Asus Vivobook S400CA review

 

Great if you need a lightweight touchscreen ultraportable laptop, but a little underpowered for the money

Asus VivoBook S400CA review

 

The Asus S400CA-040H is the first in Asus' new VivoBook range. These are highly portable Ultrabook-style laptops. With their 10-point touchscreen they might even be a route to a better understanding of the controversial Windows 8. Two models will be...

This model is very much about the Windows 8 experience. It looks good, the touchscreen works superbly, and the laptop is itself light and nimble. As an overall system, the Asus is a model you'll want to come back to.

Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51

 

As we well know, Windows 8 is meant to take advantage of the touch-screen interface, and subsequent Windows 8 optimized apps follows that functionality. Many traditional (read: non-touch) laptops and ultrabooks have to put in workarounds in order to be...

HDMI and VGA. Quick bootup from caching drive. Inexpensive price. Full ultrabook specs. Ten point Touch screen. Full sized Ethernet port. Solid screen for touch

Two USB 2.0 ports. Only one USB 3.0 port. Must use Fn key for vol/brightness/etc. Could use more battery life. Keyboard not backlit. Only 2.4GHz WiFi

The Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51 is one of the least expensive ways to get a fully functional Windows 8 ultrabook. It's a touch-screen ultrabook that gets the pricing and feature set right.

Asus VivoBook review: New, not revolutionary

 

Under the new VivoBook branding, this Windows 8 touch laptop is an awful lot like the competition.

The ; is a reasonably priced 14-inch laptop with a touch screen, and a solid, mostly metal body.

An uncomfortably mushy keyboard, a lower-resolution display, and unimpressive battery life make this laptop feel like a series of compromises.

You get a decent 14-inch laptop package in the Asus VivoBook, especially given that it has a touch screen, but it doesn't add up to anything particularly impressive that you can't get elsewhere either with better design or for a lower price.

Asus VivoBook S400CA review: Won't be the life of the party

 

Windows 8 may have one foot solidly planted in the future, but in the present it needs to be a reliable OS for everyday computers, too. While Macs are pricier, Windows PCs have always been what to look at if you're on a budget: this Asus VivoBook...

ASUS S400CA Touch Ultrabook Review

Good battery life ; Good speakers ; Inexpensive

Poor screen ; So-so keyboard and touchpad ; Slow hard drive ; Headphone jack static ; The ASUS S400CA is an attractive Ultrabook priced at $699 but doesn't deliver a great user experience.
