ASUS ‘VivoBook series is marketed as youth devices that are in the middle price range, but can offer good performance.
For example, the ASUS VivoBook S15 S533FL offers for a reasonable price: thin bezels, which were previously found mainly only inexpensive models, an IPS matrix, and a matte display with wide viewing angles, tenth generation Intel Core processors and an NVIDIA MX250 graphics card.
Added to all this are up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of PCle drives, and Intel Optane H10 technology, which accelerates application loading.
ASUS VivoBook S15 S533FL Features
The S15 S533FL supports both Wi-Fi 5 (802.11n) and the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax).
The new standard provides the speed many times higher, and the latency has decreased by 75%. Also, the laptop has Bluetooth 5.0.
There is nowhere without thin frames – it is pleasant to work with them, watch movies, and the device itself becomes smaller in size.
Thanks to the NanoEdge display, the screen ratio is 86% at 15’6 inches.
Portability and fast charging
The S15 S533FL weighs 1.8 kg and is 1.6 cm thick. This makes it one of the lightest and most compact 15’6-inch notebooks on the market.
There is a full set of connectors. But in the matter of portability, the battery is just as important – its duration and charging speed.
The laptop lasts 6 hours, but its trump card is fast charging technology. From 0 to 60%, the model is able to charge in just 49 minutes.
In other words, in half an hour, the device will already be half charged.
ASUS VivoBook S15 S533FL
ASUS VivoBook S15 S533FL with its design resembles the first ZenBook’i, which many people liked so much in their time.
Anodized beveled edges make the notebook look even thinner and easier to open the lid. There are 4 colors to choose from: black, green, red, and white.
With them, you stand out in the crowd, which is perfect for creative and bright personalities. And to complement the individuality of the owner, such cool stickers are included in the kit:
The case of the laptop is metal, the surface is textured – suitable for applying stickers, as in the photo above. Nice to the touch. The lid has a stylish logo of the company and the line.
The keyboard is equipped with a three-stage backlight. It is very bright, but due to the matte letters, it does not hit the eyes.
Thanks to the competent arrangement of a large number of LEDs, it is uniform, there are no differences in brightness.
The engraving is clear and the buttons travel 1.4 mm deep. The digital block, aka NumPad, is in place.
The touchpad is ordinary, depending on the configuration it can be equipped with a fingerprint scanner.
Classic layout, compact. It seems nothing special, but ASUS’s attention to detail can be traced in the Enter button – it is the only one with a yellow outline. In print work, this saves you from mischief.
In addition to thin bezels, the NanoEdge display is equipped with a Full-HD IPS matrix that covers up to 100% of the sRGB color space.
The matte finish prevents objects and light rays from reflecting, and the wide viewing angles of 178 degrees allow you to view it from any angle.
At the maximum brightness level, the S15 S533FL display allows you to work comfortably in high light conditions.
Above the screen in the center is a webcam with HD resolution. The bitrate is good, there were no brakes – it is not a shame to use it for video communication.
On the left side, the user will find an audio jack, USB-C 3.2 Gen 1, USB 3.2 Gen 1, HDMI, and a power connector, and on the right side, there are two USB 2.0 and a slot for MicroSD cards.
The audio system with Harman Kardon certification is of high quality: the sound, albeit not very loud, is quite clear and rich, and in some places, it seems to be voluminous.
