Verdict

If you can coup with drawbacks such as short battery life (the battery life is disappointingly low though Lithium polymer battery can charge itself up “to 60 percent in just 49 minutes), a shallow keyboard and a blurry webcam, the VivoBook S510 is a dependable choice for daily activities. But if you are going into gaming or more intensive photo editing, which is more demanding, you might want to look elsewhere.
