Are you in the market for a laptop for university, or maybe one to do your basic web browsing on? The new ASUS Vivobook Go 15 (E1504F) might just be the perfect match for you. With pricing that starts from as low as RM2,299, the Vivobook Go 15 is a rather affordable option for those who do not need all that much computing power.
Speaking of computing power, you get the latest Ryzen 5 7520U processor under the hood, paired with up to 16GB LPDDR5-5500 and 512GB PCIe SSD storage. ASUS also threw in some of their own goodies like a 720p webcam aided by ASUS’ 3DNR technology and a physical privacy shield, as well as the comfortable ASUS ErgoSense keyboard.
There’s also a fingerprint scanner embedded in the trackpad, and the screen goes all the way to 180-degrees for easier collaboration. While made entirely out of plastic, ASUS did put the Vivobook Go 15 through the wringer with the industry’s strictest military-grade durability testing, with up to 26 individual tests. And it passed, so you know this is one solid laptop here. Overall, not too shabby.
The screen might be the only weak point of the ASUS Vivobook Go 15. As an entry-level laptop, you get a FHD display that covers a rather limited 45% of the NTSC gamut here, with both TN and IPS panel options, depending on the configuration you go for. On that note, let’s talk about the configurations that are available in Malaysia.
