For the most part, the 2020 VivoBooks S14s have outgrown their mid-tier segment, with neat design lines, excellent build quality, competent specs and long battery life, as well as fine inputs and punchy screens. Asus still went with fairly dim panels here, which limit the laptops' usability in brighter environments, and there are a few more quirks you should be aware of, regarding the keyboard/panel options on the lower-end S433FA models, and well as the overall performance of the S433FL variants with Nvidia graphics. We're covering all these in the review down below.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.
