As far as I can tell according to ASUS it is Screenpad 2.0

No dedicated graphics card. I have a ASUS vivobook S15 and pretty happy with it after 2 years.

I was looking at that one as well. It looks decent but I have no expert knowledge about this machine.

Not very complicated to google "i7-10510U" as mentioned in the OP. The answer is very clear in the first hit you get.

Dumb responses on laptop/computer threads are par for the course on RFD Hot Deals.

Coming up after the break:

  • "Can this play 4K YouTube and Netflix?"
  • "How does this compare to [other laptop that costs $599]?"
  • "I have no use for these specs therefore nobody should have any use for these specs and this is a dumb buy"
  • "Is this better than a Macbook"
  • Complaints about 1080P on a 15.6" screen
  • Complaints about having bought 1 Asus nine years ago and being unhappy with it
  • "But the keyboard is bilingual!!!"
  • "Would be hot deal if 24 GB RAM and $799"

You forgot. That price error that happened many blue moons ago was a better deal than this.

Somewhat related. I'm anxiously waiting for the Asus G14 and G15 series laptops to be released in Canada. Hoping Costco carries them. They're absolute beasts.

Those would easily cost 2000+.

My answer was in response to the shear laziness of some people asking a question about the cpu without even bothering to do a google search (especially when the CPU model was clearly identified in the OP's post).

I never tried to compare to anything else. The specs are pretty good, and I never knocked this particular machine which is more than capable of handling most tasks 95% of the people out there will throw at it, short of serious gaming or high end 3D CAD use (and a few other very specific tasks) . Most people will rarely get this cpu above 50% load, in 95% of it's use.

At $1100 you may want to consider the Zenbook lineup instead. Vivobook is their midrange series, usually made from plastic while Zenbook is the premium lineup, usually made from higher grade aluminum.

At the same time, this is the higher end of the Vivobook.

If anyone was thinking about upgrading storage because they saw that the laptop has two m.2 slots, be aware that only one m.2 slot is functional. Not a deal breaker by any means (a single m.2 is standard anyways), but just a warning so no one runs into problems down the line because of it.

Source? Sounds extremely odd to have an extra slot that doesn't work by design.
