ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412 and Ultra A512 launched at RM2899
ASUS has just launched their latest ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412 and Ultra A512 ultraportables. Weighing just 1.5kg for the 14″ VivoBook Ultra A412 and 1.6kg for the 15.6″ VivoBook Ultra A512, they are designed as affordable workhorses.
Now when I say its a workhorse, it doesn’t mean that it is only goo for work. The ASUS VivoBook Ultra laptops both come with a NVIDIA GeForce MX 250 dedicated GPU and Intel Core i5-8265U processors. ASUS’ latest ultraportables also come with a 512GB PCIe SSD inside, with the option to throw in a 2.5″ SATA storage drive if you need more.
Enough about the insides though. On the outside is rich color options like Peacock Blue, Coral Crush, Transparent Silver and Slate Grey. You will also probably note that these are really compact, as the tiny 5.7mm bezels around the NanoEdge display lets you enjoy a screen-to-body ratio of up to 88%. Last but not least, there’s the ErgoLift technology for a more ergonomic typing experience.
