The ASUS Vivobook 15X offers better performance with its AMD Ryzen processor and integrated Vega graphics, making it suitable for more demanding tasks and casual gaming. It also has a higher-resolution 1920x1080 display for sharper images. If battery life is a priority, you may lean towards the Maypug 15" Laptop, which has a longer-lasting battery. However, the Maypug uses an Intel Celeron processor with Intel UHD Graphics, which is less powerful, and it features a lower resolution 1366x768 display. The Vivobook's build quality and overall user experience will likely be superior, but if your tasks are light, such as web browsing and document editing, and you're seeking longer battery life, the Maypug could save you money in the long run due to its energy-efficient components.

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."
