Product name: Asus VivoBook X412
Key specs: Intel Core i5 processor, Windows 10 Home, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD storage, HD webcam and 14-inch FHD display.
Asus refreshed its VivoBook laptop series earlier this summer with two new models - VivoBook X412 and X512.
VivoBook X412 has a 14-inch screen, while the X512 houses a 15-inch display. These two VivoBook models offer a compact design with slim bezels and build. VivoBook X412 is available at a starting price of ₹38,990 in India. We've been using the VivoBook X412 for some time and here's our review of the laptop.
Starting with the design, the VivoBook X412 looks very premium and sleek. The laptop is slim and light making it easy to carry around. For those who would prefer a bigger screen can go for the 15-inch model. I for one like smaller and thinner laptops so the VivoBook X412 was a perfect fit. It comes in four colour options of silver, grey, blue and coral.
The VivoBook X412 also features an 'EroLift' hinge for the display aimed to give a more comfortable hold for activities like typing. The hinge does have its advantages especially when you're sitting with the laptop on the bed. Up front, the VivoBook X412 packs a 14-inch Full HD display with 60Hz refresh rate and an anti-glare panel. One of the highlights of the laptop is its frameless four-sided NanoEdge display. The bezels on the laptop are pretty slim which gives more screen room.
