Not every Asus laptop announced at the company’s Monday Computex press event in Taipei featured powerful specs. Case in point is the new Asus VivoBook S15 S510, a laptop designed with the ultrabook form factor in mind.
The 15.6-inch S15 weighs just 1.5 kilograms and is 17.9 mm thick, featuring Intel’s seventh-generation Core i7-7500U processor, meant for ultrabooks. Despite its slim form factor, the laptop also manages to squeeze in an Nvidia GeForce GTX940 discrete graphics.
Another cool design trick is the VivoBook’s ultra-thin bezel, designed to maximise the display area and keep the laptop’s footprint small.
As with the new VivoBook Pro, the VivoBook S15’s design is inspired by the ZenBook range and shares a similar industrial design to the series.
It will go on sale with a $499 starting price (roughly £388 or AU$671), though no word yet on when it will be available. Check back soon for our hands-on update.
