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
Easier to use and more precise input with scroll, rotate, and zoom
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.
Extra-strict ASUSPRO™ reliability testing standards
Business and organizational users demand higher standards and greater reliability, so all ASUSPRO Series laptops are strictly quality-tested to much higher industry standards then mainstream laptops. They prove highly durable in drop tests, hinge cycle tests and panel pressure testing. They also ship with an anti-shock hard drive that includes a triple protection mechanism to ensure data is always safe.
Anti-shock hard drive – triple protection keeps data safe from damage
1. Stringent 3-axial/6-angular shock and vibration test
PU301 hard drives are subjected to rigorous shock and vibration trials in accordance with surrogate testing to beyond common industry standards.
2. Motion sensor defense mechanism
G-sensor hardware and hard drive protection software pre-empt imminent impacts as an additional line of defense in keeping data safe and secure. They use a 3D digital accelerometer with three levels of sensitivity: off, normal and high. The latter is activated by default and impact detection remains on at all times.
3. Metal bracket air bag
Metal brackets add structural strength around hard drives, protecting storage beyond mainstream standards. Shock-absorbing cushions also act as additional shields to protect data in the event of shocks or drops.
Improved privacy with fingerprint scanning
Laptops incorporating fingerprint scanning take data access authorization and protection to a higher level with a personal touch. RF electronic scanner imaging reads fingerprint patterns, using sensors that are less affected by skin surface conditions, including dry, worn, calloused, dirty or oily skin, which may impair the ability of other sensor technologies to accurately detect fingerprints.
ASUS Secure Delete erases data permanently
Offers an easy-to-use interface and allows users to permanently remove confidential data from the recycle bin by simply launching Secure Delete and dragging and dropping files to be erased.
Keep data safe, plus trace and locate stolen laptops with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology and Computrace® LoJack® for Laptops
The ASUSPRO P ESSENTIAL Series utilizes Intel® Anti-Theft Technology to help disable access to the operating system should your laptop ever get lost or stolen, keeping it safe and secure. Laptops are also bundled with Computrace® LoJack® for Laptops by Absolute® Software, giving you the power to remotely locate them. You can also remotely lock and delete data before it falls into the wrong hands. The LoJack® for Laptops dedicated theft recovery team works with local law enforcement to track down and recover lost or stolen laptops.
