Asus VivoBook S400CA Review

Review guidelines
2 September 2013
  • Summary: The Asus Ultrabook VivoBook S400CA is an elegant and robust at the same time. Therefore, particularly suitable to follow the owner during his travels. To enhance our impression that the weight does not contribute to excessive size and contained all things considered. The performances are very good, although incomplete: for work and family, will assist you in every situation without major hitches, but if you think you can also play with the Asus VivoBook S400CA , you’re...
  • Pros: Touch screen very responsive and precise design is both elegant and functional, Satisfactory performance, Sound quality superior to many competitors.
  • Cons: Both the surface of the lid is that of the screen are a repository of fingerprints, The visual quality is excellent and not suffering too much light reflection.

ASUS VivoBook S400CA review

7 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Easily mistaken for a boring run-of-the-mill laptop the ASUS VivoBook is an affordable option with a range of extra features. For a start it has a touchscreen is only 2cm thick has a large array of ports and a sleek wedge-shaped chassis. Our test model used a 1.8GHz Core i3-3217U CPU paired with a rather massively-overkill 6GB of RAM. No discrete GPU is included but the Intel HD 4000 graphics do a passable job and can handle a little casual gaming.
  • Pros: Inexpensive slim responsive.
  • Cons: Average battery life no SSD poor keyboard.

Asus Vivo Book S400CA-CA028H

29 July 2013
  • Summary: 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 experience. But, it is still lighter than a notebook!
  • Pros: Nicely built, Premium finish, Impressive performance, Good battery life, Touchscreen is an additional feature
  • Cons: Touchscreen adds bulk, Display loses out on contrast at high brightness, Lacks dedicated graphics

Asus VivoBook review: New, not revolutionary

27 March 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: The Asus VivoBook S400CA is a reasonably priced 14-inch laptop with a touch screen, and a solid, mostly metal body.
  • Cons: An uncomfortably mushy keyboard, a lower-resolution display, and unimpressive battery life make this laptop feel like a series of compromises.

Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51

PC Magazine
25 December 2012
  • Conclusion: 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.

  • Cons: 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.

ASUS VivoBook S400CA-UH51 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
4 December 2012
  • Summary: 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 14-inch touch screen. However, while five hours of battery life isn't terrible, other Windows 8 touch screen notebooks last longer on a charge. We also wish the keyboard had a firmer feel.
