ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502 Glacier Blue

Introduction

Here’s ASUS’s latest laptop. These laptops were first announced and shown back at Computex 2019, which we also covered here. After a few months, we finally now have it on our hands – and with it comes a few differences from what was announced during Computex 2019.

Here’s our full in-depth review of the brand new ASUS VivoBook S531F.

Unboxing

The overall box of the ASUS VivoBook S531F is pretty similar to any other affordable ASUS laptops. It has a simple box with pretty much the same types of content like the previous VivoBook laptop that we reviewed.

You get the laptop itself, a relatively small power brick, some documentation – and most importantly, the HDD upgrade kit. Now, we have to also mention that 2.5-inch drives can be either HDD or SATA III SSDs, so the term “HDD” here is not entirely representative. Hence, that’s why we still call them 2.5-inch drives as it is instead of “HDD” or “SSD”.

Inside the upgrade kit, I was surprised to see a few additional things included here – a heat shield and an anti-vibration mounting bracket for the 2.5-inch storage drive. It’s good to see ASUS going the extra mile for budget lightweight laptops like the VivoBook S531F, just like the previously-reviewed VivoBook here.

But that’s not all – saw that little packet earlier? ASUS included a bunch of custom-designed stickers to suit your personality.
