Asus has several laptos in their VivoBook lineup of laptops but what you want to do is look at the VivoBook Pro if you’re looking to get a step up on the competition.
Today, I’m specifically looking at the Asus VivoBook Pro N552VX-FY304T for this review. This model comes with a 15.6″ full HD screen. I will quickly review this Asus model looking at the pros and cons to help you make a decision about the purchase.
Intel Core i5-6300HQ
15.6″ FHD 1920 x 1080 Screen
Nvidia GTX950 2 GB GDDR3 Video Graphics
12 GB RAM
1 TB + 128 GB SSD
Pre-installed with Windows 10
This laptop is not marketed as a gaming or high processing power beast but, with the i5 processor and a whopping 12GB of RAM, that’s what it is. That’s right, you get a generous amount of RAM and you’ll surely notice the difference and lack of lag if you’re moving up from a computer with 4 GB or even 8 GB of RAM. This laptop is also more than capable of gaming thanks to the Nvidia video graphics.
It includes USB 3.0 that’s a Type-C , the latest incarnation of the format, as well as a tuned audio chipset as well as a SSD hard drive which will make you appreciate the fast response technology.
Some other things that you may not notice are that the laptop is equipped with ASUS’ “Eye Care” technology that helps reduce strain on your eyes. It also features a chiclet keyboard, which provides a great tactical feedback when you’re typing those long documents.
At 4 hours the battery life is not the best. However, if mobility isn’t a concern and you can always be plugged in, this should not be an issue.
You may have noticed the SSD hard drive is only 128 GB. But that’s not a big deal because the Asus VivoBook Pro N552VX-FY304T comes with two hard drives and so if you combine this with the 1 TB standard SATA hard drive and you’ve got plenty of space.
For all the power and features it packs, the Asus VivoBook Pro N552VX-FY304T is definitely a great buy. It should probably be priced higher than it is but that’s why I decided to do a review, so you can jump on some great tech at a fair price.
