Design that defies convention

VivoBook S15 have a metal chassis finished in Moss Green, Punk Pink, Cobalt Blue, Transparent Silver or Gun Metal and VivoBook S14 only have Gun Metal and Transparent Silver, with each color featuring complementing accents to give the laptops color blocking designs that really pop.

The nature inspired Moss Green is paired with Energetic Orange accents to showcase the spirit of exploring the great outdoors, while the street styled Punk Pink with Moss Green trim represents the rebellious streak of a younger generation that’s not afraid to stand up for their beliefs. To appeal to a younger market, these are the first in the VivoBook range to feature the VivoBook logo on the lid, and the lid also features a tactile textured finish to further highlight the series’ different approach to computing. There are also intricate design touches like twill inspired vents and speakers on the underside of the chassis.
The NanoEdge display design provides VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15 with a more compact chassis footprint. Weighing just 1.4 kg and 1.8 kg respectively, they easily slip into a messenger bag or backpack, making them perfect for users who are constantly on the go.

User friendly features

The frameless four sided NanoEdge displays provide VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15 with up to 5.2mm thin bezels and 88% screen to body ratios, giving more immersive visuals for work or play. The ErgoLift hinge tilts the keyboard by 3.5° to provide users with a more comfortable typing experience; its one piece construction also results in a much more durable hinge.

Intel-powered Wi¬ Fi 6 (802.11ax) delivers superfast networking speeds that are up to 3X faster than Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), with 4X the network capacity and 75%-lower latency to reduce large 4K video transfer times by up to 70%. The built in IR camera offers hands-free face login: advanced biometrics work seamlessly with Windows Hello, allowing users to wake their laptops and log in with a simple look. In addition, Harman Kardon certified audio provides high quality detailed sound that’s second to none.
