Editor's Notes

October 25, 2019:

Asus has a wide range of available laptops, starting with the highly budget-friendly Chromebook C202SA that is surprisingly well-made and durable for a Chrome OS device -- very often they're somewhat chintzy, but not this one. As far as Windows machines go, the VivoBook 15 is one of the most cost-effective options, at just a few hundred dollars. If you're not necessarily looking for super-expensive, blazing-fast hardware, Asus offers a handful of mid-range options that still pack plenty of firepower. The ZenBook 15 and S15 are both excellent devices that take advantage of the entry-level ScreenPad and, especially in the case of the S15, they're pretty stylish as well.

Their ROG line contains a number of fantastic gaming PCs, including the ROG Strix, ROG Scar III, and Strix Hero III, which each cost somewhere between one and two thousand dollars. The Tuf FX505DV is a somewhat more affordable gaming laptop, and while it's a bit less costly it barely sacrifices any computing power. Most of these gamer-friendly models also pack impressive high-refresh displays at up to 240 hertz. And as far as actual processing power is concerned, as well as fancy new technology, the ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 is awfully tough to beat. It's one of the very rare OLED laptops currently sold, and it features the company's high-end ScreenPad, in this case a pressure-sensitive extension of the high-end 4K display panel.
