Expert Review

ComputerShopper
29 May 2013
  • Conclusion: That said, it also carries a few compromises when competing in an increasingly crowded field, mostly to do with its bulk and the likelihood that you'll want to plug in your favorite keyboard and mouse. The VivoBook S500CA is worth a look, but it's not a slam dunk.
  • Pros: Well-built, sleek, and attractive, Affordably priced, Responsive and competent tech support
  • Cons: Awkward keyboard and touch pad, Heavy, has a big footprint

Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51t

PC Magazine
11 April 2013
  • Conclusion: 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, but its disappointing keyboard/ touchpad duo and so-so battery life hold it back.
  • Pros: Thin. Reasonably priced. Full-size HDMI port.
  • Cons: Disappointing keyboard and touchpad. Keyboard isn't backlit. So-so battery life. Only one USB 3.0 port.
