Comes with black thick bezel around the screen, ASUS VivoBook X751NA-DS21Q seemed so sturdy but cool and elegant. This is an affordable wide screen laptop which its price is about $499.00 when it is reviewed. Is there any compromising? Well, let’s see its performance.
ASUS VivoBook X751NA-DS21Q is one of the Asus X series. It is powered by Intel Quad-Core Pentium N4200 with a base frequency of 1.10GHz up to 2.50GHz in turbo and cache size of 2MB. The frequency should really depend on the cooling solution. Intel Pentium N4200 is usually used for netbooks or thin notebooks and suited for daily tasks such as office, browsing, as well as moderate multi-tasking.
The system memory comes with this laptop is 8GB DDR3 SDRAM soldered. It is a fixed one and owners cannot upgrade it. This amount is certainly enough to fulfill the needs of most users and will support the performance of the CPU since we know that Intel Pentium N4200 is not much powerful processor.
To install the operating system and other apps and as well to keep everything that save in it, this notebook has 1000GB 5400 RPM HDD. This HDD will be enough for most users.
The VivoBook X751NA-DS21Q is also equipped with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 505. This GPU is primarily used for netbooks or thin notebooks since it is a low consumption GPU and has a low-end segment performance. It is not enough for playing modern games even at the lowest settings.

ASUS VivoBook X751NA-DS21Q has a weight of 6.2 pounds and a dimension of 16.3 x 10.7 x 1.2 inches. Quite heavy and quite large, I think.
The power source is a 37WHrs 4S1P 4-cell Li-ion Battery Pack and there is no explanation about the battery life.
However, based on its weight and dimension, I can say that this laptop is not portable enough to take with everywhere. It is better for home/school/office use.
Overall, ASUS VivoBook X751NA-DS21Q is a common entry-level laptop. The performance is ordinary, not the best nor the worst. However, this is a wide screen laptop with an affordable price.
It is not suitable for traveling since it is quite heavy and quite large. But, It is good to be a home/school/office laptop for doing simple works and not the demanding tasks. And if you like watching videos, listening songs, browsing internet, writing or editing documents or doing other basic usage and simple tasks then this laptop is for you.
