A powerful and perfect Asus laptop for working at an excellent price


Asus is no longer really a brand to present. The Taiwanese manufacturer indeed offers a wide variety of high-tech products and in particular several ranges of laptops at very varied prices and for all uses. For video games, we can cite ROGs and TUFs with dedicated graphics cards. In terms of ultraportable, the Zenbooks are excellent references. But there is also the Vivobook range, less expensive, but which remains very qualitative. Today we are offering you a great promotion on the Vivobook R515, which is particularly well equipped, and which benefits from a reduction of € 200 at Cdiscount. It thus drops to € 799

An important clarification, first of all: the Vivobook R515 is not strictly speaking a laptop PC for gaming, since it does not have a dedicated graphics card. It will be necessary, on this point, to be satisfied with an integrated graphics chip (iGPU) Intel Iris Plus, which will still be sufficient to launch a large majority of games in 2D as well as titles in 3D not very greedy, or in definitions weaker. For example, you can play World of Warcraft, Rocket League, League of Legends or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive without worry.

A laptop PC first and foremost dedicated to productivity, therefore, but which displays a very nice technical sheet. There is a powerful and recent Intel processor (Core i7-1065G7 with 4 cores / 8 Threads), 16 GB of RAM (DDR4) and a 512 GB NVMe SSD for storage. Enough to launch a wide variety of software, from the Office pack to the Adobe suite.
‘On the screen side, the Vivobook R515 incorporates a comfortable 15.6-inch anti-reflective panel‘in Full HD / 60Hz (1920×1080 pixels). The image is highlighted by a rather thin frame, especially on the sides. The connection is quite satisfactory, since we are entitled to 2 USB 2 ports (to connect an external mouse or keyboard), 1 USB 3 port, 1 USB-C port, 1 HDMI output and a plug. jack for audio.

Finally, we appreciate the ease of transport of the Asus Vivobook R515, since it weighs only 1.8 kg and will slip easily into a medium-sized bag. A real mobile work tool.
