Gaming & AI:
3.0
The ASUS Vivobook Go 14's performance for gaming and 3D may be poor due to its basic GPU, which is not designed for high-frame-rate 3D rendering, and the screen's limited refresh rate that is not ideal for the fast-paced visuals in gaming. Additionally, its CPU, while sufficient for everyday tasks, might not handle the demands of modern 3D games and applications.
Engineering & Design:
3.0
The ASUS Vivobook Go 14 is not ideal for engineering and design due to its limited CPU and RAM, which may struggle to handle demanding software, and an entry-level GPU that isn't cut out for intensive graphical tasks. Additionally, its screen quality is moderate with a less-than-ideal color coverage and brightness which is important for precise design work.
Keyboard Quality:
3.0
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.

Danny D'Cruze | March 2023
"The lack of a backlit keyboard in this price segment shouldn't sway the buyer the other way. However, it still comes down to user preference. The Vivobook Go 14 is a decent laptop in an extremely competitive price segment. A few omissions are a part of the balancing to reach the price segment. The Asus Vivobook Go 14 is a rare find when it comes to the price to performance ratio."
