I am thinking buying an ASUS zenbook/Vivibook.I works 5-6 hours a day and laptop should lasts about 4-5 years. People didn't recommend me to buy asus and they told me it would generate good heat during work , they prefer me to buy GAMING laptop.What should i do ?


Laptop specifications should be:

Intel core i5(8th gen)
8GB RAM DDR4
NVIDIA GEFORCE 1050(min)
512GB HDD(MIN) 128GB SSD
15.6 INCH FHD

I don't do a lot of graphic design, but the University of Nebraska listed these as the minimum specs for a graphic design student:

Studio Art: Graphic Design
Hardware Specification for Mac/Windows

CPU: Intel Core i5 or i7
Display: 15 in., 1440 x 900 pixels, minimum
RAM: 8 GB minimum; more is better. (RAM in Apple MacBook Air and Retina models cannot be upgraded later.)
Video Card: A discrete video card with dedicated RAM
Storage: 500GB minimum
Optical Drive: (optional) DVD +/- R/RW

So pretty much exactly what you listed before. I think I would probably go with this one because it is more future proof. The extra threads will help, it has a dedicated gpu, plenty of storage, and it has 16Gb ram: https://www.amazon.com/VivoBook-i7-7700HQ-Processor-GeForce-keyboard/dp/B071ZL3996?ascsubtag=s1530541961858tr5ma52421&SubscriptionId=AKIAJQXDQRH6HAYWR4NA&tag=52421_iceleadscom-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B071ZL3996&th=1

The cheaper solution that would also work is this model, but it only has 256Gb of storage (you might need to buy an external hard drive), 8Gb ram, and 4 cpu threads instead of 8: https://www.amazon.com/VivoBook-i7-7700HQ-Processor-GeForce-keyboard/dp/B072C7TNBZ?ascsubtag=s1530541961858tr5ma52421&SubscriptionId=AKIAJQXDQRH6HAYWR4NA&tag=52421_iceleadscom-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B071ZL3996&th=1

What kind of work do you use it for? It depends on that and the amount you are looking to spend. None of the zenbooks models have the 1050 you were looking for, and only some of the vivobooks have them. Most just use the integrated graphics.

Can you please suggest me the special requirement for my desireable laptop?
