ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolizes wisdom and knowledge. ASUS embodies the strength, purity, and adventurous spirit of this fantastic creature, and soars to new heights with each new product it creates.
The stunningly-beautiful ZenBook Pro UX501 doesn’t just lead its class - it redefines it. Using the best materials, the finest craftsmanship and the most advanced high-performance components, ZenBook Pro has jaw-dropping style and breathtaking performance. The timelessly-elegant design of the ZenBook family, with the iconic spun-metal finish echoing the spirit of Zen, is subtly enhanced with brilliant diamond-cut highlights and brushed-metal surfaces that add a touch of sophistication. The elegant theme is continued in the stylish ripple-effect pattern laser-engraved on its surface. ZenBook Pro is more than an incredibly-powerful laptop - it’s a true work of art.
With an astonishing resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels - that’s four times more than Full HD - the state-of-the-art 4K/UHD VisualMaster display on ZenBook Pro is something you’ll never tired of looking at.

IPS technology ensures that contrast and color reproduction are not degraded at wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees, and with factory-calibrated color temperature for consistent color. ZenBook Pro sets a new standard for laptop displays.
The ‘Pro' in ZenBook Pro isn't just an empty promise. Every single component — without exception — is chosen to deliver outstanding performance. A high-performance Intel® Core™ i7 processor, teamed with 16GB of RAM and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 960M graphics provide desktop-level performance, and the ultra-fast up to 512GB PCIe® x4 SSD storage with its transfer speeds of 1400MB/s ensures maximum responsiveness.

ZenBook Pro will never run out of steam, whether you’re manipulating multiple large office documents like spreadsheets and graphics-loaded presentations, watching 4K videos, rendering complex 3D graphics or simply relaxing with the latest and most resource-hungry 3D games.
A display as superb as that on ZenBook Pro deserves only the most powerful graphics, so we chose the amazing NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 960M for its gaming-grade performance.

With ZenBook Pro’s high-capacity 96Wh lithium-polymer battery and clever ASUS thermal engineering gives you up to six hours battery life even with its high-resolution 4K/UHD display - which is pretty impressive when you consider the amazing performance.

Featuring the same 16:9 aspect ratio as the VisualMaster display, the large glass-coated multi-touch touchpad on ZenBook Pro is designed to be as intuitive and accurate as possible. Smart Gestures simulate many of Windows 8.1’s touchscreen functions on the touchpad, such as the right-edge swipe that shows the Charms bar. Smart Gestures also work in a wide range of applications.
