Expanding its PC portfolio in India, Taiwanese technology major Asus has launched two laptops – VivoBook S15 (S530) and VivoBook S14 (S430) – in the country. Powered by Intel’s eighth-generation CPUs, the laptops are available in multiple configurations. While the S14 series has a starting price of Rs 54,990, the S15 line-up starts at Rs 69,990.
Both VivoBook laptops come with Asus’ ‘ErgoLift’ hinge that lifts the bottom half slightly upwards, making for a more comfortable typing experience. The S15 and S14 are available in five colors – icicle gold, firmament green, silver blue, star grey, and gun metal.
