Reviews for the Asus VivoBook 15 KM513UA-L503TS
With the new VivoBook K Series range, Asus aims to bring some of the features normally found in premium ZenBook offerings at more accessible prices. The Asus VivoBook 15 KM513 offers the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U APU and a vibrant Samsung OLED HDR panel at a starting price of ₹62,990 (US$846). While this is surely an enticing proposition, some of the qualms that the VivoBook series is known for continue to remain.

The Asus VivoBook K15 OLED (KM513) is an excellent laptop for media consumption and is relatively slim and light for a 15.6-inch screen size. The six-core Ryzen 5 CPU offers plenty of power for multitasking and demanding workloads. Gaming is not this laptop's strong suit, which means you'll have to look at other options if this is a priority for you. Battery life is a little disappointing and I wish Asus had provided a full-sized card slot instead of a microSD slot.

The Asus VivoBook K15 OLED offers a large display that is sharp, bright and offers good colour accuracy. We would have liked to see slightly better performance in order to recommend this laptop for content creators, especially those working with video — especially considering how good the screen is to look at. It is worth noting that the Asus VivoBook K15 OLED is available in Intel and AMD variants. While the entry-level models that come with the Core i3 processors technically offer lower performance, they are also cost less than this model with the AMD Ryzen 5500U chipset, which is worth keeping in mind. However, we found that barring the slightly underwhelming battery life, the Asus VivoBook K15 OLED laptop offers a good balance between performance and design. As an entertainment device, this is one of the best displays that has come our way this year, and the overall performance in day to day tasks is more than adequate — if that is what you are looking for.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
R5 5500U: A hexa-core APU designed for use in ultra-thin, upper mid-range laptops. The Ryzen features six Zen 2 CPU cores running at 2.1 GHz to 4.0 GHz alongside the Vega 7 graphics adapter (448 unified shaders running at up to 1,800 MHz). One could be forgiven for thinking Ryzen 5 5500U is a renamed Ryzen 5 4500U - which is not the case. Ryzen 5 5500U is most similar to Ryzen 5 4600U, the most noteworthy difference between the two being the faster iGPU model of the former.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
