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.

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.
