Need a new laptop for back to school? Certain models like MacBooks, Galaxy Books or Zenbooks often exceed the 1000 euro mark, which is not good for finances between inflation and the holidays. But there are several high-performance references at good value for money like this Asus Vivobook S15 normally sold at 599.99 euros. Currently, it is available for only 479.99 euros at Carrefour.
In the laptop market, Asus stands out thanks to two ranges: the Zenbook and the Vivobook. The former are located in the high-end segment and feature a particularly thin chassis which embeds the most powerful components while the latter make a few concessions to bring prices down. This does not prevent this Asus Vivobook S15 from having a balanced and sufficient configuration for office use. Today it is offered with a total reduction of 120 euros.
The Asus Vivobook S15 in a few points
- A 15.6-inch Full HD screen
- Attractive silver finishes
- An AMD Ryzen 5 4600H with 16 GB of RAM
- Complete connectivity
Instead of the usual 599.99 euros, the Asus Vivobook S15 is now available on sale at 479.99 euros at Carrefour thanks to a reduction of 100 euros and the promo code BACK TO SCHOOL20 which applies an additional reduction of 20 euros.
A configuration oriented towards office automation
If this laptop PC is mainly oriented towards office automation, and a little entertainment along the way, it is because it has a simple Ryzen 5 4600H processor. This has six cores, is clocked by default at 3 GHz and at 4 GHz in turbo boost mode. With 16 GB of RAM, it ensures smooth multitasking and can run complex software. There’s also room for video editing and photo editing thanks to the integrated Radeon Graphics solution, as well as some light gaming.
Storage is provided by a 512 GB SSD capable of running software quickly in addition to being able to store a large number of files. This Vivobook S15 comes with Windows 11 Home by default which offers a fluid and pleasant interface on which to navigate. In terms of autonomy, this laptop can count on a 3-cell 42 Wh battery capable of lasting around 9 hours in typical use, so it can last a whole day of work before needing to be recharged. .
Neat finishes for an unpretentious laptop
The Taiwanese manufacturer has opted for a plastic chassis here but that does not detract from the aesthetic aspect. With its silver finishes, the Vivobook S15 is almost reminiscent of a MacBook and one of the advantages it has over the Zenbook is that it is equipped with more varied connectivity. If the Zenbook only offers USB-C ports, this Vivobook has three USB-A ports and one USB-C port, not forgetting the HDMI port as well as the 3.5 mm jack.
Finally, this Asus Vivobook S15 has a 15.6-inch screen, an IPS-LCD panel in Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) with anti-reflective treatment to be able to view it in direct sunlight. It’s less vibrant than configurations with an OLED screen, but it’s not a must-have. The display quality would, of course, be brighter, but it would consume more energy and reduce battery life.
