ASUS Debuts Vivobook S 15 With First Qualcomm CPU & Offline Copilot Features

ASUS is on a roll, as it charges up for yet another revolutionary laptop, the Vivobook S 15, which will feature the tech giant’s first Qualcomm CPU as well as running Copilot+ offline. Previously, the Vivobook S 16 was ASUS’ first AI PC with a dedicated Copilot key, but the S 15 takes it to a whole new level.

The grand reveal comes just after Microsoft announced Copilot+, which will see the AI tool built directly into PCs, enabling users to use the generative AI software without an internet connection. What sets the Vivobook S 15 apart from most PCs in the market is that it is the first to hit 75 TOPs and is powered by the Snapdragon X Elite with built-in Qualcomm Hexagon NPU, processing data in the blink of an eye.

Featuring a stunning 3K 120 Hz ASUS Lumina OLED display, Harman Kardon-certified audio, and a sleek 14.7 mm-thin, 1.42 kg-light body, the Vivobook S 15 is built for quality productivity, and whether it’s gaming or for work, renders images and programmes in glorious detail.

Being an AI PC, it also comes with several new features such as Windows Studio Effects v2, which enhances lighting and noise removal during video calls in portrait mode, and an AiSense Camera with AI-powered Security, enabling the adaptive lock feature to detect a user’s presence.

Like the S 16, it has a dedicated Copilot+ key, which makes accessing AI features convenient with just the press of a button, and works without an Internet connection, unlike other current Copilot key models.

And if you need to connect several devices to the laptop, it boasts two USB 4 ports that support fast charging, 4K external displays, and up to 40 Gbps data transfers, along with two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.1 port, a microSD card reader, and an audio combo jack.

Styled with a single-zone RGB backlit keyboard complete with customisable lighting effects, you can set the mood with the laptop’s Dynamic Lighting feature. The best part? Its 18-hour battery life ensures you’ll be able to work on the go, boasting a high-capacity 70 Wh battery.

“As ASUS embarks on this journey, marked by the launch of our first AI PC, we stand at the beginning of a new era of personal computing.” ASUS Co-CEO S.Y. Hsu said, speaking at the event. “The launch of our first ASUS Copilot+ PC powered by Snapdragon X Elite is an important milestone for us, and we believe that these devices are the future of consumer PCs and will drastically change the way we will work, study, create, and play.”

The ASUS Vivobook S 15 retails for S$2,199 and will be available at the ASUS Exclusive Store, online, and all other retailers on 5 July 2024, with pre-orders currently open.
