Ratings by Category

Portability:
4.3
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
Battery Life:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Operating Noise:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
Build Quality:
4.0
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
General Use:
3.8
The ASUS Vivobook 15X is equipped with a capable processor and an ample amount of RAM, making it suitable for everyday tasks and some multitasking. However, its moderate battery life and screen quality which is not top-tier for color accuracy or brightness may not satisfy users with intense multimedia consumption or those who need to work for extended periods without charging.
Keyboard Quality:
3.8
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Engineering & Design:
3.3
The ASUS Vivobook 15X provides adequate CPU and RAM for engineering and design tasks, but its GPU may limit performance in highly graphical applications and its screen quality offers limited color coverage, which could affect tasks requiring color accuracy.
General Use Screen Quality:
3.3
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Gaming, 3D & AI:
3.2
The ASUS Vivobook 15X is fair for gaming and 3D due to its integrated AMD Ryzen 5 7530U Vega 7 graphics, which can handle some gaming and 3D applications but won't match the performance of dedicated gaming GPUs. Additionally, its screen has a refresh rate of 60Hz, which is standard for most laptops but lower than the higher refresh rates preferred for smooth gaming experiences.

The Verge

Monica Chin | May 2023
"All in all, my day on the Vivobook had its ups and downs. It is a really pretty and well-built device, and it had all of the functionality I needed to get me through my browser-based workload. But the speakers weren’t my favorite, and the battery life was just too short."
