#BeyondTheEdge and #AsusIndia
This time we are here with a blog on one of the best laptops available right now in the market. Any Guesses? When it comes to the word ‘BEST’ in the consumer electronics market or should we say the laptops, notebooks and mobile phones market, undoubtedly ASUS is the brand that strikes us. I am writing this blog for the Biggest Giveaway of ASUS VivoBook S15 by ASUS India and MUMBIKER NIKHIL.
I have always been an ASUS fanboy. It’s like I love ASUS like anything as all the ASUS products have excellent performance, premium build quality, and also a Good Brand name.
So, talking about the ASUS VivoBook S15 notebook, ASUS’ VivoBook range is renowned for being a “mainstream” series of laptops that offer great value and performance. But there is nothing mainstream about the design and specifications of this new ASUS VivoBook S15.
ASUS VivoBook S15 is one of the lightest and slimmest notebooks in the given price segment weighing only 1.7kg and with a sleek chassis that is only 17.9mm. In fact, the ASUS VivoBook S15 almost rivals thin-and-light Ultrabooks in compactness. The laptop has a 15.6 inch.
Under the hood, the top of the line model of the ASUS Vivobook S15 has the latest, Eighth generation Intel Core i7 performance series processor, coupled with a powerful MX150 discreet graphics
engine and up to 16 GB DDR4 high-speed memory (RAM). On the storage front, It has massive storage options of 1TB HDD and expandable up to 2TB HDD, paired with 128GB and expandable up to a 512GB high-speed SSD for fast booting. These powerful components seem improbable considering its slim chassis and help it stand out further from its rivals.
Here are the detailed information about the different components present inside the VivoBook S15
About MX 150 GPU
Vivobook S15 delivers unmatched graphics performance, thanks to the latest MX 150 series graphics from Nvidia, The MX150 is based on the 16nm GP108 chip, It is an effort to bring Powerful visual performance to the masses who need enough GPU for smooth 4K video playback and for the gamers, it is the successor to the older Maxwell-based GeForce 940 series and the performance is higher than the older 940 series GPU. MX 150 is smaller in size due to a smaller die size, which in turn enables us to use it in a compact chassis like the S510. Also due to the smaller die size, the MX 150 is more power efficient and runs cooler than its predecessors while delivering up to twice the performance!
About Intel 8th generation Processor
Vivobook S15 comes with latest Intel 8th gen processor, and one of the main advantages with Intel 8th gen is improved 4K video playback performance with improved power efficiency, which allows “up to 8 hours” of local 4K video playback on a single charge. The biggest improvement featured in Intel 8th gen ULV processors compared to 7th gen counterparts is that 8th gen processors feature 4 cores and 8 threads as compared to 2 cores and 4 threads seen in the 7th gen processor, delivering about 60% more performance compared to the previous generation. Presence of the Intel 8th generation processor in this laptop is one of the reasons I want to win this laptop.
Ultra-Comfortable Backlit Keyboard
Comfortable typing – Go ahead and try typing on the ASUS VivoBook S15, you’ll find that it is extremely
comfortable. This is made possible by its Chiclet-style key design that features wide, separated keys. This makes each press discernable and precise; and as a result, comfortable for prolonged typing.
This comfortable, high-reliability keyboard is the result of the hard work invested by a team of specialist
engineers within ASUS who are dedicated to perfecting keyboards.
Convenient backlighting – In addition to being comfortable, the ASUS VivoBook S15’s keyboard keys’ character markings are also backlit for convenient typing in dark environments. As I am a blogger it is one of the most important features for me.
Long Life SuperBattery and Battery Health Charging App
If a laptop is constantly plugged in and the battery stays at 98% to 100% of its maximum capacity for long
periods, this will significantly decrease its lifespan and may cause it to expand physically.
The ASUS VivoBook S15 has two technologies that prevent this and extends the battery’s operational life:
1) SuperBattery – A special battery preservation technology known as “SuperBattery” that gives it three
times (3X) the battery lifespan of conventional laptop batteries. SuperBattery does this by intelligently
monitoring and limiting the maximum charge that can be given to the battery cells. With SuperBattery,
the ASUS VivoBook S15 can:
Achieve a total of over 900 charge cycles compared to 300 for a conventional notebook’s batteries
Rapidly charge the ASUS VivoBook S15 from 0 to 60% of the capacity in only 49 minutes.
2) The Asus Battery Health Charging App – This allows users to manually set the Relative State of Charge(RSOC) to 60%, 80% or 100%. Limiting the laptop charging in this way helps to further increase its battery’s operational life.
The VivoBook S15 has the best battery backup in the current laptop market.
ASUS has proved that they don’t compromise on quality and specifications. The ASUS VivoBook S15 features two side-firing speakers that are powered by ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. ASUS Sonic Master is a mix of hardware, software, and tuning technologies that were developed to deliver the best possible audio, and overcome the challenging size constraints of laptop PCs – especially ones as compact as the ASUS VivoBook S15. If you are a die heart Music listener it is the only laptop available for you in the market in the given price segment.
FingerPrint Scanner is one of the most important features present on the ASUS VivoBook S15. Mounted on the top right corner of ASUS VivoBook S15’s touchpad is a fingerprint scanner that works with the Windows 10 “Hello” security login feature. This lets users quickly and conveniently login and unlock their PC simply using their fingerprint. This is an important feature to ensure the owner’s data security in the event of accidental loss.
Here are the prices for the different models of ASUS VivoBook S15:
Vivobook S K510 (I5/8GB/1TB/GT940MX Graphic) starts from 54,990 INR
Vivobook S S510 (I5/8GB/1TB/MX150 Graphic) starts from 59,990 INR
Vivobook S S510 (i7/16GB/1TB+128GB SSD/MX 150 Graphic) starts from 79,990
This brings me to the point why I want to win the ASUS VivoBook S15. Well, I am a blogger and student as well. To maintain this website properly I need a good laptop(although VivoBook is the best one in the given price segment) and ASUS VivoBook S15 is that laptop. and I also have to go somewhere (Into some University or College) after my 12th for which I will be needing a laptop and the VivoBook S15 is the best companion for a student and a blogger. And the VivoBook S15 is one of the rarest laptops that have both a great display and a great keyboard. and I have been using Asus Zenfones for a long time from Asus Zenfone 5 to Asus Zenfone 2 laser to Asus Zenfone 3 laser I have all of them in my family which has built a strong trust on ASUS.
So at last I would like to conclude my blog by saying that may the best one wins.
