Ready for your online classes or work-from-home setup? As much as we want for things to go back to normal, it seems that everything will be done online for the next few months until a vaccine is finally released to combat the current pandemic, so for those who have been looking for a good affordable laptop, here’s a newly released laptop to consider – the ASUS VivoBook S14 (M433). With a price point lower than Php 45,000, pre-orders come with freebies worth Php 23,000 that will surely be a bang for your buck.
Coming from ASUS Philippines’ online launch last Friday (May 22, 2020), it seems that the specs for the VivoBook S14 is good enough for usual programs that students use. With Vega 8 Graphics and AMD Ryzen 7 4700U 8-core processor, it can also handle basic photo and video editing. Aside from the specifications that you can find below, I also love how this new addition to the VivoBook S includes a unique color-blocking Enter key with yellow edges and text that add a youthful vibe. It also comes with graphic stickers that you can use to personalize the VivoBook S14 (M433).
For people like me, who use their phones and laptops simultaneously, we’d benefit from the new MyASUS software called Link to MyASUS, which seamlessly integrates our workflow between our laptop and mobile device. This enables us to switch between Communications and File Transfer tabs to access our phonebook, make or take calls, and access our files between our PC and phone or tablet.
