Product Overview

ASUS VivoBook S14 S435 is a midrange ultra-thin 14-inch laptop. It is positioned to be a more affordable alternative to the ZenBook 14 Ultralight UX435, sharing with it most of the feature set but encased in a thicker chassis.
The VivoBook S14 S435 is powered by 11th-gen Intel Core Tiger Lake low-powered processors. It features ASUS's unique NumberPad 2.0 touchpad, which is again a step-down from the UX435.
Thanks to the new Intel processor, the VivoBook S435 features Thunderbolt 4 connectivity and the latest Intel Iris Xe graphics.
For those who prefer to trade some of the portability for a lower price point, ASUS also markets in the 14-inch class VivoBook S14 S433 and M433.
