ASUS Vivobook 15X OLED Review: Great Performance With An Affordable Price Tag From RM 3,299

ASUS Vivobook 15X OLED Review: Great Performance With An Affordable Price Tag From RM 3,299 15

The ASUS Vivobook 15X OLED was brought into the Malaysian market recently. It definitely fares well among its competitors as you are getting a premium display with such an affordable price.

Design

ASUS Vivobook 15X OLED

The Vivobook 15X OLED comes in two colors, Quiet Blue and Icelight Silver. The one you will be seeing in our review will be the Quiet Blue. Despite being an 15″ laptop, it is slim enough to pop in any laptop backpack available. It is light for its size, but due to its size, I would still prefer to have it in a bag to carry it around.

The laptop has the usual ASUS vivobook logo etched on its cover. The laptop comes with a matte plastic chasis. However, it does not feel too plasticky which some cheaper plastic does. The matte on it made it feel solid  and comfortable to touch.

On the left side of the laptop would be a USB A and on the right we have a charging port, HDMI port, 2x USB A, USB C (non-PD) and an audio jack. I felt like they could have made the USB C a PD port instead of using back its charging port. Not only, it would reduce a port, it would be easier to carry around and not to be worried about having to bring an extra charger around.

Opening in the chassis, we have a 15′ OLED screen with a webcam nest on the top bezel. ASUS went the extra length to add in a physical privacy shield that slide over for privacy. It also shows you a red dot cover when it is covering the camera for a peace of mind that it is well covered.

Coming down to the keyboard, it is no surprised that ASUS kept a full size keyboard so that you can type with comfort. The keycaps are slightly dished which are made for precise and comfort typing (like SA and MDA keycaps). It is easier to feel and guide your fingers around the keyboard when compared to classic flattened keycaps.

As much as having a 15″ laptop has ample space for a full size keyboard, I think they can omit the numpad on the laptop so that the typing zone could me more centralized. I am so used to a 60% keyboard that it took me a while to get used to the left skewed typing zone.

Below the keyboard would be the touch pad with a fingerprint sensor on the top right of the touch pad.

Coming back to the OLED screen, 15′ screen is quite the right size for those who work long hours with their laptop or consume entertainment on their laptop screen. With a 15′ screen, it is suitable for students or office workers whom need to work with a split screen.

ASUS OLED screens are not a stranger to many as they have been rolling out almost all their laptops with it since years ago. If you have not know this already, the OLED screen displays such vivid and detailed visuals that are pleasent to the eyes.

The new OLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate and 0.2 ms pixel  response time is incredibly smooth and clear.  The display’s color gamut can be quickly and easily switched for different use or preference. The OLED display is capable of displaying cinema color standard for the best experience of watching movies and videos.

Performance and User Experience

The Vivobook 15X OLED is  laptop that could be your daily companion for daily task. The one we review came with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H with AMD Radeon Graphics 8GB DDR4 on board is pretty much able to handle your assignments, presentation, daily work documents and media consumption. For heavier task, we would recommend you to opt for the one with AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU for better workflow.

Connectivity wise, the Vivoboook 15X OLED is WiFi 6 ready enabling you to load your web content almost instantly (well, that depends on your WiFi too).

Using the Vivobook for a whole day without charge would not be a problem at all.  It has a large 70 Wh battery capacity to carry your workload for a whole day before charging. It’s charging brick provides 90W fast charging however, personally I would still hope that it had a PD charging port for emergency charging or that I wouldn’t need to bring a charger brick around.

Worth It?

The Vivobook 15X OLED worth every penny spent. For such a price point, you are getting a smooth and quality visual experience that would normally be available on premium laptops out there. 120Hz OLED display smoothens your visual experience and need for clearer content display. For those whom need better processing power could just top up RM 400 for the AMD 7 Ryzen model.

Both the models are now available one ASUS official store on Shopee, Lazada and their official website. For more info check out this link here to learn more about the product.
