If you’re in the market for a thin, light, fast and very powerful laptop that also has a 4K/UHD  touch display (sorry Apple fans), then I can highly recommend the ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW.

I’ve owned mine since December 2015 and have been extremely impressed with it. Thanks to the Samsung SM951-NVMe M.2 which can read at up to 2150MB’s and write up to 1500MB’s, the system boots in about 1 second or less.

The laptop comes with Windows 10 home (upgraded 10 Pro) and 16GB’s of memory (upgraded to 24GB’s). While this laptop wasn’t designed for gaming, but thanks to the GeForce GTX 960M it can... just not at 4K.

Since I work with technology field, I use mine as a virtual (VMware) lab environment. My only minor complaints are, if bump the surface that the laptop is sitting on, there is a little wobble in the display and Windows 10 Display Scaling on the high-DPI display.

Below are the basic systems specifications:

Processor:       Intel Skylake Core i7-6700HQ 2.6 GHz, (quad core and hyper-threaded)
Mainboard       Intel HM170 (Skylake PCH-H)
Graphics:         NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M with 2G GDDR5 VRAM
Memory:          16 GB’s of DDR4-2132, 1063.8 MHz, Dual-Channel (8 GB integrated and 1x DIMM socket) Can be upgraded to 24GB’s
Display:         15.6'' 16:9 IPS UHD (3840 x 2160), 10-point capacitive, glossy IPS
Storage:         Samsung SM951 MZVPV512HDGL m.2 PCI-e, 512 GB
Networking:      Dual-band 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 ac, Built-in Bluetooth V4.0, 10/100 Base T
Interface’s:     3 USB 3.0 ports, 1 x USB 3.1 Type C port, 1 x Thunderbolt port, 1 x HDMI port, 1 x Microphone-in/Headphone-out jack

Considering you've been playing in our servers for a very long time, I find it hilarious that you are acting surprised that fag and cunt are punished by the language enforcer. Considering plenty of people have gotten punished for using those words in the server.

I'll modify your ban from 14 days to 1 day as you didn't circumvent the language enforcer this time.
