ASUS has been positioning VivoBook as one of their affordable laptop series for a long time. However, the 2019 edition of VivoBook is surprisingly premium with vibrant colorful design and premium features that traditionally found on more expensive laptops. The VivoBook 14 and 15 Series (X412 / X512) comes with 2 display sizes – 14 and 15.6 inch respectively. Both the laptops are more compact and lightweight than its previous generation. Their slim-bezel designs helped reduce overall footprint compared to standard laptops with the same screen size. This makes VivoBook more portable, with dimensions that slip easily into a backpack. Both the notebooks feature the four-sided frameless display, ASUS named it as “NanoEdge” display that ensures up to 87% screen-to-body ratio – which feels quite impressive considering it as one of the budget notebook series of the market.
