Sometimes people buy laptops for its trendy or sleek looks. A lot of times, however, a bigger concern is value. Today, there's a sleek Asus laptop on Amazon that covers both of those bases.

The VivoBook features a 15.6-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Core i5-8250U processor, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. It also has a fingerprint reader, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, one USB Type-C port, one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, one HDMI, and an SD card reader.

The display features a "NanoEdge" ultra-narrow bezel that measures just 0.30-inch. That fits a 15.6-inch display into a 14-inch laptop frame, according to Asus, improving the laptop's portability. The VivoBook measures 0.8 of an inch and weighs in at 3.7 pounds.
