"Cheap sleek laptop"

Zarni Lynn Kyaw | 24 August 2019

  • Pros:
    Window S
  • Pros:
    Huge Display
  • Pros:
    Great Keyboard
  • Con:
    Slow Processor
  • Con:
    Low Screen Brightness
  • Con:
    Heavy

I didn't expect much of a performance from the laptop since it has a slow processor but Windows S mode help with the slow processor. The 15.4-inch display really helps with viewing excel sheets and working on a big document but the low screen brightness even at the max level leaves something to desire for. The keyboard is great to type on, I was researching on a cheap laptop to buy for my school work and was exploring different options and decided to pull the trigger on this Asus laptop. I even try out my friend Asus for a test drive. I do wish that this laptop could be slimmer with less weight so that carrying around would not be so stressful.
