Review Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T Ultrabook

 

Sleek meets mainstream. With the 15.6-inch Vivobook V551LB, Asus

Appealing design, fit and finish; Excellent contrast ratio; Long battery life; Remains cool even under load; 24-month warranty

Fairly heavy; Conventional hard drive; Average brightness quite low; No keyboard backlight; Expensive

On the other hand, the V551LB is quite heavy and large for an Ultrabook, so we have to ask ourselves if we would be inclined to lug it around or opt for a smaller 13.3-inch or 14-inch system instead. One of our main points of criticism is the screen...

With the Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T, you get approximately the look and feel of the higher-end Asus Zenbook UX51VZ-DH71 , but for a lot less money.

The Asus VivoBook V551L is a thin, attractive, and seemingly well-constructed laptop. Its midrange discrete graphics card and 4th-gen Core i7 processor give it overall very good performance and battery life. And it has a 1TB hard drive and DVD burner.

For the V551LB's near-$1,000 price, the screen is pretty disappointing, as is its slow-spinning hard drive. Also, its keyboard is not backlit, which, again, for the price it should have.

An attractive, solidly built 15.6-inch thin laptop with overall good performance, the Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T is held back by its lackluster display.

Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T Review

 

Since Intel began pushing the Ultrabook form factor back in 2012, standard laptop designs have mostly diverged into two camps. On one side, you have the ultra-slim, premium machines, like Acer's S7, which usually ditch the optical drive in favor of...

Very impressive battery life, especially under heavy load ; Solid-feeling, nice-looking design ; Runs quiet and cool ; Better gaming performance than most Ultrabooks

Sub-par, low-resolution display ; No solid-state storage ; Keyboard is not backlit ; Quiet speakers ; Not a great value

Asus’s VivoBook V551LB may look pretty, but with battery life that’s as impressive as its screen is disappointing, and no solid-state storage, this Ultrabook feels more than a little unbalanced, especially considering its high price.

The Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T desktop replacement laptop is deceptively sleek and slim, offering category leading performance and battery life that will carry you through the day.

Intel Core i7-4500U processor and Nvidia GeForce GT740 graphics for category leading performance. Impressive battery life. Touch screen

Low resolution display. Too heavy for easy portability

In recent months we've seen plenty of slim laptops and ultrabooks adding Windows 8 and touch to the portability and performance that ultraportables are known for. While the Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T may look like more of the same at first glance, it...
