Reviews for the Asus VivoBook 15 A512FL

ASUS Vivobook Ultra A512 review - Slim, thin and light value-priced laptop for the masses
Source: Tech Nave English
In conclusion, the ASUS Vivobook Ultra A512 offers plenty of features in a slim and thin package that should suit most desktop replacement purposes like a student or professional (perhaps an accountant who likes fingerprint security and a built-in numeric keypad?). That being said, it isn’t really that premium, not suited for road warriors due to the short battery life or for the more hardcore gamers.

ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 vs HP Pavilion 15-cs2010TX: Battle of the budget ultrabooks
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Let’s not forget that the ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 also comes with 4 distinct yet vibrant colors. It comes in my favorite Coral Crush, the sleek Peacock Blue, Slate Grey, and the very reflective Transparent Silver. The HP Pavilion 15-cs2010TX comes with only one color – silver.

70% [Review] Asus VivoBook Ultra A512 – Colourfully Chic
Source: Hitech Century English
As it stands, the Asus VivoBook Ultra A512 fulfills its aspirations of being an affordable workhorse notebook and features an excellent display and a decent processor though this is tempered by the need for more RAM, a plasticky chassis and middling battery life. If you are on the hunt for an affordable workhorse notebook that costs less than RM3,000 and can live with its modest foibles, the VivoBook Ultra A512 is right up your alley.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.
