Next up is the company’s VivoBook Go 14, which features a standard 16:9 IPS panel but with a 180-degree rotatable hinge, a feature that’s far too common among modern-day laptops. Users get up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. Despite being only 17.9mm thick, the VivoBook Go 14 includes connectivity options such as USB Type C, USB 3.2, USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4 and a 3.5mm headphone/mic combo jack.
There’s another convertible in the mix — the VivoBook S 14 Flip, relying on a 360-degree hinge for more flexibility and a RAM capacity of up to 24GB. It draws power from the Ryzen 5 7530U processor while also getting 16GB of RAM.
The company also took the wraps off the VivoBook Go 15 and its OLED sibling, featuring a near identical hardware, except for the difference in display types. Both versions feature a Full HD resolution and rely on the AMD Ryzen 5 7520U processors, paired with 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. Wireless connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5, complemented by a similar array of physical ports as the VivoBook Go 14.
Additionally, the company revealed three new laptops under the VivoBook Classic range — VivoBook 14 OLED, VivoBook 15 OLED, and VivoBook 16. Customers will get the Ryzen 7 7730U or the Ryzen 5 7530U processor depending on the variant they pick, while some of the rugged features of the ZenBook 14 OLED are also onboard. This range also supports 45W fast charging to ensure the device is back up and running in no time.
Rounding out the list of new ASUS releases is the VivoBook 15X OLED which includes the AMD Ryzen 7000 processor bundled with up to 1TB of storage and 16GB of RAM. The Full HD OLED screen also comes with VESA HDR TrueBlack 600 certification. A mammoth 65W fast charger is included to juice up the 50Whr. Connectivity ports include USB 2.0, USB C, USB 3.2, HDMI 2.0, and a 3.5mm headphone/mic port.
