Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S14 S410UN-EB229T

The ASUS VivoBook S14 turned out to be an excellent portable notebook. It’s very light weighing only 1.3 kg / 2.9 lbs (depending on the configuration) which is less than most other 14-inch notebooks on the market. Another thing that is important especially for people who type a lot is that the keyboard is very comfortable and easy to get used to though it flexes a bit.

The VivoBook S410U is a perfectly good portable pal, but shows too many flaws considering its near-£1000 asking price.

The VivoBook S410U is a successful progression of the series, with decent battery life, compact and stylish body. The machine is ready to handle all day-to-day tasks competently. One of the great security feature is the inclusion of fingerprint scanner.

Asus VivoBook S14 ticks all the boxes for a good laptop, and it hardly leaves any room for complaints. It offers a minimalistic design, good keyboard and superior performance. Although the minimum bezels display was impressive, it has no support for touchscreen. Fingerprint reader performs accurately as well. But poor audio output does stop it from emerging as a true entertainer and as I said, your last hope is to plug in earphones for listening to audio.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
