ASUS released their latest 11th Gen VivoBook S15 Laptop recently. It is designed in order to meet the diverse needs of the younger generation with a better understanding of their needs. The VivoBook S15 is extremely attractive and lightweight. It’s in good balance with 11th Gen Intel processors and NVidia GeForce MX350 graphics, bringing its look and functionality to an unmatched level.
The unique ASUS VivoBook laptop series is powered by 11th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and NVIDIA GeForce MX350 graphics cards. It also incorporates ASUS Intelligent Performance Technology (AIPT) to increase laptop performance by 40%. The VivoBook series of laptops includes several powerful features, including the ability to expand the RAM up to 16 GB. It also consists of the Intel Optane ™ Memory H10 with a large capacity and high-speed PCIe® SSD.
The VivoBook S15’s Intel-powered Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) provides three times the speed of the previous Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac). It quadruples network capacity, reduces latency by more than 75%, and increases 4K UHD video transfer time to 70%.
Design & External Appearance
When we talk about the design and external appearance, The VivoBook S15 is designed with a unique and high-quality premium look.
Vivobook s15 is 17.9mm thin and weighs only 1.7kg, which is designed to carry anywhere easily. This is light and durable because it is a combination of aluminum, alloy, and plastic. Also, it is further enhanced by a diamond-cut design with a metallic cover on the outside. The VivoBook S15 is available in several colors like Aluminium Silver, Indie Black, Resolute Red, Gaia Green, Dreamy White, and Hearty Gold. Vivobook s15 would be a great option for young and creative people.
This consists of a 15.6-inch screen, which has a 1920 by 1080 pixels resolution NanoEdge display. The Screen to body ratio is 85% with thin-bezels of 6.1mm and a 720p HD cam on the top. The best fact about the Screen is that it has a great viewing angle up to 178 degrees, which is so beneficial when sharing the Screen with your family.
As for the laptop’s ports, there are two USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks that can be used for microphones or headphones, an HDMI port, a USB Type C 3.2 port, and a micro SD card reader.
Keyboard and Touchpad
Full-size backlit, with 1.4mm key travel
Precision touchpad (PTP) technology supports up to four-finger smart gestures.
When considering the laptop’s keyboard, the typing experience was so nice. The dish-shaped keys give a very smooth feeling.
Accessing the ASUS VivoBook s15 has never been this much easier or more secure. Because this built-in fingerprint sensor in the touchpad and Windows “Hello” will surely make it able to log in very quickly as there is no need to type your password whenever you log in — just a single touch is all it takes! The fingerprint sensor is placed on the top right corner of the touchpad, instead of usually seen on other laptops. It tends to be near or on the power button.
Audio & Video
Now about the audio, I always appreciate the collaboration between ASUS and Harman Kardon. So we can minimize the usage of headphones. Although dual speakers are underneath, the sound projection was so great, clear, and loud indeed.
The laptop’s built-in microphone has an AI Trained technology to reduce noise while ClearVoice Mic enhances the speechings. So, you don’t need an external microphone if you are making a video or conference calls.
The ASUS Tru2Life Video and graphic enhancement tuning system give you better contrast, clarity, color, and dynamic range. Thus, video playback looks much natural with no issues for smooth streaming with Youtube and Netflix as well. This is TUV Rheinland Eye Care Certified with highly reduced blue light. The Anti-Flicker Technology ensures your eyes won’t get too tired when watching movies, videos, or video editing for a really long time or even when playing games as well.
MyASUS & Software
ASUS VivoBook S laptops include the latest version of the MyASUS software, which allows them to connect seamlessly with mobile devices. This will enable you to transfer files wirelessly between PC and mobile devices easily and quickly. Remote File Access will enable you to transfer data from a laptop to your mobile device at any time, from anywhere. If you are a student or a business personality, features like the Screen Extender, Remote file access, and the Screen mirroring will help you a lot.
In terms of built-in software, this comes with Windows 10 Home. So, multitasking and using the laptop for spreadsheets, email, and browsing was very smooth and easy.
As for the video editing, I tested a 6k resolution Blackmagic RAW file smoothly with playback set to 1/4, which means editing 4k files would definitely be smoother. Gaming test on Forza Motorsport 7, it ran awesome with the settings at dynamic render quality at 1280 by 720p resolution.
Another new feature that ASUS introduced to their new 11th gen VivoBook S series is the ASUS Intelligent Performance Technology (AIPT). It is an ultra-efficient thermal design and a great power-saving solution. Here ASUS exclusive algorithms are combined with five and nine smart sensors, an aerodynamic IceBlade fan design, and a 65-watt power supply to increase CPU performance intelligently. Also improved stability while allowing all-day battery life and a quieter and cooler laptop. So yes, with ASUS Intelligent Performance Technology, your laptop has the ability to run in high-performance status for a long period as per your needs.
