Asus Vivobook 15 (K513) Review
The Vivobook series from Asus has always been one of the best budget-oriented ultrabooks. Today I have the latest Vivobook 15 k513, with intel’s 11-gen processor and some refreshing upgrades. As for the pricing, the i5 variant we have for review retails at 65 000 rupees in India, nearly 5000 here in Nepal, and 650 dollars in the US.
How Does The Vivobook 15 Stand Out?
The first thing I like about the Vivobook series is that it comes in a couple of funky colour options, and as you can see, this hearty gold colour variant looks stunning despite its budget. Asus is pushing the viewer book 15 to a lifestyle category. As a result, you’re getting a reasonably premium-looking design suitable for students or business professionals.
The back of the device features a minimalistic Asus Vivobook branding in a reflective finish, while the entire surface remains treated with a matte-like airbrush. I’m pretty fond of the big circular rubber feet, which also deliver a firm grip when placing the laptop on a flat surface. However, what is not quite sturdy is the hinge here. As you can see, it’s subject to a significant bubble which raises doubt about its durability in the long run. On the other hand, even though 16 to 10 aspect ratio displays are getting more common these days, that trend has not gotten to the budget laptop category; thus, the Vivobook 15 remains hammered with pretty significant bezels, especially on the top and the bottom.
Features Of Vivobook 15
at just 1.7 kgs, I am reasonably happy with its weight, although surprised to see the company’s signature cargo lift hinge missing on this device. Regarding ports, there are two USB 2.0-type connections on the left while an additional port is on the right. But this one is the USB 3.2 gen one protocol. Besides this, you can find a full-size HDMI 1.4, a 3.5 mm headphone out. A USB 3.2 gen 1 type c, a micro sd card reader, and a barrel pin power connector. Moving on to the display, you get a standard 15.6 inches full HD IPS LCD screen.
It has 273 units of brightness and as a result. Setting the screen’s brightness to 30 to 40 per cent was enough to deliver east visibility. Likewise, it covers 49 NTSC, 68 srgb, and 51 of the DCI p3 colour gamut, so for the most part. I did not have much to complain about the middle-of-the-line panel configuration I have with me. The colours look vibrant, and its full HD resolution has yielded no trouble regarding content sharpness. Additionally, viewing angles on this thing is pretty good with a notable dip.
Is the Asus VivoBook a reliable laptop? In a nutshell, the Asus VivoBook 15 is one of the most impressive laptops we’ve seen recently. Aside from intense gaming, this compelling laptop is equally remarkable as the 16-inch MacBook Pro but is smaller, lighter, and far less expensive. Asus Vivobook 15
