Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S15 S510UA
Super sleek for cheap. Imagine the XPS 15 9560 stripped down to ULV configuration levels at half the starting price and you get the new VivoBook S15 S510 series. While this sounds good on paper, chassis quality leaves a lot to be desired.

So that’s it! We’ve spoken with Jerry Shen, the CEO of ASUS earlier today and he assures us that they’ll try to stick with the quoted SRP when they bring the notebook over to the Philippines. We’re going to hold him to that promise – hopefully taxes and other expenses don’t mess with the pricing of ASUS too much for the VivoBook S.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
