Reviews for the Asus VivoBook W202NA-YS02
Source: Laptop Mag
The $279 Asus VivoBook W202NA is a rugged and affordable laptop ideal for younger students. With an offering of basic ports, excellent audio, good performance and long battery life, the W202NA is good for both work and play. This design can also take a tumble and keep on ticking. However, its poor webcam and creaky trackpad leaves the door open for competitors.

At $280, the Asus VivoBook W202 is a reliable general-purpose system. It’s a bargain for deploying to those who rely on off-the-shelf software, but you might find that its software and networking restrictions make it a nonstarter in your company.

The Asus VivoBook W202 combines an attractive price, a durable chassis, and specs that result in performance that's among the best in its class (though by no means adequate for more intensive computing tasks). The W202 is aimed at students, but it should really appeal to anyone who's constantly on the go and needs a basic productivity machine that will shrug off spills and scratches and won't fall apart on the way in and out of a purse or backpack. On the other hand, if you're looking for a basic laptop for casual computing around the house, the Acer Swift 1 is a better choice for its larger screen, USB-C port, and sleeker design.
