  • Are these better than the i7s?

  • +11

    A reminder that 3700U is actually based on AMD 2000 series desktop chips (Zen+ architecture), 12nm process, with codename Picasso and they top out at 4 cores, 8 threads

    It is not as battery efficient as the current generation 5000 series and the cpu/gpu performance is noticeably inferior. Also notice that 2 of it's usb ports are on the older USB 2.0 standard (480mbps)

    Battery life is also not great and the display is noticeably dim with 250 nits brightness, with 45.4% on DCI-P3 color gamut test (45% NTSC). You should probably avoid this laptop and find something else with newer generation CPU, this is old stock from 2 years ago and should be priced much lower.

    • Thank you. You answered my question.

      So would you recommend this, from the previous ozbargain listing, the i7?

        all of the Vivobook X515, M515, F515 all have roughly the same weaknesses, a dull display and subpar battery life. They cheaped out on cooling and chassis and motherboard chipset. Only single DIMM slot to upgrade RAM with.
        Build quality is mediocre and they all have at least USB 2.0 ports. They also seem to retail for at least $1000 in Australia, but in the USA they can go for as cheap as $600 USD but with even worse specs, like Core i3 variants and 8GB single channel memory.

        It's not a class of laptop I would purchase for work or business, but if it's for home use, it doesn't matter as much since you will be tethered to AC power and not using it in direct sunlight, meaning the dim screen won't be an impediment to your productivity.

        If that sounds like you, it's an okay purchase.

          @scrimshaw so what would u recomend as BEST VALUE strong built laptop for work or business please. 16 GB RAM, 512 SSD and min 15.6 inches and current HDMI and storage slot etc.TIA

            @FBI: I want to know also, thanks scrim!

          • +4

            @FBI: The Dell XPS 13inch was going for $1499 however it sold out a few days ago. It normally retails for $1899.

            Macbook Air is a very strong contender if you're not constrained to using Windows software, they're reliable, lightweight and have very long battery life due to ARM chipset power efficiency.

            Also recommend looking at Dell Outlet as well and look in the Business category. Dell Precision / Dell Latitudes are what you should be looking at if you want a reliable business-grade laptop. Precisions are workstation laptops with optional Quadro GPU's while Latitudes are thinner more portable ultrabooks.

            I spotted a Latitude 14 5420 in the outlet for $1239, pretty good value if you don't mind 14 inch display.

            If buying Dells, try to avoid buying Inspiron 3000 or 5000 (they are the bottom of the barrel laptops for consumer market and build quality is hit / miss)
            if buying Lenovo's: avoid IdeaPad or Flex line (these are laptops for the value conscious home user)
            ASUS: avoid Vivobook lines, they cut every corner possible (i've already outlined them above)

            • @scrimshaw: Many many thanks for sharing your knowledge !!

    Does this have a touchscreen?

    • Doesn't seem like it with this model.

  • whats the difference betwee m515 and d515? cant seem to find comparison on net.

    M515 Ryzen 7 3700U CPU surely be not as good as D515 Ryzen 7 5700U CPU
