The Asus VivoBook S14 (M433) offers an excellent price to performance ratio, helped in part bythe inclusion of AMD’s efficient AMD Ryzen 4000 series CPU that has enough pixel punching grunt to tackle basic computing and gaming. This is an ideal choice for students and users looking for an affordable notebook for general computing.

Let’s take a step back and look at the big picture. This new ASUS VivoBook S14 M433 is a beautiful laptop with really solid build quality, yet offers a rather powerful AMD chip inside. Both the CPU and GPU performance is great – just that the VRAM is just insufficient. All in all, I really like the new ASUS VivoBook S14 M433.

The ASUS VivoBook S14 will set you back RM3199, which I do believe is a very reasonable price for what you are getting. A portable laptop that will fit into any bag and not weigh you down, yet have enough performance for you to fire up some games if you are in the mood for it.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
