Product Overview Colours that Match Your Vibe
If there was ever a laptop that represents who you are, it’s the youthful and vivacious ASUS VivoBook Series. The new VivoBook S14 adds a dash of personality to your mobile lifestyle, featuring a bold new lightweight design with unique colour combinations, a choice of textured finishes, and the innovative three-sided NanoEdge display and ErgoLift hinge. Like every other VivoBook before it, S14 offers a combination of performance, style, and comfort to help you get the job done, wherever you are.

A Unique Touch
With VivoBook S14, it’s the little details that count. It has five unique colour options, with Firmament Green featuring a special woven-textured finish surrounding the keyboard that feels great to the touch.

Give Yourself a Lift
Open up VivoBook S14 for a world of productivity and possibilities. Its precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge has a silky-smooth dual action that holds the display securely at any angle, and slightly tilts the keyboard up by 3.5° to give you a perfect typing position every time. The ErgoLift hinge also improves cooling for a stable computing experience.

Tilt Up for Better Typing and Cooling
The ErgoLift hinge makes long typing stints that much more comfortable. This unique design automatically tilts the keyboard by 3.5° to create the familiar feel of a desktop keyboard. The ErgoLift design also opens up extra ventilation space for more airflow around the underside of the chassis to keep internal temperatures lower than standard laptops.

Lighten the Load
VivoBook S14 is the ultraportable that doesn’t weigh you down. Ultrathin and light, simply slip S14 into your messenger bag or backpack, and away you go!

See More, Do More
The new NanoEdge display on VivoBook S14 continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible — the new three-sided NanoEdge display now has an even narrower bezel along the top and sides of the display. This results in an 84% screen-to-body ratio that provides unrivalled immersion in a much more compact package. And when you throw wide viewing angles and exceptional colour reproduction into the mix, every visual task is made easier. Entertainment is simply more awesome with S14!

Superbly Optimised Colour
With ASUS Splendid visual-optimisation technology, you’ll see the very best images possible, whatever the content. Its four one-click preset display modes make it easy to use, too. Normal mode is ideal for daily tasks; Vivid mode optimises contrast to deliver stunning photos and videos; Eye Care mode reduces blue-light levels by up to 30% to ease eye strain; and Manual mode lets you make personalised colour adjustments.

Ultra-Realistic Visuals, Just for You
ASUS Tru2Life Video is an exclusive video enhancement technology that’s similar to technologies found in many high-end TVs. It uses intelligent software algorithms to optimise the sharpness and contrast of every video frame, so videos look clearer, more detailed and more realistic. This can improve the contrast by up to 150%, bringing out hidden detail in dark areas while keeping bright areas as brilliant as ever!

Making Everything Possible
Your future is what you make of it, and VivoBook S14 has the tools to help you every step of the way. With an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor at your disposal, you’re ready for what lies ahead, be it productive multitasking, multimedia editing, or casual gaming.

In the Blink of an Eye
The dual-storage design of VivoBook S14 gives you the best of both worlds: the blistering data speeds of an SSD and the large capacities offered by an HDD. Install apps on the SSD for superfast load times, and use the HDD to store photo albums, music, and movies. Specify your VivoBook S14 with a fast, silent and reliable SSD for a drastic improvement in overall performance and near-instant boot-up times.

Reinventing the Touchpad
VivoBook S14 brings great news for spreadsheet warriors! On the Gun Metal version you’ll find the amazing new NumberPad: just a tap on the special touchpad icon to turn the touchpad into an LED-illuminated numeric keypad — perfect for crunching those figures!

Be Free
Step out of your workstation and into the future — whether at home, a quaint downtown café, or the airport — your office is wherever you choose it to be. VivoBook S14 boasts the latest wireless networking features and ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology to give you faster and more reliable connections at greater distances than ever before. Even when you’re using USB 3.0 devices — which can be a source of wireless interference — you can still stream smoothly even when S14 is 225 meters or more away from the router, that’s 65 meters further than the range of standard laptops!

Set an Inspirational Tone
ASUS SonicMaster is a combination of hardware, software and audio tuning designed with the goal of giving you the very best audio experience. A professional-grade codec ensures precise audio encoding and decoding; while amplifiers, large speakers and resonance chambers perfectly suited to VivoBook S14 ensure a powerful audio delivery and deeper bass. Additional signal processing and tuning help refine minute details, filter noise and improve audio clarity so you get truly immersive sound.

Maximising Your Potential
VivoBook S14 has a wide range of features designed to keep you productive throughout the day. It features a full-size backlit keyboard for a comfortable typing experience, and a fingerprint sensor that’s integrated into the touchpad for fast and secure login. A USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) port ensures superfast data transfer speeds, while a fast-charging feature helps recharge a low battery to 60% in just 49 minutes.

One-Touch Windows Hello Login
Accessing your ASUS VivoBook S14 has never been easier or more secure. With the built-in fingerprint sensor in the touchpad and Windows Hello, there’s no need to type in your password every time to log in — just a single touch is all it takes!

Exactly Your Type
The full-size backlit keyboard on VivoBook S14 is perfect for working in dim environments. Ergonomically-designed, its sturdy, one-piece construction and 1.4mm key travel provide a comfortable typing experience.

Easier Access to Hardware Controls
Attention to every useful detail is a key part of the ASUS design philosophy. We’ve introduced an evolutionary new way of using the humble Fn key to access your laptop’s features, such as the volume or display brightness. In the past, you’d press the Fn key first to use these features: now, the function keys operate the advanced features by default. If you want to access the standard function keys (F1-F12) simply use the Fn key combination.

Connecting the Possibilities
VivoBook S14 is equipped with the reversible USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) port, featuring an any-way-up design to make connecting devices as easy as possible. It also delivers data transfer speeds that are up to 10x faster than older USB 2.0 connections! You also get USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and a microSD card reader — so you can easily connect all your current peripherals, displays and projectors with zero hassle.

Keeping You Productive, All Day Long
VivoBook S14 keeps you going for longer. It features a high-quality battery with all-day battery life and a lifespan that’s 3x longer than standard lithium-ion batteries. Fast-charging technology also lets you charge a low battery to 60% in just 49 minutes. Integrated ASUS Battery Health Charging technology also makes for a safer charging experience, with measures designed to decrease the battery expansion rate during charging to help ensure the battery stays in good condition.
