ASUS VivoBook 15 overview

  • 1Description

The 15.6" VivoBook 15 X505BA Notebook from Asus is a thin and lightweight laptop, ideal for users looking for a portable, everyday system. It's powered by a 3.0 GHz AMD A9-9420 dual-core processor, 8GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, and integrated AMD Radeon R5 graphics. For storage, it's equipped with a 1TB 5400 rpm SATA hard drive. Should you need more space, you can attach external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports as well as its multi-format media card reader.

The 15.6" 1366 x 768 display is built with ultra-thin 7.7mm bezels, which makes it possible to fit within a standard 14" chassis, resulting in an 81% screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience. There's also an HDMI port so you can connect an external display for enhanced multitasking and larger viewing. Other integrated features include 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, a webcam, microphone, speakers, and a combo audio jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

Thinner & Lighter
The VivoBook 15 is thin and light, measuring in at 0.8" thin and weighing only 3.64 pounds, making it a great choice as an everyday laptop.
NanoEdge Display
The VivoBook 15 manages to fit a 15.6" display within the body of a 14" laptop thanks to its ultra-narrow 7.7mm bezels. Moreover, it has an 81% screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience.
USB Type-C
USB Type-C utilizes a reversible connector so there's no wrong way to plug it in. Furthermore, adhering to USB 3.0 standards, it can transfer data at speeds of up to 5 Gb/s.
Asus Splendid & Tru2Life Video Technology
Asus Splendid technology provides you with optimized viewing modes depending on your current application. Meanwhile, Asus Tru2Life Video technology utilizes intelligent algorithms to enhance the sharpness and contrast and videos for more vivid and realistic images.
Asus SonicMaster
Asus SonicMaster is a combination of hardware and software features designed to provide you with powerful, clear audio with minimal distortion.
Asus IceCool technology uses smart fan control, thin heatpipes, and an optimized internal layout to keep things operating at cooler temperatures.
The battery within the VivoBook 15 is designed with a longer lifespan and features fast-charging technology so you can charge it up to 60% in just 49 minutes.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
