ASUSPRO PU Essential Series business notebooks are budget-friendly and extremely reliable. Specially designed for SMBs, they deliver uncompromised durability and security in a business-focused package. Designed primarily for growing enterprises that may lack a fully-managed IT environment, they help improve productivity and boost reliability. They are the perfect choice for smart up-and-coming businesses on the path to success.
The ASUSPRO PU series uses a one-piece build to create a professional yet subtle look. The design simplicity extends to the underside, with no unnecessary clutter, and a premium look and feel is achieved by the use of a stylish dark brushed-metal finish.
True-comfort keyboard and dedicated numeric keypad increase productivity
Notebook keyboards are of great concern in the workplace, as they are essential for comfort and productivity. ASUS engineers have fine-tuned the PU series keyboard, providing optimum key feel and long key travel to maintain comfort during long hours of work. The keyboard also provides a full dedicated numeric keypad, complete with navigation keys, to increase efficiency for data entry or document navigation
Large multi-gesture touchpad
Easier to use and more precise input with scroll, rotate, and zoom
The touchpad has been enlarged to 107 x 61mm, matching the screen ratio to aid input and navigation. Larger than touchpads on similar notebooks from other brands, it provides responsive and accurate multi-touch control. With gesture support, it effectively replaces the mouse, offering an alternative and intuitive input option. Multi-touch input allows effortless accuracy without a mouse, including two-finger web page scroll, zooming and rotating images, plus three-finger tapping to mimic a right-click. Workflow can be streamlined with gesture control, especially multi-step tasks such as presentations and research projects.
Anti-glare display for comfortable viewing
The matte screen surface used in ASUSPRO notebooks prevents unwanted reflections, reducing eye fatigue. It also prevents unsightly fingerprint smudges from spoiling displayed content such as presentations. Ergonomically-angled and textured palm rest areas provide a comfortable and solid feel for optimum productivity.
Your business reinforced
Extra-strict ASUSPRO™ reliability testing standards
Business users demand higher standards and greater reliability, so all ASUSPRO Series notebooks are strictly quality-tested to much higher standards than the industry norm for mainstream notebooks. They are tested for durability in drop tests, hinge cycle tests, and panel pressure testing. They also ship with an anti-shock hard drive that includes a triple protection mechanism to ensure data is always safe.
Enhanced drop testing
More than double the drop height of standard notebooks
Stronger hinge testing
20,000 more cycles than standard notebook testing
Enhanced pressure testing
Up to 20% higher endurance compared to normal notebooks
Occasional liquid spillages are no longer a problem
Anti-shock hard drive keeps data safe
ASUSPRO PU Essential Series notebooks offer increased hard drive protection, with damage-absorbing sponge cushions designed to protect the hard disk against shocks and drops during transportation. Additionally, the hard disk features a complete protection mechanism consisting of G-sensor hardware and software that actively protects against imminent impacts in order to help keep data safe and secure. This system uses a 3D digital accelerometer with three levels of sensitivity: off, normal, and high. The latter is activated by default, and impact detection remains on at all times.

PCs in one simple package

Wake-on-LAN(WOL) allows PCs to be turned on by a simple network message
ASUSPRO PU Essential Series have a built-in hardware module on the motherboard that supports Wake-on-LAN (WOL). This allows a computer to be powered on or woken from sleep mode by a network message via LAN connections. This feature is invaluable for remote PC maintenance and support.
Replaceable battery and smart power
The removable battery pack can be replaced with an optional extended-life battery, and adding an external battery case can even double battery life. It's also easy to replace old batteries when necessary. The PU Series also feature a power connector alert that notifies users if the power supply malfunctions or is disconnected, minimizing the risk of sudden shutdowns and interruptions.
USB 3.0 and USB Charger+ offer ultra-fast transfer speeds and quick device charging
Notebooks ship with USB 3.0 as standard, delivering up to ten times the transfer speeds of USB 2.0. Exclusive ASUS USB Charger+ software easily charges smartphones, media players, and other portable devices even when notebooks are powered off or in sleep/hibernate modes — in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
