The Harman Kardon-certified Dolby Atmos audio system, which uses a smart amplifier for strong, distortion-free sound, creates an immersive, multi-dimensional entertainment experience in the Vivobook Pro series laptops. The FHD webcam with ASUS 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR) technology enables crystal-clear video chats.
Vivobook S Series
The Vivobook S series laptops are the thinnest and lightest in the Vivobook family, with chassis profiles as thin as 17.9 mm and weighing as little as 1.6 kg, yet they offer performance levels normally associated with much larger models. The Vivobook are among the world’s first thin and light laptops capable of 45 W TDP CPU performance.
The Vivobook S series lineup comprises:
- 14.5″ Vivobook S 14X OLED (S5402/M5402)
- 16″ Vivobook S 16X OLED (S5602/M5602)

The Vivobook S series laptops are among the first to offer CPU performance up to a ground-breaking 45-watt thermal design power (TDP). This results in Cinebench R20 benchmark performance that is up to 2.1 times better than the previous generation. This breakthrough is made possible by ASUS IceCool thermal technology, which efficiently increases heat transfer while preventing throttling.
The Vivobook S series laptops include the 14.5-inch and 15.6-inch 2.8K 120 Hz OLED panels, as well as world-class OLED NanoEdge displays with resolutions up to 4K and reaction times as low as 0.2 ms.

Low blue-light certification from TÜV Rheinland ensures eye comfort during long viewing periods.
The Vivobook S series is distinguished by its user-friendly design, which has lay-flat 180° hinges for adaptability. ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Technology is included in the Harman Kardon-certified audio system for crystal-clear communications. Conference calls are safer and clearer with a physical camera shield and ASUS 3DNR technology.
