Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S15 S530UN-BQ353T

80% Asus VivoBook S15 S530 review (S530UA – i7-8750U, UHD 620) – compact 15-inch laptop on a budget
Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
The Asus VivoBook S530 improves on last year's VivoBook S510 and should be one of the most popular notebooks in its class of compact and affordable all-round computers in 2018. Most of the improvements are aesthetic though, corroborated with a hardware update and a new and slightly more comfortable to use keyboard, but potential buyers would still have to live with the rather small battery life and dim IPS screen. Read on for the whole story.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

15.60":

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.
