Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S14 S406UA-BV023T
Price-to-performance deficit. The Asus VivoBook S14 S406UA delights with a slim, light case, a thin display lid, a backlit keyboard and great battery life. The screen and the case, however, disapoint.

I personally love the Asus VivoBook S14 S406U. It's one of the very few models in its price segment to sport the right ingredients for good performance. Intel's 8th Gen Core i5 along with 8GB of RAM should keep the laptop up to date until Intel's 9th Gen line-up flows in. Though SATA, the solid-state drive inside makes a world of difference to the laptop's overall computing speed. The compromise on storage volume is well worth the speed benefit gained instead. What's more, it's got a comfortable backlit keyboard and a precision touchpad. The audio quality is respectable too.

The VivoBook S14 isn't much of a looker and it could do with better speakers, but it's still a great deal for the casual user.

The answer is yes. The VivoBook S14 is one of the first few Windows laptops to challenge the MacBook Air, the way it does, and also it manages to give Apple's machine a run for its money, while at it, at least for the most part. It looks premium, has the best in-class display, latest hardware, and an aggressive price tag. It's not perfect. It could have done with a bigger battery, but then, fast charging ensures that it is up and running in a jiffy.

The Asus VivoBook S certainly stands out as an attractive and colorful-looking laptop that’s perfect for college students and those with a disdain for gray.
