How about upgradability? Again – mixed results. It is great that you can put two RAM sticks and add up to 32GB of memory. Moreover, you have one M.2 NVMe PCIe x2 slot and a SATA drive slot. Now, it all seems fun and games, until you pop the device open. The only thing you can change right out the bat is the SATA drive. Everything else requires the removal of the motherboard from the chassis. You can do that yourself with only a single Phillips screwdriver and you can check our guide HERE. Nevertheless, it takes plenty of steps more, compared to the Ideapad L340 Gaming (15) or the VivoBook K571.

This VivoBook is a hard sell. On one hand it's rather unique, as it combines a low-power CPU with mid-tier Nvidia dedicated graphics, and it performs well in most situations and doesn't throttle in games. On the other it's just average in terms of build, looks, screen quality and even typing experience, although I find this a good match for my style. Pricing is going to make it or break it though, as Asus also offers an Intel Core U based model with the exact same traits, quirks and kind of GPU, and this one needs to be more affordable in order to compete and overcome the flaws associated with the Ryzen platform. Read on for the whole story.
