The Asus Vivobook S also supports fast charging, where users can get from 0 to 60 percent in just 49 minutes. Overall the Asus Vivobook S for its price is a great laptop. Though if you are someone who needs a lot of power. Then we recommend waiting for the Pro version of the Vivobook from Asus. As the laptop comes equipped with an Nvidia GTX 1050 inside, with either 2 GB or 4 GB of VRAM on board. That would be great for both work and gaming at the same time.
