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
