What customers say about "Processor"
ASUS VivoBook S15 (S530FA-EJ101T) Full HD NanoEdge Laptop
  • Everything this does is super quick and battery life is great too.
  • Good size screen. Running/processing speed is okay.
  • Good product in ratio with quality - price, very light and practical for daily tasks. Great processor.
  • Nice thin and light machine. Love the colour design with red trim on the side. 8gen I5 CPU+ 8G ram is perfect for power user.
  • The Intel CPU seems to be sufficient enough, especially with the fast SSD that comes with it.
HP ENVY 13-ah0001na (4EW09EA) FHD Touch Screen Laptop
  • Lightweight, compactible for heavy multitasking because of the processor, slick design, suitable for 3d apps and softwares and everything you hoped it could do and more.
  • Performance-wise, with its i5-8250U processor, few will want more. It’s easily capable of light gaming, given the on-board GeForce MX150 graphics card.
  • THe 1.6Ghz Intel I5 processor is fast and so much more powerful than what you would expect in a popular laptop.
  • Always make some noise. CPU often 100%. but others are great.
  • This laptop is only suitable for everyday work, if you want to play video games, you need to find a laptop with a better processor.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS VivoBook S15 (S530FA-EJ101T) Full HD NanoEdge Laptop
  • Very silent, this laptop makes very minimal noise, the fan is very quiet.
  • Very quiet, which is an bonus. Very pleased with my purchase.
  • The build quality is very good and it is very good quality and very speedy and very comfortable to type on.
  • Feels quite 'plasticy' and flimsy. No light up keyboard.
  • Battery life is only a few hours with normal usage.
HP ENVY 13-ah0001na (4EW09EA) FHD Touch Screen Laptop
  • The screen is sharp and relatively bright, once the colour was adjusted slightly.
  • When you open the lid, it raises the back of the laptop allowing hot air to escape underneath and behind.
  • The charger is smaller than most. It's built like an Apple Macbook charger, except it doesn't use USB-C to charge.
  • Excellant screen (gorilla glass) and graphics for watching you tube, iplayer, netflix.
  • The only downsides are the battery life, lack of the RAM being DDR4 and the screen brightness not being up to the job outside .

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS VivoBook S15 (S530FA-EJ101T) Full HD NanoEdge Laptop
  • There are plenty of ports, HDMI and USB.
  • The ports are nicely positioned and spaced apart.
  • The sound stopped working entirely after connecting and disconnecting hardwired speaker.
  • Downside is that the USB C is not display out compatible.
  • What I don't like in this laptop is USB Type C. It does not support connection to a display.
HP ENVY 13-ah0001na (4EW09EA) FHD Touch Screen Laptop
  • Connectivity consists of a USB-C socket and two USB-A sockets. In addition there is a 3.5mm stereo jack socket for headphone connection.
  • All ports works well and location is good.
  • Decent quality, nice disign, a lot of ports and stable connection!
  • The only questionable design decision is the flap which covers half of one of the USB slots and has to be flicked out the way to use - I have no idea why!!!
  • WiFi has recently become flaky, connecting/disconnecting over and over once or twice a minute.
