Asus Announces the VivoBook Pro N580

Asus announced the VivoBook Pro N580, a thin and lightweight Windows 10 laptop packed with high-end components. Designed for gaming and productive multitasking, the slim 15.6” laptop is powered by a 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad core processor running at 2.8GHz with a max turbo frequency of 3.8GHz. The VivoBook Pro N580 is outfitted with 16GB of DDR4 2,400MHz memory, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 4GB graphics card, 512GB SATA SSD, and a 16:9 aspect ratio full HD touchscreen.

Its left side contains an Ethernet port, a USB 3.0 connector, HDMI out, and a USB Type-C port. The right side is home to a pair of USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Wireless connectivity is handled via 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2.

The company stated that its intelligent dual-fan cooling system with copper heat pipes keeps system temperatures in check even under heavy workloads and intense gaming sessions. The eight automatically adjustable fan speeds provide maximum cooling efficiency while keeping noise to a minimum.

In addition to the HD touch display, the N580 also features a Harman Kardon-certified audio system, HD camera, fingerprint sensor, and active stylus support. Although details on battery life were not available, we do know this laptop is equipped with a three-cell (47Wh) Li-Ion battery. The VivoBook Pro's 4.85-pound weight and 0.81-inch thickness are impressive given the sheer amount of high-end components and features packed into this laptop.

The Asus VivoBook Pro N580 is available now for $1,299 from the Asus Store and other resellers.
