Connections

You'll find Wifi 5 inside the laptop, which is the previous generation. However, this does not mean its necessarily a major disadvantage. Wifi 5 is more than capable for the majority of the users, with only top tier users really requiring Wifi 6 at the moment.

Bluetooth is included, however it is Bluetooth 4 which is the previous generation. This won't stop most users, but ensure that anything you're planning on using is Bluetooth 4 compatible - which is should be.

There's an option of using the Type-C USB ports, with 1 x USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports being offered too, allowing both the use of almost any current peripheral, but also adaptors & dongles allowing use of additional ports for the laptop.

With a backlit keyboard, you'll clearly see your keys and ensure minimal mistakes when you're typing what you need to type.

The numpad inclusion on the laptop ensures optimal access to number keys, so if that's what you're after then this laptop has it for you.

The option of the fingerprint reader gives you login & security flexibility, by allowing you to sign in to your laptop with just the tip of your finger.

  • - 4.5
The ASUS VivoBook 15 F512DA is an inexpensive laptop that comes with some excellent features. The laptop is powerful enough to engage a mid-range user and even some heavy users can get by with this machine. The device is great for media consumption, thanks to its gorgeous 1080p screen. In this price range, you’d be hardpressed to find a better laptop with the same feature set. Highly recommended.

Our Ryzen 3 configuration retails for less than the Intel Core i3 configuration while offering essentially the same performance in the process. This is a good example of AMD's superior performance-per-dollar against Intel even in the budget space. Drawbacks include the limited 4 GB of RAM and low storage space, but this VivoBook is surprisingly easy to service and upgrade to give the system both longer legs and a low barrier of entry.
