ASUS just announced their brand new lineup that was just added to the VivoBook series. This is the new VivoBook Ultra A512 – comes with a colorful appearance while maintaining a lightweight body. Yet for some reason, ASUS manages to pack in some serious hardware for a laptop of this price.
It’s a new dawn of laptops from ASUS as they are redefining what it means for laptops at this price. Honestly, I was shocked as well. And in this in-depth review, we’re telling you why.
The box in itself is pretty thin to begin with. But it is actually more than enough to protect the laptop inside.
Opening up the lid reveals that the laptop is sitting there in a protective fabric cloth sleeve, waiting for your hands. We can also see that the unit of VivoBook Ultra A512 we have for review is in the Transparent Silver color option since its brilliance is shining through the fabric.
Digging out everything we found that ASUS included the usual documentation, power brick, and something unique – a HDD upgrade kit.
This little HDD upgrade kit is where we’ll find a 2.5-inch hard drive mounting rail together with a heat spreader and ribbon cable to connect the SATA III disk to the motherboard. More on this later, since the VivoBook Ultra A512 only comes with a PCIe NVMe SSD inside.
