We spent a week putting it through our benchmark tests as well as using it for work and play. The hãng asus VivoBook S510U spec sheet hits all the right notes, but at the kết thúc of the day, real world use tells a slightly different story, but a happy one nonetheless.

Price & availability

This particular mã sản phẩm is available in the US for $799 (about £617, AU$1,002), with the same configuration we tested for this review. In the UK & Australia, however, hãng asus only lists more robust variants of the VivoBook S, with specifications more in line with gaming laptops than the everyday computer we tested. Pricing for the VivoBook S15 models listed in the respective countries wasn’t available at time of writing.

In the US, Newegg has numerous configurations of the VivoBook S ranging from the mã sản phẩm we tested to lớn a mã sản phẩm with a 2TB SSD và 32GB of memory for $1,836.

At this price, the VivoBook S compares favorably against the Dell XPS 13. With the same processor, GPU & RAM, the VivoBook has more storage (256GB SSD on XPS 13), but lacks the UHD display of the XPS 13. A larger display and lack of a few extra pixels, for some, is a fair tradeoff for the amount of storage gained.

Within the same ballpark price, Microsoft’s Surface laptop gains a touchscreen, a 720p webcam, & a smaller design when compared to lớn the VivoBook S. As with the XPS 13, however, you’re going khổng lồ give up storage space, with the entry Surface máy tính xách tay housing a 256GB SSD.

Overall, there’s solid feel lớn the build quality, as if it can withstand an accidental drop off your desk – though, we don’t suggest you try it. And, with the combination of plastic và aluminum that looks nearly identical, hãng asus is able keep the VivoBook S at an affordable price point without sacrificing looks.


Ports for days

With a fair amount of ports decorating either side of the VivoBook S, you’re unlikely lớn run out of spots to plug in accessories.

The left side is where you’ll find both USB 2.0 ports và a standard SD thẻ reader.

On the opposite side is the 3.5mm audio jack, a lone USB C port, full-size HDMI, a USB 3.1 port, và the DC charging port.

Bezel is officially a buzzword

Surrounding the 15.6-inch, FHD display is a narrow bezel, measuring just 7.8mm. Asus’s official kinh doanh term for this bezel is “NanoEdge” and yes, it looks that way, but we aren’t sure it’s a huge selling point.

Of course, by shrinking the bezels, hãng asus can reduce the overall form size of the VivoBook S, like Dell’s InfinityEdge displays, but the difference isn’t enough lớn warrant us suggesting you limit yourself khổng lồ only NanoEdge bezels.
