Asus VivoBook X542BA-DH99 is a Vivobook 15 laptop from the current year and it is different from other models because it has AMD tech integrated. The processor is an A9 dual core and the (integrated) graphics is R5. Such a laptop is for office and multimedia use. The processor is equivalent to an Pentium quad core or an i3, and the graphics card is almost as good as a discrete one.
It has a good price. As you can see from the below image, this laptop looks great. It has the design of the X542 series which is a comercial and modern one.
The screen is a 15.6 inch one with HD resolution and many features that enhance the image. Such a tech is Asus Splendid and fot those interested in blue light filtering there is Eye Care.
The connection to the Internet can be wired or wireless. The second way is better and a thing that you should know it that the laptop has wireless ac (dual band).
On the storage and RAM side this laptop has a big 1TB hard drive and 8GB of RAM.
Something unique is that this model has an ODD drive. This could help you install another OS. The pre-installed one is Windows 10 and I recommend you to stick with it.
Not so good things
Resolution of this screen is not 1080p, but you can connect an external monitor to watch movies on it at a bigger size.
An SSD could have given this laptop a performance boost, and I recommend you to upgrade you laptop with such a drive if you need more speed.
For those interested in a laptop with AMD tech and good performance I recommend this Asus VivoBook X542BA-DH99. The price of this device is lower than the equivalent with Intel parts… performance being the same or even better.
With a laptop like this you won’t have problems with cooling and speed in tasks.
