I've been looking for a laptop computer and this was a good day to test out a new laptop computer from our friends at ASUS. This is the new ASUS VivoBook S14, one of the few laptop computers that is equipped by an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1065G7 Processor.

I have decided to do an unboxing video for it, so please indulge! 

This is equipped with an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX350 and an Intel® Iris Plus Graphics card. It also comes in different colorways namely Indie Black, Gaia Green, Resolute Red, Dreamy White. I love this one the most because I can stay in my monochrome palette (see my blog is also monochrome haha) and I can just jazz it up with stickers later so it would match my personality. It actually also comes with several stickers on the box and I was happy with the choices.

The screen has a frameless NanoEdge look with an 85% screen-to-body ratio. I'm gonna be able to have more space in it to put files when I do decide it's time to have a messy deskptop screen lol. Currently, this has a 500 Gig SSD drive and it's apt enough for office work or school. I would suggest you get a separate drive if you're planning to use this for creating videos as that might not be sufficient for HD or 4K quality. I can carry it but if you're the type who archives these things, that might be the solution. I also like the fact that I can transfer files, video and photos as it still has full I/O ports which includes USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C®, USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, 2 USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI, an Audio combo jack, a MicroSD card reader and a DC-in for the power. The connection utilizes an Intel Wi-Fi 6 with Gig+ which means it employs the 802.11ax standard. They really took time to put technology here.

This weighs nice at 1.4kg, I could easily pick it up and change spots with one hand while I carry around my bag with the other. Imagine how that applies in a coffee shop, it'll be easy anywhere.

Honestly, I haven't had the chance to use this for gaming but with recent checks, this can do Valorant, Genshin Impact, GTA5 too which I plan to do in the next few weeks. Overall, this impresses me most with how it can handle common office tasks, pretty fast in fact and that's what I do currently. Actually, I finished this blog post in a few minutes because of it, isn't that a good thing?

Watch out for more tests, see you on the next one!
