In mid-2019, Asus introduced the latest Vivobook family. One of them is the Asus VivoBookUltra K403FA laptop. This is a series that is more targeted at the mid-range or mid-market level. Where Asus itself does differentiate the Vivobook series into several types, including the S, Pro, and Flip series.
Has a very compact body and has a very light weight, which is only 1.3 kilograms. Although the body is very compact, the VivoBook Ultra K403 still carries a 14-inch wide screen thanks to the adoption of NanoEdge Display technology. Not only that, there are various other advantages that make this laptop one of the best Asus laptops. For more details, you can see the following specifications.
The body of the Asus VivoBook Ultra K403FA laptop already uses aluminum material in all its parts. Make it sturdier and stronger. Plus the MIL-STD 810G military certificate, which was obtained after going through a series of tests such as drop test, altitude test, vibration test, high and low temperature test. As a laptop made to accompany daily activities, the Vivobook Ultra K403F is made with dimensions of 32.3 cm x 20.8 cm x 1.65 cm.
Not the thinnest, but I think it's quite ergonomic when put in a bag. With a weight of 1.3 kg without a charger and 1.45 kg with a charger, you won't mind taking it anywhere. The accuracy of the Asus design can be seen from the slope of the keyboard surface of about 2 millimeters which helps your typing comfort.

Indeed, the design is not as good as the Chromebook series, which utilizes the screen opening mechanism to make the keyboard surface more tilted. However, this conservative design is even more comfortable when the laptop is placed on an uneven surface.
Although the body is very compact, the Asus VivoBook Ultra K403 still carries a 14-inch wide screen thanks to the adoption of NanoEdge Display technology. This technology allows laptops to appear with very thin screen bezels, which are only 4.1 millimeters with a screen-to-body ratio of up to 87 percent. This laptop screen already uses the In-Plane Switching technology model, aka IPS.
The ability of contrast and color range is clearly better than the usual screen using the LCD model. In addition, with a matte screen surface, it can be more pleasing to the eye while working. Because it does not cause the effect of reflection of light from the front of the screen. Even if it is used for gaming, the brightness of the colors is noticeably less.
The first interesting feature is the fingerprint sensor. Located on the upper right side of the trackpad, the presence of this kind of security feature can be very useful for protecting the contents of the laptop. Can be combined with security using a code when signing in, of course it will be even better. You can also find HD quality cameras on the top frame of the laptop.
The quality of the lens is quite good in capturing light. With the quality of photo resolution up to 0.9 MP (1280 x 720) and 720p video 16:9 ratio 30 fps. Although the use of laptop cameras is almost rarely done, but whenever needed, the Vivobook can accommodate these needs. Almost forgotten is the presence of a backlight keyboard. We can use it when the room is in low light conditions and even dark. Only white lights are available, and that's enough and makes it more elegant. Don't expect RGB lights to be present on this kind of casual laptop.
The most highlighted performance feature of the Asus VivoBook Ultra K403FA is the battery life it has. The built-in battery with a capacity of 72 Wh 4 cell Li-Ion is claimed to be able to last up to 24 hours. Although it is not clear what size of use will be used to achieve this number. However, in the use to watch video playback, you can get a duration of about 13 hours.
