Summary

The UX581 is one of the first laptops to ever feature a 4K UHD OLED touch screen on the market. Moreover, its ScreenPad Plus adds another 4K IPS touch screen to give the device more display area than any similarly-sized laptop has ever delivered. The ScreenPad Plus also brings new possibilities to interact with the laptop. Its numeric keypad / touchpad combo solution is elegant as it is utilitarian.

Sentiment Score[*] 64%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The UX581 is relatively power efficient when considering that it has to power two displays. Power consumption ranges from 19 W to 35 W when idling on desktop compared to only 3 W to 11 W on Asus' smaller ZenBook 15 UX533. High volume settings will cause the front corners of the chassis and clickpad to vibrate.
