Another of the new laptop announced by Asus at the Computex 2017 is the Asus VivoBook Pro 15, it is looking like a steal, starting at just a shade over $800. This 15-inch brushed aluminum notebook comes out with NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics,an Intel quad-core processor and , with an optional 4K display.

This new notebook comes with an option of Intel’s Optane memory, meaning that you will get the capacity of a hard disk drive with the performance levels of an SSD. It’s the first laptop announced to use the Optane, and we’re looking forward to getting our hands on it to give it a proper work out. The interesting part about this device is that Asus has added a 4K UHD display with 100 percent sRGB colour gamut along with Harman Kardon-certified audio speakers. Asus has added fast charging in the battery and the touchpad also has a fingerprint scanner (optional) for those who want to use Windows Hello.
