Wrapping up the ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 review
Let me just conclude by saying that the ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 is actually a very good laptop on paper. The specs that make up this lightweight yet powerful laptop is a stunning feat – especially given the price. A 512GB NVMe SSD at this price is unheard of – but they give you an upgrade kit for you to slot in another 2.5-inch storage disk on your own.
This laptop really packs a punch with its Intel Core i5-8265U processor and the NVIDIA GeForce MX250. The keyboard good and the trackpad is decent. I was able to get work done and yet play some games on this laptop! The battery life is not bad either, together with the fairly decent charging time with a small charging brick.
My minor complaint is obviously, the RAM. Out of the box, you get 4GB and there is an empty slot for you to upgrade on your own. Honestly, I’d say the minimum is 8GB these days.
As for my biggest complaint, that is going to be the full plastic build quality. Sure, ASUS gave it a sheen but it can get scuffed up easily and ruin the beautiful paint job that ASUS has done.
Overall, for the price of RM2,899, it is actually quite good for its price. The ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 is a great buy for those who want something portable yet with decent performance for this price range. Heck, I can actually play some games using this lightweight laptop!
