Large and loud, the VivoBook Max is a 15.6" notebook from Asus that's designed to keep entry-level users happy.
PROS
Surprisingly solid processor performance; Well priced; Large and bright display; Good battery life
CONS
Heavy at 2kg; Difficult to carry around; Typing experience erratic
VERDICT
For R4 600 you get what you pay for in the Asus VivoBook Max (X541SA), which is a large entry-level notebook that ticks all the necessary boxes that users aiming to do a handful of tasks are looking for. At 15.6" and 2 kg (with battery), it's not on the svelte side, which means university students will likely shy away from it. If, however, you're looking for a basic family notebook, or do simple things like web browsing for projects, it's more than up to the task.
