    Testing for the best laptop quality
    A Passion for Technology. A Focus on Quality
    Your laptop should never let you down — period. That's why ASUS laptops undergo a rigorous torture-test regime, using up to 15 separate tests in environmental conditions we hope you'll never encounter. So whether you're an urban explorer or an Arctic trailblazer, you can rest assured your laptop is ready for the worst that life on the road can throw at it.

    Military Standard
    Elegant, sophisticated, and tough as nails
    The ASUS ZenBook Series combines beauty and elegance with incredible strength. All 2018 ZenBook models and onwards will be tested according to the demanding MIL-STD 810G military-grade standard to ensure maximum reliability and durability. The nine tests in the full suite include operation in harsh environmental conditions — including extremes of altitude, temperature and humidity — along with physical vibration and shock tests designed to mimic rough day-to-day handling. The number of tests passed by each ZenBook model is shown in the individual model's specifications sheet.

    Reliability Tests
    Shake, rattle and roll
    Laptops are designed to be mobile, and with mobility come the inevitable bumps, knocks and scrapes of everyday life. ASUS laptops are thoroughly drop- and shock-tested tested to ensure they can survive minor accidents without serious internal or external damage. They're also subjected to vibration tests that simulate transportation and travel, so your laptop's more likely to arrive in full working order even after the toughest journey.

    Extreme Environmental Tests
    Built to endure, anywhere
    Extremes of temperature, altitude and humidity can be bad news for a laptop, so ASUS laptops go through a series of tough climatic tests to make sure they can survive in harsh environments, whether they're turned on or off*. We bake them at desert-like temperatures up to 60°C, freeze them down to a super-chilly -30°C, subject them to a steamy 90% humidity, and check if they can survive at dizzying altitudes of 40,000 feet— nearly twice as high as Mount Everest!

    High Temperature Test
    Altitude Test
    Humidity Test
    *Tested for storage between -30°C to 60°C, and at least 24 hours operational between 0°C to 40°C. Altitude tested for storage at 40,000 feet and -30°C; an fully operational at 10,000 feet. Humidity tested for operation at 90% humidity and 40°C for 24 hours. Testing does not guarantee future performance in these test conditions.

    Durability Tests
    Above and beyond the ordinary
    In addition to extreme climatic testing, all ASUS laptops also undergo a barrage of grueling durability tests designed to push them to their physical limits. These tests ensure that every component of your laptop gives you long and reliable service, no matter how tough the going gets. We pound the keyboard with up to 10 million keystrokes, torture the hinges with up to 20,000 open-and-close cycles, subject the chassis to 50,000 twisting tests to mimic those one-handed dashes to the meeting room, and ensure the touchscreen has a precise and consistent response.
    We also connect and disconnect the I/O ports 5,000 times for endurance, and check that performance isn't affected by cable quality. Finally, we pressure test the display using use a 25kg force on the lid and the underside of the chassis. Only if it survives all these is a laptop deemed worthy of the ASUS badge.
    Keyboard Durability Test
    Designed for up to 10 million keystroke lifespan
    Hinge test
    Subjects the laptop to 20,000 open-and-closed cycles
    Port Durability Test
    5,000 times tests to ensure the physical durability of I/O ports
    Panel Pressure Test
    Needs to endure 25kg force on lid and bottom without damage
    Twist Test
    50,000 twisting tests to ensure chassis rigidity when twisting torque applied
    Touch Panel Precision Test
    Checks touch response and accuracy for a precise and natural feel
    Noise and Audio Tests
    Silence is golden
    The ASUS Golden Ear team designs and fine-tunes all ASUS laptop audio systems for the best possible sound, so we make a special effort to ensure you don't hear anything else apart from audio. ASUS has its own ISO-7779-compliant audio testing facility, where our engineers perform extensive noise testing to minimize the noise from fans and other components.
    EMI & Wi-Fi Connection
    An electric performance
    ASUS laptops undergo extensive EMI (electromagnetic interference) tests to make sure they don't interfere with other electronic devices, and are resistant to interference from external electromagnetic fields. Wi-Fi performance is tuned for all ASUS laptops, and selected models also incorporate ASUS Wi-Fi Master, an exclusive technology that optimizes Wi-Fi range and performance in almost any environment. Wi-Fi Master gives you the fastest and most reliable Wi-Fi performance from your laptop, so you can enjoy reliable connections and smooth streaming of high-definition online videos at greater distances than ever before, even if there's interference from USB 3.0 devices.
