Summary: For what you pay you can not get anything better. This unit is lightweight with sufficient hardware for day to day office application processing needs. As well as online media content streaming, HD movie play back (used a usb blu-ray drive,)web browsing, and gaming via Onlive. I would not recommend this unit for hardcore processing (adobe after affects would run out of memory).
Summary: The form factor, specs, and cost all made the Vivobook a product that I was excited to have and to recommend to whoever I came across. Of course, the highlight was the touchscreen which is VITAL if you're using Windows 8. Adding to that was the excellent workmanship (metallic palmrest) and the perfect size and weight (liked it better than the Zenbook or MacBook Air). But less than 2 months later, it all turned into a nightmare.
