It was never better time to have a portable gaming: the available offer is excellent, but it is also constantly renewed, as evidenced by the new HP Omen 15.
The new generation of this team comes with changes in its design, but especially in its specifications, in which the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q shine with its own light.

Although it was born for the purpose of exploring the possibilities of ultrabooks, the ZenBook family of ASUS has gradually diversified to accommodate other types of laptops. During the last months, our machines have been as attractive as the Zenbook Flip UX360UA, an ambitious convertible that we really liked, or the Zenbook 3 Deluxe, a stylized team with a really interesting configuration.
Despite the obvious differences between some proposals and others within the ZenBook range, all of them have been designed with the same philosophy. And this causes that they have in common a very current design, in which stand out some measured frames and a contained thickness, as well as a careful finish. The ZenBook Pro UX550VD to which we dedicate this analysis is no exception. In fact, it strictly respects these precepts, but the most interesting thing is that it has its own personality. Let’s see why it deserves a little attention.
The rules of the game are the same for everyone: the higher resolution, graphic quality and cadence of images per second, the more satisfactory our experience is usually. Even being aware that there are titles that we can enjoy a lot, especially indie games, without the need to perform any technical boast.
It is likely that almost all gamers agree that the gameplay and their ability to have fun are the most important features of a video game. But if, in addition, we can enjoy it at 4K and with a sustained image rate of more than 60 FPS, better than better. Nobody rejects a pear in sweet. However, the hardware we currently need to play in these conditions is still expensive. Fortunately, if we settle for enjoying our titles at 1080p we have access to a wide range of machines at interesting prices. It is precisely in this scenario that we aspire to feel comfortable with the MSI laptop that we are going to analyze.
If we can say something with confidence about the technological progress of recent years, covering even more than a decade, is that the miniaturization of components and devices is reaching its highest (or microscopic, as you will see). And it seems that we still have to see in this sense, when from IBM they show us the smallest computer in the world.
Huawei has begun its presentation for this MWC18 with a new laptop where the premium design and the screen without just frames are the protagonists.

The laptop stands out for being light and having a careful design, without forgetting of course to offer interesting features inside.
