Asus updates their VivoBook line-up of thin-and-lights with the new VivoBook 14 (A413) that is now more powerful than ever, with a 10th Generation Intel U-series Processor at its heart and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce graphics processor for better-than-integrated graphical performance, all packed into a slim chassis that won’t break your bank or your back.
ASUS VivoBook 14
Housed in a sturdy plastic chassis, the VivoBook 14 is designed to be affordable yet sporting colours that can be unassuming or outright popping for their younger target audience. It also borrows design elements from its more expensive sibling, the VivoBook S, and has a FHD display with three-sided NanoEdge bezel measuring 5.7mm and as a result, an 84-% screen-to-body ratio for an immersive viewing experience. The whole package is only 19.9mm thin and weighs only 1.4KGs, making it ultraportable and not to troublesome to haul around.
ASUS’s latest VivoBook offering comes packing a 10th Generation Intel Core i5-10210U processor with 4-cores and 8 processing threads paired with 4GBs of DDR4 RAM to provide enough processing power for the average daily use. The discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX330 graphics processor is capable enough for light gaming on the side and a smooth entertainment experience when needed. Storage is handled by a 512GB NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD offering plenty of fast storage, while networking is managed by an Intel WiFi 6-capable chip that is thrice as fast as the last generation while cutting latency by 75%.
The VivoBook 14 also comes equipped with many more features to ensure productivity on the go. A backlit chiclet-style keyboard allows for unimpaired typing even in lowlight situations and a promised comfortable typing experience with a one-piece construction and a 1.4mm key travel distance. The laptop also comes with two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, one Type A and the other Type C, besides a pair of USB 2.0 Type A ports, a HDMI 1.4 port and a microSD card reader so connections with peripherals can be done easily.
