Asus VivoBook S500CA review: Big, budget touch-screen Windows 8 laptop

 

Big on design and size, the 15-inch touch-screen VivoBook adds up to a pretty good value.

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.

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.

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 Review and Ratings

 

Asus' latest VivoBook packs a spacious touch screen into a sleek, slim chassis for a price that's hard to beat. But its surprising heft, slippery keyboard, and intrusive touch pad may make you want to leave this laptop at home.

Well-built, sleek, and attractive ; Affordably priced ; Responsive and competent tech support

Awkward keyboard and touch pad ; Heavy, has a big footprint

The Asus outlasted its peers in our demanding video-rundown test, running for almost five hours before hitting the wall. That's shy of the six- to seven-hour battery life of a MacBook Pro, but it's about as good as you'll get from the current crop of...
