Asus Vivobook S551LB / V551LB review – a good 15.6 inch ultrabook

 

The Asus Vivobook S551 is a 15 inch ultrabook you have to consider. Sleek, solid, powerful and efficient, it offers most of the things you would ask from such a laptop. It's not as light as it might seem though and it does have some small design...

beautiful and sleek, solid built, touchscreen, decent keyboard/trackpad, fast hardware, good sound, long battery life

poor screen, hot air blown out towards the display, rather heavy, expensive

ASUS Vivobook S551LB

 

Offering a decent balance between price and performance, ASUS unfortunately had to compromise on screen quality to keep the cost down.

Average overall performance combines with excellent gaming muscle to deliver a machine that specialises in play time

The inclusion of a touch screen has obviously come at the cost of the resolution, negating one of the key benefits of this laptop’s larger dimensions

Weighing in at a rather hefty 2.4kg, the S551LB unfortunately loses one of the major benefits of its larger dimensions due to the low screen resolution. The disappointing screen is undoubtedly this laptop's major flaw — what's the point in dragging...
