The Asus VivoBook S550C is priced at an MRP of Rs 57,999. It’s clear that the premium is for the slim form, touchscreen and switchable graphics. However, we still feel that it’s priced quite steeply. Full HD display, backlit keyboard, Core i7 processor and more powerful discrete graphics would have completely justified the price of this laptop.

The ASUS S550CM is a good performer in both office applications as well as gaming. Its display quality is nothing to write home about, but it is nevertheless as responsive as you would expect of a Windows 8 capacitive multi-touch screen. The large 15.6"screen size makes it ideal as a desktop replacement, rather than an Ultrabook that can be carried around, as it is a little heavy. ASUS provides a nice carry bag along in an attempt to take care of this issue. One of the interesting things to note about this laptop is its switchable graphics that can switch between discrete NVIDIA and onboard Intel graphics according to application load, and thus help get a better battery backup. It doesn't just look good, but also sports excellent build quality. The battery backup time is also noteworthy for a laptop with discrete graphics. It is priced at Rs 58,000, which is Rs 5000 less than the Acer Aspire M3 Touch, but we would rather recommend the latter for it holds the edge as far as overall performance and battery backup is concerned.
