However, the 2019 edition of VivoBook is surprisingly premium with vibrant colorful design and premium features that traditionally found on more expensive laptops. The VivoBook 14 and 15 Series (X412 / X512) comes with 2 display sizes – 14 and 15.6 inch respectively. Both the laptops are more compact and lightweight than its previous generation.
