2Battery tests conducted by ASUS on 25 April, 2023​ using the 1080p Video Playback scenario. Battery life test configuration: Intel® Core™ i5-1340P, 8GB+8GB DDR5 RAM, 512GB*2 PCIe® 4.0 SSD, FHD IPS display, 84Whr battery. Test settings: WiFi flight mode, display brightness set to 150 nits, touchpad. Actual battery life may vary depending on product configuration, usage, operational conditions and power management settings. Battery life will decrease over the lifetime of the battery.

3The same device will offer differing levels of available storage depending on the chosen RAID level. If RAID 0 is used, the system combines the capacity of all SSDs in order to enhance data-transfer speeds. The available storage will equal the combined physical capacity of all the SSDs on the device. However, if the device is configured with RAID 1, two copies of the data are saved simultaneously in order to protect your data if one SSD fails. As a result, the available storage capacity will be half of the combined physical storage capacity, as half the storage is used for backup copies. For example, a device with two 1 TB SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration will have 2 TB of available storage capacity, but with RAID 1 the available storage capacity will be 1 TB.

4 During testing, 66 cc of liquid was applied over a period of three minutes.
