This Black Friday, Amazon is taking $130 off the Asus Vivobook F510UA-AH55. This won’t last long, but they are a bit early for Black Friday but we aren’t complaining. with a 8th gen Intel i5-8250H, 8GB of RAM, a 128GB m.2 SSD, plus a 1TB HDD, and a FHD 1920×1080 Display.
At this price point you’re really getting quite a deal, especially for a decent commuter laptop. Coming in at 3.75lbs and only 0.76″ thin, this laptop is easy to carry around with you anywhere.
Yeah But What About The GPU
So this is probably the only point that this laptop falls short. It has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620. It’s not that great of a GPU, and if you’re looking for a gaming laptop that’s also somewhat cheap, this isn’t the laptop for you.
Of course you can play some casual, low intensity games (or even a little more graphically intensive games if you drop down to 1280×720) but this Asus Vivobook laptop would be best suited for browsing, word doc, light processing, and movies.
If we’re just looking for stuff to complain about, the camera isn’t actually 720p. it’s 480p which is a bit upsetting since it’s 2019, but not the end of the world.
It also has 2 USB 2.0 ports. For most they probably won’t use these ports to the max capacity, but if you’re plugging in an external hard drive or anything make sure it’s the 3.0 USB or you’ll be waiting a while for transfer times.
Right now this laptop is a steal. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal for something so light, thin, and fast. Having the only drawback being it’s gaming capabilities, that really doesn’t limit this laptop much in terms of who it would be good for.
We wouldn’t expect it to drop much lower anytime soon, before shooting back up to it’s original price.
This laptop would make a fantastic gift for a student, or just someone who works on the go and wants a light laptop that has some power without really breaking the bank.
