Consumer review (currys.co.uk)

ASUS VivoBook X405 14" Laptop - Gold

 

Brilliant screen (only on the red and gold models). Light weight and fast boot up. Added a sandisk 128gb mini usb storage stick, now have 250 gb. Great for me.

No caps lock light. Could be a little flimsy for rough users.

Nothing so far

Very fast, lightweight and thin. Holds the charge for a good 8 hours and is very easy to install.

A bit smaller than I am use to, but as I use it for script writing I just increase the screen size to 120% .

The machine looked okay in the store

Lots of annoying pop-ups with in-house software. The machines performance has been erratic - screen fault where half shut down, corrected itself after a while but still faulty
