The ASUS VivoBook S15 (S510U) Laptop Review

Page 3 : Keyboard, IceCool Technology, Touch Pad, Fingerprint Sensor & Speakers

Full-Sized Keyboard

The ASUS VivoBook S15 (Price Check) has a full-sized keyboard with chiclet keys. They boast a 1.4 mm key travel for more comfortable typing. Our model came with backlit keys, which may not be offered in some regions.

ASUS IceCool Technology

The VivoBook S15 (Price Check) has an improved cooling system, that ASUS calls their IceCool technology. It uses a smart fan, thin heat pipes, and an improved design, to keep the average palm rest temperature of the VivoBook S15 below 35°C.

Part of the new cooling design includes these cooling vents hidden behind the keyboard – the same design used in the Apple MacBook Pro. The hot air is exhausted upwards, which improves performance and makes for a more comfortable laptop experience.

 

Touch Pad & Fingerprint Sensor

The ASUS VivoBook S15 (Price Check) laptop has a large touch pad that measures 105 x 75 mm. A small fingerprint sensor is embedded into the right corner of this touch pad. This is similar to the touch sensors on smartphones, allowing for quick and secure authentication of the VivoBook S15 user.

Speakers

The ASUS VivoBook S15 (Price Check) has two 2 W speakers with resonance chambers on the underside, facing the front. These speakers may lack the Harman Kardon branding of the ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe, but they have been tuned by the ASUS Golden Ear team for optimal audio fidelity.

While we are here, you may note the four large rubber feet, and the lack of cooling vents, on the underside. The former keep the VivoBook S15 firm on the table top, while the latter ensure that the VivoBook S15 does not overheat while you are using it on the go. The cooling vents, as you may recall, are hidden behind the keyboard.
