ASUS VIVOBOOK F202E: Value for money
Truth be told, the VivoBook has what it takes to be a solid ultra-portable laptop. The keyboard is excellent for touch typists. Battery life is a reasonable five hours or so and the power charger adapter is relatively small. The sound quality of the speakers is surprisingly good. And it weighs only 1.6 kg. What’s more, the ASUS VivoBook F202E is available at an affordable price point of Rs.39,999.
For the design, ASUS appears to have taken an approach that retains the sleek angled chassis we saw on the Transformer tablets, and to an extent, the Zen series of laptops ASUS released last year. There’s no metal in the build here, replaced with plastic on this computer, although it does have a brushed metal look. The bottom of the computer features a soft-touch plastic that offers a decent grip, and even though the top of the computer is slick when collapsed, it’s not hard to hold at all.
However, it’s the display that really sets the VivoBook apart. The screen on this model sits at 11.6 inches, higher than the 10.1 inch netbook craze from a few years ago, but smaller than the 13.3 and 15 inch notebooks in abundance today. There is a 1366 x 768 screen resolution (with a 16:9 ratio), which is suitable for movie viewing. The display delivers gorgeous-looking images and text. A Web camera sits at the top of the 11.6-inch screen, offering video conferencing in 720p HD.
The VivoBook has the latest Microsoft Windows 8 operating system
