Product Description

ASUS Pro Essential PU301LA Laptop

Ultraportable, subtle, stylish

Starting from 1.75kg, the PU301 uses a one-piece build, creating a subtle and completely consistent look. The design extends to the underside and removes unneeded clutter with a stylish brushed metal finish.

True-comfort keyboard and full numeric keypad increase productivity

Business places great importance on keyboards, as they are vital for professional communications. ASUS engineers have fine-tuned the PU301's keyboard, providing better click ratios and 2.3mm travel distance to maintain comfort during long hours of work. The keyboard also provides a full numeric cluster with page up/page down keys to increase efficiency when doing calculations and reading long documents.

47% bigger multi-gesture touchpad

The touchpad has been enlarged to 107 x 61mm, matching the screen ratio for an attractive look. Its 47% larger than touchpads on similar laptops from other brands and supports responsive and accurate multi-touch control. With more gestures detected, it effectively replaces the mouse, offering an intuitive input option. Multi-touch input allows effortless accuracy without a mouse, including two-finger web page scroll, image zoom/rotate and three-finger tapping to mimic a right-click. Workflow is streamlined with gesture control, especially multi-step tasks such as presentations and research projects.

Anti-glare display for comfortable viewing

Matte screen materials prevent unwanted reflections to reduce eye fatigue. They also stop unsightly fingerprint smudges for more attractive presentations. To prolong productivity, ergonomic, textured, palm rest areas provide a pleasant and solid feel so you can keep working without slowing down.
