Product Overview

ASUS VivoBook S15 S533 is an affordable ultra-thin 15.6-inch laptop. It is slotted beneath the company's ZenBook Pro 15 models, with a thicker chassis and shrunken feature set.
Like the VivoBook S13 S333 and S14 S433, the S533 is powered by 11th-gen Intel Core Tiger Lake low-powered processors. As its 15.6-inch size allows the placement of a numeric keypad, the NumberPad touchpad found in smaller models has not made its way here. Otherwise, the S533 is almost identical to the S433 except for its size.
Thanks to the new Intel processor, the VivoBook S15 S533 features Thunderbolt 4 connectivity and the latest Intel Iris Xe graphics.
For those who prefer a little more, ASUS also markets the S15 S532, which despite a lower number is more powerful.

Sentiment Score 55%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Asus has a stylish, elegant 15.6-inch all-rounder in its lineup that has been equipped with an unsatisfactory display. A 1 TB NVMe SSD (M.2 2280) from Intel serves as system drive and delivers good transfer rates. The integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EU GPU is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution.
