Although the VivoBook Pro N580VD excels for performance, the display is substandard and other faults keep it from being an easy recommendation.

The ASUS VivoBook Pro 15 N580VD is a tremendous leap forward compared to what seems to be its predecessor – the ASUS N552VX, except in terms of image quality. The presented panel here drags behind its predecessor in terms of brightness, color accuracy and sRGB coverage although, the latter won’t be noticed, especially with a naked eye, since the difference is merely a few percents. Still, we can’t get past the fact that the display uses PWM for regulating screen brightness so using our Health-Guard profile might be the smart thing to do if you experience fatigue or other kinds of effects from the high-frequency PWM.

The VivoBook Pro's speedy CPU, powerful GPU and colorful screen deliver a solid experience to users for a reasonable price. Unfortunately, it's up to a pound heavier than competing machines, has a lower-res screen and can't make it 5 hours on a single charge.

Asus is jazzing up its VivoBook range with a new look inspired by its ZenBook line, and the result is a midrange laptop that looks premium.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
