  • Heavier than some competitors
  • Glossy screen

Bottom Line

The UX501VW’s glossy display and extra heft are minor shortcomings considering you are getting a UHD display, all-day battery life and an all metal unibody design for a lot less than the “pro” laptops from other manufacturers.

The ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW-DS71T is a bestselling 2015 15.6-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its all metal chassis, colorful UHD touch screen, fast Quad-Core processor, dedicated graphics and fast USB-C connection. However, it is slightly heavier than some competitors and the display is glossy. If you’re looking for a premium laptop, the Zenbook Pro UX501VW-DS71T offers high performance components and a high quality design for a reasonable price.

    In general, users should be expecting essentially the same performance level out of the UX501VW as from the UX501JW.
