ASUS seems on the fire right now since they have released so many good products in this year. They are not only focus on providing gaming machine with their ROG, but they also focus on more general market on lightweight and slim choice on Vivobook series. I have seen this case as a good move because not all people are into with gaming, so it’s better if they provide us a better choice. Now, the company comes with the new release with ASUS Vivobook F510UA.
This product is coming with Intel 8th generation process which is great for this price. I guess they are trying to compete with other companies like Dell with XPS 13, Lenovo with Yoga 920, and Acer with Swift 5. All of these machines are on the same level, but here ASUS comes with ultra-light, ultra-thin laptop, but in such a good price. They will easily undercut the other rivals. But, what is expected from its portability? We are going to find it out on this article.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further about it. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
Design And Build
The F510UA is quietly similar to what we found on the previous Vivobook series. It’s just like a refreshed version of it, but in thinner and lighter package. I really love their movement to reduce the price because it’s really worth to see it specs and build quality. As for the weight, it’s just around 3.7 pounds and would easily slide into your favorite backpack. I do not find it hard to bring around because the weight itself is already good.
I have seen a good number changes on this latest series product. The most important thing to see her is the movement from ASUS to cut the price. The price here is cheaper, but they still come with the same specifications and better build quality with aluminum construction and shiny coating finishing.back to menu ↑
Vivobook F510UA is one of the earlier released products to sport the performance with Intel Kaby Lake processor. The inside is well equipped with quad core processor with 1.6 GHZ clock. This chip is also combined with 8 GB RAM and making both of surfing and doing multi-tasking better in every way. I could not found any single lag or slow down during my test. I have tried to render some videos and open multiple tabs on Chrome, but the performance is still wise even on the worst condition.
Sadly, the graphic card system is that not much in comparable with its processor. The system is equipped with Intel Graphic card which is not bad in doing daily usage like watching videos and editing documents, but not that great in term of gaming. But, that is not a big problem here because most people do not look it as a gaming machine.

|Graphics||NVIDIA GeForce 940MX|
|Memory||8GB DDR4 Memory|
This is probably the most important thing that people look for from this thing. I have to say that the battery life is not really that great with many other similar laptops. On the Macbook Pro 2014, I could get for more than 8 hours during the test, but here I only find the battery can last for more than five or six hours. As for lower usage, you might get better result and I am pretty sure it would be able to last enough to use on your school.back to menu ↑
Pros And Cons
As for pros, the processor its becoming the main selling point because there are not much company that want to go with this new chip for this price. I do not really know how ASUS can make the price is so cheap with this specs. The performance is wise and we can expect a good thing from it.
As for cons, the only bad thing I found here is the battery life which is not that good. It’s not that bad, but I hope the company can pack it with something that last better than my previous laptop. But, 6 hours battery is already good enough, so I cannot make any big complain here.back to menu ↑
