Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S400CA-CA002H
Source: APC Mag
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.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
