Asus has priced the VivoBook F202E aggressively at Rs 40,000, which makes it the only laptop of its kind in its price bracket—an entry-level ultraportable Windows 8 laptop with a touchscreen. If you feel its feature set and performance are tailored for your needs, this laptop deserves to be at the top of your shopping list—rest assured you won’t be disappointed.

70% Review: ASUS VivoBook F202E
Source: Techtree.com English Archive.org version
The ASUS VivoBook F202E is a stylish notebook that is very light and compact, making it very easy to carry around. The Core i3 CPU and 4 GB RAM ensures swift operations most of the times and it is certainly remarkably faster than Atom-based notebooks. The speakers sound loud and clear and the laptop can easily crunch 1080p movies, although the screen supports 720p native display. The screen is quite responsive to touch inputs, but it is too dim and very reflective, making it difficult to view in bright environments. The battery power is also not the best, considering the low power components. However, considering that it is priced rather well at Rs 40,000 and that it comes bundled with Windows 8 Pro, this laptop can be termed as a good buy. It is also one of the most affordable Windows 8 laptops with a touchscreen.

It is quite a surprise that Asus positions this machine as a laptop, and not an ultrabook. But, honestly, we do not mind. The focus needs to be on the fact that it offers fairly acceptable performance in a very compact form factor. Almost the ultrabook-ish compactness, if you may. But, do note that the performance is fairly toned down, and will not be anywhere close to the likes of the Core i3 on the HP Pavilion G6-2227tu. And for the price the F202E is retailing for, the build quality is pretty much the proverbial cherry on the proverbial cake. It is a good deal for someone buying their first laptop and for students who want the portability aspect.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

3217U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.8 GHz (no Turbo Boost) and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.60":

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. is a major Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer based in Taipei, founded in 1989. Under the Asus brand name, the company manufactures a wide range of products, including laptops, desktops, motherboards, graphics cards, monitors, smartphones and networking equipment, complete systems and PC components for end users.

Under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand name, ASUS manufactures gaming laptops known by gamers for their powerful specifications, dedicated graphics cards, high refresh rate displays and advanced cooling systems.

Beyond gaming, a wide range of notebooks are offered for different needs and budgets, from ultra-slim and lightweight ultrabooks to versatile 2-in-1 convertibles and budget-friendly options. In 2023, Asus had a 7% global market share of the PC market.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.


73.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
