Asus VivoBook S15
The ASUS VivoBook S15 is a mid-range performance laptop with an impressive battery life and great portability. It has been an ASUS favorite for years and now comes in a new bold design. It has textured finishes and diamond-cut edges. There are also four new colors, as well as a color-blocking Enter key.
The sleek, almost bezel-free screen of the VivoBook S15 is one of the most impressive features of this ultralight laptop. The display offers a wide range of viewing angles and incredible color reproduction. Its thin metal body is easy to carry around and weighs just over three pounds.
Other notable features of the Asus VivoBook S15 include its color-blocking design and innovative ASUS ScreenPad 2.0, which improves multitasking by intelligently fitting a wide range of apps on the 5.65-inch touchscreen. It also offers a customizable hotkeys system, which makes it easy to switch between applications and modes.
The Asus VivoBook S15 offers a great price-to-performance ratio. Its battery lasted nearly nine hours in our battery run-down test, which is much better than the LG Gram 15 and Samsung Notebook 9, which both lasted about five hours and fifteen minutes. The VivoBook S15 also features fast charging.
Although Asus has not announced whether the VivoBook S15 will feature WiFi 6, our review unit had WiFi 5 and an Intel 8265 AC. The VivoBook S15 comes with a MicroSD card reader and a micro-SD slot. We tested a 64GB Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 MicroSD card, which was found to have a 25MB/s transfer speed.
The Asus VivoBook S15 is available in different configurations, ranging from a base model of $800 to an updated model with 2021 Intel Tiger Lake processors. It comes with 16 GB of memory and a 1 TB SSD. It has a 1920×1080 OLED or regular LCD display and a microSD card slot for additional storage.
The Asus VivoBook S15 S533 comes with an integrated Intel graphics chip that’s suited for basic casual gaming. It also ships with an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics card. It scored 3917 in our benchmark test, which is below its competitors’ benchmarks.
ASUS VivoBook S15 S533 has a 10-th gen Intel Core i7-10510U processor with 12 MB of cache. Its display has a ScreenPad, and it has a touchpad. There’s also an optical drive for better imaging.
Another great aspect of the Asus VivoBook S15 is its slim design. You’ll be able to use it for a full day of work. It has a screen with an IPS panel and 56% sRGB color gamut. Its keyboard features good key spacing and only 1.4mm of travel.
Lenovo Ideapad 330 and Acer Swift 3
The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 is a good laptop for everyday use, but it’s not as premium as some of its competitors. It lacks many of the features of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, but is above average for the price.
The Lenovo 330-15IKB has a 15.6-inch display with a native 1920×1080 resolution and a contrast ratio of 464:1. It’s not exactly a beast, but it’s certainly better than most modern laptops. Unfortunately, the Lenovo 330-15IKB’s display is a TN panel, which tends to be less vibrant than IPS panels. The result is a dull display and low vision.
If you’re looking for a new business laptop, Lenovo’s IdeaPad 330-15IKB is a good choice. It features an AMD Radeon 530 GPU and Intel Core i5 processor. The IdeaPad 330-15IKB is Lenovo’s reference model, and comes with a wide variety of configurations.
The Swift 3 SF315-41G is an excellent multimedia all-rounder from Acer. It runs a 64-bit version of Windows 10 Home Basic, and weighs 2.19kg. It also has an SD card reader, USB 30 and 20 slots, and plugs for a microphone and headphones.
Both laptops have their pros and cons. The Lenovo Ideapad 330 has a better battery life, faster RAM, and a fingerprint scanner. While the Acer Swift 3 is a gaming laptop, the Lenovo Ideapad 330 is a solid choice for everyday use.
In a multithread benchmark, the IdeaPad 330-15IKB runs at 3.1 GHz. It does the same well in single and multitasking tests. It also performs very well in battery life and network. This makes it an ideal budget notebook.
The IdeaPad 330 has a 15.6-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution. It has a backlight and a decent trackpad. It is thin and lightweight, making it ideal for most users. Its screen also has a 1080×1920 resolution, which is much better than the other options in this price range.
Despite a 15.6-inch display, the Acer Swift 3 SF315-41G is a powerful laptop that comes with great processing power. The laptop comes with specialised graphics for gaming, and is powered by a Ryzen 5 2500U APU. With a base clock speed of 2GHz, this notebook is fast and smooth. It also boasts a Bluetooth and HDMI port.
The 330 revision of the Lenovo IdeaPad does not come with a DVD drive. However, it comes with a dummy DVD drive, an adapter and mounting hardware. The drive is very easy to install and has enough space for most users.
The Swift 3 has a higher CPU speed than the Aspire 5, but the Aspire 5 has a 3.5 GHz CPU. However, the Swift 3 has more memory and a faster hard drive. The swift 3 has a 256 GB hard drive whereas the Aspire 5 comes with 128 GB. The Swift 3 is also lighter than the Aspire 5. If you’re looking for a lightweight laptop, the Swift 3 is the best option.
