  1. Smaller display wasn't a possibility as getting a larger display was the main reason behind buying a new laptop for my friend. Also being light weight was an important issue. Bought the Intel Asus VivoBook F510UA as the AMD version went out of stock in Newegg a few hours before buying. Thanks for your suggestions anyway.
  2. Why? Is there anything better under 550$? Buying from USA. Should be light-weight as those two. Display size at least 15.6", battery life no specific preference, but obviously the more the better. Budget is 500-550$.
  3. Thanks for your reply. Not only is the Newegg site misleading, so is the official Asus site (1 TB SSHD on title, 256 GB SSD on description). That along with complete lack of review and discussion on it by pro reviewers or common people made me very skeptic. So I'm not missing out on something right? They're equivalent and the AMD one seems to be just going under the radar?
  4. Hello guys, I see the Asus VivoBook F510UA get regularly recommended in different forums in 500-599$ price range.But I can't see the AMD version of it recommended or discussed anywhere. I can't even find any reviews online. As I see the main different is the CPU (i5 8250u vs Ryzen 5 2500u) which performs roughly equivalently as I read multiple reviews. And the AMD laptop has 256 GB SSD instead of 1 TB HDD of the Intel one. The other specifications (even the design) seems pretty equal. Shouldn't it be a good buy? Or am I missing something?? Pls give your opinion as I plan to buy it today on cyber Monday (a few hours left) P.S. There are also some major confusions. The title in the Asus page says it has 1TB SSHD, but the specs below (and newegg page) shows 256 GB SSD !! Also the newegg page title shows the processor is dual-core. But the specs below shows quad-core. Also R5 2500u is quad-core as I see online. It's all getting so confusing. Pls help me with the right information and opinion. Thanks.
  5. ViewSonic VX3209-2K. We have this monitor at a pretty reasonable price(for a 1440p, 8-bit+FRC panel) in where I live. However because this monitor was released in Australia, Asia mainly I cannot find any technical review of it online except here: http://playwares.com/dpreview/52352066 Even after Google Chrome translation, the review isn't being particularly helpful for me. And the charts/figures themselves are not translated. So if you guys can understand the language and/or the graphs, give me a basic understanding of in terms of overall image quality and input lag(gaming will be one of my priority) and if it has any glaring flaws. P.S. Don't suggest me any other monitor at similar price/specifications. Because I don't live in the USA and it's not possible to buy any product I want at amazon price. This is currently the only viable 2k monitor within my price range. Thanks.
  6. Thanks for your feedback. Now if anyone could enlighten me on the aggressive anti-glare coating on the Dell U2711...
  7. Ok you guys had almost convinced me to go for the Dell one. But after researching a bit on that particular UltraSharp U2711 model, I've found out it was infamous for its "aggressive" anti-glare coating which caused grainy images. You'll see quite a lot of discussions/ forum threads on different tech sites regarding the issue if you google it. Now it could be that the problem is remarkable only when the monitor was compared to other similar high-end(700-1000$) monitors used for professional and video editing and it would still be a huge improvement over a relatively lower end consumer-grade monitor. Or is it that the problem might also be evident to a normal consumer used to using a consumer-grade 200-300$ monitor?? Maybe anybody with hands-on experience with the Dell monitor would be able to give the 'best' answer...
  8. Hmm... got you. Dell seems to be the more logical choice. So monitor image quality doesn't degrade gradually over the years?
  9. Thanks for your feedback. Another thing that's bugging me is my 24" Samsung has freesync(I used AMD card). Though a modest 48-72HZ range but still the monitors I'm considering don't have that. Though the Asus one can be OCed to around 74Hz as I read but no freesync.
  10. Ok. Just wanted to be sure if you had the disadvantages in your mind while recommending it.
  11. Considering it's a 7+ years old model and used around 4 years and the seller himself bought it 2nd-hand and I also get no warranty?
  12. Good point. also can you answer to another question I asked: Is there anything special about native resolution? I mean, everything others being equal, will a 1440p monitor displaying @1080p look worse than a 1080p monitor displaying @1080p??
  13. Yes. But I won't be test them both hands-on. I can only test the one I wanna take. You can't go over to someone's house, check his monitor quality, then go to 2nd person's house, check his monitor quality and then go to the 1st person's house again if the 1st one is better! Hope you understand. So I need to be sure which one I wanna buy. What I can check there is if the monitor has some kinda problem like scratch or whatever.
  14. No, I don't live in USA. But I'll be checking it for sure before buying. Video on what?
