Asus VivoBook S: A MacBook-like Laptop For Just $700
AsusTek Computer, or most commonly as Asus, introduced its VivoBook S laptop line at the 2017 Computex event. Today, the Taiwanese multinational company launched a new addition to the family called the S510. It has a look similar to Apple's MacBook laptop but for just a price of $700.
The additional sibling to the Asus VivoBook S features great characteristics. These include a 15.6-inch Full HD display, which is equivalent to 1920 x 1280 appearance, seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, maximum of 1TB of storage, 8GB of RAM and several ports. The ports located side to side of the laptop are plenty because it has various slots such as the USB-C, USB Type-A, USB 2.0, HDMI, a 3.5mm jack, and an SD card reader.
According to Pocket-Lint, the S510 weighs 3.7 pounds and has a 7.8mm-thick bezel, which resembles Apple's MacBook. In addition to that, the new VivoBook S comes also with a brushed aluminum chassis. However, checking out the VivoBook Pro S15, which starts at a little more than $700, it doesn't have a full aluminum body but a plastic base with a brushed metal lid and deck.
The newly released Asus VivoBook S S510 starts at a price of $699 and runs Windows 10 Home out of the box. However, the value of the laptop goes up to $799 depending on the owner's desired configuration. As of now, it is not yet sure about the UK pricing, as well as its availability. In the US, according to The Verge, it is available through Asus’ online store, ABT, B&H, Computer Upgrade King, and Newegg.
The Asus VivoBook S S510 laptop would be a great fit for those people who want a robust, ultra powerful and portable laptop like the MacBook Air. Besides, at a price that's a little easier to take with an elegant look, it is really worth to buy. Also, because it doesn't run the Windows 10 S, a user don't have to worry about the limited functionality such as the inability to download third-party apps.
