ASUS Vivobook X202E/ S200E review: affordable touchscreen
28 January 2013
Excerpt: The arrival of Windows 8 has brought about quite a bit of innovation among laptops and tablets, even combining the two in various different ways. Some laptops can be converted into tablets, and some tablets come with keyboard docks. Then there's also the laptop with a touchscreen, such as the ASUS Vivobook X202E we are reviewing today. In the UK this laptop is called the S200E, but other than that the specifications are identical.
Summary: The VivoBook X202E has a lot of redeeming qualities. Take the exterior, which is blanketed in stylish brushed metal that defies the system's . Those metal pieces are good for more than just Apple-chic looks; they also deserve some of the credit for the VivoBook's solid feel. The chassis may be a little thicker than the average ultrabook, but only by a few millimeters.
Summary: If you’re in the market for a portable notebook with Windows 8 and a touchscreen display, the Asus VivoBook X202E is one of the cheapest options available,
at $499 and up
. But despite the relatively low price, it’s a pretty decent laptop which offers acceptable performance, a decent keyboard, and a rather attractive case design.
Just don’t go expecting too much from a notebook in this price range.
Summary: I can definitely say that the Asus Vivobook X202e is a perfect work companion. It’s an entry-level notebook but packs more power than most netbooks. At 2.9 lbs it isn’t exactly feather weight but it isn’t tiring to carry around. Plus, it is only 0.85-inch (21.7mm) thin so it won’t take much space in your bag. Not to mention the Zen look that makes the X202e aesthetically pleasing.
Excerpt: To get the most out of new Windows 8 Metro design, the Asus VivoBook X202E includes a responsive touchscreen, which is more useful with Windows 8 than a mouse is. While the touchscreen is a great addition, there seems to be a sacrifice of CPU and GPU performance, and this Windows 8 netbook falls short compared to the best mini laptops. The overall purpose of the X202E is for travel, quick access to the internet and occasional movie watching.
Pros: The VivoBook has an attractive design that is perfect for taking on the road or packing to class.
Cons: The battery life is barely four and a half hours, and the system's graphics card suffers from poor performance.
Conclusion: Besides from the excellent build, touchscreen, and very good display and keyboard, the VivoBook X202E further cements its distinction by being the only Windows 8 touch-enabled notebook available in South Africa at the time of writing for the mainstream market. We certainly cannot imagine any user being unhappy with what is on offer here, we certainly were not.
Pros: Excellent build, Responsive touch screen, Very affordable price, Windows 8
Cons: Relatively slow processor, Not great viewing angles
