Reviews for the Asus VivoBook X403FA, i3-8145U

ASUS VivoBook X403 Review: Endurance Over Performance
Source: Unbox English
At Php 39,995, the X403’s asking price is on the higher end of the spectrum considering it only uses a Core i3 processor and that it cannot be upgraded further. While there are a bunch of things that can make the X403 stand out—512GB NVMe SSD, and 72Wh battery, and aluminum build—it will face tough competition against its rivals who offer a Core i5 Processor at roughly the same price. The X403 is aimed at a specific market: not to those who are into content creation, but more towards digital professionals who are always on the go and have to deal with tons of emails, documents, and presentations on a daily basis.

ASUS VivoBook X403 Hands-On, Quick Review: Budget UltraBook for All-Day Productivity
Source: Unbox English
ASUS is only bringing one variant of the X403 to the Philippines. The configuration consists of a Core-i3-8145U processor, HD Graphics 620 integrated GPU, 4GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and comes in silver blue. Unlike the VivoBook X412, you cannot upgrade the RAM and SSD on the X403—both are soldered into the motherboard.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
