ASUS’ VivoBook Pro 15 is not one of its ROG-branded gaming notebooks but it still packs the necessary hardware for light gaming but combines it with the sleek look and portability of an ultrabook.
The o.8″-thick and 5.1 lbs heavy aluminum unibody chassis is home to either the mid-range Intel Core i5-7300HQ or the higher end Intel Core i7-7700HQ as well as a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory. This is backed by either 8 or 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and 256 GB of fast M.2 SSD. The VivoBook Pro 15 features a 15.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080p) display with 100% sRGB coverage and wide 178 degrees viewing angles. You also get an ergonomic backlit keyboard with 1.4 mm key travel and Harman/Kardon-certified audio system.
The ASUS VivoBook Pro 15 starts at $799.00 for the Core i5-7300HQ version and goes up to $999.00 for the Core i7-7700HQ model.

For most users, the Core i5-7300HQ model will be more than enough but the Core i7-7700HQ configuration has some additional perks like 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB HDD in addition to the 256 GB SSD.
