Choosing between the ASUS Vivobook S 15 and the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7i Pro depends on your preferences. If a larger screen and higher processing power are crucial for tasks like video editing or gaming, the ASUS might be more suitable despite its higher price and weight. Meanwhile, the Lenovo offers a more compact form factor, higher resolution screen, and better portability at the expense of some performance. Both have solid build quality, but if you favor longer battery life and a lighter device for on-the-go use, the Lenovo could be your best bet. In contrast, for intensive tasks and multitasking, the ASUS is more capable. Give Feedback

Mario Petzold | February 2023
"Internals make Asus VivoBook S15 laptop a compelling option. The Asus multimedia laptop may look rather below-average with its modest black chassis, lack of a dedicated GPU, limited RAM and meagre port selection without Thunderbolt support. But your impression of the device will start changing once you set your eyes on its high-contrast OLED capable of producing deep blacks and highly accurate colours. And your opinion will change completely when the VivoBook is switched on. The AMD CPU can effortlessly keep up with powerful rivals from Intel. The integrated Radeon graphics blows away Intel's iGPU when it comes to graphics workloads such as rendering and simpler games."

Allen Ngo | October 2021
"The main selling point of the IdeaPad Slim 7i Pro versus a regular IdeaPad Slim 7 is its faster Core H-series CPU. In reality, the Core i7-11370H is only marginally faster than the U-series Core i7-1165G7 to the point where most users are not likely to notice the benefits. The slight performance uptick comes at the cost of slightly higher power consumption as well meaning owners will have to deal with potentially warmer temperatures or louder fans to compensate. Unless if you happen to be a power user, then the regular non-Pro model will be more than enough. Once you go 90 Hz, you can't go back."
