ASUS, the company which once used to deal with microchips and motherboards, has now turned out to be a leading laptop manufacturer. With its sleek design, high-end specs, and a budget-friendly price, ASUS is going neck to neck with reputed brands such as Dell and HP. Ranging from notebooks to high-performance gaming laptops, ASUS has everything in store to cater the different requirements of different users.
That being said, today we’ll be sharing our thoughts and reviews on one of ASUS’s latest mid-range notebook, the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T. The laptop is available for a price of around Rs. 45,000. At this price, you would want the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T to have all the basic features with a couple of perks of high-end laptops. Surprisingly, ASUS has successfully managed to add the best features in Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T. From 1TB storage capacity to responsive fingerprint scanner, the laptop has several features that will easily impress many consumers.
So, here’s a complete review of Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T.
In terms of design, ASUS has always been in the lead with its shining sleek designs. If only the design would have mattered, ASUS would have been at the number one position in the laptop industry. Now, with the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T, the company has continued to carry forward the legacy. The laptop features a metallic gray color on the back with the famous ASUS logo, giving it the typical ASUS look.
However, as soon as you move towards the track pad area, the color shade slightly changes to light gray. The black keys on the keypad merge with the light gray shade to enhance the overall look of the laptop. As we mentioned, the design has always been ASUS’s plus-point and same is the case with the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T. As far as the design is concerned, we’d surely give the laptop a thumbs-up.
Build Quality and Durability
At first, we didn’t expect the notebook to offer a premium build quality but surprisingly it is quite durable. The laptop weighs around 2.65 kgs and therefore doesn’t fall under the category of light-weight laptops. However, despite having such a heavy weight, ASUS has managed to fit everything in a slim and sleek body.
The only thing that may be a concern for several people is the metallic back which will be highly vulnerable to scratches. However, you can avoid the scratches by covering the back with a protector. The keys and the track pad are durable as well and can easily handle the tyranny of over-enthusiastic gamers.
Now that we have talked about the physical appearance of the notebook, let’s move forward towards its technical specifications. Talking about the processor, the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T runs on a quad core 8th Gen Intel Core i5 8250U Processor. The processor clocks at a frequency rate of 1.6 GHz, which in our opinion is not a big deal as most of the other laptops with similar price range have even surpassed the barrier of 2.0 GHz. At a lower frequency rate, multi-processing is going to be a time-consuming task.
Like any other mid-range laptop, the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T also comes with a 1 TB HDD hard drive with a clock rate of 5400rpm. However, at this price range, ASUS could have provided an SSD or an Optane-HDD hard drive. No doubt the HDD hard drive works fine but when it comes to fast data transfer, the SSD hard drive wins the battle. But in case the storage space is a higher priority than fast data transfer rates, then 1 TB HDD hard drive is perfect for you.
RAM and Graphics Processor
The Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T comes with an 8 GB DDR4 memory, which completely justifies the price. As far as the RAM is concerned, you’ll be getting what you have paid for. However, enthusiastic users and gamers should consider upgrading the RAM to 12 or 16 GB for a better performance.
Backing up the 8 GB memory, ASUS has also added an NVidia MX130 2GB DDR5 graphics processor, especially to cater the needs of game buffs. The presence of a dedicated processor is surely a relief as process management becomes slightly smoother.
The laptop gets its juice from a two-celled Lithium Polymer battery. Thankfully, ASUS has decided to ditch the typical Li-ion batteries which have a lower battery backup than Lithium polymer batteries. On a full charge, you can expect the laptop to continue going for at least 4-5 hours, which is quite better than other similar range as well as expensive laptops.
The Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T features a 15.6-inch full-HD anti-glare display, specially designed to cater the needs of movie buffs. You can watch your favorite movies without having to worry about your eyes getting stresses, thanks to the anti-glare technology. Furthermore, the color adjustment is perfectly fine, allowing the laptop to offer a sharp picture quality.
The dual stereo speaker system ensures a superior audio quality, giving you an enriched audio experience, every time you watch a movie or play a game. The Asus Sonic Master Technology also employs professional grade audio codecs, giving the user the flexibility to adjust customized audio profiles. While watching a movie, we experienced a loud and clear sound and not even once we had to pause the video and go back to the previous frame.
Apart from this, the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T also comes with a pre-installed Windows 10 operating system running on a 64-bit architecture. A fingerprint scanner is also present, allowing the user to unlock the laptop with his finger only. The scanner is quite responsive and unlocks the laptop within fraction of a second. The side exhaust always ensures an efficient cooling and maintains a normal pressure of the motherboard, even on a heavy-performance.
Here’s the thing, the Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T is a reliable and efficient mid-range machine. If you are looking for a laptop that costs around 45k-50k with advanced features, Asus Vivobook X507UF-EJ092T is your answer.
