Thoughtful design

The eye-catching Vivobook Classic laptops are never ordinary, with a clean geometric design featuring the raised Vivobook logo tag on the lid, a warning-striped Enter key and a choice of two on-trend colors: Indie Black or Cool Silver. The laptops are slim enough to pop unobtrusively into a backpack, and light enough to never be a burden.

The precision-engineered, lay-flat 180° hinges make it easy to share content with others, or collaborate with a group of people around a table. The webcam has a convenient physical shield that instantly blanks the image in video calls for enhanced privacy and security. There’s also an optional fingerprint sensor on the touchpad for fast password-free login via Windows Hello.

The full-size ASUS ErgoSense keyboard has a 19.05 mm key pitch, a 0.2 mm key-cap dish, and long 1.4 mm key travel that gives it an incredibly satisfying feel, with the optimum bounce and travel calculated with fine-tuned precision.

With a full set of I/O ports, it’s easier than ever for users to connect their existing peripherals, displays and projectors. In addition to a USB-C® 3.2 Gen 1 port with power delivery, there are two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a USB 2.0 port, HDMI® output and a convenient 3.5 mm audio combo jack.

To keep the laptops hygienic and reduce the spread of harmful viruses and bacteria, frequently-touched surfaces on the new laptops are treated with ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus, which is scientifically proven to inhibit the growth of viruses and bacteria — including COVID-19 and influenza viruses — by more than 99% over a 24-hour period.

Vivobook Classic series laptops are bundled with a free one month subscription to Adobe® Creative Cloud®, along with a collection of easy-to-use productivity-enhancing ASUS apps, including GlideX for cross-device screen sharing; MyASUS for easy access to updates, apps, customer service and performance optimization; and ScreenXpert for easy multi-display management.

The new Vivobook Classic series laptops are packed with class-leading features that make video and voice conferencing smoother and more enjoyable. The HD webcam includes ASUS 3DNR video-processing technology that makes video feeds clearer, and there’s a convenient physical webcam shield for instant privacy.

To provide exceptional remote-working and video-conferencing experiences, all models feature ASUS AI noise-canceling technology that employs machine learning in order to isolate unwanted noise from human speech. This technology helps to filter out ambient noise for optimum group conference-call quality.

Sustainable and durable

The ASUS commitment to protecting the earth while delivering the best products to its users is reflected in the design of the Vivobook Classic series. Packaging is now 100% recyclable, and the laptops’ energy consumption has been reduced to outperform the ENERGY STAR power-efficiency standard by up to 30%.

A longer laptop lifespan also reduces long-term waste, so Vivobook Classic series laptops are strictly tested to ensure its durability, using the latest MIL-STD-810H US military-grade standard, with up to 12 test methods and 26 individual tests — the industry’s most stringent testing regime.
