Review Asus X301A-RX005V Subnotebook


Glamorous Device with a Drawback. When beautiful meets cheap, it will surely be good - or will it? Asus starts out well with the key features - 13.3-inches, Intel Core-i3, 499 Euros (~$646), but when it comes to details, its facade is seen through.

Pretty case, Low energy consumption, Very long battery life, Good Office performance, Surfaces remain cool at all times
