ASUS made sure that the new Vivobooks don’t look boring and bland.  They put color blocking design to make the primary colors of the laptop pop out  by mixing bright and bold colors. These laptops are available in Firmament Green, Star Grey, Silver Blue, Gun Metal, and Icicle Gold. Firmament Green features a textured woven finish surrounding the keyboard, while Icicle Gold sports a brushed finish with diamond-inspired motifs. 

Vivobook’s S15 and S14’s display is another feature worth mentioning. Its three-sided NanoEdge display puts users to immersive viewing experience thanks to the narrow top and side edges. This gives S15 an 86% screen-to-body ratio, and S14 an 84% screen-to-body ratio for unrivaled immersion in a much more compact package.
