Asus VivoBook S15 review

 

The Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ is a 15-inch laptop that is light, slim and attractive - and it's not too expensive either.

Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ (i5-7200U, 940MX) Laptop Review

Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ review: Attractive price and core spec, but battery life is a worry

 

When a 15.6-inch laptop with a 7th-generation Core i7 processor becomes available for well under £1,000, it catches the eye. When that laptop boasts a narrow screen bezel and brushed metal finish, it gets a second glance. However, it's unlikely that a...

Core i7 CPU and discrete GPU ; Compact chassis for a 15.6-inch laptop ; Competitive price

Moderate battery life ; Too much keyboard flex ; Only 256GB of internal storage ; VGA webcam
