ASUS has announced the launch of ASUS VivoBook S Series laptops in Sri Lanka, specifically targeting the young users. 

The ASUS VivoBook S series is a perennial favourite, and the new S14 and S15 models debut a new bolder look that’s sure to get pulses racing. If the flashy chassis colours aren’t enough to do that, the bold yellow ‘Enter’ key will do the trick. Anodised diamond-cut chamfered edges give the slim chassis an even more svelte appearance and make it easier to open the lid, while the new VivoBook logo highlights the simple but extraordinary craftsmanship of this beautiful laptop.

To celebrate a new decade, the VivoBook S lineup introduces new colours: Resolute Red is a bold colour that will smoulder on any desk, while Gaia Green is a softer colour inspired by nature. Dreamy White exudes sophistication and sets off the laptop’s accents. Finally, Indie Black makes a powerful statement with the contrast between its shadowy finish and bright display. Whatever colour it’s dressed in, the updated precision-crafted all-metal chassis is not only sturdy and light, but a delight to hold with its diamond-cut chamfered edges. The VivoBook S lineup also includes a unique yellow colour-blocked Enter key that adds a bit of flair and aesthetic to each model.

VivoBook S Series also includes stickers featuring unique designs and phrases that harmonise with each of the four different VivoBook colours, allowing younger users to further personalise their VivoBook.

The slim and lightweight ASUS VivoBook S Series keeps users productive and entertained, even on the go. With an overall weight starting from just 1.4 kg and featuring an ultrathin profile that’s as slim as 1.59 mm, they both offer effortless portability. 

Thin-bezel NanoEdge displays provide an immersive viewing experience and enable a more compact footprint, so VivoBook S14 and S15 take up less space on a desk or in a bag, and the FHD display offers wide viewing angles and exceptional colour reproduction for truly vivid visuals.

With its 15.6-inch display, VivoBook S15 offers the maximum screen space in a compact footprint, so it’s the most practical choice for those who tend to multitask with two or more active windows on the screen. VivoBook S14 is a great all-round size for a wide variety of users, with its 14-inch display and weighing in at 1.4 kg. 

For users who like to use a numeric keypad, VivoBook S14 optionally includes the ASUS NumberPad 2.0, a touchpad with an integrated LED-illuminated numeric keypad for quick data entry. And for a better typing experience on all three models, each VivoBook S offers larger keycaps than average for easy, comfortable, and accurate input.

ASUS VivoBook S14 and S15 have all the performance needed to get users through the day. They feature 10th Gen Intel Core processors that are perfect for multitasking and high-definition entertainment, with a choice of Intel integrated graphics or NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete graphics. Storage comprises up to a 1 TB PCIe SSD, optional Intel Optane Memory H10, and up to 16 GB RAM.

The Intel-powered WiFi 6 (802.11ax) delivers superfast networking speeds that are up to 3X faster than WiFi 5 (802.11ac), with 4X the network capacity and 75%-lower latency to reduce large 4K UHD video-transfer times by up to 70%.

ASUS VivoBook S series laptops include the latest version of the MyASUS software. The software now allows seamless integration with mobile devices, using the Link to MyASUS mobile app. New features include fast and easy wireless file and URL transfers for users who need to share files or web links seamlessly between their PC and mobile devices; Remote File Access for accessing data on mobile devices from a laptop, anytime and anywhere; and smooth multitasking using the screen mirroring and screen extender functions that give users an auxiliary display for cross-referencing and other uses.
