Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S 14X S5402Z
Despite being "only" a Vivobook, the Vivobook S 14X uses the same 14.5-inch Samsung OLED panel as the Zenbook Pro 14 Duo for a similar viewing experience at a much cheaper price. If you're looking to spend just under $1000 USD on an Ultrabook, then this Asus can offer a lot for the money.

The Vivobook S 14X OLED is notable for one thing: its screen. That such an exceptional screen is available at such a low price is a great thing to see. That it’s being paired with an H-series processor is all the more notable. But I very much question the target audience; how many people who need an H-series processor and are willing to sacrifice portability for its power are content with integrated graphics? My best shot at labeling this group is: someone who really wants a cheap OLED for media consumption. This might be a great option for a college film studies major. More money for an XPS can get you better speakers, battery life, build quality, and graphics — but if you are very budget-constrained and the screen is your top priority, then sure, get this. For everyone else, Vivobook is a great proof of concept but less practical as a purchase. Devices that are exceptional in theory should also work in practice. They are not artwork; people use them every day. With battery life this bad, it is not a practical purchase. It is quite cool, though.

The problem with the Asus Vivobook S 14X is that I have a hard time figuring out exactly what category this fits in. I wouldn’t call it a creator laptop; after all, I edited all of these photos on it and frankly, it was lacking when it was on battery life. And at the same time, people that want a productivity laptop would be better served with a U- or P-series processor. Still, you do get a 2.8K 120Hz screen for $1,100, so there’s a lot of value there.

The Asus Vivobook S 14X is a challenging laptop to rate. Its performance is inconsistent and generally slower than it should be given the fast CPU, and its battery life is poor. Its build quality is also a bit less rigid than I like. But it’s only $1,100 with a competitive configuration and a spectacular 120Hz OLED display that’s better than those on much more expensive laptops. In the end, the performance and battery life hold me back from recommending the Vivobook S 14X. You might have to spend more money, but there are better 14-inch laptops available today.
