Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51

 

As we well know, Windows 8 is meant to take advantage of the touch-screen interface, and subsequent Windows 8 optimized apps follows that functionality. Many traditional (read: non-touch) laptops and ultrabooks have to put in workarounds in order to be...

HDMI and VGA. Quick bootup from caching drive. Inexpensive price. Full ultrabook specs. Ten point Touch screen. Full sized Ethernet port. Solid screen for touch

Two USB 2.0 ports. Only one USB 3.0 port. Must use Fn key for vol/brightness/etc. Could use more battery life. Keyboard not backlit. Only 2.4GHz WiFi

The Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51 is one of the least expensive ways to get a fully functional Windows 8 ultrabook. It's a touch-screen ultrabook that gets the pricing and feature set right.

Asus VivoBook review: New, not revolutionary

 

Under the new VivoBook branding, this Windows 8 touch laptop is an awful lot like the competition.

The ; is a reasonably priced 14-inch laptop with a touch screen, and a solid, mostly metal body.

An uncomfortably mushy keyboard, a lower-resolution display, and unimpressive battery life make this laptop feel like a series of compromises.

You get a decent 14-inch laptop package in the Asus VivoBook, especially given that it has a touch screen, but it doesn't add up to anything particularly impressive that you can't get elsewhere either with better design or for a lower price.

Asus VivoBook S400CA review: Won't be the life of the party

 

Windows 8 may have one foot solidly planted in the future, but in the present it needs to be a reliable OS for everyday computers, too. While Macs are pricier, Windows PCs have always been what to look at if you're on a budget: this Asus VivoBook...

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

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.
