All in all, the Asus VivoBook V451LA-DS51T is a solid choice if you're looking for a 14-inch laptop that can handle any routine task you throw at it, particularly if those tasks include playing and burning DVDs. With its pleasing design, it delivers a lot of bang for the buck. Our biggest complaints are the somewhat dim, low-resolution display and the mediocre audio, but neither of those is a deal-breaker for office and Web work.

The $699 ASUS VivoBook V451LA is like a Nissan Sentra. It'll get you where you need to go, just without any remarkable amount of speed or fun. The laptop's understated aluminum exterior belies an Intel Core i5 processor that does a serviceable job on most productivity tasks, while the integrated graphics deliver a surprising amount of pep.

Model:

The Asus VivoBook V451LA-DS51T is part of the VivoBook series, which was designed to bridge the existing gap between the slim, usually overpriced ultrabooks and chunky entertainment laptops. It features a 14 inch HD monitor with touchscreen capability. Asus claims to have placed much focus into increasing the precision and responsiveness of the touchscreen making it a joy to use. The notebook feels premium with its silver aluminium exterior and black keyboard. Another plus point is the 2.22 kg weight and sleek 1 inch height making it a portable entertainment system. The optical drive was not even sacrificed in order to maintain the slim specification boasted. This portability is coupled with a 5 hour battery lifespan which can outlast its 15 inch counterpart.

At the core of the notebook are the latest generation Core i5-4200U 1.6GHz processor and Intel HD4400 graphics processor. This combination is credited for the overall low power consumption of the notebook. The Asus VivoBook V451LA-DS51T comes with 6 GB of RAM and is easily upgradable to 8 GB for those who like to squeeze a bit more juice from their system. While the hardware is not the most powerful specification available, it is more than capable in handling everyday tasks with ease. Besides this, all features are pretty standard which includes a couple of USB 3.0 ports and other connectivity norms such as HDMI and Ethernet ports. The Asus VivoBook V451LA-DS51T definitely stands out from the other laptop segments with its powerful yet portable specification and not to forget, properly executed touchscreen capability.

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.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
