Bottom Line

Despite being heavy and almost constantly in need of a power outlet the ASUS ZenBook UX501JW-DS71T is a powerhouse of performance able to run games and demanding applications without breaking a sweat.

The ASUS ZenBook UX501JW-DS71T is a bestselling 2015 15.6-inch touchscreen laptop that received positive reviews for its vibrant UHD display, stylish design, high performance processor, fast SSD storage, and powerful dedicated graphics. On the downside, it isn’t particularly light despite a thin profile, it’s battery life is mediocre and its audio output is unimpressive. If you have the money for it, the UX51Vz-DH71 is currently one of the top high-end Windows laptops featuring the latest mid-range graphics card.
