Reviews for the Asus E402SA-DS01-BL
Source: Laptop Mag
With the lackluster multitasking and dim display, it's hard to recommend the $200 VivoBook E402SA despite the low price. The laptop isn't all bad, as it packs a comfortable keyboard and surprisingly powerful speakers. If you're willing to spend more, buy the $399 Asus VivoBook E403SA, which offers better, Pentium-class performance, a full-HD display and almost 2 hours of additional battery life.
