ASUS making fantastic laptops! This VivoBook is quite impressive., August 5, 2013

This review is from: ASUS VivoBook S500CA-US71T Touchscreen Ultrabook Windows 8 (Personal Computers)
PROS:
- THE PRICE! Retail is $799 but you can find it for under $700 now. For what you get, it is a solid deal.
- Fantastic style! This laptop just LOOKS fantastic, and lives up to its looks with most of its specs.
- i7
- Perfectly sized 15.6 inch VivoBook, not too small to strain your eyes but not TOO huge to carry around.
- It has a 24GB SSD along with the 500GB hard drive that makes starting up and shutting down the computer happen in ~5 seconds! Especially with Windows 8.
- Touch screen is lag free and flawless! Finally works fantastic with Windows 8 because they’re FINALLY getting plenty of apps ported over.
- Plenty of memory, and 8 GB of RAM. This laptop won’t run slow at all.
- Stays cool where your palms rest and the speakers work well.
- HD Webcam

CONS:

(1366×768) Resolution. On a 15.6 inch screen, this could get frustrating if you’re trying to watch super HD videos and such. It’s ok, but not exceptional.

Overall, I reckon if you can place up with the resolution or you won’t be watching too many movies or doing something that requires 1080p, this is a fantastic laptop that is well sized and decently light at 4.8 pounds for the size and price tag. It’s quick, starts and shuts down quickly, touch screen is fantastic, and it runs Windows 8 which continues to improve. Excellent for college students and business professionals who need a laptop, but be wary that the battery life will not go over 4-5 hours.

I own 2 of these. One of which is still new. Debating on promotion it or giving it to my friend who loved it when he used mine!

Im pleased with this laptop is thin and light, when I bought it I was apprehensive about some critics about the keyboard, but I feel comfortable with it, so far.

The design is very nice and everything is working perfectly, has a i7 intel processor that is maybe more than I need, but is not simple to find a touch laptop like this for the price I paid (~620), so I chose to buy it.
I haven’t tested the battery life completely, but I can estimate that is about 3.5 hours.

Lets just say this thing is coming apart.
All was well when i first bought this ultra book but through normal use the screws that hold the bottom on are breaking loose from the plastic due to opening and closing the lid.
