ASUS Announces VivoBook S13 (S330)

    Compact, lightweight 13-inch laptop with new four-side frameless NanoEdge display, powered by up to an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics

    TAIPEI, Taiwan, August 15, 2018 — ASUS today announced VivoBook S13 (S330), the first ASUS laptop to feature the four-side frameless NanoEdge display that offers a remarkable 89% screen-to-body ratio for an immersive, near-borderless viewing experience. This compact and lightweight 13.3-inch laptop is powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor with NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 discrete graphics. VivoBook S13 includes the ErgoLift hinge to replicate the feel of a desktop keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience. This latest addition to the VivoBook S series is designed for the young at heart and has three gorgeous color options for users to truly express themselves.

    Unrivaled immersion with the four-sided frameless NanoEdge display

    VivoBook S13 is the first ASUS notebook to feature the new four-sided frameless NanoEdge display with super-thin top and side bezels that measure a mere 4.3mm. This results in an incredible 89% screen-to-body ratio for unrivaled immersion in a much more compact package. VivoBook S13 is one of the smallest 13.3-inch laptops in the market, since the NanoEdge design allows ASUS engineers to fit a 13-inch display into a typical 11-inch laptop chassis. The FHD panel includes wide-view technology and remarkable color reproduction for lifelike visuals, even when viewing the display from extreme positions. To complete the audiovisual experience, VivoBook S13 features ASUS SonicMaster technology for exceptional sound. A professional-grade codec ensures precise audio encoding and decoding, while amplifiers, larger speakers and resonance chambers perfectly tailored for VivoBook S13 ensure powerful audio delivery and deeper bass.

    Small, yet powerful

    VivoBook S13 is powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16GB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 discrete graphics to make light work of multitasking, multimedia editing or casual gaming. It can also be specified with up to a 512GB SSD for superfast data access. Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi provides data speeds of up to 867Mbps — 6X faster than 802.11n — for seamless video-streaming and smooth web-surfing experiences. In addition, VivoBook S13 also features Bluetooth® 4.2.

    A combination of style and ergonomic design

    VivoBook S13 is one of the world’s smallest 13-inch laptops, with compact dimensions — it measures just 305.8 x 196.3 x 17.9mm — and an overall weight of just 1.2kg. It features an aluminum construction and is available in three eye-catching color options: Icicle Gold, Rose Gold, and Transparent Silver.

The hinge also opens up extra ventilation space for more airflow around the underside of the chassis for improved cooling.
