    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.

    The VivoBook S14 and S15 are equipped with either 14-inch or 15-inch LCD panels with thin bezels. The screen has an FHD resolution (1920×1080) with viewing angles up to 178 degrees. Well, this is not the only screen that this laptop has. The other screen, the ScreenPad 2.0, is a 5.65-inch display integrated into the touchpad. It has a FHD+ (2160×1080) resolution. The ScreenPad can be used as a second screen in selected applications to make the operation easier.
