Most Favorable Review

Great fast, light weight, powerful laptop

ASUS VivoBook 15.6" FHD Laptop, Quad-Core Ryzen 5 2500U Processor (up to 3.6 GHz) with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics, 8 GB DDR4, 256 GB M.2 SSD, 802.11ac Wi-Fi - F505ZA-DH51
ASUS VivoBook 15.6" FHD Laptop, Quad-Core Ryzen 5 2500U Processor (up to 3.6 GHz) with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics, 8 GB DDR4, 256 GB M.2 SSD, 802.11ac Wi-Fi - F505ZA-DH51

Pros: Bought this to use as an IT training/school laptop. Large storage capacities are mostly unnecessary these days with the existence of the cloud, so the SSD makes this machine lightning fast and light as a feather. I installed Ubuntu and am able to reboot and switch between Linux or WIndows in under a minute. Both Windows 10 and Ubuntu run like a dream on here. This is not advertised as a gaming machine but I was surprised by how powerful it actually is. You're not going to be running the latest AAA titles in 4k but this laptop can handle some mid-range gaming. SSD, DDR4 RAM, 802.11ac wifi adapter, and AMD Ryzen 5 Quad-core CPU makes this laptop future proof for years to come IMO

Cons: - Battery life is lacking, though that's a fair trade off for the light weight. - Would be nice to have a touchscreen but that's not what I bought it for

Overall Review: Would highly recommend. Product is as advertised and worth the price
