looking for a great affordable laptop that can be used for school and personal use? That's it. It took about 4 days to decide which laptop to buy, but I finally figured out exactly what that would be. There aren't a lot of youtube video reviews about this laptop, but it's worth buying. Even if you don't go to college, this is a great laptop for personal use. Backlit keyboards are a lifesaver for late-night use. The only problem (not the laptop itself) is that windows 10 took a while to install Chrome because it only allowed me to use the Microsoft Edge browser, but I figured it took Chrome. If you need any help with that, the answer to me would be wrong.
I had an ASUS Vidbook with Intel core i3 (most of these reviews also seem to have AMD chips) for only a week but I was very impressed. What I love first.
1. I like the screen. I've seen comments saying the screen is basically rubbish. The model I have is great for what I want. I have anywhere between 8 and 10 laptops in my life, from Dell to Sony, and I love the display on ASUS. Mainly because it's not overly saturated shiny. A softer natural light is like reading a piece of paper against the bright blues that cause headaches and eye strain.
2. I really like the keyboard so far (I'm not sure how it will last over time) the keystrokes are easy and the backlight is right.
3. Too fast for what I did. The loading speed is great, there's not much to contend with of any inflated items I find on Dell and other computers. I mostly surf the internet, stream videos, create Power point presentations, etc...
4. One of the most important things I love about this computer is that it's especially light on price, you get a relatively light computer with a fairly standard-sized keyboard and screen without paying Apple prices.
I really like this purchase. Core i3 1005G1, 128 GB NVME SSD and 8 GB RAM. It feels so fast and responsive. Fingerprint login is super fast and one of the reasons I got it on Acer is Cheaper. I bought this for my wife, because she only needs the most basic features, but 10.I didn't want to be content with anything less than the next generation Intl Core or the 4000 series AMD Ryzen. I wouldn't change anything about it for the price, except that it has 250GB to 500GB of storage. The OEM is paying just $ 20 for the Hynix SSD, they could have invested $ 10 more for a larger SSD. My laptop has 32GB of RAM, but 8GB on this laptop doesn't feel slow at all. No bloatware from Asus. Pre-installed in three separate languages, Office365 is inexcusable by Microsoft. And why does it take 7 minutes to remove each language? So do you hope that losing patience and giving up install can haunt you? Windows S Mode is annoying, and disabling it is the only reason I need to help my wife install this laptop. Although Windows S Mode may be the reason for having too little bloatware installed.
Pros: Ports! Wow, it's nice to have 4 USB ports, and one of them is the USB-C; NVME SSD; a 1920 x 1080 display with good brightness. Core i3 is super responsive. Lightweight and thin. Fine slopes. The very premium plastic case seems to be better than HP Envy aluminum, replaced and much lighter. Excellent keyboard and track pad.
Cons: there is no DDR3 wired LAN. It exceeds my exceptions in everything except storage for the price. 128GB on the small side. I'd rather upgrade storage later than buy something else with a bigger drive. The LCD may use darker, black, but this is a choice in a small detail at the price point. Their viewpoints are on the poor side, but they don't matter to me, so do me and my wife.
I bought this for my daughter in high school. I was very surprised by the performance of this budget laptop. He uses Flash-based training programs, watches YouTube and checks his Gmail. No bloatware is installed and comes with 1 year of accidental damage when you save it. He loves the fingerprint reader, widescreen and backlit keyboard. The camera is acceptable for video chat and includes an led light when it is turned on. The chassis was surprisingly stiff for the budget laptop, and the keyboard had an acceptable feedback and feel. Screen quality isn't the best, but it's livable for a budget laptop.
CPU: runs great fast
Ram: 8gb runs fast
Best budget laptop hands down....
The screen is pure rubbish though. the viewing angles are terrible and the panel is just grey.... I know how to explain this, but yes.... that sucks, but you won't find a better laptop for $ 400, so it's 5 stars for the price.
I'm happy with the purchase, it took me 1 week to get to Costa Rica, less superfast than the estimated time! This is a very good choice given the price of the hardware and the type of machine I'll use for college lessons and some casual games like The Lich King of world of Warcraft, The Game of my childhood... Although the screen is excellent and some comments show the opposite with viewing angles, the fact is not a factor affecting me since the PC I'm going to use head on, it's not another way to use it so it's a matter of pleasure, I see it in relation to sound, always laptops have a standard sound, if you want better sound Or, if you want a somewhat demanding laptop, buy one that will solve the game and matter.. The truth is, I have 0 complaints with the machine-this is one of the best laptop brands Asus is a great investment given that, I think, for people who don't want to spend so much on a laptop I'd recommend it, but good for the studio and some casual games.
