As expected, Asus is adding a new 15.6 inch laptop with slim bezels to its VivoBook line of relatively affordable notebooks.  What I wasn’t expecting is that the new Asus VivoBook S15 is just one of two new 15 inch models from Asus.

The company also unveiled the VivoBook Pro 15 at its Computex press event today. This models’ a bit bulkier, but it’s also a lot more powerful.

The VivoBook S15 is a 3.7 pound laptop with a dual-core Intel Kaby Lake processor and a starting price of $499. The Pro model is a 4.4 pound laptop with a quad-core Kaby Lake CPU and a starting price of $799.
