Summary: There"s no other máy vi tính with the size, looks & features of the VivoBook S15 S510 available for the same kind of money right now. This is a full-size notebook with a 15-inch screen and yet a compact footprint & weight of around 3.6 lbs, a notebook that offers a backlit keyboard, matte IPS screen, good IO, fast wireless and modern hardware for around $700-$800 for the best buy configurations. The downsides are the somewhat flimsy plastic main-chassis, the rather small 43 Wh battery & the mediocre webcam, but I reckon many will be able khổng lồ look past these in the grand scheme of what this VivoBook is, that"s why it gets a solid rating in this đánh giá and our recommendation. Read on for the whole story.

We’re having a look at a new mid-range series of laptops in this article, scheduled for release in the second part of 2017, the asus Vivobook Slim.

This is not your average notebook line though, as it’s one of these new iterations of thin-and-light computers that put a big screen with tiny bezels inside a compact & light body. We got lớn spend time with probably the most interesting member of the line, the Vivobook S15 S510UQ, a 15-inch laptop that weighs just 3.6 lbs and offers modern Intel chip core U hardware, dedicated Nvidia Graphics, dual-storage, a backlit keyboard và for most configurations, an IPS FHD screen.

The Vivobook S510 series is however available in a bunch of different options, with dedicated graphics (S510UN – MX150, S510UQ – 940MX, S510UR – 930MX) or without (S510UA), as well as various Intel core U processors, screen options and amounts of memory and storage. At the same time, the same series is sold as VivoBook F510 in the US. Prices start at around $500 for the base Vivobook S15 S510UA mã sản phẩm with a core i3 CPU & a TN HD display, and go up to lớn about $$900 – $1000 for the higher over S15 S510UN models with Nvidia MX150 graphics, the IPS FHD screen & dual-storage, which is similar to the version we’re talking about in this article. On top of these variants, hãng asus also plans khổng lồ offer 14 & 17-inch Vivobook Slims, but more about those in later posts.

For now, we’ll focus entirely on the S15 S510 series, with all its goods & quirks. And while our chạy thử unit is the S510UQ model with Nvidia 940MX graphics, our findings also cover the S510UA, which are identical và just lack the Nvidia chip on the motherboard, or the S510UN models, an updated version with an 8th gen bộ vi xử lý core i7-8550U processor (more about this line of 8th ren Intel processors here) & Nvidia MX150 graphics (more about this cpu here).

Update: Our nhận xét of this laptop’s most recent follow-up, the VivoBook S 15 S532, is available over here.

Design & first look

I have to get this out from the beginning, this Vivobook S510 is one of the nicest 15-inch laptops I’ve ever got my hands on, and it’s merely the mid option in Asus’s new line.

Of course, there are quite a few devices with more premium builds và finishes out there, like the Zenbook UX530, lg gram 15, Samsung Notebook 9 or Dell XPS 15, but for something that sells for a lot less this Vivobook is surprisingly small, light & appealing. It weighs about 3.6 lbs in the configuration we got for this test, và it’s slim and petite for a 15-inch laptop. You’ll understand why when you’ll open it up và see those narrow bezels around the screen.

Bottom point, if you’re willing khổng lồ compromise (not that much though) on build & battery life in order to save a few hundreds of dollars, the Vivobook S15 S510 is for you. On the other hand, if you don’t care about size and portability, you will find cheaper laptops with similar specs, và if you’re willing to lớn spend much in order khổng lồ address these issues, there are options for you out there as well.

All in all though, I’m impressed with what asus managed to vị here và the Vivobook S15 gets our strong recommendation in its niche of budget thin-and-light full-size laptops.
