ASUS has launched its updated Windows 10 laptops — VivoBook S15 (S530) and S14 (S430). It comes in five different colours — Icicle Gold, Firmament Green, Silver Blue, Star Grey or Gun Metal.

Typing for long is more comfortable with S15 and S14, as the innovative ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts keyboard by 3.5° and recreates the familiar feeling of a desktop computer. The hinge also provides extra ventilation space, enabling more airflow around the underside of the chassis for improved cooling.

 

Both the VivoBook S15 and S14 are the first in the VivoBook Series to feature the new three-sided NanoEdge design that has even narrower bezels along the top and sides of the display. This gives S15 an 86 per cent and S14 an 84 per cent screen-to-body ratio, offering an unrivalled immersive experience in a compact package. The panels also feature wide-view technology and exceptional colour reproduction for lifelike visuals even when viewed from extreme positions.

The 15.6-inch S15 weighs only 1.8kg, while the 14-inch S14 is of 1.4kg.  They can easily slip into laptop or travel bags, even backpacks and be one’s constant companions.

Powered by up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 discrete graphics, both S15 and S14 supports easy multitasking, multimedia editing, or casual gaming. S15 and S14 has a dual-storage design. Furthermore, ASUS Wi-FI Master technology ensures faster wireless connectivity, ensuring faster and more reliable dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi connections at extreme distances. Its top speed of up to 867Mbps is 6X faster than 802.11n for seamless video-streaming, smooth web-surfing and lag-free gaming.

Enjoy a secure, one-touch access with Windows Hello, via an optional fingerprint sensor built into the touchpad. The full-sized VivoBook S15 keyboard is perfect for dim environments, ergonomically designed with a sturdy one-piece construction and 1.4mm key travel for a comfortable typing experience.

Both the S15 and S14 have the reversible USB Type-C port with the any-way-up design. USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 delivers data transfer speeds that are up to 10X faster than older USB 2.0 connections. In addition, these laptops also feature USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and a microSD card reader for hassle-free compatibility with current peripherals, displays, and projectors. 

All VivoBooks now feature a high-quality battery with all-day battery life and a lifespan that’s up to 3X-longer than standard lithium-ion batteries. Fast-charge technology ensures up to 60 per cent charge in 49 minutes. The pair is also supported by integrated ASUS Battery Health Charging technology, providing safer charging experience, decreasing the battery expansion rate during charging, thus ensuring the battery stays in good condition.
