A lot of people may know Asus for its Zenfone range of smartphones, but its laptop line up is equally popular mostly in the Asian region. The Taiwan-based firm has multiple laptop series to its name but today we will be specifically talking about the – VivoBook family. Asus recently, without much bells and whistles, silently slipped out the VivoBook X510U, which comes as a breath of fresh air. We’ll tell you why.
ASUS VivoBook is the perfect combination of beauty and performance. Available in multiple colors and finishes, VivoBook 15 is a Windows 10 laptop powered by the latest Generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor with 4GB RAM. It’s the ideal laptop for daily computing and entertainment.

Design and display
ASUS VivoBook 15 is thinner and lighter than ever: It weighs just 1.7 kg* and has an amazingly thin 19.4mm profile. It’s an everyday laptop with the weight and compactness of an ultrabook.
As we mentioned above, our review unit was running Intel 7th generation Core i3 processor inside, which is good enough to handle your daily tasks with ease but is certainly not for heavy users.
For some people, an ideal laptop is the one that strikes a balance between the performance and the looks. In India, striking the performance and design balance while making the product pocket-friendly is a near perfect combination. With Asus VivoBook 15 (X510UA), the company has tried the same and has even been successful in most areas. The laptop has a good, near bezel-less screen, stereo speakers with loud audio output, a decent processor that can handle most of your daily tasks and a battery with some enhancements to stretch the life of the laptop. The design is appreciable as well. All this under Rs 35,000 is a good deal.
