Asus launched its latest Vivobook series laptops in India featuring 8th generation Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, providing users with a great balance between power and price.
The new Asus Vivobook S14 and S15 are ultra-thin and lightweight laptops. Both the laptops are just 18mm thin and weigh just 1.4kg and 1.8kg respectively. Asus has used the three-side NanoEdge technology for the first time in its Vivobook series, resulting in a screen-to-body ratio of up to 86 percent.
"This gives S15 an 86 percent and S14 an 84 percent screen-to-body ratio, thus, offering an immersive experience in a compact package. The panels also feature wide-view technology and colour reproduction for life-like visuals even when viewed from extreme positions,", Asus said in a statement.
Another useful addition to the Vivobook S14 and S15 is Asus’s well-known ErgoLift hinge with which Asus tries to create a desktop keyboard-like experience, making it easier for users to type.
Coming to the specifications of the two laptops, the Vivobook S14 comes with a 14-inch display while the S15 comes with a 15.6-inch display. Both the laptops also feature wideview technology for better viewing angles and improved visuals. For those looking for a full keyboard with the numpad, the S15 is what you’re looking for. As is the case with 14-inch laptops, the S14 doesn’t feature a numpad.
Both the laptops are powered by 8th generation Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, striking a good balance between power and price. As such, the Vivobook S14 and S15 should be more than adequate for multitasking, casual gaming, media consumption and the likes.
Other features include support for Windows Hello for biometric authentication, in addition to an optional fingerprint sensor built in to the touchpad. In terms of connectivity options, you get dual band Wi-Fi ac, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, USB 3.1 Type-A and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI-out and a card reader.
The Vivobook S15 has been priced starting at ₹69,990 while the Vivobook S14 starts at a price of ₹54,990. While the S15 will be available via Asus exclusive stores from November 15, the S14 will be available via Flipkart from November 1.
