ASUS has always been known to be the first to bring new hardware onboard and so in India they have become the first laptop brand to actually bring 12th gen Intel processors to budget laptops. Their new Vivobook laptops will now sport the latest 12th Gen P-series CPUs while still having a starting price of only ₹42,990 (for the Core i3 variant).
It brings an array of upgrades on the inside, making it a very competitive offering in the segment. Not just that, it comes with a host of auditions that improve the user experience in a practical way. It all starts with the design, with the 2022 ASUS Vivobook 14/15 offering a new minimal branding on the lid, enabling users to express themselves better.
It is devoid of heavy branding, as a premium finish that is generally only found on more expensive devices. It will be available in two colours, depending on how bold or stealth you prefer your PC to be. There you have a 14-inch or 15.6-inch display with an 82%/81% screen-to-body ratio and up to 250 nits of peak brightness.
Providing an uncompromised experience is another key pillar of Vivobooks. You’ll quickly notice that even with a sleek form factor and low weight, it doesn’t cut any corners such as fewer ports or a smaller battery. Other notable conveniences include a physical fingerprint scanner, Wi-Fi 6, 65W fast charging and military-grade MIL-STD 810H durability.
