Model: The Asus VivoBook 14 is a compact laptop that immerses users in whatever they set out to do. Its new frameless four-sided NanoEdge display boasts an ultra-slim 5.7 mm bezel, giving an amazing 87 % screen-to-body ratio for supremely immersive visuals. The new ErgoLift hinge design also tilts the keyboard up for more comfortable typing. The VivoBook 14 is powered by the latest Intel Core i5 processor with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX230 graphics unit and dual storage drives to help to get things done with the least amount of fuss. Its dual-storage design gives both superfast data performance and large storage capacity. It also features Intel’s latest Optane memory technology, so apps load faster and multitasking feels smoother. User will get the best of both worlds, with SSD-like levels of performance and the large storage space afforded by a traditional hard drive. The new frameless four-sided NanoEdge display keeps dimensions down to a minimum, giving the VivoBook 14 a footprint that’s appreciably smaller than its predecessor. It takes up less space on the desk, leaving more room for users. Besides that, the new frameless four-sided NanoEdge design gives the VivoBook 14 an almost-bezel-free display with vast amounts of screen area and extremely immersive visuals, for work and play. Even with the ultra-slim bezel, a pleasing HD camera is accommodated on the top bezel for video chat with family and friends a world away.

What’s more, it’s available in four unique finishes to suit the user’s style. User can choose Transparent Silver for a sophisticated look, or go for Slate Grey for a more understated approach. They can set the trend with the uniquely iridescent Peacock Blue: a unique option that changes color when the user looks at it from different angles. And if the user really wants to stand out, there’s Coral Crush with its bright finish. As for connectivity, the VivoBook 14 is equipped with the reversible USB Type-C port, featuring an any-way-up design that makes connecting devices as easy as possible. It also delivers data transfer speeds that are up to 10x faster than older USB 2.0 connections! There are USB 3.1 and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and a microSD card reader, so users can easily connect all their current peripherals, displays and projectors with zero hassle. The VivoBook 14 keeps users going for longer thanks to a high-quality lithium-polymer battery for all-day computing. Integrated Asus exclusive, the Asus Battery Health Charging technology helps protect the battery from overcharging. This prolongs battery lifespan and reduce the chance of damage from battery swelling, keeping the battery in tip-top condition. As a conclusion, the Asus VivoBook 14 X412FJ MX230 is both stylish and delivers decent performance. It is compact but still allows users to see more with its slim edge display. It is suitable for users who are looking for a laptop which is lightweight, portable and decent in performance.
