    The flagship of the line is ASUS ROG STRIX Scar 17 GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Edition. As the name suggests, the laptop with a 17.3-inch screen (300 Hz/3 MS) received the maximum configuration, including an Intel Core i9-10980-HK processor with a frequency of up to 5.3 GHz and a video card overclocked to 1560 MHz. At the same time, the thickness of its case is only 1.5 mm more than the base version. Six heat pipes are responsible for cooling the model. Dust and small particles are removed from the housing through specially designed tunnels in the fan housings and do not accumulate on the radiator fins.

    Keystone II technology allows you to use an NFC keychain to speed up app launches and store secret files in a hidden section of the Shadow Drive. When you remove the gadget, the laptop can instantly switch to "invisible" mode - collapse all windows, mute the sound and log out of the windows account. The Cloud Profile function activates the user's personal settings from the ROG ID account on all compatible devices.

    The price and start date of sales of all configurations of the updated line of ASUS ROG Strix laptops will be announced by the manufacturer later.

      ASUS has introduced a new compact laptop VivoBook 14 (X403). Its body is made in accordance with the military reliability standard MIL-STD-810G. Thanks to the thin frame 14-inch Full HD-screen takes 87% of the surface area of the cover. Another feature was the capacious battery that provides up to 24 hours of battery life from a single charge.

      VivoBook 14 is made in a metal case, available in two design options: classic silver-blue and powder-pink. With a thickness of 16.5 mm laptop weight is only 1.3 kg. Thin screen frame NanoEdge allowed to reduce the size compared to the previous model, so it became even more convenient to carry the device.
      The laptop was subjected to a number of severe tests for compliance with the military standard of the US army MIL-STD 810G, including work in the mountains, in conditions of high humidity and temperature, which indicates its reliability and durability.

      The device is equipped with a four-cell battery for 72 W * h, providing up to 24 hours of battery life away from the outlet. ASUS Battery Health Charging proprietary technology protects the battery from overcharging, extending its life and preventing possible damage.

      The width of the frame around the screen in the narrowest place is only 4.1 mm. the webcam is located in the usual place at the top of the lid. The display with Full HD (1920x1080) resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio has wide viewing angles and anti-reflective coating. Video technology ASUS Tru2Life transforms every pixel in the frame, and intelligent algorithms improve the contrast of the image by 150%, increasing its clarity.

      The maximum package VivoBook 14 includes an Intel Core i7 processor of the eighth generation, 16 GB of RAM and a solid state drive with a capacity of up to 1 TB. Dual band 802.11 ac Wi-Fi module provides a high-speed Internet connection.

      Vivobook series laptops are positioned as a solution for young and active users looking for a reliable laptop that will not run out of power in two hours. ASUS VivoBook 15 X512UF surely fits into these requirements, pleases with opportunities and small dimensions.

      External rigor
      Vivobook 15 design combines functionality and minimalism. Made of the smooth matte plastic cover is thin: in the closed state, it reacts to an attempt to squeeze it with your finger, and in the open — on twisting. As for the material, there are almost no traces left on it, and in extreme cases, they are easy to erase.
      When opening the laptop at an angle greater than 90 degrees, the lower part of the cover acts as a stand — it rests on the surface, lifting the keyboard unit for more convenient text or commands. The feature is interesting, but I would like more because the body rises just a few millimeters. Nevertheless, this hinge is a plus, it is possible to "play" with the height.

      Display diagonal of 15.6 inches is made by IPS technology. Its calibration is closer to cold shades. The viewing angles are not amazing, but otherwise, there are no complaints — a good, high-quality screen. The side frames are elegant — thinner than 6 mm. That, however, did not prevent to install the webcam on its usual place in the middle of the upper edge. With this design, the display area-to-body ratio is 88% and the laptop feels very small. The device weighs only 1,600 grams: put it in the backpack behind and not feel. Compared to other solutions with the same screen diagonal, VivoBook 15 is more compact, and this is a big plus for those who are used to working on the road.
      The keyboard has a short soft stroke, and also has three levels of illumination brightness, which can be controlled by a combination of Fn+F7. When the system "understands" that do not use keys, the backlight turns off until, until will not resume entering commands. The light intensity at the maximum level seemed excessive, and the first value is enough.

      The layout at first glance is classic, but there are nuances in the work. For example, some users are accustomed to the fact that Backspace is usually longer, and "arrows" and a number of F — thicker. Digital block in VivoBook 15 retained, although its buttons are clipped slightly in width. You get used to this concept quickly, but users with large fingers will complain about erroneous command input because of the size of the keys. This is the price of compactness. The rest of the keys are of the usual size: it is convenient to type text on the main block, the processing of commands is correct, the distance between the buttons allows to minimize typos.
      The touch panel is medium in size, its coating is tactile almost no different from the body material. The trackpad is pressed to click and requires average effort, so accidental clicks are unlikely. There were no complaints about the capabilities and accuracy of gesture input during testing.

      Performance and autonomy
      Thanks to the Intel Core i7 of the eighth generation in conjunction with a fast SSD, the laptop instantly wakes up, no matter how much time spent with the lid closed. But the graphics card is not enough stars — with NVIDIA GeForce MX130 is not up to the top games. It is suitable only for casual entertainment in medium settings. On the other hand, the device is not a gaming one — it would be strange to demand high performance from it. Work and benchmarks laptop stands quietly, coolers and if included, they are almost inaudible.
      In addition, the choice of hardware manufacturer provides good autonomy. With mixed use in the "Improved battery" mode, constant connection to Wi-Fi, working with text locally and online, downloading files and installing utilities for testing, the battery confidently lasts five hours. The complete adapter allows you to charge your laptop from zero to 60% in 50 minutes. The adapter itself is small and does not resemble a brick — it is a separate plus. Under full load without any limiting modes, discharge is faster — for example, in two and a half hours in PCMark 8 with an emphasis on the battery charge level fell from 100 to 19%. The laptop was heated, but not critical.
