Reviews for the Asus VivoBook W202NA-YS02

ASUS W202 review – affordable entry-level device for students
Source: Laptop Media English
Don’t forget the fact that this is a super low-budget offer that isn’t meant to be a daily driver. Even ASUS are describing this device as “best learning companion” so, this fella is created with a purpose – in most cases, it’ll be used in elementary schools or parents will buy this laptop for their kids for online tuition, homework, and occasionally – entertainment. In this situation, minimalism is king – one or two browser tabs are fine but don’t be too greedy because the RAM is always full. Of course, text editing isn’t a problem if there aren’t any other memory-hungry tasks in the background. We tried a bunch of 1080p movies and everything was fine except the fact that the TN screen has a low sRGB coverage, bad viewing angles, and it offers just a 768p resolution. Thankfully, the backlight doesn’t use aggressive PWM for brightness adjustment, though.

80% Asus VivoBook W202NA Review
Source: Laptop Mag English Archive.org version
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.

Review: Asus VivoBook W202 with Windows 10 S
Source: Computerworld.com English Archive.org version
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.

80% Asus VivoBook W202

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.

Intel HD Graphics 500: 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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Celeron N3350: An Apollo Lake family, dual-core, ultra-low-power processor (SoC) that saw the light of day in 2016. Its two cores run at 1.1 GHz to 2.4 GHz; these are not Hyper-Threading-enabled meaning there are no additional threads. This chip has a fairly competent integrated graphics solution, the Intel HD Graphics 500, and eats very little (~6 W). The Celeron N3350 is based on the Goldmont CPU microarchitecture that came to replace Silvermont (2013), bringing with it several welcome improvements. The CPU is Secure Boot-compatible; technically, it will have no issue running 64-bit Windows 11. The average N3350 in our database is just as fast as the venerable Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 is in multi-thread loads; the two cores of this Celeron trail behind a single core of any half-decent CPU such as the Intel Core i3-7130U.» 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.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
