About this deal

Its wide-view FHD panel features an anti-glare coating to reduce unwanted distractions from irritating glare and reflections, so you can truly focus on what's in front of you. You can opt-out of S mode free of charge; however, this is a one-time switch, and you can't go back to S mode after activating the full version of the operating system. You can get both laptops with much better-performing 1080p IPS displays if you don't like the 720p TN panel option.

Besides providing structural rigidity, it also strengthens the hinge joint and protects internal components. Both laptops have dedicated NVIDIA GPU options, but they don't perform much better than the Intel CPU's integrated graphics. Arriving with a plastic chassis that features a roughened Slate Gray colourway, the VivoBook 15 X515 is a direct competitor to popular productivity-focused models out there like the Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320. Unfortunately, while the RAM module is user-replaceable, you can only run the memory in a single-channel configuration because there's only one slot, which impacts performance in applications that benefit from a higher bandwidth.Raised in the '90s, Ege discovered his passion for tech and video games during late-night gaming sessions with his cousin.

Its 720P TN panel looks dim, washed out, and inaccurate, with narrow viewing angles that make it unsuitable for sharing content.

Whether for work or play, ASUS X515 is the entry-level laptop that delivers powerful performance and immersive visuals. The CPU doesn't throttle even though it gets very hot, and there's no performance loss on the GPU either as the temperature is well within the normal range. There's a good amount of flex in the display and bottom panel, but almost none when the laptop is closed. The SATA hard drive will be significantly slower, so it's best to get a model with an SSD as the main drive. Upon receipt of your item we will provide a FOC repair including any mechanical parts, if in the unlikely event the unit is beyond economical repair we will provide a like for like replacement.
