The Asus VivoBook E403SA-US21 has enough features and performance to shine as an above-average entry among budget desktop-replacement laptops. It boasts class-leading battery life, good build quality and design, a decent amount of quick storage space, and a full HD screen that's easy on the eyes. The larger Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series remains our Editors' Choice award, however, for having much better performance, more memory, a touch screen, and a wide, expansive keyboard with numeric keypad for doing real work, all while coming in at a lower price. That said, if portability is more important to you than power, keep the VivoBook on your short list.

Unlike many other low-cost notebooks, this Asus model does not subsidize its existence with a boatload of bloatware. In fact, other than Asus’ own utilities, the typical Windows 10 Home apps and offers, and a trial for Microsoft Office 365, there’s no pre-installed software at all.

Unlike a lot of 14-inch budget Windows 10 machines, the Asus VivoBook E403SA packs a full-HD (1920 x 1080) display, a premium lightweight chassis and a battery that lasts more than a full workday. The only strikes against this system are an underside that runs a little hot and speakers that require adjustment for the best sound.

50% Asus VivoBook E402SA
Source: Laptop Mag English
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.

70% Asus VivoBook L403
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The L403 is a solid, budget 14-inch laptop, especially given its £300 price. A Full HD screen and solid chassis make it a decent choice. However, for £50 more you can grab the Acer Swift 1, which comes in lighter, smaller and offers even better build quality along with a fingerprint reader. However, its more compact size does also mean it offers less in terms of the roominess provided by the L403’s 14-inch chassis.

The VivoBook E403NA is a great value, with solid performance, good build quality, a full-HD display and over 8 hours of endurance. It's unfortunate, however, that the E403NA is a couple of steps behind its now-discontinued predecessor, with an hour less of battery life, a USB-C port that doesn't charge the laptop and an oddly slippery touchpad.

Asus Vivobook E12 X207NA-FD053T

The ASUS VivoBook E12 X207NA-FD053T is extremely lightweight, ultra- slim and always cuts a fine figure on the go thanks to its sleek design. It features a 11.6-inch LED-backlit glare-type HD display with ergonomic surrounds. 11.6-inch screen diagonal, a weight of only 1.0 kilograms and excellent battery life, this is a laptop that can hardly be more mobile. Especially in simulated office use with occasional coffee breaks, the Asus Vivobook E12 X207NA-FD053T shows its strengths and holds a whopping 11:36 hours. With constant video operation, the battery life measures a good 8:12 hours. By comparison, only the Acer TravelMate B117-M-P994 (12:18 hours in office mode) and the Asus Vivobook E14 L403NA-FA017TS (13:38 hours in office mode) perform even better, but both are noticeably heavier than the Vivobook. On the whole, the ergonomics are convincing. Thanks to clearly defined keys and a good stroke, typing on the keyboard is fluent and error-free. The mouse replacement responds quickly and precisely to inputs, but sometimes shows something sticky. This is not really disturbing in everyday life. The Vivobook E12 X207NA-FD053T performs a little better on the display. Although the 11.6-inch panel with its 1,366 x 768 pixels cannot compete with a Full HD device such as the TrekStor Primebook C13, the pixel density is sufficient for a clear display of the content. The maximum brightness of 257 cd/m² is convincing. It allows outdoor work despite reflective surface. The above-average display is rounded off by an even brightness distribution of 94.1 percent and a checkerboard contrast of 167:1. In order to enable high battery life, Asus dispenses with energy-hungry hardware in the Vivobook E12. The processor is an Intel Celeron N3350 with 1.1 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.4 GHz), which is supported by 2 GB of RAM. Although the RAM capacity is significantly below today's standard of 4 to 6 GB, the performance of the Vivobook is sufficient for everyday office and Internet tasks. On the other hand, with many programs open at the same time and more complex tasks, such as an image or video editing, the laptop quickly reaches its load limit. It has an Intel HD Graphics 500, which is an integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series. Non-demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. In particular, the built-in eMMC memory is extremely small with 32 GB. After all, the memory can be expanded by a microSD card. The Vivobook is a suitable laptop for those who travel a lot and need a very basic machine for document editing and other minor tasks. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam
