Gear up for AI-powered computing on the go. ASUS has kicked off local preorders for the ASUS Vivobook S 15 in the Philippines, marking the arrival of the first Copilot Plus PC in the country.

This iteration of the Vivobook S 15 ditches the usual Intel or AMD processors in favor of the ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite chip. This isn’t just about efficiency; the X Elite boasts an integrated NPU [Neural Processing Unit] that unlocks the power of Microsoft’s recently announced Copilot Plus initiative.

The Philippines gets the Snapdragon X Elite variant of the ASUS Vivobook S 15. This lone configuration comes with 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and a speedy 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, all for a suggested retail price of P84,995 (around $1,448 converted).

Preordering between July 2 and July 10 at participating retailers gets you a free Delsey Lagos luggage valued at P10,990 ($187) and the chance to snag ASUS Philippines’ “Cool for School” bundle worth P15,990 ($272).

Preorder details

Announced earlier in 2024, Copilot Plus establishes a baseline for AI-powered Windows devices. These machines pack at least 16GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and an NPU capable of crunching at least 40 TOPS [trillion operations per second]. The key here is on-device AI processing — unlike traditional laptops, which leverage the power of cloud computing. Copilot Plus machines boast a dedicated NPU for AI tasks without an internet connection.

This translates to real-world benefits. Imagine using CapCut to remove video backgrounds in a flash thanks to the NPU-powered Auto Cutout feature. The future looks even brighter with upcoming AI-assisted features slated for Adobe’s creative suite, including Illustrator and Premiere Pro.

With the arrival of the ASUS Vivobook S 15 on the local market, customers will be able to experience the potential of Copilot Plus PCs. It might be worth considering, especially if you’re a student looking for a powerful and feature-rich machine or a professional seeking an AI-powered edge.
