Asus has listed the VivoBook 14 on its website ahead of CES 2018. The VivoBook 14 comes in two variants - the X411UA and the X411UQ. The X411UA comes with integrated Intel HD graphics while the X411UQ comes with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU with 2 GB VRAM. Both models come with 8th generation Intel Core 'Kaby Lake-R' CPU options including the dual core Core i3-7100U, quad core Core i5-8250U, and the quad core Core i7-8550U. There's also the option of choosing between a 1366 x 768 TN panel or a FHD IPS panel. 

RAM options range from 4 GB to 16 GB and the storage subsystem is a combination of SSD and traditional HDD. Despite the slim form-factor, the VivoBook does not skimp on ports and comes with one USB-C port, one USB 3.1 port, and two USB 2.0 ports along with an HDMI out port. A combo audio jack, VGA webcam, and an SD card reader round off the other features. 

At just 20 mm thick and weighing about 1.35 kg, the VivoBook has the potential to be one of the most sought after ultrabooks in 2018, given its decent specs and configuration options. The 42 Wh battery should be able to hold enough charge to last at least 6 hours of a typical workday. The Asus VivoBook 14 is expected to be officially unveiled during CES 2018, which is when we will get to learn about more about its pricing and availability.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
