ASUS VivoBook Go 15 OLED

The VivoBook Go is technically a basic model, but it comes upgraded with a bunch of wonderful extras for the price. ASUS has championed the use of OLED screens on laptops, including on this new model. OLED offers many advantages, like far better colour reproduction and better brightness control, and it uses less of your battery, too.

Unsurprisingly, the screen quality on the VivoBook Go was top notch, and the widescreen format adds to the pleasure, especially for movies. The keyboard has the kind of resistance and key travel that suits our harsh typing style, and the underlighting gets very bright indeed. There’s a half-sized number pad on the right hand side, which is invaluable if you are a number cruncher. We’re a fan of the fingerprint sensor built into the track pad.

This speeds up Windows logins and authentication for most online services too. Overall, this laptop feels potent and up to some serious work, as seen in the gamer-grade up-to-date mid-range AMD Ryzen 5, the generous 16 GB of RAM and the 512 GB SSD storage.
