Let’s begin with the feature that stands out, its detachable 15.6″ 4k Ultra HD Touchscreen. In terms of size, this is ideal because it is not too big to become a burden but also not so small that it loses its functionality as a laptop. Coming to its 4K (3840 x 2160) Ultra HD resolution like Google Pixelbook 12in
, you can see every detail without compromising the quality. And the best part is the highly responsive touch. When detached, you won’t feel that it was ever a laptop. It gives the feel of a well-built laptop with good memory and a fast CPU.
The screen also has an HD Webcam, which is a must-have in the era of remote work and zoom meetings.
Asus 2-in-1 packs a powerful Core-i7 processor, namely Intel 8th i7-8565U. The processor has a maximum frequency of 1.8 GHz, which is quite good, especially when coupled with an 8 GB Cache. Overall, this processor can handle pretty much anything you throw at it. Be it office tasks, games, or anything else. But a CPU alone isn’t enough to make the device fast and ready for everything. For that, we need to move to the next section.
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
The 2-in-1 Q535 has a dedicated graphics card, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050. This covers the GPU front and works in conjunction with the CPU for a complete experience that is equal parts enjoyable in laptop or tablet mode. You won’t feel anything slowing down. One thing to note here is the fact that this Asus model can play many games, currently available in the market. But if you want the highest refresh rates, you may need to look elsewhere because this laptop is primarily a mid-range office/home device, not a gaming laptop.
Memory: 2 TB SSD Storage + 16 GB RAM
The Asus Q535 boasts huge storage of 2 TB, which is enough for things anyone needs to store on their laptop. You don’t need to buy an external storage device because your laptop gives you enough storage for anything that you want to store, without any worry.
In the same sense, its DDR4 16 GB RAM is large enough to handle any heavy task you throw at it, without creating a bottleneck. Faster than its predecessors, this DDR4 RAM can keep up with intensive gaming.
In addition to both of these, Q535 has a 256 GB Flash Memory.
Connectivity: Bluetooth + USB Ports
Asus 2-in1 Q535 is a laptop built for connectivity. Unlike many modern laptops that lose their ports in the name of becoming sleek, Q535 wears them as badges of honor. Let’s start with the 3 USB ports, one of them being 2.0 USB while two of them being 3.0. These ports allow for faster data transfers and easy connectivity with external devices that use the USB port, like mouse, and Flash Drives, among many more.
This laptop also has Bluetooth 4.2, ensuring seamless wireless connectivity with other Bluetooth devices. The 802.11ac Wi-Fi module allows for faster internet, with an upper limit of 1.3 Gbps.
Asus Q535 is a versatile laptop with many features other than the mentioned above, like it has Windows 10 pre-installed and is updatable to Windows 11 – if the user prefers. In addition, the trackpad and the keyboard are also worth mentioning. Even without an external mouse, you can perform most of your tasks with the built-in trackpad. As per the keyboard, you will not feel a strain on your fingers even after long usage. It also has a battery timing of 3-4 hours, which isn’t enough if you’re traveling a lot.
Lest we forget, we should mention its hinge, which makes it flexible for usage in any position you feel comfortable in.
From all the features mentioned above, we can say that Q535 is a decent laptop. In raw performance, its high-performing Core-i7 processor, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, DDR4 16 GB RAM, and a huge SSD storage of 2 TB make it ideal for office/home usage. Regular users will not have any issues whatsoever. But, gamers who enjoy graphic-intensive games will not be completely satisfied.
As per its detachable screen, we feel like it’s more than just a gimmick with actual usage possibilities. Like someone may need to use the touchscreen function only and not need the extra burden of the lower section. They can easily detach the screen, use it, and reattach it when done. And for those who need to type a lot, they can use the built-in keyboard that’s very comfortable on the hands. For connectivity, it has enough physical and wireless ports to be useful even in the most versatile office environments.
Overall, in our opinion, Asus 2-in-1 Q535 justifies its price. We would recommend it to anyone who needs a relatively lightweight laptop with a detachable touchscreen. It can handle processor-intensive tasks, so you can work stress-free.
