ASUS VivoBook S200 (X202e) – the cheapest laptop with touch screen and Windows 8

ASUS VivoBook S200 (X202e) proved to be a good laptop. Provides good performance with quality materials, comes with standard ports, running on Windows 8 to benefit from touchscreen.

For quite a while, most portable manufacturers have brought us old game refreshes with new configurations, but nothing special. After the launch of Windows 8, the laptop market has been resurrected. Began to appear interesting laptops with configuration, appearance, uses, performance and the fashion touch screen appeared.

One of these models is VivoBook ASUS S200, called first X201. Last fall, for a few days, I ave tried such a portable with a 11.6-inch touchscreen. The problem was that I had to play on a demo account and I could not log in to my account in Windows 8. This has limited my testing operations. Any install and save disappear at every restart.

ASUS VivoBook S200 has an attractive design, durable and portable. The design keeps elements from the Zenbook series, and FROM the Eee PC Flare netbooks. Integrates the ASUS SonicMaster sound and instant-on feature that allows resumption of work in 2 seconds. ASUS VivoBook S200 brings a new and pleasant experience in using a laptop. Benefit from quality materials and good construction.

From the technological point of view, S200 VivoBook's first purpose was to provide an intuitive and complete work experience optimized for the Windows 8 environment. Its touch is more than a simple function, is the essence of VivoBook's experience.

ASUS VivoBook S200

The tested model was based on ULV processor Core i series from Intel, 4GB RAM, large hard drive and Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics. For my everyday activities, ASUS VivoBook S200 did very well. I used it for blogging, some programming, image processing, internet, work desk and a small TV applications. We watched movies and listened to music without problems and I was really impressed by the sound quality. Not comparable with N series models, but offers clear sound and quality far beyond what has most laptops on the market.

The 11.6 inch display is TN and its quality is not great. Doesn't offer great viewing angles, but the colors are nice and very practical with multi-touch technology.

Before appearing touch-screen laptops, I thought that would be their role. After several tests I realized that sometimes I need a touch screen. There are applications that can be used much better with the touch screen without using the keyboard and mouse. VivoBook ASUS S200 is very well optimized for Windows 8.

I liked the keyboard. It is full size chiclet type, not very noisy and quite ok for fast typing. The touchpad is large, "borrowed" from ZenBook series. And the ports chapter is pretty good. Comes with 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 HDMI port, 1 RJ-45 port, 1 VGA port and power port.

How I use ASUS S200 is not overheating, but the fan worked non-stop and sometimes became rowdy. It's understandable to be so for a 11.6-inch laptop with a good configuration. Perhaps some will get disturb or get used. I would not recommend you to hold it in your arms because the vents are on the bottom.

The whole system is maintained by a 2-cell battery range of up to 4 hours. Here I think it could install a slightly larger battery and up to 8 hours autonomy was perfect. Unfortunately you do not have too easy access to the battery and I do not think you can do an upgrade yet.

Conclusion

VivoBook ASUS S200 (X202e) proved to be a very fine laptop. Provides good performance, with quality materials, comes with standard port and is running on Windows 8 to benefit from touchscreen. The price is a main asset for ASUS S200.

VivoBook ASUS S200 (X202e) strengths:

  •  Price
  •  Good quality materials
  •  Good configuration
  •  Keyboard and touchpad

VivoBook ASUS S200 (X202e) weaknesses:

  •   Weak TN display in viewing angles
  • - Modest autonomy for a 11.6-inch laptop

I recommend ASUS VivoBook S200 for those who want a small laptop, stylish, easy to carry and provides good performance for various daily activities. It is a good model for travel, although its autonomy is not too high.
