Top Customer Reviews

Asus vivobook S510UA - So far so good!

Bought this laptop after doing many hours of research.... So far I love it!

Super fast boot time.
Very little bloatware.
Upgradeable Ram.
Additional hard drive slot (I got the 250gb ssd version and will probably add a 1tb hdd)
While running multiple Google Chrome tabs, watching a video on YouTube, and running a full anti-virus scan the laptop was still silent (fans weren't even noticeable).
Laptop stays cool on your lap.
Keyboard is quiet.
Laptop is super thin and light weight which makes if very portable.

Display isn't that great (this is something I didn't really care about). For $620 you probably won't be able to find any laptop with these specs and a great display. There's always going to be a tradeoff. I chose to downgrade on the display and processor (i got the 8th gen i5 version which is more than enough power for me).
Webcam kind of sucks - This is something I really don't care about since I'll probably never use it.
Keyboard flex - Almost all ASUS laptops have a little keyboard flex and it was the main thing that scared me about buying this laptop. After using the laptop for a few days, I can officially say that I'm not even bothered by it. It's very comfortable to type with!
No numeric keypad - Again something I didn't really care about.
Not sure about battery life yet but I'm thinking you can get 6-8 hours out of this thing if you fool around with some settings. This wasn't a big deal to me since I'm always a few feet away from an outlet if I need a charge.

Overall, I'm really happy with this purchase! There's so many laptops out there and almost all of them have mixed reviews (which makes it incredibly difficult to pick one).

I'll give a 1 month, 6 month, and 1 year update (if I can remember to do so)
