ASUS has teamed up with BAPE to create a very special Vivobook that will appeal to fans of the streetwear brand and want a notebook that's competent enough for daily use.

This is the ASUS Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition and it's essentially a special edition Vivobook with a unique colourway and accessories.

What stands out immediately is the camo motif that's distinctive to the BAPE brand on the cover of the notebook, which you can get in either silver or black.

Look closely and you'll notice that the notebook's trackpad also features the distinctive motif of the BAPE brand.

You also get BAPE-designed accessories including a mouse with interchangeable top covers, a carry bag, decorative stickers, and a figure of Baby Milo. 

As far as 15-inch notebooks go, the Vivobook S 15 OLED Bape Edition is actually fairly portable. It's 17.9mm thick and weighs 1.7kg.

It's not the slimmest, but it makes up for it by having a good selection of ports including two full-size USB-A ports, a single USB-C Thunderbolt 4 port, and a full-size HDMI 1.4 port.

You are not lacking in terms of specs too, here are the Vivobook S 15 OLED Bape Edition's key specs:

  • 15.6-inch OLED notebook, 2880 x 1620 pixels, 120Hz refresh rate
  • Intel Core i9-13900H processor
  • 16GB LPDDR5 memory
  • 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD
  • Intel Iris Xe graphics
  • Wi-Fi 6E connectivity
  • 75Wh battery 

For fans of the brand, I cannot think of a more suitable notebook to have. The specs are decent enough for everyday computing tasks and the notebook has lots of cool references to the brand as well as some pretty nifty accessories.

Availability and pricing

The ASUS Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition goes on sale on 25 August and will be priced at S$2,349. You will be able to find it at the ASUS Exclusive Store Bugis, the ASUS Online Store, and all authorised retailers. 

In addition, customers who pre-order between 18 and 24 August will receive a set of ASUS x BAPE mouse pads and a cleaning cloth (worth S$158) for free, while stocks last.
