Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S400CA-DH51T

60% ASUS S400CA Touch Ultrabook Review
Source: English
The ASUS S400CA Touch Ultrabook seems like quite a good deal on the surface: $699 buys a touch screen, Windows 8, an attractive design and good battery life. We found it also bought a solid selection of ports, reasonable build quality and relatively good sounding speakers. What it doesn't buy is a satisfactory user experience. We'd recommend spending a bit more for a computer with a better quality display before recommending the ASUS S400CA. There's not enough substance here to allow us to give it a full recommendation.

80% ASUS VivoBook S400CA-DH51T 14-inch Ultrabook PC

With its base features and price tag, the ASUS VivoBook S400CA-DH51T is not that different from most other ultrabooks. What sets it apart from them though is the 14-inch touchscreen display which is very beneficial to the Windows 8 experience but at a price similar to competing 14-inch ultrabooks.

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.
