School is a place, but education is a process. From kindergarten all the way through graduate school, today’s students learn, study, create, and connect wherever they are. That might be in a classroom, a dorm room, a family room, or a library. No matter where they are, they need the tools to keep up with their work, create projects, and stay connected with their communities. Back-to-school season has arrived, and it’s time to assess your family’s technology needs and make sure they’re being met.

Whether you’re sending a kid off to college or prepping your house for remote learning, VivoBook, ZenBook, ExpertBook, ROG, and TUF Gaming products have your needs covered. Our laptops, desktops, wireless routers, monitors, and broad range of peripherals are all tailored to meet your family’s educational needs—and maybe even a few of their wants, too.

A laptop for every learner

Lots of folks are learning from home these days, and for a wide variety of reasons. Some are earning their college degrees through an online program. Kids often do their classwork through remote learning sessions. Other families have opted for homeschooling.

Whatever school looks like in your home, you’ll need enough PCs to handle the needs of the different learners in your family. Our VivoBooks and ZenBooks are all set to go for the fall semester. Our ExpertBook B9450 is ready to help college students stay on track with a busy courseload—and make the transition into the professional world, too. Finally, our StudioBook 15 and StudioBook 17 can empower your student’s developing content-creation skills thanks to their high-resolution screen and powerful components.

VivoBook Flip 14 TM420

Who says an affordable laptop can’t be stylish and convenient to use? Our new VivoBook Flip 14 is a portable and convertible laptop that’s light on the pocketbook, making it a great choice for families that need a Windows laptop for school.

The VivoBook Flip 14 is just 18.2mm thick and only weighs 3.3 lbs, so it’s comfortable to hold and an easy traveling companion. A powerful and efficient AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU handles processing duties, and we pair it up with 8GB of RAM. This combination will readily handle everything you or your child needs for school, from virtual class meetings to web apps and project creation.

The VivoBook Flip 14 is designed top to bottom for flexibility. It has a 360° hinge that lets you use it in a variety of modes. Small hands often prefer interacting with a PC in tablet mode, so they might prefer to flip the screen all the way over and use its 1920×1080 touchscreen. It has ASUS Pen support, as well, so if someone in the family has a creative itch, they can use a stylus to make beautiful digital art. Tent mode is convenient for watching lessons or kicking back with a video, and laptop mode opens up the full potential of the VivoBook’s keyboard and touchpad.

ZenBook 13 UX325

For a family PC that travels anywhere, check out the ZenBook 13. This petite performer offers outsized battery life and functionality well beyond what you might expect from its its 13.99mm thin chassis and lightweight 2.45lb frame.

A cutting-edge, power-sipping 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor and 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM help to provide up to 22 hours of time away from an outlet, as does the 1W display. This low-power Full HD panel maximizes battery life while still delivering 450 nits of brightness. The ZenBook 13 will only need infrequent connections to its charger to handle the needs of the different learners in your household.

The ZenBook 13 makes the most of its compact profile. Our edge-to-edge keyboard design makes sure there’s space for comfortably sized keys, and the ErgoLift hinge raises the rear of the laptop as you open it so that you can type at a natural angle. With a press of a button, you can switch the touchpad into NumberPad 2.0 mode, revealing an illuminated numeric keypad on the touchpad so that you can quickly enter data or perform calculations. Anyone in your house taking a math class or making heavy use of Excel will appreciate this accurate and easy input. A Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C port opens up a world of possibilities. It’ll easily connect to an external display, and as it’s wired for USB Power Delivery it can charge up your other devices.

If you like these specs but prefer a slightly larger chassis, take a peek at the ZenBook 14. It retains the 13.9mm-thin chassis of the smaller model, but gives you a wider layout and a bit more screen space to play with.

ExpertBook B9450

Style is a very personal thing. For some, it’s about eye-catching designs and bold statements. For others, it’s about communicating the right values. People entering a competitive workforce often end up thinking twice about bringing their old college laptop along with them to job interviews. In your back-to-school shopping this year, you might need to help someone get a laptop with style—business style.

The ExpertBook B9450 has the understated good looks of a bespoke suit. Its deep blue finish and smoked chrome logo reward close inspection without drawing attention to themselves, while the laptop’s chiseled corners indicate the careful craftsmanship that went into its construction.

Thanks to an efficient Intel Core i7-10510 CPU and a 66Whr battery, the B9450 has astounding battery life. It soldiered through 13 hours and 10 minutes of constant use in our real-world testing. That’s more than enough juice to take a college student through a full day of classes, or a young professional through a lengthy business trip. That outsized battery life doesn’t come at the expense of portability, though. This 14” laptop checks in at an incredibly lightweight 2.19lb.

ProArt StudioBook 15 and ProArt StudioBook 17

If you or your teen are hitting the performance limits of the household PC, it might be time to get an upgrade. You don’t want to get frustrated and turn away from a promising hobby or career just because of long export times, slow renders, or uneven software performance. Our ProArt StudioBook 15 and ProArt StudioBook 17 laptops offer all the hardware creators need in one portable package.

The six-core, twelve-thread Intel Core i7-9750H CPU in these laptops brings the strong balance of single-core performance and multithreaded muscle that’s so important for demanding applications like Adobe Creative Suite. We pair this CPU with a 32GB pool of DDR4 RAM so that creators can work with large projects and high-resolution assets. A GeForce RTX 2060 lets the StudioBook 15 and 17 take advantage of powerful GPU acceleration, and a pair of 512GB NVMe SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration provide plentiful high-speed storage.

The crown jewel of the StudioBook 15 and 17 is a bright, high-resolution 3840×2160 display that’s ready to go for content creation. It covers 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut, and it’s Pantone Validated at the factory to achieve an average Delta E value of less than 1.5. From the moment your teen or college student first opens the lid, this screen will deliver the accurate colors they need for their projects.

ROG Strix GA15

Not every student wants to take their gaming system with them to class. If you or your learner prefer desktop power from a battlestation, here’s another contender with a very reasonable price tag: the ROG Strix GA15. This slim desktop is dorm-room ready and bursting at the seams with potent gaming hardware.

One of AMD’s Ryzen processors takes the helm in the GA15. This unit features the beastly AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU.

The GA15’s case is carefully crafted for convenience and conquest. A sturdy carrying handle makes it easy to move, while a cunningly-hidden hook provides a secure location for your teen to hang up their headphones. Wide vents along the front and top panels allow for cooling air to move quickly through the chassis without excessive fan noise. With Aura Sync, you or your teen can customize and coordinate the RGB LED lighting in the case’s interior and in a diagonal slash across the front panel.

ZenWiFi AX

In some homes, one wireless router just doesn’t quite cover every room. Sometimes it’s just the size of the house, but more often there are elements like old foundation walls, metal and concrete construction materials, or large appliances that could all dampen the connection between your devices and the router. The ZenWiFi AX is a drop-in solution for homes where your family isn’t getting the Wi-Fi signal it needs in one or more important rooms.

The ZenWiFi AX comprises a pair of AX6600 Wi-Fi 6 routers that work together to make a mesh network. Place one next to your modem and the other in that particularly hard-to-reach corner of your home, and you’ll have a great internet connection throughout. The routers will seamlessly connect devices to whichever access point provides the best signal, even if you move those devices around the house. A wall-to-wall wireless network will let your family take full advantage of the space available to them. If someone needs a little privacy to get some work done, they can find a quiet corner and still have the stable internet connection that they need.

Our AI-powered noise canceling technology will minimize any noise in the signal, like keyboard clicking, the rhythmic thump of your washing machine, or your kid brother doing that infuriating thing where he won’t stop clicking his pen.

Because the AI Noise-Canceling Mic Adapter doesn’t require any installed software to function, you can use it with a wide range of devices. Whether you’re presenting to your classmates through a laptop, talking with coworkers on a smartphone, or chatting with other players on your Nintendo Switch, this unassuming little adapter will work to make you sound your best.
