Previously, I myself used the ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412UA daily main notebook which has a 14-inch IPS screen. When I use this notebook, the screen is noticeably brighter and the colour saturation is higher than my main notebook.

After a long time of use, I became akistomed to the keyboard tata letak of the ASUS VivoBook Ultra 15 OLED K513 so that I can press the Enter and Backspace keys correctly without touching the Numpad keys.
Actually, I don’t really need the Numpad button itself, but it is suitable for users whose daily work is playing with numbers such as accountants, data analysts, and many more.
The keyboard on this notebook is also equipped with a white backlit light with three brightness levels so that it allows me to jenis even in dim or dark conditions.
Unfortunately ASUS still presents the Power button in the upper corner that is integrated with the keyboard so I have to be careful when revisi a dokumen so that it doesn’t press and suddenly put the piranti into Sleep gaya.
While the touchpad that is present on the VivoBook Ultra 15 OLED K513 has a wide surface so it is comfortable to use in daily routines. This touchpad also supports finger gesture fiturs that make it easier for me to perform several functions such as zooming in or out, scrolling, and others.

For that, you should increase the capacity in the M.2 2280 PCIe 3.0×2 slots or the SATA SSD slots so that you can have a wider penyimpanan capacity.
Even though it is equipped with an HD (720p) resolution webcam, the video results are not very good and there is a lot of noise. In other words, it is necessary to install an eksternal webcam from a third party that has better quality so that the video konferensi process runs smoothly.
