Reviews for the Asus VivoBook 15 R521JA-EJ113T

60% Asus VivoBook 15 (2020) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus VivoBook 15 is an excellent looking laptop for $399, but the performance and overall feature set just doesn’t deliver on the promise of its design. The display looks great in terms of a minimal bezel experience, but that only lasts until you power it on because the screen is dim and dull.
