ASUS has announced the release of its VivoBook Series, mainstream 14- and 15-inch laptops, which are the X441 and X541 series, designed for immersive entertainment and daily productivity.
VivoBook Series laptops are powered by up to 6th-generation Intel Core processors, and feature up to discrete NVIDIA GeForce graphics and 16GB RAM.
The laptops have ASUS SonicMaster-enhanced 3W transmission-line speakers with 24cc audio chambers for truly powerful audio delivery, an ergonomic keyboard with 2.3mm key travel, and a large touchpad with palm-rejection technology. These lightweight, portable laptops are available in Silver Gradient, Chocolate Brown, Red, White, and Aqua Blue.
Announcing the devices, Nigeria Country Product Manager, ASUS, Simplice Zaongo, states that, “VivoBook Series laptops are mainstream models designed to give users a high-end multimedia experience. The ASUS SonicMaster-enhanced 3W transmission-line speakers with 24cc audio chambers deliver rich deep bass and immersive audio, while ASUS AudioWizard provides five preset audio modes for different kinds of content.”
ASUS Tru2Life video technology optimizes the contrast and sharpness of every pixel in every video frame for incredibly realistic visuals with rich detail. ASUS Splendid features four modes – Normal, Eye Care, Vivid, and Manual – to cater to users’ requirements, and optimizes visuals for richer and deeper colors. Normal mode is ideal for daily computing tasks. Eye Care mode reduces blue light by up to 33 per cent to protect users’ eyes. Vivid mode enhances image color, contrast and sharpness for livelier visuals, and Manual mode lets users adjust and save their preferred color temperature settings,” he added.
ASUS VivoBook X Series laptops feature a seamless one-piece chiclet keyboard with 2.3mm of key travel — the same as higher-end or gaming-grade laptops — for no key float and a more responsive typing feel. Accurate and intuitive navigation is ensured by the large touchpad, which supports ASUS Precise Touch Pad (PTP) multi-touch gestures so users can pinch-zoom in and out, or scroll and swipe pages easily. The touchpad also has intelligent palm-rejection technology that automatically recognizes and rejects accidental palm presses.
Designed for everyday productivity and entertainment, ASUS VivoBook Series laptops are powered by up to a 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, and feature up to discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® 920M graphics with 16GB DDR4 RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD). ASUS-exclusive SuperBatt technology gives VivoBook Series laptops three times (3X) the battery life cycle of conventional laptop batteries.
