The Acer Aspire 3 14 with an AMD Ryzen processor has sufficient storage and good battery life, making it well-suited for general use and multitasking. It's portable and has a decent performance for everyday tasks. Conversely, the ASUS Vivobook 15 has a larger screen, which might be better for those who prefer a bigger display for work or entertainment, but its storage is significantly less than the Acer, affecting how much data you can store locally. Both laptops offer similar build quality and are not designed for intensive gaming or specialized tasks like 3D rendering or heavy engineering software. Give Feedback

Sascha Mölck, | April 2022
"The Asus VivoBook 15 is a quiet office notebook with a strong screen. However, the VivoBook 15 still has room for improvement. Office and internet applications as well as simple games do not pose any major challenges for the VivoBook - this is ensured by the built-in combination of Ryzen 7 5700U APU and 16 GB of RAM. Heat and noise emissions are acceptable. But, the laptop has weaknesses that should not be present at this level: lack of keyboard lighting, a slow memory card reader, no fast USB-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 2 or Thunderbolt 4) with Power Delivery and DisplayPort. Battery runtimes can only be described as average."
