Asus has reportedly added two new models, called X202 (11.6”) and S400 (14.1”), to its VivoBook line-up of portable computers. Both notebooks are running on a Windows 8 operating system and are equipped with touchscreen panels. According to a report from Liliputing, the two systems are now available to customers for pre-order at Amazon, priced at $599 and $699, respectively.
Apparently, the VivoBook X202 is an 11.6-inch laptop that weighs 2.9lbs and features an LED-backlit touchscreen display of 1366-by-768 pixels maximum supported resolution. In addition, it sports a third-generation ultra-low voltage Intel Core i3-3217U processor that houses two cores (4 threads) clocked at 1.8GHz and the integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU. Customers are further provided with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 500GB mechanical hard drive.
Measuring 0.8-inch thick, the X202 packs one USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, a built-in web camera, Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 radios.
Moving up the price ladder, the VivoBook S400 is outfitted with a 14.1-inch touchscreen display of the same HD native resolution. Moreover, the 4.4lbs device is powered by a Dual-Core, Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5-3317U ULV chip that operates at a base frequency of 1.7GHz (goes up to 2.6GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0) and has 17W max TDP.
Under the hood, this notebook offers 4GB of memory, the same 500GB HDD and a 24GB solid-state drive. Other specs supposedly include USB 3.0 connectivity, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, an integrated web camera for video conferencing and a media card reader slot.
The Asus is expected to start shipping the VivoBook X202 and S400 models after the official release of Microsoft’s new OS tomorrow.
