Changing times call for a change in the devices that we use as well. People are now looking for affordable alternatives that can be versatile enough for both work and play, and are also in line with the causes that they believe in (like being eco-friendly). Storage, weight, display, audio, and time-sensitive charging are just some of the most-mentioned features whenever I talk to younger people, and I’m pretty confident that for a brand that draws inspiration from the lifestyle and needs of the youth (a.k.a. the Gen Z), ASUS was able to address majority of these sentiments through the newly-released ASUS VivoBook S14.
As versatile as the youth, who constantly switch from full-on work or study mode to recreation, this laptop can withstand heavy browsing and light gaming on the side. It’s powered by an Intel Core 10th gen processor and an NVIDIA GeForce MX350 that can help make photo and video editing up to 2.5x faster. With a 512GB SSD storage, users can easily download, store and transfer files without any lags.
And of course, we have a strong need to be online almost 24/7 to keep up with news and trends, so an Intel Wi-Fi 6 technology has also been added to the laptop, allowing us to transfer and download media files up to 3x faster.
AESTHETICS ON POINT
If the product is “so me”, then there’s a high chance that it’s going to be part of any add-to-cart moment. This is probably one of the most interesting sentiments that have continuously been present from generation to generation. To step out of the white, black, and silver laptop norm, ASUS provided four color options for the VivoBook S14 – Dreamy White, Indie Black, Gaia Green, and Resolute Red. These can be further personalized with five artsy stickers that come in every box, too! Inside, you’ll also find silver keys that seem to sparkle under bright lights, a color-blocking Enter key, and a backlight for days when we need to work all night.
The laptops easily match any #OOTD without being a burden to the user. It has lightweight chassis, making it easy to bring anywhere without straining your shoulders. Only 1.4kg and 15.9mm thin, to be exact!
MORE THAN WHAT MEETS THE EYE
One can be stylish without compromising quality, too. The ASUS VivoBook S14 is more than what meets the eye – beyond the Full HD NanoEdge display that provides an immersive view of our work, the unit also comes with a Harman Kardon-certified audio which works pretty well even with the speakers situated at the bottom of the laptop. This makes binge-watching our favorite shows more enjoyable.
RESPECTS YOUR TIME
Always multitasking, always on the go, always on their toes – with so much energy and drive to get things done, devices need to keep up with a fast-paced lifestyle. Since time is a very valuable thing, ASUS packed a large 50Wh battery within the VivoBook S14 and powered it with quick charging that can raise up to 60% battery within just 49 minutes of charging. This way, users can have enough juice for an entire day of work and play.
But then again, at the end of the day, we’re looking at the price tag of the things we like. The ASUS VivoBook S14 is priced at just Php 49,995 ( i5 variant) and Php 59,995 ( i7 variant). These are already available in ASUS Concept Stores nationwide and as well as through their official online stores – Lazada, Shopee, and E-store. Would highly recommend to check out online so you won’t need to go out, of course!
On top tof all that, the VivoBook S14’s packaging uses almost zero plastics – something definitely worth mentioning for those who are fighting to make the world more eco-friendly. The box can be reused and the only plastic that you’ll find inside are the small strips wrapped around the charger.
