Asus VivoBook S400CA

CNET
20 April 2013
  • Summary: The Asus S400E packs an Intel Core i7 processor into a burly metal shell and doesn't charge an arm and a leg for it. Its touchscreen makes it easy to navigate around Windows 8 but it's let down by a poor resolution and unimpressive colours.
  • Pros: Affordable price; Good performance; Sturdy, portable design.
  • Cons: Lacklustre display; Unimpressive battery life.

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 review

expertreviews.co.uk
8 May 2013
  • Excerpt: We were impressed by the top-spec version of the Asus VivoBook S400 Ultrabook when we reviewed it recently but, at £700, the recent Core i7-based Best Buy winner won't suit everyone's budget. Fortunately, you can buy this Core i3 version for under £500.
