[Comparison] ASUS VivoBook S13 S333 vs VivoBook S14 S433 vs VivoBook S15 S533 – everything you need to know

At CES 2020 ASUS unveiled the three new models of the VivoBook S family – VivoBook S13 S333, VivoBook S14 S433, and VivoBook S15 S533. These are mid-range devices that pack a good amount of features, low weight, slim profiles, and decent hardware. They come with new and more powerful CPU options, better dedicated GPUs, more connectivity options, and some other new specs that we will discuss in the next sentences.

Some similar specs for all models

There aren’t big design differences between the three new models. Modern and sleek design, all-metal chassis and diamond-cut edges. The GeForce MX250 option is available for all models. All panels have 1080p resolution. Every device can be configured with DDR4 2666MHz RAM. Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and 50Wh battery are standard specs no matter the model. The first available configurations are equipped with 32GB Intel Optane + 512GB SSD or 16GB Intel Optane + 256GB SSD. As for the ports, again, they are the same for each model (check the table down below for additional info).

Unfortunately, because of the new panels, all models have thicker bezels compared to the last-gen variants. The ScreenPad 2.0 isn’t available but you can have an optional integrated NumberPad within the TouchPad (option for the 14″ and 15.6″ models).

ASUS VivoBook S13 S333

The smaller device gets the newest Intel Ice lake CPUs and Intel Iris Plus Graphics. The top-end CPU option is Core i7-1065G7 with Intel Iris G7 graphics. The dedicated graphics options are NVIDIA GeForce MX350 and GeForce MX330 – MX350 is available for the S333 model only.

The panel is a 13.3” NanoEdge LED-backlit with 178° viewing angles – let’s hope that this one will be better than the one in the S330 variant. The S333 is the lightest and smallest device in the 2020 VivoBook lineup – it’s a good option for people who are often on-the-go and need a compact device with strong hardware (for example – i7-1065G7).

ASUS VivoBook S14 S433

Specs-wise, the S433 model is almost like a small VivoBook S533. The S433 can be configured with Comet Lake CPUs like Core i7-10510U or i5-10210U with Intel UHD graphics. For more graphics power users can rely on NVIDIA MX250.

The size and the weight are pretty respectable – the profile is 15.9 mm only and the weight is 1.40 kg. The display is an IPS one – 14″ NanoEdge LED-backlit panel. Four color options are available.

This VivoBook model is a good choice for the ones who need a bigger display than the S333 alongside optional NumberPad.

ASUS VivoBook S15 S533

The top-end model, the VivoBook S15 S533 is for the users who need a bigger screen without sacrificing portability much. It’s the better machine for long hours of typing because of the wider chassis and bigger keycaps. If you multitask with a lot of open Web browser tabs and programs at the same time you will appreciate the big 15.6″ screen.

Just like its S433 sibling, the S533 will be a “Comet Lake” device – i7-10510U or i5-10210U with UHD graphics, and again – MX250 as a dedicated graphics option. The profile and the weight of this device are decent – 16.1 mm and 1.80kg.
