NOTEBOOK ASUS Vivobook F202E review

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.

Importantly, ASUS hasn't sacrificed any ports to keep it compact. The left side has an Ethernet Port, HDMI, Kensington lock along with a couple of USB ports, of which one is a USB3. More ports like D-Sub, card reader and another USB port sit on the right.

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
