Review: Asus Vivobook F510UA Milled surface Power, USB 3.0, HDMI, USB-C and 3.5mm headphone ports 2 x USB 2.0 ports and SD card slot It is not possible to open screen by one hand There is only 2 small ventilation at the bottom of laptop If you want to remove the back cover, you need to remove these 10 screws. There are 2 more screws under these 2 rubbers. You need to remove rubbers, then you need remove screws behind the rubber. Let’s open laptop and enter UEFI (BIOS) by pressing F2 key I have replaced 1 TB HDD with 240 GB HDD. You can see SSD at Storage section. This linux boot loader called GRUB I have installed Ubuntu Linux 17.0, macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and Windows 10 Home Let’s boot and login to Ubuntu Linux Let’s look at the configuration of laptop’s 240 GB SSD with GParted 40 GB for macOS, 40 for Windows, rest of them for Linux Let’s look at battery stats: 42.1 Wh designed but only 40.6 Wh available to use. Capacity is only 96.5% I will make a CPU load test with OpenShot video editing software. I will monitor CPU load and listen to noise generated by CPU fan 4 cores and 8 threads nearly full utilized but I don’t hear too much fan noise And we are running on battery power, not connected to mains Still not much heat and not much fan noise Let’s look at macOS Sierra 10.12.6 macOS is booting macOS booted in 17 seconds. Thanks to SSD macOS is using 17 GB of disk. So 40 GB of partition is enough for testing macOS. Windows 10 Home is using 21 GB of disk. So 40 GB of partition is enough for small tasks for Windows 10 Home. I set resolution to 1366×768 because when I set it 1920×1080, text will be too small and unreadable I installed macOS Sierra 10.12.6. But it is also possible to install macOS High Sierra 10.13.1. But I could not installed earlier than 10.12.6. I guess eralier versions are not compatible with Kaby Lake. There are a lot of non-working components with this installation: Brightness cannot be changed and it is set to maximum. There are a lot of work to do, to get a fully working macOS Intel wifi adapter not working USB wifi dongle causes problems Keyboard is working. But trackpad is not working perfect. It is better to use a USB trackpad like this one. Let’s reboot macOS and look at Windows 10 Home Booting Windows 10 Home Booted in just 9 seconds. Thanks to SSD Let’s try to login with fingerprint. Sometimes fingerprint scanner don’t work as expected. I have to login with PIN I will try one more time This time it worked Let’s do some benchmark tests. Please note that laptop is running on battery, not connected to mains. Results compared with other CPUs Laptop is running on battery. Let’s run Cinebench R15 tests Shut down
