As well as displaying beautiful true-to-life colors from almost any angle, the stunning NanoEdge display is the key to ZenBook Pro 15’s incredibly compact footprint. Its ultraslim bezel gives you the maximum amount of screen real estate in the minimum space, so ZenBook Pro 15 is comparable in size to many 14-inch laptops. It’s superb engineering like this that sets ZenBook Pro 15 apart from the crowd.
4K UHD display
Smart amplifier: more volume, less distortion
ZenBook Pro 15 uses powerful custom-designed speakers driven by smart-amplifier technology. This intelligently monitors voice coil movement to deliver 1.4x-louder volume with superb fidelity, while also minimizing distortion and preventing speaker damage. Special algorithms auto-detect the physical limits of the speaker components, allowing them to be driven at peak volumes without risk of damage. The result is low-distortion audio at volume levels that are simply not achievable using traditional amplifier technology.
With faster-than-wired speeds of up to 1734Mbps — 12 times faster than 802.11n — the dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi in ZenBook Pro 15 lets you enjoy smooth streaming of 4K UHD online videos, with greater range and more stable network connections.
For unlimited possibilities
The two USB-C™ ports on ZenBook Pro 15 incorporate the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 technology for versatile, ultrafast connections to all the latest peripherals (it’s twice as fast as Thunderbolt™ 2 and eight times faster than USB 3.1 Gen 1). You can power and charge devices too, and the dual 4K UHD external display support lets you create a powerful visual workstation to enhance your productivity or gaming experience. You can even connect an external graphics dock — such as the ASUS XG Station Pro — to give you all the power you need for the latest games and virtual reality (VR) applications.

Easier access to advanced controls
Attention to every useful detail is a key part of the ASUS design philosophy. We’ve introduced an evolutionary new way of using the humble Fn key to access your laptop’s features, such as the volume or display brightness. In the past, you’d press the Fn key first to use these features: now, the function keys operate the advanced features by default. If you want to access the standard function keys (F1-F8) simply use the Fn key combination.
