Asus has launched yet another laptop in the affordable category with the Asus Vivobook X507. The Vivobook X507 offers basic features coupled with some style such as the new 15.6-inch 'Nanoedge' display. The X507 display will come in both Full HD and HD resolutions. Priced at Rs 21,990, the Asus Vivobook X507 is currently available for sale at Paytm Mall, with a cashback of Rs 2,000.
The Vivobook X507 is part of a slew of devices that Asus is launching exclusively on Paytm Mall, thanks to their new partnership.
Apart from the 15.6-inch display, the Vivobook X507 runs an Intel Core i3 processor under its hood, with a RAM that's configurable up to 8GB DDR4. It also offers a 1TB onboard storage along with an SSD slot that can be expanded up to 256 GB. The Vivobook X507 also comes with a fingerprint sensor, but how responsive it is, is yet to be seen.
Although aimed at luring middle income consumers, the Asus Vivobook X507 comes with Wi-Fi 802.11bgn, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio jack and a micro SD card reader.
The Vivobook X507 comes with a 33WHr battery with fast charging which Asus claims can charge up to 60 per cent in just 49 minutes. The X507 misses out on the Type-C port, which is something that has become a standard across laptops.
Asus has multiple variants of the X507 at different prices. The Vivobook X507 variant with Intel N5000 quad-core processor costs Rs 24,990, while the Vivobook X507 with 6th generation Intel Core i3 with a 4GB RAM is priced at Rs 27,990. There is another 6GB version which costs Rs 31,990. The most expensive of the Asus Vivobook X507 variants will cost you Rs 38,990 and will offer an 8GB RAM with Intel Core i3 and Nvidia GeForce MX110 GPU.
Asus' partnership with Paytm Mall will see Paytm PoS machines installed across Asus and its partner stores. The partnership is said to help both Asus and Paytm offer a unified solution to sell their products both online ans well as offline.
The Asus Vivobook X507 does deliver on some of the essentials such as that of being a budget laptop. It will be a direct competitor to the the Dell budget laptops and will be a handy tool for college going students. Given the specifications, the Asus Vivobook X507 will meet most multimedia demands, but given the limitations, it will be interesting to see how well the X507 fares as far as longevity is concerned.
