Reviews for the Asus VivoBook 15 X512FL-EJ205T

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.

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.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. 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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

1.75 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
