Asus VivoBook S13 Series

Asus VivoBook S13 S333JA-DS51

Asus continues to charm the younger audience from the pool of millennials by releasing the VivoBook S13 which could potentially become the next sensational topic among youngsters nowadays. The Asus VivoBook S13 exudes a vibrant and youthful vibe, which is guaranteed to win the heart of many who value modern aesthetic above all else. The VivoBook S13 is the first laptop under the umbrella of the Asus brand to feature a frameless four-sided NanoEdge display. The ultrathin bezels, which measure up to only 4.3 millimeters, gives way to an almost frameless frontal FHD display. With a 13.3-inch wide-sized screen proportioning up to a screen-to-body ratio of 89 percent, the VivoBook S13 takes it to the next level by introducing some essential visual performance technology to complement its exemplary overall design. The Asus Splendid technology brings to the table a total of four custom presets for the best visual optimization to choose from. Ranging from Vivid Mode, which brings more colorful highlights into life, to the Eye Care mode, which reduces blue-light levels up to 30 percent for prolonged viewing, users need not fumble over color settings and could just select from one of these presets in accordance to their liking. Not only that, the Asus Tru2Life Video technology strives to deliver the best motion pictures experience through calculated optimization. Contrast level is said to be increased up to 150 percent. Spectators are bound to notice the miniscule details in films which they may or may not have noticed before.

Coming across the subject of physical design, it is undeniable that the Asus VivoBook S13 sports one of the most stylish looks out there. The Asus VivoBook S13 wears an immaculate and chic aluminum construction, which can be further lustrated into three different colors. The classic Transparent Silver hue is the default go-to option for an imminent professional look. The sensuous and feminine Rose Gold embodies the pinnacle of high-born socialite at its finest. However, the Icicle Gold takes the cake for branding itself as one of the most unique shades to be seen on a laptop. The Icicle Gold color on the Asus VivoBook S13 adds a luxurious and premium touch to the laptop’s overall design without commanding too much attention to itself as it relies more upon the rich subtlety it delivers. Speaking of subtlety, the Asus VivoBook S13 has a unique feature dubbed as the ErgoLift. The ErgoLift borrows its inspiration from a distinct ergonomic design meant to uplift comfort. This engineered mechanism adds a 2.5-degree keyboard tilt whenever the laptop is fully opened. This slight tilt lays the keyboard out for a more comfortable typing position. Not only that, the small space created under the laptop by this ErgoLift mechanism facilitates airflow for improved cooling.

ASUS VivoBook S13 S330 review – looks good but feels cheap
Source: Laptop Media English
From heels to the top, this device feels like it is on the budget side of laptops spectrum. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since this brings the joy of having a laptop for coffee shops, and at the same time having some spare change to buy a coffee. Let’s do the simple math here – if you opt for the VivoBook S13 S330 instead of the ZenBook 13 UX333 (for example), you end up having around $200 more. If an average latte costs around 4 bucks, there you go – you will have enough money for 50 coffees. Anyhow, there are some well-priced products in this category – the Acer Swift 3 (SF314-56) and the not-so-fancy-looking HP ProBook 440 G6.

Asus is positioning its latest VivoBook series as a solution for younger users on tighter budgets. Though it's nowhere near as fancy or appealing as the ZenBook, the VivoBook S333 is still a major improvement over the older VivoBook S330 series.
