ASUS VivoBook S14/S15: The new-normal laptop for the youth

Even with the ongoing health crisis, people still need to be productive, especially now that many are working from home. For that purpose, we need a competent laptop that can handle different productivity needs, but at the same time, stylish enough to represent different lifestyles and personalities. And it looks like the ASUS VivoBook S14/S15 has everything covered.

Immersive display for work and play

The screen is one of the essential aspects when it comes to choosing a laptop. You want something with a large enough screen but in a small footprint. The new VivoBook S14 and S15 solve that by sporting different screen sizes. The S14 has a 14-inch three-sided NanoEdge display with a 100% sRGB color gamut, a thin 5.7mm thin side bezel, and 10.8mm top bezel. That translates to an 85% screen-to-body ratio.

If you’re looking for something bigger, you can opt for the S15 with a 15.6-inch three-sided NanoEdge display, 45% NTSC, and an even thinner 5.6mm side bezel and 10.5mm top bezel. You’re also getting a better 86% screen-to-body ratio.

Both screens also boast a 178-degrees wide viewing angle, making it easier for you to share what’s on your screen with your colleagues or friends.

And when it’s time to wind down, you can play your favorite Spotify playlist, or fire up Netflix or YouTube and watch your favorite videos. You don’t have to worry about audio quality as the speakers are certified by Harman Kardon and feature the ASUS AudioWizard with five tuning presets.

Powerful hardware

To handle your workloads, the VivoBook S14 and S15 are powered by 10th-gen Intel Core processors, Intel integrated graphics, NVIDIA MX350 2GB VRAM, 8GB DDR4 RAM, and a fast 512GB PCIe SSD. Not only can it handle the usual productivity apps like MS Office, but it can also handle photo and video editing, as well as light gaming.

Add to that the spacious touchpad, fingerprint scanner for additional security, and a backlit keyboard with 1.4mm key travel.


Generous connectivity

Looking for a laptop that can handle different kinds of connectivity without forcing you to buy a dongle or a hub? Then take a look at the VivoBook S14 and S15. It has a USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A, USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C, two USB 2.0, HDMI, audio jack combo, and a microSD card reader. As for wireless connectivity, it has Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band WiFi 6 (802.11 ax). This means, your VivoBook S14 and S15 can connect to the newest and fastest wireless networks available right now.

Long-lasting battery

The VivoBook S14 and S15 features a 3-cell 50Wh lithium-polymer battery, which ASUS says have a lifespan that is 3x longer than standard lithium-ion batteries. It even features a fast charging technology that can replenish the battery to 60% in just 49 minutes. And to ensure a safer charging experience, it comes with an integrated ASUS Battery Health Charging technology designed to decrease the battery expansion rate during charging to help ensure the battery stays in good condition.

Stylish design with colorful options

Although there are plenty of laptops in the market, there’s a good chance that you will see other laptops that sport the same design. That’s a bit of an issue, especially for young professionals who want to express their creativity and personality in the devices that they use. Good thing ASUS used a stylish design, different color options, and an opportunity to customize it.

There’s the nature-inspired Gaia Green, fiery Resolute Red, Dreamy White, and Indie Black. And that’s not all. It also comes with extras to help you customize and personalize your VivoBook S14 or S15. It has a yellow, color-blocking keycap and a set of stickers that reminds you of street art. So, even if you’re sitting next to another person with the same laptop, it’s unlikely you’ll share the same design.

And that’s it. If you’re on a hunt for a laptop that can help you stay productive but at the same time allow you to express your personality, then take a look at the ASUS VivoBook S14 and S15.

    Do both amd and intel variants of the S14 have the same 100% sRGB displays?

    Unfortunately with an MX350, I bet it will be around 50-70k. Ultrabooks with discrete graphics aren’t cheap.
