-performance NVIDIA graphics chip. The smooth, fluid and responsive graphics performance ensures your editing will flow, not stutter along.

SonicMaster Premium produces sound that’s best-in-class and unlike anything you’ve ever heard from a laptop, with deep rich bass and crystal-clear vocals, even at high volume levels.
The Power of Touch
Featuring the same 16:9 aspect ratio as the 4K/UHD display, the large glass-coated multi-touch touchpad on ZenBook Pro is designed to be as intuitive and accurate as possible. Smart Gestures simulate many of Windows 8.1’s touchscreen functions on the touchpad, such as the right-edge swipe that shows the Charms bar. Smart Gestures also work in a wide range of applications.
Backlit for a better typing experience
A keyboard is still the best way to get things done for most professionals, so naturally we gave ZenBook Pro the best available. The keys are expertly tuned to require just the right amount of force to press and have just the right amount of travel -1.6mm to be precise - so it’s both quiet and comfortable for extended periods of typing. The separate number keys are a boon for data entry, and the backlight lets you always be able to see the keys, wherever you’re working - even in complete darkness.
