War is taxing. With their new title Company of Heroes, the Canadian developer Relic wants to reach the top of the real-time strategy game charts. Alongside the pure gameplay, the title's visuals are also supposed to enchant the senses. Has the...

Review Asus VivoBook S500CA-CJ005H Ultrabook

 

Handy touch-ultrabook. Asus upgrades a simple 15.6-inch office ul

Quiet operation; Slim and light; Attractive casing; Decent application performance; 24 month warranty

Dark screen; Screen has an intense bluish cast; At best middling battery runtimes despite ULV hardware; High price

Although the laptop sports ULV hardware, its battery runtimes are on the same level as most laptops with standard mobile processors.

Metro: Last Light Benchmarked

 

A thrilling adventure. ?Metro: Last Light? is the next installment of the Metro franchise that follows in the footsteps of the infamous ?Metro 2033? that was well known to push modern gaming hardware to the limit. We will see if the gaming studio ?4A...

The following screenshots show the different benchmark settings used in our test runs. Since SSAA is extremely demanding (40 % lower frame rates at 1920 x 1080 pixels and maximum details), we have deactivated this anti-aliasing variant in our tests....

Review Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51T Ultrabook

 

Inexpensive touchscreen Ultrabook. Though its low budget price of

Good build quality and sleek design for the price; Large touchpad; Low idling system noise; Touchscreen functionality; User-accessible HDD, RAM, and system fan; Low starting price for a touchscreen Ultrabook

Very warm surface temperatures when idling; Maintenance panel can be difficult to remove; Average display brightness; Average battery life; Poor outdoor usability due to glossy screen; Arrow keys and numpad are slightly smaller and softer

The Asus Ultrabook offers good performance and overall aesthetics that are not commonplace in its price range. End-user upgrades can extend the lifetime of the notebook.

ASUS VivoBook S500CA DS51T

 

The world of 15-inch ultrabooks has always felt odd to me: Intel's dream of superthin Windows laptops carried over to a big, wide chassis never seemed right, whether it was the 15-inch Samsung Series 9 back in 2012 or this year's Asus VivoBook S500CA,...

An attractive design, solid specs, and a responsive touch screen in a sub-$700 price.

Bigger and heavier than most ultrabooks; no extra added graphics or DVD drive; screen isn’t full-HD.

The VivoBook S500CA offers a big-screened touch-screen Windows 8 laptop for a bargain price -- and without many extras.

Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51t

 

The Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51t's trim chassis, responsive touch screen, and reasonable price tag work together to create to an affordable Windows 8 experience, but its disappointing keyboard/ touchpad duo and so-so battery life hold it back.

Thin. Reasonably priced. Full-size HDMI port

Disappointing keyboard and touchpad. Keyboard isn't backlit. So-so battery life. Only one USB 3.0 port

There's a lot to like about the Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51t ($679.99 list). This Windows 8 entry-level ultrabook sports a trim design, responsive capacitive touch display, and reasonable price tag all contribute to an affordable Windows 8 experience....

Asus Vivobook S500CA review

 

The Asus VivoBook S500CA is an attractive laptop with a large, glossy 15.6in widescreen display. It's one of the largest laptops in the VivoBook range, but it shares the same sleek design and metallic and black finish as the other VivoBook models we've...

This slim touchscreen laptop has plenty of features but minimal performance

Asus VivoBook S500CA

 

Asus pioneered the use of touchscreens on budget laptops with its VivoBook family, and now it's the turn of its VivoBook 500CA. Boasting a 15.6in touchscreen, and the same snazzy, wedge-shaped design as its 11.6in and 14in stablemates, this is a budget...

A remarkable price for a classy 15.6in touchscreen laptop, but performance is seriously lacking

Very nice for the price

 

I just imaged my desktop onto the laptop second thing after installing the memory, and haven't looked back since. Runs very nice and is perfect companion since I will be travelling this month to Australia, which is why I bought it. Plays my movies,...

The touchscreen is accurate and responsive. Speed is up to par with machines that are about twice as much. After adding additional 4 gb of ram, it easily handles everyday tasks such as email,browsing, etc. Also capably handles gaming (to an extent)...

Biggest gripe (may just be mine) The space bar is almost non responsive. Beyond that, I have had no issues. Well, it froze up during the myriad of updates, but I expected that. No media for backup, or partition as well. Shouldn't matter for experienced...

Great for the Money

 

Be patient as there are approximately 100 Windows updates. I wouldn't do any personalizing until the updates are completed.

I bought this laptop for email, FB and writing documents. The processor speed has been fine with the acknowledgement that I added 4GB of RAM right off the bat. Boots up very quickly ; This is my first touch screen and I use it about half of the time to...

The laptop only came with the charger and a piece of paper for Windows 7; the unit has Windows 8 ; Need to take the whole bottom off to add RAM ; My laptop was packaged in a bubble sleeve with no support around the interior of the box, allowing it...
