ASUS VivoBook X405 14" Laptop - Grey

 

HD display is excellent. It’s so light you barely notice you’re carrying it. The SSD boots up in seconds without a noise. Great laptop!

Only real bad thing is the SSD could be a double the size for a few extra pounds! Although you are able to add your own HDD for storing any data

ASUS VivoBook X405 14" Laptop - Grey

 

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.

Nice sharp screen (if you buy yhe red or gold versions - only ones with full hd), lightweight, fast boot up. Good value. Performance seems good so far, but no doubt will slow a bit as we install more stuff!

Nothing so far

ASUS VivoBook X405 14" Laptop - Grey

 

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% .

I bought two Asus X541U within a few weeks of each other. As a family of four I really liked the first one so bought a second for us to use. They get used for school and college work and gaming. In fact my son has found that he can play some of his...

There is no light indicating when the Caps lock is on. Also, we found that the internal wifi gizmo (sorry I'm not technical and had to get help with this) wasn't working with the second laptop we bought. The internet connection kept failing and we knew...
