Digitaltrends
26 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The VivoBook’s standout feature is not the Ultrabook label … it’s the touchscreen. Many inexpensive systems offer touch, and prices creep downwards by the month, but this is the first laptop we’ve tested to offer edge-to-edge glass.

Review: ASUS VivoBook S550

Cybershack
1 June 2013
  • Excerpt: ASUS has been the quiet achiever in the notebook space as it has slowly but surely made its presence felt over the past few years. It’s been five years since it launched its M70 notebook, while it’s also concentrated a lot on the tablet space with its Eee Pad offerings.
