Improve Your Work Performance with Asus X Series Laptops

Improve Your Work Performance with Asus X Series Laptops

The New Year has finally arrived, and with it comes an opportunity to become better versions of ourselves. While many of us tend to focus on resolutions like being more kind and giving, losing weight, or spending more time to unwind and relax, it’s also important to not neglect our performance at work or at school. After all, most of our lives outside of home revolve around these spheres.

That said, exactly how do we do this? Besides clearing out distractions during office hours and adopting healthier work habits, it’s also worth checking whether the tools we use for productivity is actually helping us or hindering us from doing things more efficiently. One such tool that has become ubiquitous in this age of mobile computing is the laptop computer.

A laptop computer does everything a desktop computer can do to help us in our work or studies, whether it’s word processing, spreadsheet creation, internet browsing, photo editing, or many others. The main difference between them, naturally, is that a laptop computer is portable, allowing us to keep on working even when we’re not in our office or at school anymore. However, to optimize your productivity and efficiency, you need a machine that is well placed to meet the needs of a modern work environment.

In the interest of helping you become a better performer at work or at school this year, we’re reviewing three very formidable but also affordable laptop computers, all of which come from Asus’ esteemed X series:

  • Asus Notebook X Series 15.6-inch X510UF-BQ244T Intel Core i7-8550U
  • Asus Notebook X Series 14-inch X407UA Intel Core i3-7100U
  • Asus Vivobook X Series X407MA 14-inch (Intel Quad-Core Celeron

Robust laptop with affordable price

What if you need something that has something approximating the specs, aesthetics, and build quality of the Asus Notebook X Series 15.6-inch X510UF-BQ244T, but you’re okay with having a few corners cut in exchange for an even more affordable price tag? If so, then the Asus Notebook X Series 14-inch X407UA Intel Core i3-7100U is a good place to start.

It’s got a speedy processor, an excellent supply of both HDD storage and RAM—the former boosted with a 256 GB SSD—and it also comes with the versatile Windows 10 64-Bit OS pre-installed. As a neat bonus, it also has a bundled-in 1-month trial of Microsoft Office 365, giving you access to all the applications you need for working or studying.

Awesome looks, budget-friendly price

What exactly are you giving up by going with this laptop instead of the previous one? Well, for starters, the screen isn’t as big, having only a 14-inchdisplay as opposed to the 15.6-inch screen of the Asus Notebook X-Series X510UF-BQ244T. However, that doesn’t mean it’s inferior in terms of quality, as it’s still able to output HD graphics with minimal glare, thanks to its anti-glare display.

The battery isn’t as beefy either, only having 33WH capacity for a 3-cell lithium-ion battery. It’s still touted be a powerhouse, though, as it’s able to last three times longer than standard Li-ion batteries. It is also able to charge up to 60% in only 49 minutes.

Lastly, the X407UA isn’t as slim or as sleek as its more premium counterpart, but it still has a very attractive finish that’s quite eye-catching. Combine all this with a 1.5kg weight and built-in fingerprint security sensor, and you’ve got a lightweight device that has a very budget-friendly price point.

Asus Vivobook X Series X407MA 14-inch (Intel Quad-Core Celeron)

  • Generous 4GB DDR4 RAM for additional processing punch

  • Feather-light at 1.5 KG with 33WH-capacity 3-Cell Li-ion battery

Same award-winning quality

Another winner when it comes to specs and looks, the Asus Vivobook X Series X407MA 14-inch (Intel Quad-Core Celeron) has a lot in common with its X407UA sibling. Its processor is still quick for all your processing needs, the storage is 500GB HDD and SSD dual-style, and it comes with the 64-bit version of Windows 10 pre-installed. Similarly, the vibrant 14-inch HD Nanoedge screen and the integrated fingerprint scanning technology remains intact as well, making for a laptop that’s both great to view media on, in addition to being secure from use by non-authorized individuals. Overall, it’s still a solid and dependable device that you can rely on for your work or your studies.

Cheap and cheerful

What makes it different from the X407UA? Not a lot, exactly. Some of the more notable ones include an integrated MicroSD card reader and HDMI 1.4 external video display output. There’s also the fact that storage isn’t as beefy, only clocking in at 500GB, which is half of the 1TB that the X407UA comes with. However, the biggest selling point that we’re sure that you’ll appreciate is the fact that among the three laptops, the X407MA is the most affordable of the lot!

So, if you’re looking for something that can stand up to the previous laptops in terms of looks, build, and specs (most of the specs, anyway) while keeping within a very limited budget, then the Asus Vivobook X Series X407MA 14-inch (Intel Quad-Core Celeron) is the perfect laptop for you.
