Opening up the laptop reveals the ProArt Studiobook's signature feature, the ASUS physical dial. Located just below the keyboard, this small knob provides an additional means of input for those working with creative apps. If you don't find much use for it, you will have to put up with the keyboard being located slightly farther away to make space.
It certainly gives off Microsoft Surface Dial vibes. It's possible to utilize this dial throughout Windows to adjust system settings on the fly, but it's also extremely handy in apps like those part of Adobe's Creative Suite. It's possible to improve workflow by moving across the timeline of Premiere Pro and After Effects projects or even selecting tools inside Photoshop.
Interestingly, to go alongside the dial is an additional button below the touchpad, bringing the total up to three. The touchpad itself is large enough for use with various applications. And should you need to do some typing on this notebook, you won't encounter any issues with the keyboard, but it won't win any awards.
