40% Asus VivoBook E203NA Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus VivoBook E203NA looks pretty for a budget notebook, but its bland display, short battery life and inexcusably dark webcam make using it a chore.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
A price of less than £200 is always going to result in some compromises – but the E203NA’s long battery life and a decent typing experience make it a viable option for those needing a cheap, portable work machine.

79.9% Asus VivoBook E12 E203NA (N3350, HD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Lightweight. The VivoBook E12 can score with its noiselessness and long battery runtime. At a weight of around one kilogram, it is one of the lightest of its kind.

 

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

Asus VivoBook E12 E203NAH-FD023T

The Asus VivoBook E12 E203NAH-FD023T is designed to help a users be productive all day, even when they are on the move. This compact and lightweight 11.6-inch laptop is powered by the latest low-power Intel Celeron N3350 microprocessor at 1.1 GHz and provides up to 10 hours of battery life. With preloaded Windows 10, it offers full compatibility with a wide range of software and peripherals. It’s the best laptop for people on the go. The VivoBook E12 is available in three gorgeous graduated finishes: Star Grey, Petal Pink, and Pearl White. Unique hexagonal motifs on the front cover add a distinctive touch of individuality. With its 180° hinge, the VivoBook E12 can be laid flat on the table to share content with friends and colleagues. Its unique, durable hinge design has been subjected to a grueling 20,000 cycles in open-and-close tests. The VivoBook E12 offers effortless mobility, thanks to its compact and lightweight design. It has a desktop footprint that’s smaller than an A4 sheet of paper and weighs just 980 g. It is 3 % thinner than its predecessor, which is making it one of the thinnest 11.6-inch laptops available. It’s the perfect take-anywhere laptop that’s always ready to go where the day takes. The Asus Tru2Life video technology makes any video look amazing. Through intelligent algorithms, it optimizes the sharpness and contrast of every pixel in every frame by 150 % to produce incredibly vivid and realistic imagery. The Asus Splendid display technology optimizes imagery to provide richer, deeper and more accurate colors for any type of content. The VivoBook E12 also delivers impressive audio, with dual speakers and ASUS SonicMaster technology for immersive surround-sound. In addition to a hard drive of 1 TB at 5,400 RPM, this laptop has 4 GB of DDR3L memory at 1,600 MHz. Hence, the multi-task behavior is better than than laptops' equipped with 2 GB of RAM. This takes on special importance since it is not possible to expand the RAM capacity because RAM is soldered to the board. The 11.6-inch VivoBook E12 includes a touchpad that’s typically only found on larger 14-inch laptops. It is 17 % larger than touchpads on competing laptops. Designed for extra-sensitive responsiveness, the touchpad includes palm rejection technology with Windows Precision Touchpad that’s driven by an exclusive algorithm. This perfect balance between sensitivity and usability ensures effortless navigation with Windows apps and other features. The VivoBook E12 is designed from the ground up for on-the-go users. It packs up to 10 hours of working time on one charge, so a user can work or watch movies without searching for power outlets. The VivoBook E12 includes dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi for strong, stable signals and fast data transmission speeds. As an added advantage, 802.11ac Wi-Fi is less prone to interference from other wireless devices operating on the same bandwidth. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam
