ASUS has presented its new Vivobook Go laptops, a series for mass consumption that is distributed in two models with 14 and 15 inchesbased on the latest AMD processors, Ryzen 7000.
At 17.9mm thin and weighing just 1.3kg, the new Vivobook Go notebooks are designed to be compact enough to fit in any backpack and light enough to be moved with one hand. To ensure their durability in daily use they are tested under the latest MIL-STD-810H military grade standard. Other details to highlight are its hinge that facilitates angles of up to 180 degrees and an elegant V-shaped air outlet to facilitate cooling.
The Vivobook Go 15 (model E1504F) offers three screens to choose from up to a high-performance OLED that is not usually seen in models of this market range, with 15.6 inches diagonal, FHD native resolution, 400 nits of brightness, Pantone validated color reproduction and support for 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The Vivobook Go 14 (model E1404F) uses a 14-inch IPS panel with FHD resolution. Both are TÜV Rheinland certified to reduce annoying blue light.
Both laptops use the latest generation of AMD processors, the Ryzen 7000 Mobile with Radeon 610M GPU, 16 Gbytes of RAM and a 512 Gbyte PCIe solid state drive for storage. The connectivity section is well covered with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, and a good number of USB 3.2 ports (Type C and Type A), HDMI video output and a combo jack for audio.
They also have a 720p webcam that includes a privacy shutter, an ASUS ErgoSense keyboard, a good-sized touchpad, and an optional fingerprint sensor. To enhance the sound section, the manufacturer supports DTS Audio and includes the SonicMaster application. It has 50 or 42Wh batteries, which can be quickly charged, up to 60% of its capacity in 49 minutes.
The new Vivobook Go notebooks will be available in three color finishes, black, white and green, with Windows 11 Pro pre-installed and apps like MyASUS, which make it easy to access firmware and app updates, customer service and performance optimization. No price has been provided, but they must be marketed at a cheap price taking into account that it is a series intended for mass consumption. It won’t be long before we see them on the ASUS portal and in the retail channel.
