Hi I am Puja Thakur from India. I love writing about what interests me a lot. My love for writing has grown since those days when I start

ASUS laptops have been favorites of many people across the globe. Recently, I went to a laptop store to check what new in the market. I came across ASUS Vivobook S14 S430UN. Colorful Vivobook series launched by ASUS has really grabbed my attention. This laptop really suits the young generation who are loud, lively and bold with its bold design, light in weight which makes it portable, 3-sided NanoEdge display, ErgoLift hinge, and optional texture finish. For people who are searching for colorful laptops with beautiful design, style, and great performance, this laptop could be the best option.

Design and Built


This time ASUS has done something different from other laptop brands. With a bold design, Vivibook S14 does not annoy you with same old design rather it comes with a variety of colors and hues giving an option to choose a laptop color that suits your personality. The laptop has bold, bright and subtle colors that really impresses anyone who look at it for the first time.

When it comes to looks, VivoBook S14 doesn’t have basic laptop colors. Instead, it comes with beautiful colors that suit your personality. Available in five different colors i.e. gun metal, icicle gold, firmament green, silver blue, and star grey. I was amazed to see such color options. ASUS Vivobook S14 comes with woven texture finish which makes it soft to touch.

ErgoLift hinge features dual action and easy cooling and tilting. When I tried to hold the display at certain angles while bending the keyboard a bit. it really works great when typing. I didn't feel any discomfort at all as it really provides a great computing experience. Either you are working on short or long tasks, it provides a great comfort as you can tilt the keyboard by 3.5 degrees. Other features about it ErgoLift design is that it allows smooth airflow in the chassis which keeps the temperature inside low. Thus, Vivobook does not produce much heat as compared to other standard laptops.
When it comes to its weight, Vivobook S14 doesn't make you feel like as if you are holding something heavy. Its portable design and build do not burden you. It weighs only 1.4kg which is very lightweight even for 5 years of kids and 18mm thin. With these features, you can pack it in your backpack and easily move anywhere.
