  1. Maximum RAM capacity may vary according to device configuration.
  2. Maximum SSD capacity may vary according to device configuration.
  3. Backlit keyboard and integrated fingerprint sensor are optional.
  4. COVID-19, H3N2, H1N1, E. coli and Staphylococcus tests were performed by independent third-party laboratories: Boken Quality Evaluation Institute, Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Center, and National Defense Medical Center.
  5. The testing regime includes the requirements of both military-grade standards and ASUS quality tests, and varies depending on device. MIL-STD-810 testing is conducted on selected ASUS products only. Note that the MIL-STD-810 testing helps to ensure the quality of ASUS products but does not indicate a particular fitness for military use. The test is performed under laboratory conditions. Any damage caused by attempts to replicate these test conditions would be considered accidental, and would not be covered by the standard ASUS warranty. Additional coverage is available with ASUS Premium Care.
  6. Only for Intel® Core processors (Series 1) and Intel® Core Ultra processors (Series 1).​
  7. The screen-to-body ratio is calculated based on the visible body area of the display when the laptop is opened to 90° and the active display area.
  8. ISO 21702 specifies proper methods for measuring antiviral activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces of antiviral-treated products. Test Viruses used in this International Standard are as follows: Influenza: An enveloped virus known to cause respiratory tract infection in humans. Feline calicivirus: A non-enveloped virus used in place of noroviruses known to cause enteric pathogens due to similar biological properties.
  9. ISO 22196:2011 specifies a method of evaluating the antibacterial activity of antibacterial-treated plastics, and other non-porous, surfaces of products (including intermediate products).
  10. Clinical testing using the ISO 21702 and ISO 22196 standard protocol proved that viral and bacterial growth were inhibited by 99% over a 24-hour period. A 99% reduction in potentially harmful microorganisms is defined as the number of viruses and bacteria on the surface dropping from 1,000,000 (cfu/pfu) to 100 (cfu/pfu).
  11. Antimicrobial treatments are manufactured by Co-Action Corporation.
  12. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) is the Federal statute that governs the registration, distribution, sale, and use of pesticides in the United States.
  13. The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012) concerns the placing on the market and use of biocidal products, which are used to protect humans, animals, materials or articles against harmful organisms like pests or bacteria, by the action of the active substances contained in the biocidal product.
  14. Note that the protective effects of ASUS Antibacterial Guard were tested by ASUS on April 26, 2021, and follow the ISO 22196 method on our specially-treated test samples. The tests provide a simulation of three years of wear and tear, and include exposure to salt spray, thermal shocks, and both alcohol and wool-felt tests. Actual effective antibacterial-protection period may vary depending on product configuration and usage.
  15. As of 22 August 2022, refer to WHO Coronavirus (COVID-19) Dashboard.

  18. The actual composition of ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus may vary.
  19. ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus is applied to the laptop areas that users touch most frequently, including the palm rest area, keyboard, and touchpad. However, laptops with non-backlit keyboards use Antimicrobial Guard. A sticker on the laptop will help to identify the device is covered by Antimicrobial Guard Plus or Antimicrobial Guard due to different spec configuration.
  20. Charges the battery to up to 50% within 30 minutes when the system is off or in Standby mode. Power adapter with a minimum capacity of 65 watts is required. After charging has reached 50% capacity, charging will resume at normal rate. Charging time may vary +/-10% due to system tolerance.
  21. Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) materials may vary according to device configuration.
  22. Product weight may vary according to device configuration.
  23. Selected products are tested using enhanced military-grade MIL-STD-810H durability standards, with 12 test methods and 26 test procedures, to ensure extraordinary toughness. Based on ASUS internal market research using available information and testing reports from main laptop brand websites on Oct 28, 2022, ASUS consumer laptops use a regime consisting of 26 test procedures, which is the consumer laptop industry’s strictest and most extensive test regime for the MIL-STD-810H standard.
  24. EPEAT registered where applicable. EPEAT registration varies by country. See for registration status by country.
  25. Percentage varies according to device configuration.
