The Vivobook S 15 is designed for users who want to enjoy an enhanced AI user experience, whether for work, study, creation, or entertainment. The laptop boasts a stunning 3K 120 Hz ASUS Lumina OLED display, a Harman Kardon-certified audio system with Dolby Atmos sound, a single-zone RGB backlit keyboard, and a super-smart touchpad with scroll gestures. The Vivobook S 15 also offers incredible portability, with a slim and light all-metal design, a high-capacity 70 Wh battery that lasts up to 18 hours, and ASUS USB-C Easy Charge for convenient charging from any source.

The Copilot+ laptop comes with a comprehensive set of I/O ports, including two USB4 ports that support fast charging, 4K external displays, and up to 40 Gbps data transfers, as well as WiFi 7 for blazing speeds up to 5.8 Gbps.

The Vivobook S 15 integrates advanced features such as Windows Studio Effects, which enhances lighting and noise removal during video calls; ASUS AiSense Camera with AI-powered Security, which enables adaptive dimming and locking; Live Captions for real-time subtitles; and Cocreator, which transforms sketches into finished artworks.

Interestingly, the laptop also features StoryCube, an ASUS-exclusive AI app that offers a smart, convenient, and powerful way to manage all digital assets, using AI assistance to sort, edit, manage, and export captured raw files

ASUS keeps it conservative, but appealing

Overall, the Vivobook S 15 looks solid for those who prefer ASUS's top-tier OLED display, ErgoSense keyboard design, and focus on being lightweight while still being powerful.

It's odd to see a 16:9 display in 2024 as the industry has gravitated to the taller 16:10, but this may be a supply issue with ASUS leaning on Samsung's more premium gaming displays for this laptop. Either way, it will be one of the best laptop screens you can get in this form factor.

The rest of the specs, including 16 or 32GB of highspeed RAM, 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, and a large assortment of ports, make this laptop ideal for creators or anyone who wants something more powerful than Dell's XPS 15 (without GPU) but much lighter with much longer battery life.

While the Vivobook S 15 is conservative in that it's a premium but traditional 15-inch clamshell, ASUS hinted at even more devices and form factors being announced in the coming weeks and months.

ASUS Vivobook S 15 (S5507) is now available for pre-order through select retailers here. Additional configurations will be available later this year.

What is an AI PC and Copilot+ PC?

Microsoft has announced a new generation of Windows PCs called Copilot+ PCs, which will feature advanced AI capabilities exclusive to Windows 11. These devices are a subcategory of AI PCs, considered to be 2nd gen, and are equipped with NPUs capable of at least 45 TOPS of power, with the first wave powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon X Series chips. Copilot+ PCs are designed to enhance AI functions built into the next version of Windows 11, offering a range of next-gen AI experiences.

Among the notable features is Recall, an AI tool that remembers everything seen and done on the computer, allowing users to search their PC using natural language. 

Other improvements include Live Caption translations for 40+ languages, Auto Super Resolution, enhanced image and text generation with Cocreator, and advanced Windows Studio Effects. The first Copilot+ PCs, including Microsoft's own Surface Pro and Surface Laptop devices, are set to launch in June, along with devices from ASUS, Acer, HP, Dell, and Lenovo.
