The VivoBook lineup of laptops has been Asus mid-range option for some time now and has stood up as a very solid consumer option throughout its history and today we take a look at the latest model which is the X541UV-BH71-CB. This is the higher end of the VivoBook lineup as it comes with some impressive performance to satisfy the power type user who places high demands on their equipment. Below we will investigate some of the benefits and downsides to this model and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Core i7-6500U
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inch Non-Touchscreen
OS: Windows 10
As we hinted at above performance is one of the key factors of the Asus VivoBook Max X541UV-BH71-CB mainly due to the top end processor they have included which is the Intel Core i7. When you combine this with a full 8 GB of memory you end up with a machine that can easily handle day to day tasks and still have plenty of power left over for more demanding applications.
For mobility this Asus model is above average especially when consider it is a full sized laptop with a 15.6 inch display. It tips the scales at a very reasonable 2 KG and is slim enough to not be a nuisance when travelling at just 1.1 inches.
Unlike some of the other VivoBook models this particular one hasn’t completely neglected the graphics components. While it may not match up well in this category to a gaming rig for a mid-range laptop model the GeForce 920MX with 2 GB of dedicated memory is more then you see in plenty of other models.
The huge storage of the SATA hard drive that has been included is great for those who store anything and everything but a model like this would have surely benefited from a much faster SSD. While the storage capacity would have been limited the performance increase would have been well worth it.
Unfortunately unless you find the Asus VivoBook Max X541UV-BH71-CB it isn’t going to be easy on you wallet as it does demand a higher then average price tag but like anything you get what you pay for and it is easy to see why they can demand a higher price with this model.
What few downsides the Asus VivoBook Max X541UV-BH71-CB are very minor as they have done a great job of making a well rounded laptop that at the same time will impress with its overall performance, This is one VivoBook that Asus can be proud of.
