73.1% Asus Vivobook 15 F512DA Laptop Review: AMD Ryzen 3 for $400 | Notebookcheck
Can you get a good laptop for just a few hundred dollars? The entry-level Asus VivoBook 15 with the AMD Ryzen 3 3200U retails for about $100 less than the Intel Core i3 version without being all that much slower.
Asus Vivobook 15 F512DA Review: Best Budget Laptop For Students and Writers
Source: iTech Post English
If you're an on-budget student or writer looking for an affordable laptop that does the job and supports your mobility, this product should be your consideration. Upgradable SSD, upgradeable RAM, backlit keyboard, and ultra-slim bezel are enough to give you the best writing experience. However, some issues are still undeniable. Battery life is not so great or terrible either. It's average to mediocre, so you may need to have your power charger ready.

ASUS VivoBook 15 F515 review – corners were cut
Source: Laptop Media English
In addition to that, we weren’t extremely satisfied with the input devices, as the keyboard was a bit mushy, while the touchpad was inaccurate and the tracking had some latency. Also, the I/O features rather slow USB Type-A ports and lacks an Ethernet connector. A slight consolation is the MicroSD card reader plus the optional fingerprint reader.

60% Asus VivoBook 15 review — a budget laptop with low-budget battery life
Source: Tom's Guide English
Theoretically, if I were in a rush and needed a so-called throwaway laptop to perform a few quick deeds, the Asus VivoBook 15 would be likely to carry me through. It has enough power to run an older game at low-quality settings to help fulfill the nostalgia quotient. It has enough battery life to file words at a Denny's in time for the next deadline. But as this Asus VivoBook 15 review showed, performance doesn't particularly impress, which doesn't make it a laptop worth an upgrade.

The Asus VivoBook 15 won’t turn any heads with its performance or design, but all things considered, it’s a decent offering for the cost. If it weren’t for the poor screen, it might well be the standout we tested in this price range, since it is a touch faster than its peers. The storage capacity is also pretty restrictive, but that’s not unique to this machine at this price. On the positive end, its keyboard is pretty good, the battery lasts long enough to be useful, and it has an above-average port selection. If you need the essentials and won’t be put off by a couple of concessions, this VivoBook 15 model can do the job as an affordable daily driver for simple home and office tasks.
