The VivoBook S 16X is the ideal laptop for professionals or students looking for a powerful, portable device. Enjoy smoother, longer typing sessions and a crisp clear display wrapped up in a thin and sleek chassis. 

This Windows laptop is the perfect professional companion and offers more straightforward and more secure logins with Windows Hello for fingerprint scans or facial recognition, cutting out the need to enter your password every time you start up the device. Plus, you’ll be typing on the ErgoSense keyboard which has subtly dish-shaped keycaps and longer key travel ensuring comfortable typing for long periods.

While this may be the ideal laptop for a working professional, students will definitely enjoy the benefits of the Asus VivoBook S 16X too, particularly at this sale price. It offers the same basic functionality you’d want from any laptop, but it’s thin and light enough to throw into any backpack or tote bag, run most programs, and store all your photos and files in one place without worrying about storage. Students would also appreciate the Intel Iris Xe graphics that’ll make any film, comfort show, or Youtube video essay super crisp and colorful.
