Asus Zenbook NX500, raw power and performance to the market for ultrabooks


Heir to the successful Zenbook range, one that has best captured the essence of the Ultrabooks promoted by Intel, the NX300 comes as a product premium highly targeted to an audience that seeks precisely that. Although not yet have official information relating to price, taking into account the approximately 1500 € sold by the current Zenbook UX301 hopefully the new Zenbook NX500 also move around those figures.

Its main workhorses: A UHD monitor with a resolution 3,840 x 2,160 pixels surrounded by a 15.6-inch panel with IPS technology, Nvidia GTX 850M to move all the graphics and Core i7 which is responsible for giving all necessary raw power.

A premium product focused segmentro of Ultrabooks 2.2 kg weight, 128 to 512 GB of SSD storage, up to 16 GB of RAM and the now classic speakers signed by Bang & Olufssen are closing the data sheet of the NX500. Located in decline “PC era”, the ultrabooks are playing a significant role in it. Asus  betting moves his cards for a premium segment but mostly enhancing some aspects that most lacking when it comes to competition within Windows, like those aluminum finish and screen resolution. In other segments, however, as the price , yes we would like to see some sort of bolder offer (without the price cut will surely suffer the UX301).
