The Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED M3500 against the competition

The Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED M3500 is currently on offer at Asus France in a package with mouse + bag and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category where it is one of the few to offer such a powerful processor (October Core) with such an accurate color display and such a large SSD storage capacity, all in such a thin and light chassis.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED M3500

With its thin and light Light Silver design with a pattern on the brand-level shell, it has an elegant and discreet appearance.

IceCool Plus technology provides cooling via 2 fans, heat pipes and vents. It also offers 3 predefined operating profiles.

This versatile multimedia-oriented laptop PC has good connectivity options including 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to, for example, a TV or monitor, Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi ac wireless modules (What a pity not to find more recent and more efficient Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi 6 ax modules!) to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port or 3 USB including 1 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) that guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.

Those who want to maintain their privacy will appreciate being able to slide a physical cover in front of the webcam.

It is of course possible to illuminate the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in low ambient light.

Do you want colors that are much more faithful than the average, with very deep blacks, wide viewing angles and very low latency? Here’s what the display here offers, which is adorned with OLED DCI-P3 specs. It also lends itself very well to displaying High Definition content such as videos thanks to its Full HD definition and 16:9 format. Nomads may find it a pity that it is glossy because it is therefore subject to reflections in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors), but the gloss offers the advantage of reviving the colors.

Performance, autonomy of the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED M3500

The Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED M3500 is for those looking for a powerful, thin and light 15-inch laptop with true-to-life colors, creatively oriented yet nomadic.

Thanks to its low weight and thinness, this laptop is just as easy to transport as an Ultrabook. It will interest nomads all the more because with light use it can last about 10 hours on battery.

This is all the more important because it is powerful thanks to its 16 GB of RAM and its AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne Octo Core processor.

In particular, thanks to this core we obtain much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad/Hexa Core, the difference is especially noticeable in work that consumes RAM and CPU resources and uses multicores, such as photo editing or video conversion. , which are interesting for creative people.

This core actually delivers overall power that can appeal to demanding users…when they don’t need high graphics performance.

Because in order to preserve autonomy and limit heating, there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. Players will therefore have their way, except those who are satisfied with light games that can support the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated in Ryzen 7, while of course you can view photos and videos.

To ensure the best possible autonomy with controlled heating and good fluidity, Asus logically integrates here a SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that can compete with what drives offer in this area.

As a reminder, an SSD is more energy efficient than a hard drive, quiet, more resistant to shocks and much faster.

In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better response than a hard disk, implying, for example, much faster processing, as well as starting and launching software, or even faster arrival on online game cards.

Finally, in the event of severe stress (example: processing), this versatile multimedia creation-oriented PC is audible and warm.

To keep temperatures in check, a ventilated support can be used if necessary (remember to check the dimensions carefully!
