AASUS VivoBook Ultra A412: World’s Smallest Colorful 14” Laptop
VivoBook Ultra A412 feature the incredibly slim bezel allows a large display to fit into a smaller chassis, effectively reducing the laptop footprint for a more compact and portable machine. VivoBook Ultra A412 is available in four gorgeous colors so users can select one that best express themselves. There are classics such as Transparent Silver and Slate Grey, as well as iridescent Peacock Blue, which changes color tone depending on how light strikes the laptop surface.
The four-sided frameless NanoEdge display design gives VivoBook Ultra A412 bezels that are only 5.7mm thin, giving screen-to-body ratios of up to 87%. The FHD panels also feature wide-view technology and exceptional color reproduction for lifelike visuals even when viewed from extreme positions. The NanoEdge display gives VivoBook a smaller footprint that makes the laptop much more portable without sacrificing screen size.

In normal use, NumberPad is a large glass-covered Windows Precision Touchpad with multi-gesture support. A tap of the NumberPad icon on the touchpad turns it into an LED-illuminated keypad with a familiar layout for easy data entry.
A fingerprint sensor built into the touchpad provides one-touch access with Windows Hello, so logging in has never been easier or more secure. There’s also a full-size backlit keyboard that’s perfect for working in dim environments. It has a sturdy one-piece construction and 1.3mm key travel for comfortable typing.
The ErgoLift hinge on the new VivoBook series provides more comfort during long typing stints. Its unique design automatically tilts the keyboard when the laptop is opened, creating the familiar feel of a desktop keyboard. The VivoBook Ultra A412 features a high-quality battery with all-day battery life and a lifespan that’s up to 3X-longer than standard lithium-ion batteries. Fast-charge technology enables users to charge a low battery to 60% in just 49 minutes.
