Asus cleared covers from two new laptops targeting young PC users – VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15. The VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15 come in two versions and are powered by Intel's 8th generation processors. Like the new ZenBook series notebooks, the VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15 feature ScreenPad 2.0 technology and rely on the Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics processor. The new VivoBook Series notebooks also lend the NanoEdge ZenBook display design to a colorful, contrasting edge design.
The Asus VivoBook S14 and the VivoBook S15 are the first VivoBook notebooks with ScreenPad 2.0, an upgraded touch touchpad equipped with the Asus touchscreen, which is also part of the newly launched ZenBook notebook. The new VivoBook Series notebooks feature ErgoLift hinge design for more comfortable typing and deliver Wi-Fi 6 (Wi-Fi 802.11ax) support for low latency and faster connectivity. However, at this point, Asus did not reveal details of the prices and availability of VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15.
Specifications Asus VivoBook S14 (S431 / S432)
The Asus VivoBook S14 features a 14-inch Full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) with a 16: 9 aspect ratio and a screen ratio of up to 88%. The laptop can be configured with up to the 8th Intel Core i7-8565U processor, paired with up to 16GB of RAM. Storage space can go up to 1 TB of PCIe SSD, while graphics options vary between Intel UHD 620 and Nvidia GeForce MX250 with 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM.
Asus launched VivoBook S14 in two versions – VivoBook S14 (S431) and VivoBook S14 (S432). ScreenPad 2.0 will be exclusive. Another difference between the two variations lies in the battery's capacity when VivoBook S14 (S431) packs a 47Wh 2 cell lithium-polymer battery while VivoBook S14 draws power from a 42Wh 3-cell lithium polymer battery. It also has another USB 2.0 port, but both versions come with fast charging support.
Specifications Asus VivoBook S15 (S531 / S532)
The Asus VivoBook S15 features a 15.6-inch Full-HD LED display (1920 x 1080 pixels) with a 16: 9 aspect ratio and a 88% aspect ratio. It can be configured up to an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor with up to 16 GB RAM and up to 1 TB of PCIe SSD with an Intel Core i7 processor. In the graphics department, buyers will be able to choose between an integrated Intel UHD 620 and an Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics card with 2 GB of graphics memory.
Like VivoBook S14, Asus introduced two variants of VivoBook S15. The VivoBook S15 (S531) omits the new touch screen touch panel and features a 42Wh 3-cell lithium polymer battery. VivoBook S15 (S532) is a version that comes with ScreenPad 2.0 with the same battery capacity and support for fast charging.
