The Asus VivoBook 14 hits the sweet spot, for the most part, when you consider the features and performance you get for this price. The model we reviewed has an official selling price (MOP) of Rs. 54,990 but this does fluctuate a bit with offers and during sales, which can bring it lower to even Rs. 48,990, which is what it's going for currently. It's tough to find any other 14-inch laptop with these specifications at this online price. Add to that, the excellent build quality, modern design, and compact size, and you have yourself a very good work laptop.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
