Model: The Asus VivoBook 14 is an interesting entry to the VivoBook series. Tethering between the identity of a colorful fun-sized laptop and an exponential travel-friendly working tool, the Asus VivoBook 14 shows a lot of promise in various departments when it comes to looks and also performance. The Asus VivoBook 14 is a compact laptop featuring a frameless four-sided NanoEdge design for the ultimate immersion experience. Its 14-inch FHD display stretches considerably close to the edges of the entire frontal display. With a 87 % screen-to-body ratio coupled with a measured 5.7 millimeters of ultra-slim bezel, users can already preview almost everything in front of them with vivid vibrancy topped with a 178 degree wide viewing angle for an overreaching vastness right before their very eyes.

The compact size of the Asus VivoBook 14 makes it an amiable companion to travel around with. The frameless four-sided NanoEdge display reduces dimensions down to a minimum in which the user can fully take advantage of the Asus VivoBook 14’s miniature size. The Asus VivoBook 14 occupies lesser space compared to most existing laptops that are floating around in the market and also can be casually fitted into a travel bag with perfect ease. Its lightweight property, which comes with its default nature for being a friendly compact-sized laptop, reduces the burden of carrying redundant weight on the shoulders. The Asus VivoBook 14 only weighs up to a mere 1.5 kilograms in approximation and it is arguably lighter than carrying a stack of papers. In addition, the Asus VivoBook 14 comes in a variety of colors guaranteed to capture any potential customer’s attention. From a rather extensive range of colors such as Transparent Silver, Peacock Blue, Slate Grey, and also Coral Crush, one would only need to choose a themed color which matches the personal style.

It is worth noting that the Asus VivoBook 14 is equipped with a rather intriguing NVIDIA GeForce MX230 graphics processing unit. NVIDIA GeForce graphics processing units are most commonly associated and found in the construction of gaming laptops. The integration of one such brand within the Asus VivoBook 14 begs various interesting questions to be answered. For instance, the NVIDIA GeForce MX230 not only permits several titles of modern Triple A (AAA) games to run smoothly on its compact-sized physique, but the GeForce MX230 also supercharges the Asus VivoBook 14 with 2.6 times faster performance over integrated graphics for photo and video-editing applications. This makes the Asus VivoBook 14 not only ideal for work, but also a reliable companion to candidly play games on.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
