Budget Windows 8 touchscreen notebook
One look at the Vivobook F202E and we were smitten! The compact size, light weight, fit and finish and decent price make it a product, hard to beat.
Instead of using plastic, ASUS has used brushed aluminium for the lid and the palm rest, which gives a premium look and feel. Weighing just under 1.4Kg, the Vivobook F202E feels almost a kilo lighter than other conventional laptops. Measuring 303x200x21.7mm, it can also easily fit inside any regular backpack or sling bag.
This vivobook has laptop level specifications in a netbook sized body. Instead of a 14in or 15.6in display commonly seen in regular laptops, ASUS pairs a 11.6in touchscreen with Windows 8. Inside is an Intel Core i3 3217U processor with 4GB of RAM along with 500GB of storage.
The 11.6in screen has a resolution of 1366x768, more commonly seen in 14in or 15.6in laptops. But the shrunken screen boasts more PPI (Pixels Per Inch) — 135 compared in comparison
VERDICT: Light, great looking, good in any thing except hard core gaming
