Named by ASUS as “the laptop of tomorrow”, the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo Ux581 is a notable mobile workstation. Not necessarily because of its specs alone, but also thanks to its iconic design. You can either love it, or hate it. There’s no middle ground. Personally, I think this layout (keyboard on bottom, two screens on top) works well, but only in the context of a workstation, where you’re more than likely to work with either a mouse or a stylus.
Today I’ll have a look at a new entry level laptop model from ASUS, called the ASUS Laptop E406MA-DH21. It’s always hard discussing low end notebooks, since they’re usually not that flexible for a wide range of users. Still, judging by today’s standards, the E406 offers surprisingly decent performance and portability.
When it comes to Chromebooks, it’s usually hard justifying a price tag of more than around $400. Normally, these devices offer lower performance and a narrower experience range than their traditional laptop counterparts. ASUS has recently launched such a device. It’s called the ASUS Chromebook C425, and the model I’ll be reviewing today is the 14-inch C425TA-DH384.
Today I’ll be taking a quick look at one of the most good looking affordable laptops available today. The ASUS L406 notebook doesn’t have much going for itself when it comes to performance, or features. Yet, its attractive price makes it an OK device for young students, everyday home users and some office workers. The model I’ll be analyzing today is called the ASUS L406MA-AB02-WH. It’s white, it has a 14 inch screen, and can handle most moderately demanding daily tasks.
ASUS have just rolled out their new ASUS TUF Gaming FX505GT line-up, which features both AMD and Intel powered gaming notebooks. The model I’ll be reviewing today, the ASUS TUF505GT-AH73 is fitted with an Intel Core i7 processor. If value for money and hardware components were the only defining factors in how we buy our notebooks, than the ASUS TUF would be king in its price range. Affordable, powerful and future-proof, it does come with a handful of drawbacks, as well.
