Thanks! done

Worth being aware that the 8th generation of U line processors from Intel is quite a leap in performance.

laptopmag.com/art…gen

"While the performance benefits of 8th Gen Core processors vary depending on the task, there's no doubt that it provides a huge boost, particularly on multi threaded tasks. If you're shopping for a laptop and there's a model with 8th Gen Core available in your price range, you should definitely prioritize it."

Thanks. I did purchase an Asus i5 8250u on Black Friday, but it didn't have FHD as advertised on Amazon, so wondering whether to return that one (which was £529) and buy the one on this post instead.

Assume it's the Asus VivoBook S410 that Amazon mis-advertised as Full HD. It's a tough one, as this and the Asus are a good specs. I think the newer processor will give the Asus a longer life span. But some people do need the higher resolution for specific tasks. So I guess the question is, do you? If you're happy with the lower resolution, contact Amazon, get them to phone you, and ask them what they are going to do about. You might be able to get an additional discount, rather than return it. I'm no expert, but I think they have entered into a contract to supply you with a laptop as advertised at that price.

Thanks for the advice, I think I've fallen into the hype of people expecting FHD nowadays. I will just use the laptop for everyday use, the odd Word document, Excel, browsing the Internet, Youtube etc. Not sure what other peoples specific tasks are that would require FHD. On the phone to them now, they offered return but no gift card or discount.

update: After sending them an email to customer support, gave them an ultimatum. They've offered me £10 promotional credit if I return, or 10% discount if I keep, So got it for 477 if I decide to keep, had to send them evidence of the full HD screeshot I took before I bought in case this happened.

They did give a £20 gift card because of the misinformation and no hassle return, could always try for more after opening, to check that it's FHD of course

Oh forgot to mention, the leap in performance is a no brainer for me.

Think I'll keep the Asus then as Amazon has offered me a 10% discount due to their FHD mistake on the ASUS VivoBook S410UA-BV133T

Hi, What did you say to them?

Hi, What did you say to them?


I've sent you a PM with what I said.

ASUS today announced the release of the VivoBook S14, a 14-inch laptop with the latest quad-core Intel 8th-generation processors and a tantalizing price.

The new notebook is also fairly slim and lightweight, so you can easily take it with you while on the road.

Here’s an overview of its specifications:

  • 14-inch 1,920 x 1,080-pixel display
  • Intel Core i7-8550U (1.8GHz, 8MB L3 cache)
  • 8GB LPDDR3 1,866MHz RAM
  • 512GB M.2 SATA SSD
  • 39Wh battery
  • 328 x 226.5 x 14.8mm
  • 1.2kg

The above configuration will cost you S$1,598, but there’s also an even more affordable model with a Core i5-8250U (1.6GHz, 6MB L3 cache) processor and a smaller 256GB SSD. That retails at just S$1,298, but the Core i5 chip is still a nice step up over the previous generation’s dual-core design.

As far as the specifications go, they’re super competitive for the price they’re going at.

I bought this laptop and the keyboard buttons don't work properly Pretty sad, since all the rest seems great. Anyone else had a similar problem?

What's the problem you're experiencing with the keyboard, I haven't had any issues with mine so far.

Oh, was talking about the Lenovo in the deal. Some letters/nrs just won't type, it's like I'm typing blank. SInce the moment I start it. I tried all the tricks I found on websites, but nothing works. Will ask for a return, I can't have a laptop with keyboard issue since day one
