ASUS unveils 'VivoBook S15' notebook in India at Rs 59990

Asus Zen Book Pro UX550VE Launched as'Fastest Thinnest Lightest Zen Book Pro Ever

On the other hand, the ZenBook UX430 is the thinnest ever ZenBook and weighs only 1.25kg.

The latest ZenBook and VivoBook thin-and-light laptops push the boundaries of design and technology to deliver ultimate mobile computing experiences.

Asus has not only been launching smartphones in the market but the Taiwanese company has also been unveiling new laptops for consumers in the market.

Starting off, the most talked about feature of both the laptops is the bezel-less NanoEdge display as the company likes to call it. On the graphics front, it features NVIDIA GeForce MX150.

Assassin's Creed Origins is getting an educational mode for history nerds
Discovery Tour is just one way that Assassin's Creed Origins promises to reinvent and enrich the franchise experience. It takes the franchise's "historical tourism" and offers it to a much wider audience in a supremely polished form.

Coming to the VivoBook S15, the device is just 17.9mm thick and weighs 1.7 kg. It's ideal for those constantly on the go and easily fits into a messenger bag or backpack. It has an Icicle Gold metallic finish for a premium look. The laptop also comes with a fingerprint scanner with support for Windows Hello and a backlit keyboard for use during dark environments.

Under the hood, the laptop packs a seventh generation Intel's seventh generation quad-core 2.8GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor (up to 3.8GHz with Turbo Boost) which is paired with 16GB of DDR4 RAM. It comes with dual hard drives which include 1TB HDD of storage to store your files and media, while another 128GB SSD stores you boot and application files. Asus VivoBook S15 also features one USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI port, and Bluetooth 4.2. Its dual-band 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi provides up to 6X-faster data speeds over the previous 802.11n standard.

Sound processing is also really good since Asus has incorporated its SonicMaster audio technology. SuperBattery does this by intelligently monitoring and limiting the maximum charge that can be given to the battery cells. It can rapidly charge the ASUS VivoBook S15 from 0 to 60 percent of the capacity in only 49 minutes. Limiting the laptop charging in this way helps to further increase its battery's operational life.

While true that this model of the Zenbook is the most powerful one ever made, the GPU specs are a bit underwhelming with companies producing machines with significantly more powerful GeForce GTX 1070 graphics. The laptop comes loaded with a 15.6-inch Full HD display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels along with 178-degree wide viewing angle. However, few notable differences between the two include a 14-inch Full HD (1080p) display with features 7.18mm NanoEdge bezel and Intel 8th Generation Core i7 processor. Last but not the least, Asus claims that ZenBook UX430 will offer up to 9-hours of battery on standard usage. The VivoBook S15 with prices starting from Rs 59,990, will be available for sale via offline and online retailers from October 1, whereas the ZenBook UX430 prices starting from Rs 74,990.
