Now, the company has launched a new laptop called Vivobook 15 X512 under the Vivobook lineup. Price at Rs 65,000, the laptop comes equipped with the latest generation processors and updated Ergo-hinge design from the company. The company has also launched a 14-inch variant of the laptop and the price starts at Rs 32,000, for the base variant. On paper, the X512 gets almost everything that makes a laptop being worthy of being called a Vivobook but does it have what it takes to be worthy of the price, the company is asking for the laptop.

More information

There is an option for discrete graphics, and as already noted the Vivobook 15 X512 handle up to an 8th generation Inter Core i7 Whiskey Lake U processor. The only model I could find on sale in the UK at the moment is the £429,00 (Inc. VAT) version, which lacks discrete graphics and is powered by an Intel Pentium Gold 4415 processor with 4GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, a 1,920-by-1080 display and no keyboard backlight.

Display quality

ASUS Vivobook 15 F512 (X512) is equipped with a Full HD TN panel with a model number Innolux N156HGA-EA3. Its diagonal is 15.6", and the resolution 1920 ×1080 pixels. The screen ratio is 16:9, and we are looking at the pixel density of - 142 ppi, and a pitch of 0.18 ×0.18 mm. The screen turns into Retina when viewed at distance equal to or greater than 60cm (24") ( from this distance one's eye stops differentiating the separate pixels, and it is normal for looking at a laptop.

Design

First thing that I felt is the shell that seems to change colour. The review that we got is Peacock Blue variant. Just like PeackPe feathers the ASUS Vivobook X512 shell colour varies a little based on angle at which you look at it. Look at it with straight eye and it looks blue. As you open the lid the shell gradually shifts toward purple blue colour. The clean shell looks premium even though it is made of plastic. This kind of reminds me those colourful Sony laptops from the 2000s that became very popular (During the time when laptops used to be black or white).

Performance

ASUS Vivobook 15 X512 is a Windows 10 Home laptop with a 15.60-inch display that has a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels. It is powered by a Core i3 processor and it comes with 16GB of RAM. The ASUS Vivobook 15 X512 packs 1TB of HDD storage. It come with 4 USB ports, HDMI port, Multi Card Sot, Headphone and Mc Combo jack port.

It's a mixed bag, the Vivobook 15 offers strong performance in a sleek chassis along with solid speakers and relatively comfortable keyboard, all for a reasonable price, That's the good. The bad is that the Vivobook 15 improved screen pad 2.0 still has some problems and the main 15-inch panel is quite dull.

As a hardware manufacturer, Asus has very good name in the technology market. Nowadays almost most of the motherboards are made by Asus. Their laptops and other peripheral device are also very good. The most important thing about Asus phone is their built quality and design.

Do Asus laptops last long?

Take the same Asus laptop and put it in the hand of a toddler. How long do you expect it to last. The manufacturers of the devices put in the computers expect you will get 3 - 5 years of use out their storage device, before it fails.
