Asus ProArt StudioBook 16 OLED Review Highlights


The massive 16-inch OLED display distinguishes the ProArt StudioBook. The colours appear more natural and lifelike, and the brightness is ideal for any situation. The CalMan colourimeter is pre-installed on the StudioBook display, and it is Pantone validated for accuracy.

It has a full-sized backlit keyboard with mushy keys and short actuation points, making typing a pleasurable experience. The trackpad may also be used as a stylus pad. Then there's the dial, which you can use in Firefox and a few other apps to change the volume and brightness, scroll the page, and cycle between tabs.

The ProArt Studiobook is made to last. The ProArt logo is etched in the centre of the lid in a stealthy, uniform matte black finish. It has passed MIL-STD 810H durability testing and weighs 2.4 kg. It has a solid feel to it.

Asus claims 8.5 hours of battery life from a 90Whr battery, but in everyday use without running intensive software like Premiere Pro, the battery life ranged from 6 to 7 hours. However, if you're performing any serious creative work on this laptop, you'll need to plug it into a 16A outlet, which isn't usually easily available in Indian homes.

The Studiobook took 3m26s to render the Blender BMW benchmark, whereas the MSI GE76 Raider took 3m58s. This is, of course, when the CPUs on both PCs are being benchmarked. In terms of thermals, it gets very noisy while rendering videos with the cooling profile set to 'Full Speed Mode,' yet we've never felt a cooler laptop.

If you prefer to stick to Windows for your work, the Studiobook 16 OLED is a compelling option for creators. The laptop doesn't skimp on performance or certifications that ensure artists' comfort. It's as powerful as high-end gaming laptops, but it comes with all of the necessary calibrations for precise output.
