Asus Vivobook 15 K513EQ OLED laptop review: The Lenovo IdeaPad alternative

1080p OLED is the new sweet spot. The VivoBook 15 K513 offers an amazing bang for the buck with its OLED display, 11th gen Intel CPU, and discrete Nvidia graphics all for under $950 USD. Though solid on paper, a few cut corners prevent it from reaching the same levels of a ZenBook.

Take one step down from the high-end Asus ZenBook series and you'll find yourself knee-deep in the budget-oriented Asus VivoBook series. The family has been rapidly expanding into a confusingly large lineup of models consisting of both Intel and AMD CPUs with integrated or discrete graphics and even OLED options. It's definitely been difficult to keep up and the latest VivoBook 15 K513 doesn't exactly make things easier.

Naming convention aside, our VivoBook 15 K513 test unit is certainly unlike most other budget or mid-range multimedia laptops out there with its uncommon Intel 11th gen Core i7-1165G7 and GeForce MX350 pairing. Additionally, it's one of the first 15.6-inch laptops to come with a non-touch 1080p OLED display compared to all the 4K OLED panels out there. We'll be taking a closer look at the performance, display, and physical features of the VivoBook 15 K513 to find out what exactly makes it so different from all the other VivoBook 15 models in the market. 

Competitors in this space include other mid-range multimedia laptops like the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15, Dell Inspiron 15, HP Pavilion 15, or the MSI Summit B15/E15 series. Our specific test unit can be found online for about $900 to $1000 USD.

Case — Hope You Like Plastic

There are moderate differences both inside and out between all the various 15.6-inch VivoBook 15 models. In our case, the VivoBook 15 K513 is most similar to the VivoBook 15 F512 in terms of port positioning and layout of the motherboard. The plastic base in particular is nowhere near as firm or luxurious as a typical ZenBook 15, HP Spectre, or Dell XPS 15 which is to be expected. Chassis rigidity is instead more in line with the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15 or Dell Inspiron 3501 while being a bit weaker than the latest HP Pavilion 15. Its keyboard center, for example, flexes more readily than we would like.

The system is lighter than many of its competitors by about 100 g to 200 g despite the discrete GPU and OLED panel. Overall dimensions are most similar to the latest HP Pavilion 15 while being thinner and thicker than the VivoBook 15 Pro and VivoBook S15, respectively.

Connectivity — No Thunderbolt or USB-C Charging

Port options are decent but with disappointing caveats. Firstly, the USB-C port does not support DisplayPort or Power Delivery meaning you cannot connect external monitors or recharge the system through this port unlike on most other laptops. Secondly, the HDMI port is only version 1.4 meaning it lacks support for 4K external monitors at 60 FPS. The model even utilizes more slower USB-A 2.0 ports than USB-A 3.0.

SD Card Reader

The spring-loaded MicroSD card reader remains slow to reflect the budget Vivobook range. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 30 seconds compared to only 14 seconds on the ZenBook 15.

Communication

Our test unit comes with Wi-Fi 6 while lesser SKUs come with Wi-Fi 5. We're able to reach excellent real-world average receive rates of over 1.2 Gbps on our Netgear RAX200 test router while transmit rates are more disappointing at just ~600 Mbps.

Maintenance — Easy to Open Up

The bottom panel can be easily removed with a Philips screwdriver and sharp edge to unveil the single SODIMM slot, WLAN module, and M.2 2280 PCIe3 x4 slot. A base 8 GB of single-channel RAM comes soldered which can be paired with an 8 GB removable module for up to 16 GB total.

Input Devices — Spongy Clickpad

Keyboard

If you've typed on a VivoBook laptop before, then you'll know exactly what to expect from the VivoBook 15 K513 as there is very little variation between the models in terms of keyboard feedback. Both travel and tactility remain shallow and soft, respectively, compared to the firmer keys of the business-centric Lenovo ThinkPad or HP EliteBook. The keys of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15 feel similar to what we have here on the Asus, but key clatter is moderately louder on the Asus.

Touchpad

The clickpad (~10.5 x 7.3 cm) is poor and below average even by budget standards. While regular cursor movement is smooth and without any sudden jumps, its integrated mouse keys are far too spongy and shallow. Clicking feels unsatisfying as a result especially if clicking and dragging or performing other multi-touch actions.

Display — Mostly Better Than IPS

Asus utilizes the same 1080p Samsung ATNA56YX03-0 OLED panel for both its VivoBook 15 K513 and VivoBook 15 Pro series. The panel is notable for offering full DCI-P3 coverage which most IPS panels cannot reach especially in this <$1000 USD price range. The extra-fast response times, relatively bright backlight, and extreme contrast ratio make our VivoBook better than expected for graphics editing.

Keep in mind that pulse-width modulation is present at all brightness levels unlike on most other laptops. We're able to record a frequency of 59 Hz when brightness is set to 50 percent or higher and 434 Hz when brightness is set to 49 percent or lower.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
2.9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.1 ms rise
↘ 1.8 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
2.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.1 ms rise
↘ 1.1 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 59.52 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 59.52 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 59.52 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 20903 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is average if under shade and slightly better than IPS when at the same brightness level due to the much deeper black levels of OLED. The screen doesn't wash out as easily as a result, but glare is nonetheless still difficult to avoid.

Performance — 11th Gen Tiger Lake-U

Current SKUs come equipped with the U-series Core i3-1115G4 CPU up to the Core i7-1165G7 plus optional GeForce MX330 or MX350 graphics on Optimus 1.0. The aforementioned Core i3 SKU comes only with integrated UHD Graphics to be significantly slower than Iris Xe or the discrete Nvidia GPU. Users will have to look at the higher-end VivoBook 15 Pro series if they want faster Core H-series CPUs and GeForce RTX graphics.

 

Testing Conditions

Our unit was set to Performance mode via the MyAsus software for the best possible benchmark scores. We recommend owners become familiar with this software as key features related to OLED, microphone, battery health, Asus updates, and more are all accessible here.

Processor

CPU performance is excellent with multi-thread results that are about 10 percent faster than the average laptop in our database with the same Core i7-1165G7 processor. Opting for the lesser Core i5-1135G7 option will entail a performance drop of only about 10 to 15 percent.

Storage Devices —Only Room For One Drive

Our unit comes configured with a 512 GB Intel 660p SSDPEKNW512G8 PCIe3 NVMe SSD for theoretical maximum read and write rates of only 1500 MB/s and 1000 MB/s, respectively, which is roughly 2x slower than the more expensive Samsung PM981a series. Performance will likely be sufficient for the target audience especially given the ULV U-series CPU and GeForce MX graphics that the drive is paired with. A heat spreader isn't as necessary for preserving performance when under stress since the Intel 660p is only a budget to mid-range NVMe solution.

GPU Performance — Iris Xe vs. GeForce MX350

Graphics performance is where we expect it to be relative to other laptops equipped with the same GeForce MX350 GPU. Intel's competing integrated Iris Xe platform has been steadily improving over time in terms of drivers and gaming support to the point where it is now neck-to-neck with the Nvidia GPU in most cases. GTA V and DOTA 2 Reborn are two notable exceptions where our GeForce-powered Vivobook would still hold notable performance advantages over Iris Xe.

Upgrading from the MX330 to the MX350 will boost performance by about 15 to 20 percent.
