Asus VivoBook S550 Review

4 June 2013
  • Summary: The addition of the touchscreen on a lot of ultrabooks has added a bit of weight for something that was a tad unnecessary. With the VivoBook S550, Asus has managed to deploy the add-on without adding to the thickness or weight. Its performance is at par with the HP ENVY 4 ultrabook, and is built very well, with a dedicated graphics chip adding a lot of value to the package.
  • Pros: Built very well, Good display, Touchscreen doesn't add bulk, Decent graphics capabilities
  • Cons: Keyboard is inferior to the HP ENVY 4, When do we finally get Full HD display?

Asus VivoBook S550CA Review

26 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The VivoBook’s standout feature is not the Ultrabook label … it’s the touchscreen. Many inexpensive systems offer touch, and prices creep downwards by the month, but this is the first laptop we’ve tested to offer edge-to-edge glass. We’d prefer a higher-quality panel beneath, but most competitors do no better. Build quality and material choice also impress.
  • Pros: Solid build quality, Edge-to-edge glass display, Enjoyable keyboard, Quiet, cool operation, Minimal bloatware
  • Cons: Poor display quality, Middling battery life, Lackluster performance

Review Asus VivoBook S550CM-CJ038H Ultrabook

8 April 2013
  • Summary: Ultra-touch. Touchscreens are trendy. Following smartphones, tablets and convertibles, the first touch-sensitive screens are now moving into the conventional laptop and ultrabook category. Is it an unnecessary gimmick or a practical feature? Read in the following review whether the combination of potent ultrabook and touchscreen can convince us.
  • Pros: Elegant, stylish design, Good workmanship, Strong ultrabook power with dedicated GPU, Moderate emission rates, Touchscreen ("nice-to-have"), The stylish, elegant design due to the aluminum finish and the casing's improved quality compared with the S56CM owing to the tightly pulled hinges as well as more stable display lid.
  • Cons: Mediocre screen quality, Reflective screen, ULV-CPU could slow down some games, Touchpad needs getting used to, Instead of the nifty but in our opinion quite superfluous touchscreen, we would appreciate a matte and above all much higher quality screen. The Zenbooks from Asus and Acer's Aspire V3-571G prove it is possible.

Asus VivoBook S550

10 July 2013
  • Conclusion: In many ways the Asus VivoBook S550 balances positives with negatives, to deliver an all-rounder notebook that will likely find its appeal amongst the midmarket end user, who is similarly doing a balancing act of their own, taking into account cost as well as performance. True, it is not as high-end as the excellent Zenbook, but nor does it carry the same price (R22 000 plus).
  • Pros: Well built, Attractively designed, Generously sized trackpad, Bright and responsive touchscreen
  • Cons: Shallow key press, No backlighting, Overly reflective screen

Review: ASUS VivoBook S550

1 June 2013
  • Excerpt: ASUS has been the quiet achiever in the notebook space as it has slowly but surely made its presence felt over the past few years. It’s been five years since it launched its M70 notebook, while it’s also concentrated a lot on the tablet space with its Eee Pad offerings. Then there was the recently released Taichi ultrabook, and now they are going slightly more mainstream with its VivoBook range.

Test: ASUS Vivobook S550CA - großes Touch-Ultrabook

17 May 2013
  • Summary: ASUS zeigt mit dem Vivobook S550C an vielen Stellen, dass auch von einem Mainstream-Segment Premium-Qualitäten erwartetet werden können, stellt auf der anderen Seite aber auch unter Beweis, warum die Top-Klasse noch immer ihre Daseinsberechtigung hat, beispielsweise beim Display.
