ASUS Vivobook

ASUS announced the VivoBook S-series, its series of mid-range laptops at Computex. The USP of these laptops is the ASUS’s ScreenPad 2.0, a display integrated into the touchpad. This will be for the first time that ASUS will be putting this feature in a mid-range laptop. The reason could be to encourage more and more developers to support the secondary display and make it actually useful.

ASUS VivoBook series comes in a brushed aluminum body with some touches of lightweight plastic. This combination ensures durability with a relatively low weight (between 1.4 and 1.8 kilograms). The thickness of the laptop is just 0.7 inch, making this notebook quite easy to handle. There are a lot of color options available, Moss Green, Transparent Silver, Gun Metal, Cobalt Blue, and Punk Pink.
