Just ordered one of these for my kids birthday. Seems like a good deal and best I can find elsewhere was £500 and better than previous deal posted here. This will be perfect for the games they play (Roblox, Minecraft etc).

1st share, so hope it helps someone else

The newer M509 is better with an IPS screen, cost £30 more thought.

Looks pretty much the same tbh, both have IPS panel. Both nice laptops though
Getting totally confused with these Vivobooks, some have IPS, some don't. The one posted yesterday was without IPS and at a considerably higher cost. True, with better specs, but how can you have a £650 without IPS and a £450 with IPS...
Good specs and voted hot!

The Honor is better built, looks more premium.

Thanks. Have it in the basket but also have a Huawei D14 for £530 in the Amazon basket. I am so indecisive! Can’t see a good magicbook offer today.

Just go with which one you think looks best and can most afford as spec wise they are all similar to my eyes

I can't see IPS stated anywhere on either the buy site or the Asus site. Please can you confirm how you know this. Thanks.
I paid £600 for a 15.6" laptop with IPS panel and 256gb memory last week, so if this is IPS it's a good deal in my view.

on here it says "15.6" (16:9) LED-backlit FHD (1920x1080) 60Hz Anti-Glare IPS-level Panel with 45% NTSC"

I assumed that was IPS, but if not apologies, still think its a good deal even if not IPS panel.

Says "4 GB DDR4 2400MHz SDRAM Onboard memory, 1 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion, total up to 12 GB SDRAM", the model in the link has 8GB as there will be different spec'd models in the range I guess. 4GB will be attached to the mainboard and non-removable.

That states both IPS and TN (along with a lower Res TN). I think you ordered would be good if you or anyone else can confirm once received. As you say a good deal anyway. Thx

Its coming tomorrow will see if I can sneak a look before its wrapped
Hah hah just read that it's a gift. You should definitely check it first to make sure it works
Could anyone please help me work out which is better / what the difference is between these two apart from size?
I'd prefer the 14" but I don't know if that alone is worth £50 more - are there any other benefits to this Dell laptop?

Please note other comments, there is a similar specs Dell for £450, 14 inch only, but the code will expire soon.
With regards to these 2:
I really like Asus form factor but Zenbook are premium built while Vivobook are just nice. The built is more premium at Huawei and for me this is important too.
Also, somebody knowledgeable mentioned this is IPS screen. I have not checked that. However, all the Vivobooks I came across so far, even the expensive ones were TN, not IPS. So this may be something to look into it, if it is TN, Huawei us definetely a better but.
Also, some identified the Asus may only have 4GB RAM, which I don't think it is, but you may have to read more. Read the other comments on this deal about the RAM.
For me, as much as I like Asus, the info is confusing and even if it was not, I think Huawei is a better buy.

it's an average laptop. Main concerns are poor screen, not an IPS. Only the top of the range Ryzen 7 has it.
And throttling issue due to insufficient cooling.
