ASUS outs Zen 2 Ryzen-powered VivoBook S14 M433

ASUS is adding another notebook to their VivoBook division with the VivoBook S14 M433. Their latest notebook sports the new AMD Ryzen 4000 series based on the Zen 2 architecture allowing for faster processing speeds and longer battery life compared to previous Ryzen-based notebooks.

The ASUS VivoBook S14 M433 can be decked with either an AMD Ryzen 7 4700U or an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U both of which have Vega 8 graphics. Regardless of processor choice, the notebook will come with 8GB of DDR4 RAM running at 2666MHz and a 512GB PCIe SSD.

Its screen is a 14.0-inch IPS 1920 x 1080 display with an 85% screen-to-body ratio. Although there are laptops with thinner bezels out in the market, ASUS is able to minimize the side bezels to just 5.7mm. It also has a rather thin profile at just 15.9mm and is relatively light weighing in at 1.4kg.

The ASUS VivoBook S14 M433 comes with a 50Wh lithium-polymer battery in order to be used on-the-go. ASUS says that charging takes around 49 minutes to achieve 60% from empty. If you want a longer battery lifespan, ASUS also allows you to choose from three different charging modes from full capacity to maximum lifespan mode.
