Asus VivoBook S15 S530FA

Colors that match your vibe

           

If there was ever a laptop that represents who you are, it’s the youthful and vivacious ASUS VivoBook Series. The new VivoBook S15 adds a dash of personality to your mobile lifestyle, featuring a bold new lightweight design with unique color combinations, a choice of textured finishes, and the innovative three-sided NanoEdge display and ErgoLift hinge. Like every other VivoBook before it, S14 offers a combination of performance, style, and comfort to help you get the job done, wherever you are.

Design

Dare to be different

          

When it comes to looks, VivoBook S15 doesn’t do boring traditional laptop colors. Instead, it has striking hues that let you express yourself, adopting a color-blocking approach to pair the bright and bold with more subtle colors for a laptop that visually pops.

Colors

A dash of color to your life

VivoBook S15 has five exciting hues that tell the world who you are. Whatever your style and outlook, S14 has a color combination to match it.

Gun Metal

                           

A longtime favorite, it’s a color of maturity and reliability.

Icicle Gold

                           

The color for perseverance and elegance, Icicle Gold embodies true luxury.

Firmament Green

                            

With an air of mystery and charm, this color option features a graduated finish that hints at all the possibilities of a bright future.

Star Grey

                            

A familiar classic is updated with a flash of red along its flanks. Think of it as the introvert who knows how to have a little fun.

Silver Blue

                            

Optimistic and cheerful, Silver Blue features bright yellow accents along its side. It’s definitely a color of the future.

ErgoLift

Give yourself a lift

        

Open up VivoBook S15 for a world of productivity and possibilities. Its precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge has a silky-smooth dual action that holds the display securely at any angle, and slightly tilts the keyboard up by 3.5° to give you a perfect typing position every time. The ErgoLift hinge also improves cooling for a stable computing experience.

Thin and Light

Lighten the load

          

VivoBook S15 is the ultraportable that doesn’t weigh you down. Ultrathin and light, simply slip S14 into your messen  ger bag or backpack, and away you go!

NanoEdge Display

See more, do more

          

The new NanoEdge display on VivoBook S15 continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible — the new three-sided NanoEdge display now has an even narrower bezel along the top and sides of the display. This results in an 84% screen-to-body ratio that provides unrivaled immersion in a much more compact package. And when you throw wide viewing angles and exceptional color reproduction into the mix, every visual task is made easier. Entertainment is simply more awesome with S14!

Performance

Making everything possible

          

Your future is what you make of it, and VivoBook S15 has the tools to help you every step of the way. With the very latest 8th Generation Intel Core processors at your disposal, you’re ready for what lies ahead, be it productive multitasking, multimedia editing, or casual gaming.

Audio

Set an inspirational tone

         

ASUS SonicMaster is a combination of hardware, software and audio tuning designed with the goal of giving you the very best audio experience. A professional-grade codec ensures precise audio encoding and decoding; while amplifiers, large speakers and resonance chambers perfectly suited to VivoBook S15 ensure a powerful audio delivery and deeper bass. Additional signal processing and tuning help refine minute details, filter noise and improve audio clarity so you get truly immersive sound.

Wi-Fi Master

Be free

         

Step out of your workstation and into the future — whether at home, a quaint downtown café, or the airport — your office is wherever you choose it to be. VivoBook S15 boasts the latest wireless networking features and ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology3 to give you faster and more reliable connections at greater distances than ever before. Even when you’re using USB 3.0 devices — which can be a source of wireless interference — you can still stream smoothly even when S14 is 225 meters or more away from the router, that’s 65 meters further than the range of standard laptops!

Productivity

Maximizing your potential

VivoBook S15 has a wide range of features designed to keep you productive throughout the day. It features a full-size backlit keyboard for a comfortable typing experience, and a fingerprint sensor that’s integrated into the touchpad for fast and secure login. A USB Type-C (USB-C) port ensures superfast data transfer speeds, while a fast-charging feature helps recharge a low battery to 60% in just 49 minutes.

Notebooks are not as flexible as a desktop setup when it comes to upgrading the system. You cannot just change or upgrade a component as you can do with your desktop. When you make your choice, you’ve made it.

For this reason, we recommend you to think carefully about what you will do with your next laptop before you make the purchase. In this guide, we want to take you through the factors and features you need to keep in mind while purchasing a new notebook.
 

Size


When it comes to notebook, size matters. Based on what you want to be doing with your notebook, you’ll want to make sure you pick the right size that’s the right fit for you. As you cannot change the size later, like you can upgrade the RAM or ROM, it is crucial to pick the right size.

Notebook sizes tend to start at 11.6-inches and go all the way up to 17.3 inches. If portability is what you are looking for, you’ll want to go for a smaller sized notebook. Smaller sized notebooks, however, don’t usually support high-end CPUs or graphics card that comes with their 15.6 counterparts.

There are convertibles, also known as 2-in-1 laptops, allow you to run your PC in tablet mode when you fold or remove the keyboard. Convertibles of several brands, including HP and Lenovo, are currently available at Ryans. You can check our online store or physically visit any of our showrooms for a closer look.

If you are a heavy gamer, you should opt for gaming laptops with beefier specs and bulkier form-factor.
 

Screen Resolution


Along with the size, screen resolution of your next notebook should also be taken into account. You’ll probably end up staring at your screen hours at a time, so it is important to get a screen that is comfortable to look at.

You need to consider whether you want your notebook to have a touchscreen. Although touchscreens make your tasks easy, sometimes these screens come with undesired glossiness, which could hurt gameplay, editing images and video content. So, think carefully about your tasks to be done and make the right decision. Lenovo Yoga 920 and HP Spectre 13-AF515TU, these two models are currently available at Ryans, you can knock us on our FB page or call us @ +8809604442121 for any query.

Anyways, next jump into the next thing to take into account while speaking about the display, screen resolution. The minimum screen resolution you’ll usually find is 1366x768 pixels. You should go for a 1920x1080-pixel resolution if you want plenty of space to keep things in view. Some modern notebooks also offer 4K resolution but you have to pay a premium to have such high-spec resolution.

If you are a gamer, you must check the refresh rate, as a faster refresh rate can give you a competitive advantage in online gaming.

Viewing angle is another important factor to take into account. A laptop with an IPS display usually offers the widest viewing angle to suit your needs.
 

Keyboard


For longer typing sessions, you should opt for a notebook that has a comfortable layout with full-sized keys and some space around the arrow keys. The keys should have adequate travel on the downstroke and snappy responsiveness when you let them go. You need to make sure the keyboard has backlit if you often type in dimly lit environments.
 

CPU


Intel’s core-based processors are usually anyone’s preferred choice when it comes to buying a new notebook. In terms of multitasking and multimedia tasks, an Intel core processor offers the best performance in general. Entry-level systems come with core-i3 processors, while the majority of the mainstream computers are powered by core i5 processor.

You should opt for core i7-based system if you want the best performance from your notebook. Extremely high-end laptops house core i9 processors but they come with a hefty price tag. 

Some vendors are providing laptops and notebooks that run on AMD’s Ryzen Mobile CPUs. If you are a gamer, you should note that Ryzen Mobile CPUs come with AMD’s own Vega graphics chipsets, which are far better than Intel’s onboard graphics.
 

RAM

Unless you are an extremely lightweight user, you should pick a notebook with at least 4 GB of RAM. 8 GB Ram is considered as a perfect choice for productivity users nowadays. 16 GB of RAM is the way to go if you’re a power user. Gamers may opt for 32 GB of RAM to have the desired gaming experience they want.
 

Storage


Many say the days of hard drives are gone and it is time to embrace SSDs. Slow and bulky HDDs, which generate both heat and noise, are not a good option for thin and light notebooks. SSDs, one the other hand, offer a lot more speed compared to HDDs. These drives also run silently and don’t add much to the weight of a notebook.

But SSDs don’t come with much capacity and these drives are more expensive than traditional HDDs. You will end up with a drive that’s either 128 GB, 256 GB, or 512 GB in size but costs more than a 1 TB or 2 TB HDD.

To find a sweet spot, many laptop manufacturers now pair a smaller SSD with a larger hard drive. This allows users to keep the OS on SSD to have the speed benefit and keep media and other data on the HDD.
 

Battery Life


The battery life of a notebook depends on many variables, such as screen brightness, screen resolution, number of applications running in the background, plus whether or not you remain connected to Wi-Fi networks or Bluetooth devices. The operating system also plays a major role in terms of determining battery life. That’s why notebook with Chrome OS tend to offer better battery life compared to those with Windows 10.

If you run multiple programs at a time, stream lots of online videos, and play high-end games or transfer lots of files over wireless network, then your battery will drain a lot sooner.

Looking at the rating of the battery in watt-hours (Wh) or milliamp-hours (mAh) is an effective way to determine battery life. The larger these figures are, the longer the battery can last.
 

Connectivity


Due to the limited room around its base, a notebook has far fewer ports than a desktop setup. Some notebooks have as few as two USB ports. In such cases, you may need to unplug one device to plug in another. Larger laptops usually have at least three USB ports, which is fine for most users. Many present-day notebooks have at least one USB 3.0 [USB 3.1 Gen 1] port for faster data transfer, which is ten times faster than USB 2.0. if possible, you should take things a step further and go for a laptop with USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, as the data transfer rate is as high as 10 Gbps.
 

You’re ready to embrace USB Type-C, Thunderbolt 3 ports offer an even better option. Thunderbolt 3 ports have a peak data transfer speed of 40 gigabits per second.
