Here are two ASUS laptops that fulfill specific needs – and are worth investing in – that are now available at Shopee. The ASUS VivoBook S13 is for someone who needs a compact laptop with a good display and some graphic power for moments of need. The ASUS X560UD is for the gaming enthusiast and video/graphic content creator who needs a big screen and no compromises in performance.

The ASUS VivoBook S13 has tiny 4.3mm bezels, an impressive 89% screen-to-body ratio, but is impressively thin (17.9mm) and lightweight (1.2kg), letting you take it wherever you need to get things done. Its capable Core i5 processor plus discrete Nvidia MX150 graphics allow both multitasking and the ability to do graphic and minor video work wherever work takes you. Its backlit chiclet keyboard (1.4mm key travel) is a joy to type on. Its Full HD display (with a 178-degree viewing angle) deliver crisp details and vivid colors.

The VivoBook S13’s chassis is so compact that it’s only slightly bigger than the body of a smaller 11-inch laptop. It has an ErgoLift feature that raises the keyboard base slightly for both better system cooling and a comfier typing position. A fingerprint sensor and Windows Hello means easy, fast, and secure login every time (no need to type in your password).

The ASUS X560UD is a laptop for intense work and awesome play.

The ASUS X560UD is a high-performance laptop that delivers gaming-grade graphics and responsive computing (that means it’s for hard work and intense play). It has small bezels so you can focus on the 15-inch full HD display that deliver vivid details. The ASUS X560UD has a dual-storage design (1TB HDD+256GB SSD) so you can enjoy a speedy SSD (very fast response times) and the large capacity of an HDD (for storing your work, music, and videos). It also features large diameter speakers so you can enjoy more powerful bass and impressive sound clarity.

Because laptops used for graphic/video work and high framerate games tend to get warm, the ASUS X560UD is equipped with IceCool technology (smart fan control, thin heat pipes, ingenious engineering) that keeps both the system and the palm rests cool. Fast charging means plugging in this beast gets you 50% capacity in just 39 minutes.
