Reviews for the Asus VivoBook 14 X403FA

83.7% Asus VivoBook 14 X403FA Review: The elegant subnotebook offers a lot of endurance | Notebookcheck
Asus has equipped the VivoBook 14 with a 72-Wh battery that ensures an excellent battery life. The rest of the equipment is also right: a Core-i5 processor, 16 GB of working memory (dual-channel mode), an SSD, and a matte IPS display. A Windows operating system is not included.
72% Asus Vivobook 14 X403 Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Asus VivoBook 14 X403 is a finely engineered product with many special qualities. The comfortably compact fourteen-incher delivers a remarkably long battery life, which makes it ideal for users whose work forces them to be away from the wall socket for many hours at a stretch. It also delivers top-notch performance for users hoping to edit long documents, work on spreadsheets, browse heavily, and watch videos online. That said, it's no good for anyone wanting to play video games on it.

80% Asus Vivobook 14 X403 review: A Windows device that is thin and powerful
Source: The Indian Express English
At a price of Rs 54,990, the Asus Vivobook 14 X403 is now one of the more portable laptops you can buy. And here portable does not mean you are compromising on either power or efficiency and that could make this one a winner.

8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
