While Windows laptops are plenty, good ones are few That is why finding a good laptop that fits your requirements is so difficult

Over time, Macs started being preferred by working professionals Here's an offering from Asus that we think can go head to head with a MacBook Meet the Asus Vivobook S15 As soon as you unbox Asus Vivobook S15, the design becomes evident The laptop has a design profile which feels premium

The unit we received came in Silver color and looked good with the brushed metal pattern At the center, you get the ‘Asus’ logo with a mirror finish Similar metal design continues at the back, keyboard area including the touchpad Even the long single hinge connecting the screen with the body has the same texture The build quality is excellent and the laptop weighs around 1

7kgs which felt very comfortable While this is attractive, it also might prove to be boring and dull for some The laptop is not too think, neither is it heavy for a 156-inch display Talking about the display, the laptop comes with 178˚ wide-viewing angle Full-HD LED display

The bezels around the display are quite narrow The display is sharp, and colors feel punchy It also comes with an anti-glare coating Below the screen, we get a chiclet-type keyboard and a touchpad It was a pleasure to type on this machine as the keys were satisfying to type on

The keyboard is also backed up with LED backlit The touchpad is decent but used to get stuck in the corner when clicked That got solved eventually There’s a Windows-Hello enabled fingerprint scanner on the upper-right corner of the touchpad which works flawlessly The laptop is equipped with a healthy number of ports including USB 3

1 Type-C, USB 31 Type-A, HDMI, charging port, and a 35mm headphone jack on the right side On the left side, we get two USB 20 Type-A ports and one SD card slot along with two LED indicators

FYI, the Type-C port doesn’t charge the laptop The speakers on this machine are mediocre In spite of having SonicMaster the audio output was underwhelming I would suggest to plug-in your headphones for multimedia purposes Sadly, it sports a VGA webcam

At least, they could have put a 720p one Talking about the performance, this machine does all the work buttery smooth There were no lag or hiccups experienced while using the laptop Our unit comes with a Quad Core i7 8th Gen processor coupled with 16 gigs of RAM This is their newer range of quad core chipsets

We played a couple of games on this machine and those worked quite well Thanks to the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 2GB graphics card Games like Asphalt 8 and CS:GO gave above 60 fps on high-settings Triple-A titles will work fine on medium-settings For storage purposes, there’s a 1TB HDD and 128 GB of SSD inside the laptop

Surprisingly, the laptop performed quite well while editing a video Video editors are going to love it Additionally, it is powered by ASUS IceCool Technology which keeps the machine cool Though, while gaming and doing some heavy work the laptop will eventually heat up Moderate usage can keep this laptop alive for like 6-8 hours, while gaming got it down to around two hours

Though, the charging time on this machine is quite impressive You can go from zero to full in just two hours The laptop ships with Windows 10 Home and some ASUS programs We usually suggest Apple laptops to all those who are looking for expensive machines, for the consistency and performance they provide But the Asus VivoBook S15 performed so well in our testing, with it's high end specs and beautiful sleek design, that we think this laptop deserves a spot in a lot of backpacks

At a price tag of around 80,000 Indian Rupees or $1000 in the US, the Asus VivoBook S15 is a compelling package for users looking for a no-compromises notebook If you liked the video, hit the like button If you have any questions or queries, ask us in the comment section below Subscribe to the channel and press the bell icon to never miss our weekly videos Thanks for watching
