Intel’s 8th-generation processors offer increased clock speeds and enhanced performance across most applications. It compares well to its predecessors in synthetic benchmarks, crunching large data sets, video transcoding, application loading times, and even graphical performance. With a Core i7 CPU, this system can multitask efficiently, access frequently used files and applications quickly, and tackle multi-threaded applications with ease.
A dedicated GPU provides you with enhanced graphics performance, compared to an integrated chip. It can accelerate photo and video-editing applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Sony Vegas, and more, to reduce processing times. The GeForce 940MX can also handle light gaming and supports NVIDIA Optimus technology, which allows you to switch between the integrated and dedicated graphics processing unit for an optimal balance between battery life and performance.
The VivoBook S15 features ASUS’s NanoEdge display, which cuts down unsightly bezels to 7.8mm, leaving you with more screen space. It manages to fit a 15.6" Full HD display into a body of a 14" laptop, resulting in an 80% screen-to-body ratio that delivers a more immersive viewing experience. Moreover, the display has wide 178° viewing angles, which is great for sharing content.
Measuring just 0.7 inches thin, the VivoBook S15 is compact enough for your backpack, laptop sleeve, or messenger bag without adding too much bulk. While it may be thin, it doesn’t skimp on connectivity options; offering USB Type-A, USB Type-C, and HDMI ports, as well as an SDXC card reader. With these options, you can connect external storage devices, transfer data quickly, and expand your display for larger viewing and enhanced multitasking.
Rated to last up to 8 hours, depending on use, the VivoBook S15 is designed to keep up with you throughout the day. It’s also built with ASUS IceCool technology, which keeps the system operating at a cooler temperature and prevents throttling. Additionally, if you can manage carrying its charger around, it features fast-charging technology, which can charge the battery up to 60% in just 49 minutes.
