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.

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.
