These days, lightness is a key factor while choosing laptops for everyday usage. Factors such as performance, display and build quality take a backseat for most consumers but a modern-day laptop has to be light and offer enough battery life to last through an entire day. Hence, for less than Rs 60,000, you can find some great laptops that try to be as light as possible without compromising much on the other parameters.
Asus is one of these brands that keep on offering lightweight ultrabooks at affordable prices while keeping in mind all the other parameters. And it’s recently launched Asus VivoBook 14 X403 is a perfect example of that. Priced at Rs 54,990, the X403 seems to be another promising laptop with nothing special on paper. However, in the real world, it’s quite a different story altogether when I spent a couple of days with it as my primary laptop.
Looks modern and feels tough
As a laptop maker, there’s nothing much you can do to a laptop’s design, apart from making slight changes to keyboard layout and reduce screen bezels. The VivoBook 14 X403 shows that idea as it reuses the same design we have seen on some previous Asus Vivobook models. And that’s not bad by any means given that Asus ultrabooks are some of the most practical laptops to live with on a daily basis.
