The ASUS Vivobook Go 15 is a budget-friendly laptop with an AMD Ryzen 5 processor and AMD Radeon 610M graphics, which offers decent performance for everyday tasks like browsing and productivity applications. It comes with 512 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM, so it should handle general use well but might struggle with more intensive tasks like advanced engineering software, intense gaming, or heavy multitasking. With a 15.6-inch IPS display and a resolution of 1920 x 1080, it provides a standard viewing experience but is not optimal for high-end color work due to its limited color space coverage. The laptop is relatively light at 3.59 pounds and is fairly thin, which makes it somewhat portable. It includes multiple USB-C ports but lacks Thunderbolt connectivity. The inclusion of a full keyboard with a number pad may be beneficial for those who frequently input numbers. However, the battery life is on the lower side, offering around 7 hours of typical usage, which may require carrying a charger for longer days. It is pre-installed with Windows 11 Home and was released in March 2023. Give Feedback

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.
General Use:
3.6
The ASUS Vivobook Go 15 is equipped with a mid-range CPU and an adequate amount of RAM, which should handle general tasks with decent speed, but may not be the fastest for more demanding software applications. It has a relatively standard screen quality and battery life that supports typical usage for several hours, along with being light enough to be carried around easily, making it a fair choice for everyday activities and moderate portability.
Software Development:
3.6
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
General Use Screen Quality:
3.4
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.
Engineering & Design:
3.1
While the ASUS Vivobook Go 15 is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU and Radeon GPU, which are adequate for engineering and design work, they may struggle with more intensive tasks in these fields. The laptop's screen is a standard full HD IPS panel that provides decent color and clarity for design work, but its not top-of-the-line in terms of color accuracy and brightness, and professionals seeking high precision in color work may notice limitations.
Gaming & AI:
3.0
The ASUS Vivobook Go 15 is equipped with an AMD Radeon 610M GPU, which is not the most powerful available, potentially limiting the performance in complex gaming and 3D applications. Additionally, the screen's refresh rate caps at 60Hz, which is a standard rate but not ideal for high-frame-rate gaming that requires faster refresh rates for smoother visuals.

Josh Brown | January 2024
"The Asus Vivobook Go 15 is a good option if you’re looking for one device to tackle a bunch of smaller problems. For simple school studies, portable evening entertainment or distractions, and getting household admin or light office workloads out of the way, it’s a great little package with respectable battery life, and a great contender for the advent of cloud gaming."
