ASUS M580VD-EB76 i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD + SSD Powerful Combo
The i7 version ASUS M580VD-EB76 has a quad-core 2.8GHz i7-7700HQ CPU, and 16GB of RAM. The combination with 1TB HDD, and a 256 GB M.2 SATA3 SSD is an advantage. Which makes the laptop turns on fast, really fast. It does not have Intel’s latest option memory technology.
From my experience, if you have a laptop that has a super fast booting time, you would not have to shutting down your device often. Because to turn your device back on again takes probably the same amount of time as waking your device up from the sleep mode. Keep in mind, this would support the SSD SATA 3 only.
The RAM speed on this device is 2400 MHz, and it is a 16GB of DDR4 RAM. The capacity of RAM max capacity is 16GB.
This 2017 ASUS VivoBook features a more than adequate amount of power with no noise. In an idle state, you should not hear noise from the fan RPM, it should be low. The more loaded the CPU or GPU the fan’s RPM will work more accordingly.
