Not quite grown up yet. The new VivoBook from Asus sounds promising: A new quad-core processor and a dedicated graphics unit are wrapped in a premium-looking case. The sales price also seems very fair. While it looks similar to the high-quality ZenBook visually, taking a closer look, this is only the surface.

Cheap price, cheap chassis. There is nothing about this VivoBook that makes it stand out from the crowded 15-inch multimedia segment. When considering the target market and inexpensive price, however, the dull impression shouldn't be a problem. We're hoping that future revisions will address the poor keyboard while adding in USB Type-C charging.

Asus Gaming X570UD Review: Light But Not a Lightweight
Source: Unbox English
At Php 59, 995 for the configuration that we got this in, the Asus Gaming X570UD is quite compelling for what it has to offer and with the welcome surprises it has as well. It’s a decent notebook for productivity and a bit of gaming but may require a little extra care if you are planning to bring this laptop with you all the time but there’s more to love about this notebook.

Asus VivoBook 15 review: A laptop that doesn't cost much, yet looks premium
Source: Business Standard English
The relatively thin screen bezels, weight of the notebook and addition of a USB Type-C port at this price point are the highlights of the VivoBook 15. The cooling system also handles stress better than a lot of competitors. While the build quality is a bit questionable, overall it makes for a great option if someone is in the lookout for an entry-level laptop that looks premium and handles everyday chores with ease.

Asus VivoBook 15 F505ZA-BQ117T

Sharing many similar traits with its VivoBook siblings regardless of their serial numeric numbers, the Asus VivoBook 15 comes in a bigger size and bigger power for those who require an extra oomph on long-term projects or to bask in mere leisure activities alone. The Asus VivoBook 15 not only comes with a selection of an attractive array of colors, it also houses staggering core specifications that are guaranteed to knock things straight out of the park. In order to flesh out everything on what the Asus VivoBook 15 is capable of, we must look no further than the device itself with a keen and introspective eye. First and foremost, the Asus VivoBook 15 has a 15.6-inch NanoEdge display. The 7.7 millimeters of bezel made possible a screen-to-body ratio of 81 %. The whole screen is terrific for viewing stunning landscapes and visual aesthetics as if it was a part of the outdoor environment itself. The Asus VivoBook 15 also introduces the imagery-enhancing Asus Splendid, which is a visual optimization technology with different modes. Normal mode is the default visual display for mundane tasks. Eye Care mode reduces blue-light levels for the comfort of the eyes. The fully customizable Manual mode passes on the liberty of tweaking visual effects to the user’s own liking. The Asus VivoBook 15 features their company brand’s very own SuperBattery technology, which provides up to three times longer battery life than normal. With the Asus SuperBattery system, any high-quality battery is complemented by the Battery Health Charging technology. The innovative Battery Health Charging reduces the battery expansion rate in order to preserve its condition and promote a longer overall life span. Moreover, the SuperBattery technology can charge the Asus VivoBook 15 up to 60 % in just under 50 minutes. The Asus VivoBook 15 by technical default is a Windows 10 laptop powered by the latest generation AMD Ryzen processor with up to 16 GB DDR4 RAM alongside the AMD Radeon Vega graphics processor. These set of processors hailing from Ryzen are commonly associated and found in low-end performance gaming laptops. The Ryzen 3 in particular is capable of clocking at 3.5 GHz and it is one of the available processors in the industry to feature built-in graphics. The integration of Ryzen processor units in the Asus VivoBook 15 further entails to the fact that it is more than capable of sustaining games that are in demand while still able to cater on more important and prioritized tasks concerning work.

70% Asus VivoBook 15 (X505Z) Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
We have to hand it to Asus for pricing the VivoBook 15 (X505Z) this aggressively. At Rs. 35,990, it's tough to find anything that matches the model we have in terms of specifications. The closest one that we could find, with Windows included, is the Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51) but it has 4GB of RAM and a lower resolution display for a bit more money. The VivoBook 15 (X505Z) launched in December with a 1-month exclusive tie-up with Paytm Mall, and even today, that's the only place that seems to have all the variants listed.

Source: Think Digit English
The Asus Vivobook X505 offers decent performance for the price. It has a vibrant display which is good for watching movies, but unfit for photo editing. The performance is acceptably good for using Office applications but programs like Photoshop or games like Doom are not meant to be run on this laptop. This machine is greatly suited for anyone who needs a portable machine for work and doesn’t want to spend much on it, but there are better machines if you’re a power users, albeit for a higher price.

70% Asus VivoBook X512 review: A laptop that gets the job done
Source: Gadget Show English
At the given price of Rs 65,990, the Asus VivoBook X512 offers some really good features such as Core i7 processor, SSD, and dedicated graphics card. However, there are a few things such as overall build quality, display, audio quality, etc. where Asus could have done a slightly better job. Overall, Asus has made it clear that this is just a VivoBook laptop which is meant to be a value-for-money device and offers one of the best price to performance ratio.

70% Asus VivoBook 15 X512 review: Impressive performance for reasonable price
Source: India Today English
The VivoBook 15 X512 is Asus' idea of offering a laptop with flagship class performance for a relatively low price. However, the real-world implementation isn't as practical as it looks on paper. The display is below average, the speakers are not up to the mark, the keyboard is not comfortable and the overall plastic build doesn't justify its premium pricing. The only reason it really makes sense to pick this up over a bulky gaming laptop is for the unbeatable performance from its 8th Gen Core i7 processor. And for Rs 65,990, it is still acceptable but you have to be really needy for the Core i7 performance only.

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.

ASUS X509 review – an entry-level all-rounder
Source: Laptop Media English
First, let’s note that at this price point, all expectation should be severely lowered. After all, this device is not battling with any MacBooks or Dell XPS 15s. With that said, we should start with the design of this machine. The X509 is a pretty sleek laptop that despite its plastic design, manages to give a somewhat good feel when handling.

The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

8565U: 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 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.Intel Core i3:
