For the past few months, I have been using Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA as my main laptop. It has a lot of great features that make it stand out from other laptops in its price range.
The keyboard is comfortable to type on and the sound quality is good, but there are some areas where this laptop could be improved.
This review will go over these items so you can decide if Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA is right for you.
One of the best things about Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA is its battery life. I have been able to get up to eight hours of use on a single charge, which is more than most laptops in this price range.
The downside to this is that the laptop can be a bit heavy, so it’s not as portable as some other options. Another thing I like about Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA is its keyboard.
It’s comfortable to type on and has a good amount of key travel. The touch-pad is also very responsive, making it easy to navigate around Windows.
The display could be better though. It has a maximum resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels which doesn’t offer as much detail as other laptops in this price range.
This can be especially noticeable when trying to stream online videos or play games, as the images look less crisp than they would on better displays.
Speaker and Sound
The speakers are good for laptop speakers though and produce nice sound quality, but it is still lacking compared to some external options that come with Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA .
One area that Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA really excels at is its processor performance. It has an Intel Celeron N3350 CPU with two cores clocked at up to 2000 GHz each. Combined with its large amount of RAM (upgraded from standard DDR) can perform very well even when multi tasking.
This laptop also has a lot of storage space with up to 1000 GB on an HDD and 32GB on an SSD, giving you more than enough room for all your programs, documents, videos, music and photos.
One highlight is its large amount of built in storage space. It comes standard with 128 GB on the SSD which is perfect if you are looking for high performance boot times as it allows the OS to load quickly after powering up.
The downside to this though is that there isn’t much extra free disk space available since Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA only has a 500 GB HDD as its secondary storage option.
The other downside to Asus Vivobook 15 R565MA is the lower resolution screen which only has a maximum display of 1366 by 768 pixels.
Keyboard, sound quality and touchscreen are some strong features. One area where it falls short though is in its low-resolution screen that offers less detail when playing videos or games than others with higher resolutions.
It also lacks an optical drive (DVD). Its processor performance can’t match what you get on more expensive laptops like Asus Vivobook S15 S555UB , but it still provides great value for money at less than $400.
Another one is that there aren’t as many built in storage options as other laptops, but that isn’t a big issue since you can always upgrade it by adding an SSD.
