4042987_1.jpg
Keep in contact
Thanks to the onboard camera, this device, once connected to Wi-Fi, will let you take part in video chats or virtual meetings, enabling the fun of the office to come to you.

The power of Intel Core i7
The Intel Core i7 processor in this laptop lets you flex your creative muscles. You won't have any problems running demanding software, and power-hungry programs like image manipulation and video editing will work like a dream.

Its 4-core, 8-thread design keeps everything running smoothly, and you'll also be able to enjoy a spot of casual gaming too.

What is RAM?
RAM (Random Access Memory) is different to the permanent storage provided by hard disk drives (HDD), solid-state drives (SSD) or memory cards in your equipment. RAM is used by your device to temporarily store data to carry out everyday operations. The more RAM your machine has, the faster you can expect it to open and run programs.

RAM packed
Featuring a massive 16GB of RAM, this computer is comfortable running lots of complex tasks at once, and you won't see any obvious lag or slowdown.

Super-fast loading with loads of storage
The 512GB Solid State Drive (SSD) gives you the capacity to store documents and media, while ensuring speedy and dependable access to your files and programs. Games will load up super-quick, and there's enough space for all your photos, videos, and music too.

Intel UHD Graphics
Intel’s UHD graphics processing unit (GPU) will enable you to enjoy a number of classic older games, along with some casual (web-based) gaming. You may be able to run more modern titles with reduced effects and frame rates.

Great entertainment
The Full HD display packs loads of detail into films, videos and games, with a built-in sound system that pumps out crisp and punchy audio.

Connecting your other devices
Connect to TVs or external displays with the HDMI output. Listen to music using a 3.5mm headphone jack. Connect to high-speed peripherals with the USB ports, and send data wirelessly between devices using Bluetooth.

    Putting this here to save someone disappointment.

    Screen:
    On Asus website they call it "IPS-level", that's marketing speak for "actually a TN panel but shhhh".
    1080p doesn't give you a great deal of screen real estate.
    The brightness is poor at 250 nits.
    It's only 60 Hz
    45% NTSC colour means it's useless for professional work.

    Asides from that:
    1 RAM slot which is already populated so no dual channel which means significantly decreased iGPU performance
    Entry level chassis that will likely break exactly when the warranty ends.
    No Thunderbolt despite the CPU supporting it.
    No DisplayPort.
    HDMI 1.4 so can't output 4K 60 Hz (30 Hz max)
    The webcam is VGA(!) That's 640x480. What year is this, 2010?
    Bluetooth 4.2, not 5.
    WiFi 5, not 6
    No backlight on keyboard.

    Seems like a lot of money for not a lot of laptop.

    Can you also add to your list cannot charge by USB C. Not can charge on one side. Cannot charge at all. I thought that was a criminal offence in the EU now.

    Might have been just phones.

    I think people see i7 and 16GB RAM and vote hot.

    Just a note the screen here is extremely dim. If you have a decent phone which can get up to 1000 nits. Put the brightness at 0 then go up 2. That's how dim this screen would be.
    Difficult to use indoors on sunny days nevermind impossible outside.

    Looks good, but low NITS. Is it special otherwise?

    Seems good to me, Are any techies able to comment on the value of it?
    I can get this for £413.59 with a work discount. Seems a pretty good price to me.
    Onboard graphics, would this really be ok for creatives, or is the product page lying to me lol? (edited)

    I’m a software developer and bought this one from Argos earlier in the year. Performance is fast and the screen is amazing. The main downside is the battery life. It plays well with windows 10, 11 and Linux.

    Presume games like Fortnite and Roblox will be ok to play on this

    Fornite will be just "OK" at 1080P low. 40-60FPS. (edited)

    Best laptop deal so far by a long margin.
    If you're getting it for around £415 as some of you are saying from work then why are you hesitating?
    Indeed this will do everything you throw at it

    As far as those who are saying it won't do this it won't do that there's no evidence of that at all.

    If you are that clever why don't you tell us why it won't handle games and what other things it won't handle

    So I say go for it best buy you get today (edited)
    Avatar
    You reckon it'll handle video editing/ sound recording? Premiere Pro, Pro Tools, etc?

    Just after a bit of advice please, I'm a bit out of touch with this sort of tech.

    I was looking at getting this laptop for my daughters school work while at sixth form:
    johnlewis.com/asu…944

    Or should I spend the extra £100 and get this offer?

    Or does anyone else have any better options?

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer

    They're the same laptop, this just has a very slightly faster CPU and more RAM.

    Hi guys,
    the laptop is great and price too, if you don't care if it's 15.6 inch or 14 inch I would head to box.co.uk and get the ASUS VivoBook Pro 14 AMD Ryzen 5 8GB RAM 512GB SSD 14" OLED Laptop - the OLED screen is magnificent and it's £450 (edited)
  8. Avatar
    Had the silver version, never used and returned. As went for this as a bit more extra £ preferred the oled screen 600 nits brightness (opposed to 200 nits led screen) and 12th generation i5-12500h 8 core 16 thread processer, way faster than i7 11th gen 4 core 8 thread processor. Oled screen is absolutely visually brilliant especially with videos! Only thing with these asus laptops is sound output volume from internal speakers is disappointingly low.

    If you find a good deal in the same price range for a better spec then please share. The one you posted is much more expensive.

    An "okay" deal, really. Last month had the Vivobook Pro OLED 5800H for ~£40 more, which stomps all over this but got nowhere near as hot. Hukd effect I guess (edited)

    Good spec for the money. But wouldn't use it for anything intensive. Will be a fast media consuming device and fast. Photo editing with light room or photos hop, but that's about it. Defo not up for video editing or gaming.
    Avatar
    Would be fine for video editing, assuming some fast USB3 storage. Sure, it won't do real-time pro 8k or anything but for most people's usage it would actually do just fine at it. People totally over-estimate the hardware needed for non-professional video editing. For pro-level stuff and twitch gaming, it's more of a "well duh". There has never been a sub-£1000 laptop suitable for that.

    Great value for money!
    The best spec I've seen for this price!

    Would this work well for video editing?

    Which twisted person in marketing wrote this:

    "Keep in contact

    Like all laptops if you want better battery, lighter weight and better screen you need to pay more. Those things are premium.
    This laptop looks great for the price and will suit most. (edited)

    I don't understand the heat on this. A middling range laptop with an energy hog chip and poor display. Just a heads up that something like the Ryzen 5500u has two more cores and will perform slightly worse in single core performance but a good margin better in multicore while using less power.
    Will cost you over £100 less also. 1080p 16:9 on a 15" laptop in 2022 for this money is a bit rubbish.

    Does anybody know if the RAM in this laptop can be upgraded? I can't find a definitive answer without knowing the precise model number to check against the ASUS website. I suspect that it is, but reluctant to purchase if the RAM is soldered (or limited to 16GB for some reason)

    Update: if this is indeed the X1500EA model then it looks limited to 16GB. (edited)

    old stock im guessing. 13th gen is out in the wild now, this is 11th gen. probably some retailers have been stuck with these older laptops when the work from home/school closures ended.

    What are laptops like this compared to the MacBook Air? They’re half the price and the way people talk about MacBook Air value you’d think this would be better than them but to me the build quality looks rubbish in comparison. I know this is a larger laptop and it’s not exactly like for like but can anyone tell me what sort of thing is an actual comparative laptop from apple range to these 500 ish deals that have been coming up and getting linked to within comments of other deals? Thanks
