The VivoBook S510 is sized 15.6-inches and the waistline is around 0.7 inches. The reason we call it a lightweight machine is because it weighs only 3.3 pounds. The best part is that out of 15.6 inches size, the company has tried to make full use of the space eliminating extra bezels and providing the maximum screen to body ratio. The bezels limited to 7.8mm make it the “NanoEdge display” which the company calls it.
