Review: Asus VivoBook S550CA offers Windows 8 and touchscreen in mainstream package

 

The Asus VivoBook S550CA is an affordable 15.6-inch touchscreen notebook with full Windows 8. While it falls short in media playback and battery life, it's still one of the better deals currently available.

Reasonably priced ; Nice touchscreen ; Attractive design

Low screen resolution ; Mediocre battery life ; Shallow-travel keyboard and trackpad

Asus VivoBook S550CA Review

 

Intel released the Ultrabook alongside a commitment to thinner, lighter laptops. Though ostensibly forward-looking, this promise was a bit silly; laptops have always trended towards thinner, lighter designs. Intel cleverly positioned itself to take...

Solid build quality ; Edge-to-edge glass display ; Enjoyable keyboard ; Quiet, cool operation ; Minimal bloatware

Poor display quality ; Middling battery life ; Lackluster performance

What Asus has crafted, perhaps inadvertently, is a desktop replacement for people who care more about touch and build quality than raw power.

Asus VivoBook S550CA

 

I really wanted to like this product (the ASUS Vivobook S550CA) from the moment I bought it but I grew to hate this laptop more and more as I used it…

ASUS S550CA-DS51T

 

I've decided to use this for a while before making a review. When I first received the computer it was already malfunctioning. I could literally be 10ft from the modem and could not detect wifi whether at home, campus or anywhere. The screen was also...

You can use it what its meant for (portable, do simple things like surf the web) but other than that there are no pros

Bought this for my ex

 

I'm a computer technician at an elementary school in Maine. I bought this as a replacement for my ex's old clunky toshiba satellite (the first ones to ship with windows 8 on them, at $425 a pop) which I accidentally broke during the break up. This...

Brilliant gloss display, chiclet keyboard, instant boot, and cool, brushed aluminum looks. Smallest battery pack I've ever seen in my LIFE

I don't get to keep it ; I have an inkling that battery life will be pretty short if you do anything other than leave it in standby

not so good

 

This ASUS VivoBook S550CA was a mistake though. It is a refurbished item with only 90 days warranty ! the keyboard is not very responsive (the worst keyboard I have experienced on any laptop) as is the TouchPad. Otherwise, it's relatively fast, silent...

Very nice so far

 

I've recommended this model for a couple of home/office users and have been impressed, esp for the price. The screen resolution wasn't a big deal for them, and some people like their shiny screens. It is a good option for a user who needs flexibility...

Fast, 'thinner', many ports, optical drive

Not what I would call an ultrabook, screen resolution, shiny screen
