Wow the price is a lot lower than last year's Vivobook 2-in-1 laptop offer/promo from Amazon. I paid around $730 for the same specs and only difference is the CPU is a Ryzen 4700.

I recommended it at the time and after accidentally dropping it once I would advise looking elsewhere for a more durable 2-in-1 laptop such as ZenBook line. Even before the accidental drop, I noticed whenever I converted the laptop into a tablet or left it as a tent, the hinges would creak a bit. It was quite annoying. When the laptop is rested as a traditional laptop, the hinges extend outward and act as the support. The hinges haven't completely broken and am able to still use the laptop however going to have ASUS try to repair it as it is still under warranty.

I like the coating finish on the laptop as it feels like a premium laptop but durable it is not. The speaker sound quality and audio jack quality are great. The speaker quality are definitely a plus and do not sound muddled tinny at the slightest. You can definitely plug in your headphones and enjoy music-streaming while working or online conferencing. The keyboard can at time feel quite spongy, I will admit that but it a step up from having owned the Lenovo Flex 2-in-1. I really hated the laptop's build quality and found it's touchpad and the surfaces of the laptop to be prone to fingerprint smudges sometimes. The Flex keyboard felt small and a bit cramped at times but it felt decent.

The touchpad is rightfully sized on the Vivobook. The fan vents are on the left side of the laptop which is a plus especially if you're going to be using it in a tent position or as a tablet as the air flow will not be blocked. As someone who only uses the Vivobook for coding and multitask very often, the laptop never felt warm from the keyboard side and from the back either. The OS and consistent updates from both MyAsus and Windows ways maintained a smooth and.bug-free experience. Had no issues connecting a Bluetooth device such as my wireless headphones. Had not experienced any sudden disconnects or loss of audio. Worked right out of the box.

And that is my feedback on the Vivobook. I have included a link below of the very laptop that I am currently using and purchased from Amazon.

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/...asin_title

if the Vivobook 2-in-1 from Walmart is the same model as the Amazon one only with an upgraded CPU, then you can upgrade the RAM by replacing one of the RAM sticks with a 16GB. If I remember correctly one of the RAM sticks (4GB) us soldered and the other RAM stick can be removed and upgraded. No clue if a 32GB RAM stick will work. Disregard if the model sold by Walmart does not feature upgradable RAM.

Cheers!
Now that you mention it…

JK… Maybe people are sick of typing the same thing over and over about these crappy laptops and their components… Let people buy and see for themselves.
Are you going to post that same worng statement in every Ryzen Lucienne thread? AMD Vega 7 is also present in the Zen 3 based Ryzen 5 5600U, you know that right? And Lucienne is unofficially called Zen 2+, it has a lot of improvements over last year's Renoir and it performs better than Ryzen 5 4600U slightly, despite having same core and threads and running at same clock speed.
And your statement about 8GB ram is just good for browsing, is so lame and idiotic, just like every post of yours. Not everyone going to run huge code compilation or video editing with 10 complex layers. 8GB is perfectly fine for all day to day tasks, including browsing, streaming, some basic photo and video editing, documentation a lot of other things. Don't post your not so imaginative ideas that 8GB is just sufficient for web browsing. And regarding weight, do you have any 2-in-1 in mind which weights less than 3 lbs at this price? Even far costlier Yoga 7i and 9i weight around 3.1 lbs.

Didn't recall much complaining about the Motile(walmart brand) 240 nit 1080p screen. This should be about the same, no?

This is the third or fourth post for the same deal in the past two weeks. Some in-store prices are even $499.

I bought this last week (or week before?) for the same price and returned it. The screen is terrible and I'm usually not picky about a device that's mainly going to be used for web browsing. Colors were off, poor contrast, and not sharp, could barely make out the text. At first, I thought it was my old age eyes failing me, but others had similar issues trying to read on it.

Its got several problems, 5500u is old Zen 2 with vega 7, 256gb and 8gb means unless you use this as browser youre going to be replacing the SSD and ram, and while its a 2in1 3.3lbs is heavy for tablet mode, an ipad is 1lb, a surface pro is 1.7lbs, and many 2in1's without removable keyboards fall under 3lbs. and the 250nit screen.

Its not going to be terrible, the price is fair, but its far from a great product or deal

The most common complaint i've seen for Vivobooks in their reviews is that the hinge breaks easily.

Just so you know, the completely uncalled-for insult flinging (and insult quality level) makes you sound like a 4th grader.
If you say idiotic things, it is fair to be called idiotic.

none of those are problems at this price range.

-cpu is perfectly capable with a decent igpu. zen 2 doesn't automatically make it some outdated garbage.
-256gb ssd / 8gb ram are perfectly fine for the vast majority that will use this as an everyday laptop. if you're buying this to either do professional work or as your main gaming pc, you're gonna have a bad time.
-comparing a laptop's weight to a tablet's makes no sense. it might have a tablet mode, but it's primarily a laptop. if you need a tablet, get a tablet.
-250 nits are perfectly fine for indoor use, just don't sit against a window. it's a common level of brightness for this price range, and acceptable as long as you're not trying to use it outside under the sun.

How is the built quality of these cheap asus? Anyone has experience with that? My 2010 Sony vaio lasted till 2020. Can I expect 5, 6 years out of these?
