60% Asus VivoBook S15 (S533F) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus VivoBook S15 features a stylish design and well-rounded speakers, but that doesn’t save it from its middling performance, dull display and mediocre battery life.

ASUS VivoBook S15 S533 review – premium quality coming at a reasonable price
Source: Laptop Media English
Yep, ASUS has somewhat downgraded the features of this notebook. And although we really enjoyed the ScreenPad on the previous model, we didn’t really miss it this year. To sum up, this laptop has a very stylish design, coming in a handful of color options, and similarly to the TUF A15 and A17, the VivoBook S15 S533 has some fancy stickers inside the box.

Source: NLT English
Okay, here’s the thing – this exact configuration of this laptop is priced at RM3,199 – and that Intel Core i5 with MX250 is more than enough for most users out there – especially students. It packs an even better GPU which means we can comfortably play some lightweight titles at higher graphical settings.

78% Geek Review: ASUS VivoBook S15 S533
Source: Geek Culture English
All in all, the VivoBook S15 S533 is a great mid-range 15.6-inch laptop that is affordably priced at S$1,498. It brings smooth snappy performance thanks to its 10th-generation Intel i7 processors and comes with a healthy range of I/O ports to ensure you stay connected no matter which port you need. Couple that with its generous battery life that is enough to last you a whole day on the go and you are set for a day out of the house with the VivoBook S15.

75% ASUS VivoBook S15 S533FL review: A colourful and affordable big screen notebook
Source: Hardware Zone English
Overall performance is pretty good, and battery life is remarkable for such a large notebook. Furthermore, despite the larger display, it isn’t too thick or heavy to carry around. But a few things prevent the VivoBook S15 from getting a higher score. Some of the most important keys on the keyboard are squashed, the trackpad is too small for a notebook of this size, and it doesn’t support USB-C charging. They aren’t necessarily dealbreakers but they are certainly annoying enough for me to mention them again here.

The VivoBook scores points with a Tiger Lake processor, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), a GeForce MX350 graphics core, and a Thunderbolt 4 port. This is complemented by good battery life. Furthermore, the display isn't convincing.

The Asus VivoBook S15 doesn't excel in any one area – it excels in a whole bunch of them, from the internal specs to the external design. Whether it's the best laptop for you depends on your budget, but at this price we think this is a very difficult laptop to beat.

Yet with the removal of the second M.2 SSD, it lacks upgradability and that might be an issue for a small group of users. Nonetheless, the ASUS VivoBook S15 S533EA is still a fantastic laptop.

Comment

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


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

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce MX350: Successor of the MX250 and most likely a renamed GeForce GTX 1050 based on the Pascal GP107 chip with 640 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4-2933 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).

Intel Tiger Lake:

i7-1165G7: An energy-efficient quad-core processor of the Tiger Lake product family designed for sleek laptops. The i7 is manufactured on the second-gen 10 nm Intel SuperFin process and has an Iris Xe G7 (96 EUs) iGPU running at 400 MHz to 1,300 MHz. The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base frequency @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). The i7-1165G7 was the second-fastest CPU in the TGL-UP3 lineup at launch.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.8 kg:


83.37%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
