Asus VivoBook 15 Review

For those who want to buy a new generation ultrabook, this time we are evaluating the VivoBook 15 from Asus . VivoBook 15, which is prepared for those who both take up less space in terms of its dimensions, but expect it to provide more use as a result of their work, on the other hand, for those who want it with a stylish design, we have the X512U model. Now let’s see what this model offers us, what kind of features it shows.

Beautiful Design, Large Screen

The Asus VivoBook 15 X512 is a very pleasing model. Available in 4 different color options, the laptop appeals to users from all walks of life with its blue, gray, silver and coral colors. Young people, students and employees can find their own color, and they can comfortably keep them all day long with its ultrabook standard structure.

The laptop has a very slim build and light body. VivoBook 15, which can fit a large display area in small sizes, especially with its screen, has a 15.6 inch screen. With the NanoEdge screen , this model uses frames that are thinned from 4 sides, thus achieving a screen / body ratio of 88 percent. In the meantime, let’s also say that although the frames are thin, there is a HD resolution camera on the upper edge.

We said that the screen size of the VivoBook 15 X512 is 15.6 inches . In the model where IPS is preferred as the display panel, thus a wide viewing angle is also provided. Offering a field of view up to 178 degrees, this model is also pleasing with its color saturation. In the meantime , let’s also point out that the screen is in Full HD resolution.

Ergonomic Use with ErgoLift keyboard

The hinge system, where the screen is connected to the body, also has a new hinge design, which Asus calls ErgoLift . In this way, when you lean the screen backward, the hinges create a 2-degree keyboard tilt, which provides a convenient typing environment. You know, on full-size keyboards we can provide similar tilt with a ratchet on the back of the keyboard. You can think of ErgoLift like this. Asus offered this opportunity in VivoBook 15 with ErgoLift.

By the way, the arrangement and use of the keys is also very functional. It is also an advantage to have a numeric keypad on it. Let’s also say that the keys have backlighting.

We mentioned that VivoBook 15 X512 has a thin structure. However, you have more connection options than many equivalent models. Connections include 2 USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.1 Type-A, 1 USB Type-C port, and a full-size HDMI or included for easy image transfer . On the other hand, there are also microSD card slots with the headset. Wireless connections of the laptop include Wi-Fi in the 802.11ac standard and Bluetooth 4.1.

VivoBook 15 X512 also has a fingerprint reader . You do not need to enter a password every time to log in via this sensor, which is located just in the corner of the touchpad. You can enter by simply touching this sensor with your finger.

Suitable for Daily Use

Now let’s come to the technical details of VivoBook 15 X512. The laptop has models that offer different configuration options. The laptop, which we have with Intel’s i7-8550U processor from 8th generation processor family , can increase its speed up to 4 GHz with this 4-core processor. The laptop, which has 2400 MHz frequency 4 GB RAM and 1 TB capacity disk, is prepared for individuals who need large storage space with this model. If you want SSD rather than large capacity, then you can also choose VivoBook 15’s models with M.2 SSD .

On the graphics side, Asus includes the GeForce MX130 graphics processor powered by NVIDIA’s 2 GB GDDR5 memory for those who want to play games besides the Intel built-in graphics unit , so as we said at the beginning, it aims to meet the needs of students and employees.

So, how is the battery life of VivoBook 15 X512? Asus used a 2-cell lithium polymer battery in this model. Asus, which brings fast charging support to this, can provide 60 percent charge in about 50 minutes . The laptop, which can offer all-day battery life at the point of use, is thus suitable for mobile work.

Finally, let’s also mention that VivoBook 15 X512 has ASUS SonicMaster technology for sound .

Summing up

VivoBook 15 X512 is a beautiful model with its technical components designed for daily use and supporting ultrabook-standard mobility with a large screen. Those who are looking for a laptop computer, who want to take wide images with thin screen frames, and to provide comfortable use and transportation, can choose the VivoBook 15 X512. As we said in the review, VivoBook 15 also has different configuration options. If you have different preferences in this design line, you can also evaluate those models.
