The ASUS VivoBook K501UX-FI277T laptop is a superior laptop with a big 15,6 inch screen that has 4K resolution and IPS panel.
It is a good alternative to Transformer notebooks because of the features an the great portability (the weight is 1.7 kg and the battery lasts about 6 hours).
If we look at the price we see that it’s not so big, but you can get it cheaper if you buy the model with i5 processor. Still, I recommend the i7-6500u model because the processor is the most important part in a PC.
This model has no backlit keyboard but I don’t think that this feature is important. There are K501UX models with back lit keyboard but the light is blue and I don’t like it.
If you buy this model from the UK or Ireland than it comes with Windows 10 and some programs (Office and antivirus), but in other countries it might come with no OS. Also, I would not advise you to install Windows 7 on it because the drivers will not work.
This Asus K501UX-FI277T laptop can be used for gaming because of the GTX 950 graphics card, but it’s more a multimedia PC (for 4K movies, Photoshop, video editing etc).
It comes with good storage because it has an SSD with 256 GB of space. This component is responsible for storage and for acceleration.
I’m impressed with the portability of this PC because the battery lasts about 6 ours and the item weight is about 1.7 kilogram. We could say that it’s an ultrabook.
On the ports side it has 4 USBs arranged so that they don’t get in the way.
As you may have guessed, this model does not come with optical drive, but you don’t need it. You can install programs from USB or the Internet.
The ASUS VivoBook K501UX-FI277T is a laptop for those who want a premium laptop at a good price. It has only the features you might need and because of that the price is so low.
