Reviews for the Asus Vivobook 15 M1505YA
Asus Vivobook 15 OLED M1505
Source: Tech Smart
At a decent R17 000, the ASUS Vivobook 15 OLED M1505’s main selling point is its excellent 15” OLED display, which makes working on this simply great. The lightweight body (1.7 kg) might be plastic but it’s stylish (and a fingerprint magnet tbh), the keyboard is great for typing, and it comes with a battery life that will last you through the worst of stage 6. While the sound might be middling, there’s very little performance wise that distracts from the Vivobook 15 OLED M1505 being a winning notebook. However, Asus does not make things easy, since the model below this, with a Ryzen 5 processor and 8 GB of RAM, goes for R4k less – a very tempting proposition if you are looking to save some bucks.
