[Specs and Info] ASUS VivoBook 15 (F1500/X1500) – ASUS has to get the price right

Usually, ASUS is pretty quick when it comes to adopting new hardware. They have been pretty quick at getting their gaming devices up to speed, implementing Alder Lake in their TUF and ROG laptops. However, the business and other sectors are lacking behind. As for evidence, we have the VivoBook 15 (X1500), which despite being released in 2022, still uses Tiger Lake hardware. This means that pricing will be pivotal, as new notebooks with Alder Lake will be dropping like it’s hot, which will make Tiger Lake variants more unappealing unless there is good value.

Today we’re giving you a quick overview of the ASUS VivoBook 15 (F1500/X1500).

ASUS VivoBook 15 (F1500/X1500): Full Specs


The laptop is made out of plastic, but ASUS has implemented features in order to help the durability. For example, there is a metal brace on the inside, just below the keyboard, which should help it massively with eliminating any sort of deck flex.

In terms of portability, the device weighs only 1.80 kg and has a profile of 19.9 mm. The design of the laptop is pretty standard, offering a lid lever mechanism, an anodized finish on the lid, and tastefully placed branding.


The display selection includes a Full HD TN panel, which we would advise you to skip, along with a Full HD IPS panel with a 250 nit max brightness and a wide viewing angle.

Specifications and features

There are four CPU choices, all using Tiger Lake. The most budget offering is the dual-core Pentium Gold 7505, which has very similar specs to the Core i3-1115G4. Next, there are the Core i5-1135G7 and the Core i7-1165G7, which are well known by now. For graphics, there are the integrated Iris versions, which will do well for daily use and some office work. There’s also the MX 330 from NVIDIA, which delivers similar performance to the iGPUs and can be considered a waste of money.

The laptop has a pretty old-school storage configuration, offering both an SSD and space for a hard drive. Also, It has made sure that the HDD stays safe, placing something called an E-A-R HDD shock dampener, which is a special bracket. This is important since hard drives do have moving and spinning parts, so there will be action inside the device.
