Asus launched a new VivoBook S, the S510, today that features a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, runs Windows 10, and is designed to look nearly identical to the MacBook Air. The laptop weighs only 3.3 pounds and has 7.8mm-thick bezel.

Here are the specs:

  • 15.6-inch Full HD, 1920 x 1280 display
  • Either Intel Core i7-7500U or i7-7200U processor (depending on model)
  • 8GB of RAM
  • Ports: USB-C, USB Type-A, USB 2.0, HDMI, headphone jack
  • Up to 1TB of storage (depending on model)
  • Windows 10 Home
  • Included SD card reader

It starts at $699 and goes up to $799 for a better processor and more storage. It’s available through Asus’ online store, ABT, B&H, Computer Upgrade King, and Newegg.

Asus debuted its VivoBook S line at Computex this year. We had some hands-on time with one model and found that the screen didn’t look great, but for the price, it seemed okay. More than anything else, the weight and price will probably be what gets people interested, so maybe a less-than-stellar display is fine.
