The Asus VivoBook V500CA-DB71T is a perfectly adequate desktop replacement laptop. But on a feature-by-feature comparison, it is blown away by the current mainstream desktop replacement Editors' Choice, the Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T , which has better 3D, faster benchmark scores overall, a larger hard drive, and over three more hours of battery life. You'll probably be happy with the V500CA-DB71T if you buy one, however for less money the entry-level DTR, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch$699.00 at Lenovo ($700) gives you a backlit keyboard, optical drive, the same number of ports, slightly more battery life, and comparable or slightly better performance on the benchmarks tests.

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.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
3537U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 2.0 - 3.1 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1200 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
