Create

This laptop is part of our Create range, so you be certain that it has the power to help you bring your ideas to life. It's specially designed for graphic design, music production, photo editing, and film making. 

Portable premium 

The Asus K501UB features a premium brushed aluminium finish that looks great wherever you're working. The aluminium construction helps it to weigh an impressively lightweight 2 kg, so you can slip it into a bag or case and carry it around on a busy day without worry.

You won't have to worry about looking for a plug socket during the day as, despite its compact dimensions, the Asus K50 has a seven hour battery life.
Intel® Core™ performance


From photo editing and music production to writing essays and managing databases, you can work at your best thanks to the Intel® Core™ i7 processor.

It runs demanding software quickly and lets you focus on the task at hand without worrying about your laptop slowing you down.

Full HD visuals


With both a Full HD screen and dedicated NVIDIA graphics card, the K50 is more than capable of delivering impressive visuals for all your multimedia; whether you're streaming films, viewing photos, or simply browsing the web.

It also makes it the ideal laptop for editing photos and videos on the go, as the 1080p resolution lets you pick out fine detail and see colours naturally.

Hybrid storage


There's more than enough room for photos, films, software and documents on the K50's spacious 1 TB solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD). Unlike normal hard drives, an SSHD features a large memory cache that stores your most accessed data for faster loading.

An SSHD can help to run demanding software much more smoothly, so you can access what you need to, the second you need it.

Microsoft Office & Internet security

This PC doesn't come with a full version of Microsoft Office or Internet Security. But don't worry, you'll find great savings on software with the bundles available on the ‘Top Deals' tab on this page.

Design, battery life, memory.
The screen. I returned this product the day after I bought it. The quality of the image was far below expectations considering the price and the specs. I wanted to be able to do photo editing however the colours on the screen were totally dead, dark and without any vibrancy. Both my old laptop and my samsung tablet showed far better colours next to it. I could not live with that so I returned it.
