To be honest, Vivobook series from ASUS is always good looking ones especially if you compare with its competitors. And as I expected Vivobook S15 is just the same, but what amazed me is its price and its offerings…
Well, this laptop not only looks good but also feels light and is powerful for heavy workloads. For the price of about Rs.60k, it has a fair amount of specs.

Design & Display
This laptop comes with a premium design and has similar looks like the Mackbook. The metal lid is drenched in champagne color with a brushed metal finish. And then there’s the 15.6-inch nano-edge display...
The laptop feels light but not as light as the Dell XPS or the Surface Pro. It is sturdy and the hinges are quite strong. Only the lid that is made from metal, while rest of the chassis is made from hard plastic, with metallic paint on it.
The bezels are thin at 7.8mm offering an immersive viewing experience. Also, the 178 Degree Wide Viewing Angle helps you to get the FHD display with ease…
Though the color reproduction on this laptop might be good, its brightness level is a bit low. There is also a Bluelight filter mode which adds a yellow tint on the screen to reduce strain on your eyes and avoid fatigue…
Keyboard and Trackpad
The laptop features a full backlit keyboard which is very important when you work at night. The keys have good travel distance, making it easier to type even for long hours.
Beneath the keyboard lies a large trackpad that is spacious to support gestures. It has a smooth surface, and touch response is quick. In terms of gesture support, three-finger scroll up lets you switch between programs, three-finger swipe down reveals the desktop, whereas three-finger swipe left or right switches desktops.
When comes to performance, this beauty becomes a beast, to be honest. Featuring the latest 8th gen Core i5 processor, it outperforms every task smoothly.
Also, the 8GB RAM is quite enough for daily workloads and bits of editing as well. For storage, it has 1TB HDD and a 128GB SSD. And as expected the Windows is installed in the SSD…
The SSD makes Windows faster and hence all the required applications faster as well( if installed in the SSD).
Battery & Other Features
This laptop comes in with a Fast Charger which delivers up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes. Though as claimed by the company it does not lasts for 8 hours exactly. According to various uses, it can deliver near up to 6 to 7 hours or even lesser if you play games on it… It takes about 1 and half hours to charge to 100%, which is good indeed.
The dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU and Windows 10 Home OS (Creators Update) are a treat on this laptop. Also, it has a good enough audio with the Sonic Master audio technology…
On the right of the trackpad, you have a fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication. It works with Windows ‘Hello’ security login feature, and it unlocks the laptop quickly enough.
Coming to the connectivity ports, you have two USB 2.0 ports and an SD Card reader on the left. On the right side, you find a power input jack, USB 3.0 port full-size HDMI 1.4 port, a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The only disappointment in the connectivity might be the lack of thunderbolt port which could make it complete…
To end this all what I truly can say this laptop is sleek, beautiful and impressively powerful. It is just perfect for work purposes and students who need an elegant and powerful laptop.
Well, this laptop is purely made for work and home usage, so don’t expect a great gaming experience. For gaming, you always have ASUS’s ROG series.
The great visuals and the light-weight makes it perfect for portability. Also, a great charging speed makes it easy when you are traveling…
For a price of Rs.60k, it’s performance is better than many other competitors. If you ask me whether to go for a mac or this one I will tell you to go for this one… For the inclusion of SSD and latest 8th Gen Intel Core processor, it should rightly be the first choice for developers and video editors as well…
If the inbuilt hardware is not enough for you, you can always upgrade it. As this is a trending product, you will also get support from the company as well…
