The ASUS VivoBook M580VD-EB76 15.6-inch gaming laptop has received positive reviews for its powerful Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor that’s backed by 16GB DDR4 RAM, its decent GeForce GTX 1050 4GB  NVIDIA graphics card and its fast 250GB SSD. Furthermore, it is solidly built, and it can easily double up as a working laptop thanks to its sleek, portable design. Lastly, its sound quality is said to be good for a laptop. However, some criticism was directed towards its cooling, with some finding that it runs hot when carrying out heavy tasks or when gaming. The screen is a TN display, meaning the colors can look washed out depending on your viewing angles and the battery life is poor. Lastly, the additional 1TB HDD is a 5400RPM mechanical hard drive, which is slow.


The ASUS VivoBook M580VD-EB76 is a rather unassuming gaming laptop. It has a premium look, much like its the ZenBook line, and therefore looks like it could be geared more towards work than gaming.

The sleek, stylish ASUS VivoBook M580VD-EB76 flexes a powerful Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor, which is backed by 16GB DDR4 RAM. It has a dedicated Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU that runs most modern day AAA games and easily runs high demand photo and video editing software. It features a matte 1080p FHD screen with 100% sRGB color gamut, but it is a TN-based display, and not IPS, meaning that one’s viewing angles will be average. The battery life is said to last around 4-5 hours, and while ASUS says the VivoBook M580VD-EB76 has an intelligent cooling system, it is reported to run hot during high-load multitasking and gaming sessions.

Measuring in at 0.8 X 15 X 10 inches, and with a weight of 5.1 pounds, it weighs close to what the Macbook Pros and the Dell XPS 15 touch weigh, and therefore makes it practical in terms of portability. At the bottom of the ASUS VivoBook M580VD-EB76 are two speakers that drive out good audio for a laptop, with one user even suggesting that it pushes some decent bass. It features chiclet-style keys and the USB 3.1 Type-C port allows for super fast transfer speeds and will also allow for users to connect a Thunderbolt compatible display. The SSD is fast and has 256GB of storage space, while the slower, 5400RPM mechanical hard drive has 1TB of storage space.

    The Asus VivoBook Pro is a less-pricey laptop for pros, but it can't hide its cut corners.
