What we had today was a really solid machine. Despite some downsides, which honestly were pretty petty not to be fixed, we think that the VivoBook S14 S432 would make a great addition to the home of people that need a fast, portable and sleek looking laptop. Similarly to the ZenBook notebooks of this year, this device is embracing innovation, rather than sticking to the old and well established.
