Review Asus VivoBook S400CA Ultrabook

 

Windows 8 Book. The VivoBook S400CA provides the ideal symbiosis for Windows 8: Conventional notebook and touchscreen combined. This allows traditional programs and apps in the tiled layout to both be used as they were intended. The question is whether...

Good manufacturing quality, Elegant design, Large touchpad, Touchscreen, Low system noise, Good speakers, The touchscreen combined with Windows 8

Only one USB 3.0 port, Reflective display with low brightness, Difficult to upgrade, A brighter display and further additional USB 3.0 ports

ASUS S400CA Touch Ultrabook Review

 

The ASUS S400CA is an attractive Ultrabook priced at $699 but doesn't deliver a great user experience.

Good battery life ; Good speakers ; Inexpensive

Poor screen ; So-so keyboard and touchpad ; Slow hard drive ; Headphone jack static

The ASUS S400CA Touch Ultrabook seems like quite a good deal on the surface: $699 buys a touch screen, Windows 8, an attractive design and good battery life. We found it also bought a solid selection of ports, reasonable build quality and relatively...

ASUS VivoBook S400CA-UH51 Review

 

The $699 ASUS VivoBook S400CA-UH51 represents a pretty solid value for students, mainstream users and those who have been waiting to pull the trigger on their first Windows 8 machine. This is the lightest and thinnest Ultrabook we've seen that has a...

Affordable for a touch screen laptop, Speedy boot time, Lightweight and sleek aluminum design

Below-average battery life, Shallow keyboard

Asus Vivobook S400CA-CA028H Review

 

Like its bigger screen sibling, the more affordable S400CA walks the same path of very good build quality and fairly good performance. The touchscreen has added a bit of bulk to the entire package, which does take away from the actual ultrabook...

Nicely built, Premium finish, Impressive performance, Good battery life, Touchscreen is an additional feature

Touchscreen adds bulk, Display loses out on contrast at high brightness, Lacks dedicated graphics

Best Touch Ultrabooks Comparison – ASUS S400CA vs Sony VAIO T

Solid performance for a low price, Useful preinstalled software, Touch-screen capabilities, Strong overall package

Poor battery life, Lackluster display, Slightly shallow keys

Congress take note: This is what compromise should look like. You can't really call the Asus VivoBook S400CA exciting, but you can call it thoroughly capable.

Asus Vivobook S400CA review – an affordable ultrabook

 

The Asus S400CA is one of the best affordable ultrabooks that offer a touchscreen right now and it's overall a solid machine, despite having some more or less annoying traits.

sleek, solid built, decent keyboard and trackpad, snappy, comes with a touchscreen, fair price

a rather poor panel was used for the screen, there's plenty of bloatware preinstalled

Ok, so basically the Asus VivoBook S400 is a decent everyday notebook, just thinner and lighter than the average laptop you’re familiar with. It also comes with a touchscreen and runs Windows 8, and while it’s not the snappiest flower in the garden,...

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.

Review: ASUS VivoBook S400CA

 

Windows 8 has given rise to an unexpected breed of computing devices that had probably never been envisaged when the new OS was being designed. While it should have been meant for tablets, we are seeing an increasing number of laptops with touchscreens...

Good performance; Large responsive touchscreen; Ergonomic keyboard

Poor display quality; Battery backup could have been better; Pricey
