Good, beautiful laptops for less than 600 Euros

Integrate this laptop 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM, which is little. Really less than 8 GB today is an understatement, but hey, for work, surfing and studying, it may be fine. Storage isn’t the brightest either, boasting 128 GB eMMC memory, which is also very fair. There are two points where it is weak.

We are talking about a simple 14-inch screen laptop with 1080p resolution, without more. It offers us connectivity Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, which is not bad. Regarding the rest of connectivity, it has one USB-C, one USB-A 2.0a micro SD card reader and a headphone jack.

It can be a good solution to work remotely if we are going to use Office or similar tools. It can even be a good gift for kids who are studying ESO or Baccalaureate. Sure, it costs very little money, we can’t demand much for the price either.

As an alternative, somewhat more expensive, but also light and quite portable, we have this Microsoft system. It is true that Surface systems in Spain have not been very well received, since we tend to prefer more consolidated brands.

This Microsoft system is characterized by having a 12.4 inch screen with a resolution of 1536×1024 pixels. I must say that when we start with weird resolutions like this, I already seem distant. currently something less than 1080p resolution, I think it doesn’t make much sense.

This system has a Intel Core i5-1035G1 processor which has 4 cores and 8 threads. This processor works at a base frequency of 1 GHz and can reach 3.6 GHz in Boost mode. It integrates Intel UHD discrete graphics, to display images and little else. It is not a bad processor, but of course, it is designed for great autonomy of the system and it is that this Microsoft Surface offers us up to 13 hours of autonomy.

Perhaps the greatest strengths of this system is that it has 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a 128 GB SSD. Although in terms of storage it is very fair, it integrates 8 GB of RAM, double that of the previous system. Regarding connectivity, it offers Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0as well as one USB-C, one USB-A and a headphone jack.

I don’t like the resolution at all and that it only has 128 GB of capacity. I think it has a much better processor than the rest of the features of this laptop. In addition, here we pay for the logo, the same as in Apple systems. For me, there are better options for a similar price.

ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED K513EA

So far we have seen two laptops on sale, which for me every day, I would not acquire. Although they have their market and they are not bad solutions, in several points, key for me, they are lame a lot. The one that I would buy is this ASUS VivoBookfor fully meeting all the minimums, being from an excellent brand such as ASUS and for having very good features.

The first thing I like is the screenthat is of 15.6 inches with a 1080p resolution. This screen is characterized by being OLED type with a typical brightness of 400 nits and offers a 60 Hz refresh rate with a response time of 0.2 ms.

It has a processor Intel Core i5-1135G7 which has 4 cores and 8 threads. Said processor works at a frequency of 2.4 GHz and in Boost mode it reaches up to 4.2 GHz. This processor integrates a Iris Xe graphic that works at a maximum frequency of 1.3 GHz. The truth is that I really like the Core-G7 (and G5) family of processors, I consider that they are very powerful processors with very tight consumption.

This laptop has 12 GB SODIMM RAM, of which 8 GB are in a module and 4 GB are soldered. I don’t like soldering RAM as it makes it harder (or impossible) to expand the system but hey, the amount of memory is optimal. Regarding storage, it has a 512 GB capacity M.2 PCIe 3.0 SSD, which is more than enough.

Connectivity, one of the most critical points of any laptop, passes with flying colors. Offers Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, which is usual. Also has one USB-A 3.2 Gen1, one USB-C 3.2 Gen1, two USB-A 2.0, one HDMI 1.4 and headphone jack.

Although it is intended for professionals, personally I would buy it, since it is the best of the three. Powerful processor, plenty of storage, and while I don’t like the soldered-in RAM, it does have 12GB, which is a pretty good amount.
