Asus VivoBook S Series Thin and Light Laptop Launched

ASUS launched the ASUS Vivobook S series of thin and light high-performance laptops that includes the 14.5-inch Vivobook S 14X OLED (S5402) the 16-inch Vivobook S 16X (S5602), and the 14-inch Vivobook S 14 OLED (K3402).

These ultra-modern laptops feature metal lids for the S 14 model or an all-metal construction for the premium S 14X/16X models. The all-new chassis design makes a real style statement, with a choice of youthful new colors and a raised logo tab on the lid.

High-performance components include up to 12th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 H-Series CPUs, along with Intel Iris® Xe graphics, upgradable 16 GB DDR4 RAM and fast 512 GB PCIe® SSD. Vivobook S series laptops are some of the first thin and light laptops in their class capable of CPU performance up to a groundbreaking 45-watt thermal design power (TDP). This achievement is enabled by exclusive ASUS IceCool thermal technology that efficiently accelerates heat transfer and prevents throttling.

The Vivobook S series laptops use world-class OLED NanoEdge displays with resolutions of up to 4K and response times as low as 0.2 ms, and they also feature 14-inch and 2.8K 120 Hz OLED panels. These displays have a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and are PANTONE® Validated for color accuracy. SGS and TÜV Rheinland low blue-light certification ensures eye comfort during long viewing sessions.

User-friendly design is a key feature of the Vivobook S series, with a convenient lay-flat 180° hinges for versatility. For easy connectivity, there’s a wide range of I/O ports including two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports, along with USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, HDMI® 2.0 and an audio combo jack. The powerful Harman Kardon-certified audio system includes ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Technology for crystal-clear communications. A physical webcam shield and ASUS 3DNR technology make conference calls safer and clearer.
