The Taiwanese OEM is on a spree to bring new and powerful laptops in India when they are really needed by the consumers. When its competitors are feeling difficult to bring new models in the country, ASUS is covering all the budgets keeping in mind of its wide range of consumers.
The VivoBook Ultra 14 was already available on Flipkart for some mouth-watering prices, the new VivoBook Ultra 15 M513IA with its wide range of colors makes the laptop look great. With all the necessary hardware and connectivity like its other VivoBook S14 and VivoBook Flip 14 laptops, it borrows the design style from its brothers.
While the VivoBook Ultra 14 was a cut-down version of the previous two laptops mentioned with a 14-inch screen, the VivoBook Ultra 15 comes with a greater screen and some added specs that make it a tad bit costlier.
It has almost the same sleek chassis to the VivoBook Flip 14 and features a 4-sided 15.6-inch (16:9) LED-backlit Full HD NanoEdge display with up to 85% screen-to-body ratio. Unlike the VivoBook Ultra 14, this FHD display has a brightness of only 250 nits along with an anti-glare screen. If you want one better go for the VivoBook S14 or ZenBook 14 and the color accuracy of 45% NTSC is low as well.
On the performance front, almost no compromise has been made, as you get both the 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 4500U and 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processors, so if you are seeking performance this is what you need. Another good thing I noticed with this laptop is that it features 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR4 3200MHz dual channel RAM and one of them is upgradable up to 12GB using 1x SO-DIMM slot.
However, for the price, you still get 512GB PCIe NVMe 3.0 x2 M.2 SSD along with one additional M.2 slot for storage expansion with the Ryzen 5 4500U variant. On the other hand, the Ryzen 7 4700U variant features 1TB SATA 5400RPM 2.5-inch hard disk along with 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe gen 3 SSD.
Much like the other VivoBooks mentioned earlier, this one too has the same full-size backlit keyboard with a colored Enter button and comes with 1.4mm key travel which is good enough for daily work.
This laptop too features a 42 Wh 3-cell lithium-polymer battery and can last you for 5-6 hours with normal usage. The ASUS VivoBook Ultra 15 M513IA features a 3.5mm combo audio jack, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C, a USB 3.1 Type-A (Gen1), and two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, and even a microSD card slot. It features a 720p HD camera along with Intel WiFi 6 & Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity.
Then there’s the fingerprint reader with Windows Hello support for faster logins along with built-in 2 W stereo speakers Harman Kardon certfied, with analog microphone.
There are three color variants of the laptop available on Amazon – Bespoke Black, Dreamy White & Cobalt Blue. The new ASUS VivoBook Ultra 15 starts at ₹ 56,298 for the Ryzen 5 4500U variant while costing ₹ 66,044 for the Ryzen 7 4700U variant.
