Asus released Vivobook S510
If you like premium design laptops but don’t have the budget, then consider yourself blessed. Asus has released their new VivoBook S510. It features a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor and is designed to look nearly identical to the MacBook Air.
The design is based on plastic with aluminum bezel designs. This gives the device a a more upper class feel. The device looks elegant and really sleek.
The highlight of this laptop is its display. It features a ‘NanoEdge’ display that’s nearly bezel-less. NanoEdge bezel provides the laptop with an impressive 80-percent screen-to-body ratio. According to the company website, with the use of this display, the Asus Vivobook S is able to fit a full-size 15.6-inch display into a 14-inch laptop frame. On top of that, the laptop weighs only 3.3 pounds. That’s pretty impressive if you ask me.
The laptop features a seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor and runs on Windows 10; not Windows 10 s; which doesn’t let you install any third party apps and programs.
Here’s a quick rundown of the specs:
- 6-inch Full HD, 1920 x 1280 display
