ASUS VivoBook F202E-CT148H Review
19 May 2013
Summary: Asus has priced the VivoBook F202E aggressively at Rs 40,000, which makes it the only laptop of its kind in its price bracket—an entry-level ultraportable Windows 8 laptop with a touchscreen. If you feel its feature set and performance are tailored for your needs, this laptop deserves to be at the top of your shopping list—rest assured you won’t be disappointed.
Summary: It is quite a surprise that Asus positions this machine as a laptop, and not an ultrabook. But, honestly, we do not mind. The focus needs to be on the fact that it offers fairly acceptable performance in a very compact form factor. Almost the ultrabook-ish compactness, if you may. But, do note that the performance is fairly toned down, and will not be anywhere close to the likes of the Core i3 on the HP Pavilion G6-2227tu.
Pros: Very well built, Excellent keyboard, Sharp and fairly vivid display, Touchscreen is an added bonus, Acceptable battery life
Cons: Display is reflective, Slight compromise, if you expect blazing fast performance
Conclusion: ASUS VivoBook F202E-CT148H provides a solid Windows 8 touch experience in a lightweight design for affordable price. If your priorities lie in enjoying the latest high-definition movies on your travels and you're not fussed about the touchscreen, you can spend your money more wisely elsewhere.
Pros: Touch-screen capabilities and Good performance.
Excerpt: With the announcement of Windows 8, ASUS has launched the VivoBook range of thin and light laptops with touchscreens to make use of the OS's touch-based UI. The VivoBook F202E is one of the thinner and lighter models with an 11.6" screen, with a 500 GB hard drive, and powered by an Intel Core i3 CPU. Additionally, it also comes with SonicMaster audio processing that claims to produce richer sound with deeper bass and powerful output.
Pros: Lightweight; Slim and elegant design; Good connectivity options; Priced well.
Cons: Battery life could have been better; Bad viewing angles and reflective screen.
