The new VivoBook has a brushed-aluminum cover while smooth plastic is utilized on the underbelly and inside. The model we got arrived in a gaudy matte blue shade Asus is calling “Peacock Blue”.
The VivoBook highlights a smooth and meager body. When you hurl it in a sack, it’s in the same class as nonexistent; there’s under 2 kgs among charger and PC. When contrasted with past releases, there isn’t much flex on the console and wrist-rest zone. A metallic plate underneath the consoles decreases flex and gives the gadget a progressively premium feel.
The VivoBook X412F is basically a 13-inch PC with a 14-inch screen. This is one of those workstations you can whip out in a transport or vehicle to complete some work or make up for lost time with a show.

The white LEDs additionally highlight various degrees of splendor. The capacities keys likewise highlight devoted easy routes. We found the whole console experience truly fulfilling; there was positively no flex to manage while composing.

The trackpad catches are very strong with the snaps, while the sound includes a pleasant touch. It underpins Windows 10 touchpad signals including multi-motion input, so it’s anything but difficult to switch applications or screens.
Asus additionally incorporates a unique mark sensor on the upper right corner of the trackpad, which is very valuable while signing into Windows utilizing Hello.

One thing that merits referencing is that this screen is fabricated truly well; there was no recognizable light seeping around the edges. Shading generation is down-right normal, yet at this value point, there’s little you can whine about.
For sound, it gets a passage level SonicMaster sound framework with the speakers set on the underbelly. While Asus claims that SonicMaster innovation offers an encompass audio cue, we observed the speakers to be pretty inferior.

Intel’s Whisky Lake CPU and the FHD IPS board aren’t power hoards using any and all means. Gaming on the battery ought to get you around one hour of use, while performing various tasks among Chrome and MS Office got us minimal more than four hours of battery life.
The primary motivation behind why the VivoBook X412F bodes well is the cost. The 14-inch model will just slow down you Rs 33,990.
