Price comparison


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 UX550
The keyboard is backlit, making it easier to type in the dark or dim lighting.
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.


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Has a flip and fold design
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
A flip and fold design allows you to fold the screen over the keyboard and transform the device into a tablet, without splitting the device into two pieces.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.



2560 x 1440px

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.
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.has anti-reflection coating

You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
6.has an LED-backlit display
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.




Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
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.
The internal storage 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.
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.
6.has an external memory slot
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.


1.Has USB Type-C
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
2.has an HDMI output
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
3.supports Wi-Fi
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
More USB 3.0 ports allow you to connect more devices to your computer that support USB 3.0. USB 3.0 is an improved version of USB 2.0 which offers faster transfer rates.
5.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.


The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
2.Has sleep-and-charge USB ports
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
Sleep-and-charge USB ports can charge electronic devices when the laptop is in sleep mode, hibernate mode, or even switched off.
3.Has a MagSafe power adapter
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
The MagSafe power adapter uses a power connector that is attached magnetically. When pulled or tugged, the connector will come out of the socket safely.


1.has stereo speakers
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.has a front camera
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
4.Has a fingerprint scanner
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.
5.Stylus included
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550
A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.


The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
2.Has AES
Asus ZenBook Pro UX550 (Intel Core i7-7700HQ)
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
Copy-paste is one of the most popular commands in human-computer interaction. It's a method of reproducing data from a source to a destination. Nowadays, all web browsers support it.
