ASUS VivoBook X540LA-SI30205P 15.6-inch

The ASUS VivoBook X540LA-SI30205P is a bestselling 15.6-inch budget laptop that has been praised for its crisp display, its snappy Intel i3 processor and for its 1TB hard drive. But the hardware is more suited to basic computing tasks such as web browsing, emailing and Skype, as it only has 4GB of RAM. We recommend upgrading the RAM to 8GB to improve its performance.

Pros

  • Value for money
  • B&O designed audio
  • USB 3.1 Type-C
  • Ample storage space

Cons

  • Only 4GB of RAM
  • Older Intel processor
  • Average battery life
  • Only 2 full size USB ports

Bottom Line

The ASUS X540LA-SI30205P is a budget friendly laptop that offers great value for your money, but the 4GB of installed RAM might leave it feeling sluggish when it comes to multitasking.
