Asus VivoBook S15 review: This cheaper 15-inch laptop looks good, weighs less

 

The $800 S15 base model is very mainstream on the inside, but if you're looking for a big screen and less weight, it's worth a look.

The Asus VivoBook S15 puts a big 15.6-inch screen in an ultraportable body starting at a reasonable price. It has a spacious backlit keyboard, a responsive precision touchpad with a built-in fingerprint reader and nice-sounding stereo speakers. It's...

Battery life is brief compared with its competitors.

The Asus VivoBook S15 makes a good coffee shop laptop for those who want a bigger screen. Just make sure to pick a table near an outlet.
