Apart from the ROG Zephyrus GA502 and TUF Gaming FX505D, ASUS also launched the refreshed VivoBook Ultra A412 notebook. This model focuses on productivity and all-day computing, great for those who are always on-the-go and looking for something slim.
The ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412 packs a Ryzen 5-3500U processor, paired with a Radeon Vega 8 integrated GPU and 4GB of DDR4 RAM. In terms of storage, the laptop comprises of a 256GB SSD for speedy boot up times.
Looking at the laptop, the ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412 is slim and has a sleek design to it. It doesn’t feel too heavy as it only weighs 1.5KG. The next thing you’ll notice upon opening up the laptop is the almost frameless NanoEdge display. The 14-inch Full HD screen has bezels that are only 5.7mm thin, allowing it to have a smaller overall body for better portability.
Despite having a smaller footprint, ASUS has managed to include a numpad on the laptop itself – in the trackpad. The trackpad functions like a normal trackpad would, but with a tap on the NumberPad icon (on the trackpad itself), it turns into an LED-illuminated number pad. Pretty convenient, if you remember to touch the NumberPad icon. Besides that, the touchpad also has a fingerprint sensor built-in for added security with Windows Hello.
Being an all-day productivity machine, the ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412 has a large all-day battery life that supports fast charging technology. In just 49 minutes of charging, you could get the laptop’s battery life back up to 60%.
The ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412 comes in three eye-popping colours –
Transparent Silver, Slate Grey, Peacock Blue. The laptop will retail for RM2199, and is available starting today. For those who pre-order for the laptop on ASUS’ Laptop Store on Shopee during the 27th to 29th May, you will receive an ASUS Cerberus Gaming Headset and a ZenPower powerbank (total worth RM279).
