Reviews for the Asus VivoBook 15 F512JA-AS34
Source: PC Mag
The Asus VivoBook 15 won’t turn any heads with its performance or design, but all things considered, it’s a decent offering for the cost. If it weren’t for the poor screen, it might well be the standout we tested in this price range, since it is a touch faster than its peers. The storage capacity is also pretty restrictive, but that’s not unique to this machine at this price. On the positive end, its keyboard is pretty good, the battery lasts long enough to be useful, and it has an above-average port selection. If you need the essentials and won’t be put off by a couple of concessions, this VivoBook 15 model can do the job as an affordable daily driver for simple home and office tasks.
