Asus VivoBook 15 X515EA Review And Specification

Asus VivoBook 15 X515EA Review And Specification

Like other less expensive Asus notebooks, the VivoBook 15 X515EA has an elegant appearance worthy of a notebook twice its price. This excellent portable device, which is a follow-up to the Ultraportable, maintains most things light and thin while being powerful enough to do most daily duties and even perform some basic photo editing. And that too without making you break the bank.

A luxury appearance, small screen bezels, and strong performance—made possible by an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD storage—are some of the standout qualities of the VivoBook 15 X515EA. These attributes enable it to compete with rival laptops.

Unfortunately, that's where things start to go wrong; even for a laptop at this price range, the battery life is poor and the display is dim and boring. Again, performance is adequate for standard web browsing and workplace applications, but its Core i5 processor will lag horribly under heavier workloads like demanding media editing or gaming.

Design and Features

When it comes to style, the Asus VivoBook 15 X515 is excellent at competing with laptops such as Acer's Aspire line. Its silver chassis gives it a professional appearance, and even though it is made of plastic and weighs just 2.6 kg—slightly more than the Acer Aspire 5 and HP Pavilion 15 (2.6 kg and 1.75 kg, respectively)—its overall design and construction feel well-thought-out.

The Asus VivoBook 15's interior has a keyboard that is integrated into the body of the laptop and is identical to the one seen on the company's flagship model. In addition, the trackpad has a fingerprint scanner for system security and is flush with the wrist rest without being visually distracting.

The 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 NanoEdge display on the VivoBook 15 X515EA features a little bezel on either side and a larger one at the top to house the webcam. Beyond its widescreen display, however, the display is a lackluster tool for watching internet videos due to its dark color profile and uncomfortable viewing angles.

Although you may watch YouTube videos without realizing the display's mediocre color quality, switching displays makes it obvious. Additionally, this laptop has somewhat strange viewing angles. To view the material on the VivoBook 15's dull screen, you must tilt your head precisely at an angle of almost 100 degrees.

Since most apps rely on dark mode, this problem is most noticeable in dark colors—specifically, grays and blacks. It's also difficult to ignore. Because of the shine issue, this makes using the laptop with Windows 11 at night difficult.

Keyboard & Ports

Ingenious design work by Asus allowed them to include a full number pad without overcrowding the keyboard deck, and you can rest your wrist comfortably while typing. Chiclet keys on the keyboard provide enough backlighting and are comfortable to type on, allowing you to complete tasks even in low light. Regarding the trackpad, its current position and width feel off-enter; it would be bigger.

Additionally, Asus' ErgoLift Hinge, which elevates and angles the keyboard for more comfortable typing when seated at a desk, is included with the VivoBook 15, adding to the laptop's allure. This design element, which was brought over from several of Asus' ROG gaming laptops, aims to improve ergonomics while using a laptop in motion. It's good to see the firm include these features in its entry-level laptop lineup.

Although the VivoBook 15 is a fairly thin laptop, it offers a respectable number of connectors; still, Thunderbolt 3 input would have been nice. Two USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot, and LED charging and battery status indicators are located on the left side.

A headphone/mic combination jack, an HDMI port, a USB Type-C port, a DC jack, and other ports are located on the right side.

A Battery's Life

The VivoBook 15 finds it difficult to reach the six-hour mark when it comes to battery life, in contrast to most low-cost laptops. With constant surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, it only lasts for five hours and twenty-four minutes.

Even though it does better in the same tests as other 15-inch laptops such as the Acer Aspire 5 (5:16) and the HP 15 laptop (4:58), it still performs worse than a few other low-cost laptops (6:42).
