Pros: - With the 500 gb SSD it boots up in 2 seconds and the fingerprint reader avoids the need for a password.
- No problem working with large spreadsheets
- The screen is large and crystal clear.
- Has 3 USB ports for a headset and cordless mouse.
- Nice full size keyboard with good tactile feel
- not the thinnest laptop, but weight is acceptable for a 15.6" monitor
Cons: - The numpad is very narrow and the zero is in an odd spot, so it takes some getting used to
- Sound quality is OK, but not great
- Home, End, Pg Up, Pg Down keys are shared with the Left, Right, Up, Down Arrows and require the fn key to be held down
Overall Review: Yes, I am happy with my purchase. I use my laptop for both business and pleasure (I'm not a gamer, but do stream movies). So far it has exceeded my expectations. This is my first ASUS product, so we'll see how reliable it is. I'm expecting at least 5 years of trouble free operation.
I read the reviews before purchasing and one buyer complained about the gray lettering on the silver keys being difficult to read. When I cranked mine up, I saw the same thing but noticed that the F7 keyboard lighting was on. I turned it off and the keys are now a nice black on silver. Sometimes the reviews give you bad info.
Overall Review: im a graphic designer i switched from a macbook to this. I can have photoshop illustrator and indesign all open at once WITH NO ISSUES. has not crashed once. isnt loud, doesn't overheat. even with a duel monitor setup i havent had any issues. its fast and i can play games on it as well. (which i could not with a mac AT ALL) steal of a deal, buy it.
Cons: Come with no ethernet connector (my bad for not checking) so make sure if you really don't need the LAN port, then this laptop is for you.
Overall Review: Would recommend it.
Pros: Sleek look
Fast for the most part
Cons: Sometimes takes awhile to open files
THE WEBCAM IS HORRIBLE
Overall Review: This computer works well, except the webcam is such poor quality. For the price, I expected it to be functional. The image is very fuzzy/pixelated and the camera always struggles to figure out the lighting. In Zoom meetings, my face sometimes flashes from a cool tone to a warm tone, like the camera can't make up its mind. Overall, the computer functions well, just the webcam is barely usable.
Pros: The ASUS VivoBook 15 M515 is a powerhouse of a laptop. I'm truly impressed with the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U in it. This laptop is replacing my work computer, so it being truly thin and light is important. Battery life seems decent but I haven't used it too much to find out. Another bonus, looks like this laptop will support Windows 11.
Cons: Thin and light it is, but not as much as the laptop it is replacing (HP Spectre). Yes, this is an apples to orange comparison as I really should have a Zenbook 13 as a true comparison but they are more expensive. The only other complaint I have is with the web camera being of clearly lower quality to the above mentioned computer. Good thing I don't use this feature much, but if you do, you will be disappointed and will probably want to obtain a better quality external camera.
Overall Review: A recently purchased gaming laptop: ASUS TUF with a 3750U, and I wish it had THIS processor in it (and the one it does have is no slouch to begin with). This laptop is not meant for gaming but the built-in Radeon RX Vega graphics are way better and will support quite a few games (graphics dialed down of course). I recommended this laptop to a few, and after purchasing and using myself, I stand by that recommendation and am very pleased with my purchase... but I will keep an eye out for a ZenBook 13 sale. :)
Overall Review: I bought this for the new school year for course work but also a little bit of gaming. It works well for what I need it for. I havent had it lag once. Side note - The camera is not so good. Its blurry and choppy. So, if you need a good camera for online classes, this isnt it chief.
Pros: Best Bang for buck and it can game.. The last time I bought a laptop was 5/6 years ago and it was ok after, I upgraded the Ram and put an SSD in it.. But this came ready.. 16Gigs Dual channel at 3200Mhz speed.. This thing is fast and I can't believe it's only $600.. It's every bit as fast as my Desktop, Maybe faster in light tasks.. Slower in multi.. Got a 2700X anyway have used it for a few days and I'm so happy I found this. I almost bought the ACER 4500U 8Gig with a second stick of ram at 2666 and I procrastinated, and got lucky with this with 16gigs at 3200 out of the box which matters with this chip.. It is fast. Its the fastest laptop I have ever owned without a dedicated GPU Definitely. Screen could be brighter but you can't CON that because of the Raw Power. Best hardware for the money hands down the 16gigs dual channel 6/12 threads, 7 Cu's at 1800Mhz instead of 6 at 1500Mhz , Matter's..
Cons: None at this price really, It's really a hopped up 4600U and Not Zen 3.. Kinda False advertisement.. Could have done better with cooling Keep in Mind it is a thin N Light it doesn't run at 4.0ghz really ever, however it will hold above 3.0ghz while gaming mostly around 3.5ghz depending on the game. Finally the refined Zen2 chip is fast even at 2.5ghz. That being said this is the fastest laptop I have ever owned. It's not a gaming laptop but you can game on it on lowered setting and resolutions.. You can pretty much play anything at 1600/900 or worst case 720P. but who cares for light on the go gaming. It's Not WIFI 6 But Not a Big deal to me. A Gigabit Down is good enough for me in a laptop. And the Bluetooth is Behind to. Another thing I don't really use.
Overall Review: I definitely recommend the laptop, keep in mind it's Zen 2 not Zen 3 But it's still fast as hell and you can play any game with adjusted settings.. I play a lot of older titles still, and this laptop plays them all at 1080. Some of the newer AAA titles need to be dropped down to 720P or 1600/900 in order to stay above 60FPS but perfect for on the go use.. Finally I have to say after Now using it on and off for like 2 months. The Ram timings could be a lot tighter. Not Gonna knock it for that it is Laptop memory after all, Also no matter what I did in advanced power settings, I can't get this Laptop to go full out like it does when i's plugged in. It's just so much Faster Plugged in. But Still I just saw another VIVOBook with a 4500U only 8 Gigs of Ram and 128 Boot with a hard drive for $669, and I bought this on Day one when it was selling for 599.99 and now it's going for 629.99 I guess, But anyway this is still the best $600 Doller Hardware.. It's Got 7 Vega seven CU's at 1800Mhz Vs a 4600U with 6 Vega six CU's at 1500Mhz which that extra CU and all Running at 1800Mhz Makes a Big difference, and an even Bigger difference Vs the 4500U 6/6 Threads. And Finally you have to run these chips in dual channel in order to get the full power out of them. If not in most use cases you are handicapping the chip by 30% in performance, even worse in light gaming. Oh and I have been able to play a lot of older titles in 1080P. And don't think you are going to play brand new AAA games in 1080P not happening..
Pros: Great laptop for basic functions. Starts up quickly and smoothly. Key pad is comfortable to use and the power button is in a good spot. The unit is light weight and the screen has a "mat" finish so it's not shinny and glossy. It seems to handle all the basic functions well and could probably handle some basic gaming as well although I have not tried.
Cons: Frankly at this point I don't have any negative feelings.
Overall Review: Great laptop with plenty of power for the common needs of life. Likely would be good for light gamers as well.
