Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ-BQ165T

ASUS VivoBook S15 (S510/X510) review – a decent solution in an already over-saturated mid-range multimedia segment
Source: Laptop Media English
Nonetheless, the price tag of the configuration with the 940MX poses a serious question whether or not it’s worth your hard-earned cash. The price difference between the ASUS VivoBook Pro 15 N580VD with the Core i5-7300HQ processor and the VivoBook S510UQ that we reviewed is negligible while the former has aluminum build, considerably more powerful hardware, more reliable cooling system and much better screen quality. Other 15-inch alternatives with similar hardware and displays are the Dell Inspiron 15 5567 (configurations with IPS), the more business-oriented Lenovo ThinkPad E570 and the Lenovo Ideapad 520 as a direct competitor.

75% Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ review: Attractive price and core spec, but battery life is a worry
Source: Zdnet.com English
Asus has equipped the VivoBook S15 S510UQ with a respectable platform in the shape of an 8GB Core i7 CPU and a discrete 2GB Nvidia GPU. However, the build quality could be more robust, there's notable keyboard flex, 256GB of storage might not be enough and the VGA webcam is disappointing. The biggest drawback is battery life, which may not support all-day working for demanding users.

You basically get what you pay for with the ASUS VivoBook S15. Which is to say, not an awful lot. If you're looking to invest in an everyday machine and like the odd game, it may be worth a look, however.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
