Price comparison

Design

1.weight

1.88kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.Has a backlit keyboard
Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE 15.6" Intel Core i9-8950HK 2.9GHz / 16GB / 1TB SSD
The keyboard is backlit, making it easier to type in the dark or dim lighting.
3.thickness

18.9mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.width

365mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Uses a fanless design

By using power-efficient components that don't produce large amounts of heat, it's possible to create a device with no cooling fans. This results in a much quieter (or even silent) operation.
6.height

241mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Display

1.resolution

3840 x 2160px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

282ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size

15.6"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has a touch screen

3.Uses flash storage
Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE 15.6" Intel Core i9-8950HK 2.9GHz / 16GB / 1TB SSD
Flash-based storage devices such as SSDs have no mechanical components. Due to this, they are typically faster, run silently, and are more shock resistant than traditional HDDs.
4.CPU speed
The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
5.internal storage

1000GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
6.maximum memory size
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
