Comment

Model: The Asus VivoBook Max X541NA-GQ028T is your typical mid range laptop with a decent price tag. Asus presented this VivoBook as a genuine equipment monster from the almost forgotten VGA port to HDMI and card reader. In terms of portability, the ASUS VivoBook Max X541NA-GQ028T has a height of 2,76 cm and a payload of 2 kg. Thickness and weight are a compromise in favor of having many ports. The device is considered too chunky for carrying around day-long. The chassis of this model is made of plastic, lacquered in black and champagne. The large 106 mm x 74 mm touchpad features palm rejection technology, which differentiates between the actual fingertip and palm contact to prevent unintentional cursor movement. At a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, the 15.6 display achieves a chessboard contrast of 141: 1 and a maximum brightness of 231 cd/m². The display is matt and achieves a brightness distribution of 94.3 percent, which is good for outdoor usage. The Tru2Life Video technology makes videos look amazing. It intelligently optimizes each pixel in the video frame to increase sharpness and contrast by 150 %. Besides that, most LED panels emit blue light, which is the main cause of macular degeneration and retinal problems. ASUS Eye Care mode effectively reduces blue light levels by up to 33% to make reading comfortable and to protect from potential eye fatigue and other ailments. Overall, the display is good enough for working on but the low resolution leaves users wanting more during media playbacks.

The Asus VivoBook Max X541NA-GQ028T has an Intel Celeron N3350 processor (1.1 GHz), which is accompanied by 4 GB of RAM. The ASUS VivoBook Max X541NA-GQ028T offers a 500 GB HDD. The performance of this configuration is suitable for undemanding users and only for office applications and web browsing. ASUS VivoBook Max Series laptops are designed to deliver an immersive multimedia experience. ASUS-exclusive technologies like SonicMaster audio, incorporating ICEpower technology, ASUS Splendid, and ASUS Tru2Life Video make movies and music come alive. The laptop draws its energy from a 35 Wh strong battery. In terms of battery runtimes, it has approximately 5 hours for office applications and 4 hours for video playback. Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit) is available on startup on the ASUS VivoBook Max X541NA-GQ028T. As for input/output interfaces, there are two USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, a VGA port and an SDXC card reader. The reversible USB Type-C port ensures a proper connection every time, right-side up, or upside down. It also provides data transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps, which is almost 10 times that of USB 2.0. Wireless communication is possible via 802.11n WLAN and Bluetooth. This laptop is really good for simple work purposes but it ends there.
