ASUS VivoBook V551LA-DS71T is very similar to ASUS Vivobook V551LB-DB71T in fact the only difference between the two lies in that the former does not feature a dedicated graphic while the later does. Other than that, they are practically the same laptop. So what really is a Vivobook? Vivobook are basically a breed of laptop that build on the short fall of the multimedia laptop by adding the elements of Ultrabooks. Thus, you get a laptop that is powerful and affordable as multimedia laptops and portable as Ultrabooks.
The processor featured in this ASUS VivoBook V551LA-DS71T is a core i7-4500U. The ‘U’ designation means that the power consumption of this laptop is very low – a much needed element for long battery endurance. Furthermore, this is a processor that is standard in most high end Ultrabooks. Couple the processor with an ample 8 GB of DDR 3 RAM and you get powerhouse of performance.
The stunning 15.6 touchscreen is also a great addition to this vivobook. In fact, Vivobooks are famous for their touchscreen. So a good question to be asking yourself now is: why go for a tablet when you can get a portable laptop with touchscreen and a ten fold more power in comparison?
The battery life of ASUS VivoBook V551LA-DS71T can last for 5 hours and if used wisely it can last even longer. Other features include an ample 750 GB HDD, and an optical drive. The emphasis should definitely be put on the optical drive here as it is very rare to find an optical drive on laptops with slim form factor.
Speaking of which, this laptop is 1″ at its thickest point, which makes this laptop perhaps the thinnest multimedia laptop in the market. Kudos! It weighs a standard 5.3 pounds for a 15.6 inch machine.
All in all, this is a laptop that fills the gap between Ultrabooks and Multimedia laptop. It combines the elements of both categories and presents them in a large chassis that is only 1″ thick and has a touchscreen. If you are looking to get the power of a multimedia laptop, but do not want to compromise the portability all the while maintaining an extremely economical budget range, then by all means ASUS VivoBook V551LA-DS71T and its more powerful model ASUS Vivobook V551LB-DB71T are definitely the laptops to go for.
