Amusement

I got a new laptop!

I went to the IT show at Suntec City, saw my friend Eunice, oh and also got a new laptop!

ASUS Vivobook Pro N580V – DM060T (SGD$1565)

This was my main criterion: $1.5k, video-editing and gaming capabilities, less than 2kg.  

Now, here’s the kicker, only after I got it, i started googling it on the internet. To my surprise, I could barely find anything about it. What I could find most prominently though, was pertaining to this laptop: ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 N580VD, which is a new product on the market. Apparently, my laptop is the less impressive version, what it lacks compared to the newer one is 4K display, Octane memory and a fingerprint sensor. Despite its shortcomings, the specifications are still pretty solid for a laptop this price, I’ll add in the full specs at the end of the post.

Odd factoid, this is only available in Asian markets (not good enough for the American markets i guess). A search in amazon for this product will render zero results.
