Also, check out our full review of the VivoBook S15 S531F here. This laptop has so much style points in it that the specs sheet doesn’t do this laptop any justice. So I urge you, head on over to the review post and have a read.

Review – ASUS VivoBook S15 S531F (i5-8265U, MX250, 4GB DDR4-2400, 512GB NVMe SSD)

The VivoBook S15 here is meant for those who want a laptop that is affordable yet colorful (remember, inspired by color-blocking) and also comes with an Intel Core i5-8265U processor with an NVIDIA GeForce MX250. This means that it is able to do some creative work – and that’s great.

The VivoBook S14, on the other hand, is made for those who want a laptop that is powerful enough in terms of CPU and speed – like a large Excel sheet and whatnot. And yes, also comes with multiple colors too.
