The gaps between the individual panels are very good and underline the good choice of materials. This amount includes applicable customs duties, taxes, brokerage and other fees. In an idle state and with a light utilization the notebook is hardly audible, while the cooling fan hums away with about 30 dB A. During the stress test we fully utilize the processor and the graphics card for over an hour. This adds a few minutes to the VivoBook's battery runtime.Next
Even though not much should be expected from a notebook of this size, the speakers could still have the potential to trump those in many Ultrabooks. Not much has changed in the options for connecting peripherals since the VivoBook. As a result of this it is very wobbly though, and removing the cable is also not always as easy as could be expected. It makes even more intricate applications possible. Underneath this is the hard drive which can now easily be changed. As a result the use of the notebook is unlikely to be very inspiring outdoors.Next
The display's hinge also benefits from this. The display is covered by a glass panel which reacts to finger control right up to the edges. Only the chassis' underside is plastic because it is also the maintenance cover. This is better but not yet perfect. Overall the average brightness is too low for use in bright rooms or outdoors. Or does the offer not satisfy the remaining criteria making it unusable, because the case quality, the display, or the cooling has suffered as a result of cost savings? Unless otherwise stated, all performance claims are based on theoretical performance. Although this is rational for the keyboard, it is too bad for the screen.
Charging the VivoBook takes 2 hours and 40 minutes. The laptop has a touchscreen which works fine. The key component for computing power is Intel's dual-core processor. In this case Asus has gone a step further with other notebooks, and has provided a small external bass box as an accessory. The connectivity features are not overly extensive, but nevertheless fit for purpose. If you could not find the exact driver for your hardware device or you aren't sure which driver is right one, we have a program that will detect your hardware specifications and identify the correct driver for your needs.Next
Comparing the two devices a little closer however, reveals the fundamental difference in the arrangement of the components. The use of metal reinforces the casing in important places. Unfortunately there is only a mediocre display lurking behind the touch sensitive glass panel. In order to store data Asus have included a conventional hard drive from Seagate. System Performance The system performance leaves us with mixed feelings. Unfortunately, the memory bus of 128 bits has now been reduced to 64 bits. All in all the system is very expeditious and leaves a good impression.Next
Again, the bluish cast that the screen renders is particularly striking. The whole touchpad can be used for clicking, although it could be worth noting that the front of the pad is more responsive than the back. As soon as it has been received back, we will process the replacement. Here the same is true as with the noise: The temperatures reach higher rates due to the dedicated graphics unit. We also liked the temperatures and the correspondingly cool casing.
Due to the less potent components the system still managed to stay on its feet for one and a half hours in this scenario. The 10-finger multi-touch function does not give reason for complaint either. Meanwhile looking at the display from below causes the colors to invert or become dark gray, and text is no longer easily legible. This leads to a lower system performance compared with the competition. Even current games can be rendered in low resolutions. Due to the reflective surface of the touchscreen, there are often distracting reflections which can lead to the contents of the display not being discernible, depending on the intensity of the reflections and the viewing angle. Does this mean that the VivoBook series is suitable for people who are satisfied with a thick case and streamlined accessories? Product specifications may differ from country to country.Next
Intel's again shows its efficiency and helps the laptop to an idle runtime of 7:21 hours. The more you already know, the easier your property sales effort will probably be. This is primarily due to the large 15. The bottom surface even goes a step further and reaches 53 °C 127. Our provide free support to anyone who needs it - at any stage of the order process.Next
The interface distribution quality has deteriorated a bit. The processor-integrated graphics unit remains active until a computing-heavy 3D application is started. Even with a high processing load the notebook doesn't exceed 38. Warranty The warranty in Germany and Austria is valid for 24 months, while in the remainder of the world buyers will have to make due with 12 months. Not considering the multi-touch support the integrated display aligns itself with the usual candidates. One thing that stands out hereby is the precise control with which most targets are immediately struck.Next
