Conclusion: The Asus VivoBook X202E is definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a very affordable and portable Windows 8 touch screen notebook running full Windows 8 64 bit on and Intel Core i CPU. As you know by now, we highly recommend the X202 over the Q200: you get significantly better performance for just $50 more. The laptop is good looking, is well put together has a quality metal casing.
Pros: Attractive, metal casing, very portable, touchscreen and affordable. Full Windows PC runs all Windows apps. Plenty of ports for a small laptop.
Cons: Display doesn't have wide vewing angles, just OK trackpad and Intel Core i3 is the only CPU option.
Conclusion: We wish the VivoBook's screen were brighter, that its viewing angles were better, and that Asus hawked an option for some flash-cache storage. But given this system's low price, metal-heavy style, and touch screen, it's one of the best budget-priced Windows 8 laptops we've tested so far. You can find plenty of better 11.6-inch systems, but you'll have to pay hundreds more in most cases, or ditch the touch screen...or both.
Pros: Very low price for a touch-screen Windows 8 laptop, Thin and light, Responsive touch screen
Cons: Performance and battery life don’t match up with pricier ultrabooks, No flash-memory cache to accelerate program launches, Some screen viewing-angle issues
