    Las Vegas, Nevada (January 6, 2020) - ASUS today introduced its latest lineup of VivoBook and ZenBook laptops at CES 2020, including the VivoBook S (S333/S433/S533, S513/S413), VivoBook 14 (F413), VivoBook 15 (F513) and the innovative 14-inch dual-screen ZenBook Duo (UX481). Engineered for everyone from digitally-driven professionals to everyday users, this latest lineup pairs sleek and expressive aesthetics with cutting-edge performance powered by the most up-to-date 10th Generation Intel® processors, optional NVIDIA® graphics and next-gen connectivity with WiFi 6. VivoBook and ZenBook-series users can also take productivity one step further with the included MyASUS software, providing seamless integration between mobile devices and ASUS laptops.

    Premium performance and looks with the VivoBook S-series laptops

    The newest ASUS VivoBook S notebooks strike the perfect balance between personality and performance, and the models that debuting at CES 2020 carry on the tradition. Finished in a variety of bold colors, the latest VivoBook S-series laptops feature 10th Gen Intel Core processors that’s perfect for multitasking and high-definition entertainment, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity for significantly improved performance in congested environments, up to 16GB of RAM, a choice between Intel integrated graphics or latest NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and an updated chassis across 13”, 14”, and 15” size classes that offers a slim bezel with a NanoEdge display.

    To celebrate a new decade, the VivoBook S lineup (S333/S433/S533) is debuting new colors: Resolute Red is a bold color that will smolder on any desk, while Gaia Green is a softer color inspired by nature. Dreamy White exudes sophistication and sets off the notebook’s accents. Finally, Indie Black makes a powerful statement with the contrast between its shadowy finish and bright display. With the VivoBook 14 (S413) and VivoBook 15 (S513) models, users can express their unique personality with one of three striking finishes: Indie Black, Hearty Gold, or Transparent Silver. Whatever color it’s dressed in, the updated VivoBook S-series precision-crafted all-metal chassis is not only sturdy and light, but a delight to hold with diamond-cut edges. The VivoBook S lineup also includes unique yellow color-blocked Enter key that adds a bit of flair and aesthetic to each model.

    With its 15.6-inch display, the VivoBook S15 offers the most screen space in a compact footprint, so it is the most practical choice for those who tend to multitask with two or more active windows on the screen at any given time. The VivoBook S13 is a traveler’s dream, made to keep up users wherever they go with a 14.9mm thin profile and weight of 2.6lbs. The VivoBook S14 is a great all-around size for a wide variety of users with a 14-inch display and weighing in at 3lbs. For frequent numpad users, variants of the S13 and S14 include the optional ASUS NumberPad 2.0, a touchpad that can do double duty as a touch-sensitive numpad for quick data entry. In addition, for a better typing experience on all three models, each VivoBook S offers larger keycaps than average for easy, comfortable, and accurate input.
