Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S400CA-CA002H

70% ASUS VivoBook S400CA
Source: APC Mag English
While the VivoBook uses lower-end hardware, it’s at a level where Windows 8 is fast and responsive, without power you don’t need going to waste. Thanks to the quality build and slim form, you could easily convince people it’s an ultrabook. Amazingly, if you shop around you can pick up the S400CA for under $700, which in our books makes it a great bargain.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
