ASUS has started sales of its top of the range mobile workstation, the ProArt StudioBook Pro X. The heavily-packed machine packs in Intel’s Xeon processor, an NVIDIA Quadro RTX video card, and is equipped with a 17-inch Pantone Validated display as well as a ScreenPad 2.0 trackpad. And, fittingly for a workstation-class laptop, the notebook has received certifications from multiple professional software vendors, ensuring that the laptop will work with their software and qualifies for full end-user support.
The ASUS ProArt StudioBook Pro X W730 comes in a premium-looking metallic chassis with a Turquoise Grey finish that houses a 1920x1200 resolution 17-inch NanoEdge display, which offers wide viewing angles as well as an antiglare coating. Developed with workstation/productivity use in mind in mind, the display covers 97% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, is Pantone Validated, and is factory-calibrated to a Delta E<1.5 accuracy, a rare feature for laptops.
Inside the ProArt StudioBook Pro X is Intel’s hexa-core Xeon E-2276M processor, as well as NVIDIA’s Quadro RTX 5000 GPU with 16 GB GDDR6 memory. The system comes with 64 GB of ECC DDR4-2666 DRAM (upgradeable to 128 GB) as well as 4 TB of storage using two PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs, and one hard drive.
When it comes to connectivity, the ASUS ProArt StudioBook Pro X naturally features everything that modern professionals might require, including Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, three USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, GbE, an HDMI 2.0 output, an SD 4.0/UHS-II card reader, and a 3.5-mm audio jack for a headset.
In a bid to further improve the comfort of the desktop replacement laptop, the notebook has a keyboard with 19-mm key pitches and a two-millimeter key travel. Meanwhile, like other high-end machines from ASUS today, the ProArt StudioBook Pro X uses ASUS's ScreenPad 2.0 touchpad, which places a small display underneath the trackpad. On the multimedia side of matters, the laptop has Harman Kardon speakers with an amplifier, a microphone array, and an HD webcam.
In terms of bulk, the 17-inch class laptop – while not light – is surprisingly also not particularly heavy: the 2.8-cm thick machine weighs 2.5 just kilograms. Meanwhile, the ProArt StudioBook Pro X is equipped with a 95 Wh 6-cell battery, which is nearly the maximum capacity allowed to carry in airplanes.

boeush - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkDo you strap a microscope to your face when you use your 8K and 5K 17-inch screens? Or are you one of those who prefers to overpay for hyper-DPI, then runs everything at a 250% magnification factor?
PixyMisa - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkThe point of higher DPI is to render more detail, not more content. You are *supposed* to increase the scaling factor, which is why Windows will do it for you automatically.
1080p at 13" is adequate, if not great. At 17" it's not even adequate.
MamiyaOtaru - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkit's not 1080p
alittleteap0t - Tuesday, November 19, 2019 - linkThe Xeon E-2276M should be 6C/12T instead of 8C/16T (what's listed in the box)
yetanotherhuman - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkI love the small bottom bezel. Thank god, 16:10.
s.yu - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkYeah, the chassis is nice, if there's one matching the specs of the Blade 15 Studio Edition it'll probably be cheaper than that, then I'd choose this. The current tier is overkill for me.
Bulat Ziganshin - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkthere are some errors here compared to https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ProArt-StudioBook-Pro...

Ro_Ja - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkHow can some people be blind? It's not 1080p, it's 1200p!! It's 16:10!
