Since its inception in 2012, ASUS VivoBook laptops continues to evolve with its improved features and designs. The new 2018 VivoBook S15 and S14 are stylish, lightweight and now comes in vibrant color options. These are great alternatives for the higher-end ZenBooks which may interest students and young professionals.
Gone are the boring usual laptop colors. The new 2018 ASUS VivoBook S15 and S14 opted for striking hues that easily catches one’s attention. ASUS designers have added a dash of style and personality to these products, adopting a color-blocking approach by pairing bright and bold colors for laptops that visually pop. These are available in Firmament Green, Star Grey, Silver Blue, Gun Metal, and Icicle Gold. Firmament Green features a textured woven finish surrounding the keyboard, while Icicle Gold sports a brushed finish with diamond-inspired motifs.
In addition to their color-blocking designs, the VivoBook S15 and S14 feature the innovative ErgoLift hinge to make long typing stints more comfortable. This unique design automatically tilts the keyboard by 3.5 degrees when the laptop is opened to create the familiar feel of a desktop keyboard. The hinge also opens up extra ventilation space for more airflow around the underside of the chassis for improved cooling.
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% screen-to-body ratio, and S14 an 84% screen-to-body ratio in a more compact package. The panels also feature wide-view technology and exceptional color reproduction. The VivoBook S15 and S14 are smaller and extremely portable than other laptops in their class, with profiles that taper to just 18mm at their thinnest point. The 15.6-inch S15 weighs only 1.8kg, while the 14-inch S14 has an overall weight of 1.4kg. Both laptops can easily slip into a messenger bag or backpack.
The S15 and S14 are powered by up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with 16GB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 discrete graphics to make light work of multitasking, multimedia editing, or casual gaming. The S15 has a dual-storage design that provides users with the blistering data speeds of its up to 512GB SSD, and a large capacity 2TB HDD.
We don’t have word yet on when this would be available in the Philippines. I will update everyone as soon as I get word from ASUS regarding the VivoBooks availability.
One last thing.
