Claire, General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Battery life lasts longer than the average laptop.
It looks really nice, is a very manageable weight and size.
It is a fast-paced laptop once it gets the start-up operations sorted.
Really good value for money, couldn't ask for better really!
Bad points:
Design-wise, it outer casing picks up fingerprints very easily, but so what?
I think Asus have tried too hard to make this laptop open up within a very short period of time, so it does need an extra minute or two to sort out the initial start-up operations.

Manufacturer's Description

Experience Windows 8

The Asus S500CA-CJ019H Vivobook is equipped with the latest Windows operating system iteration, Windows 8. This OS features a colourful and app style tiled interface allowing you to catch up with the latest updates from your contacts, the news, your social networking feeds and the weather, all of which update in real-time.

Cloud-connected, Windows 8 allows you to access all of your files and settings on other compatible devices once they have been saved in your cloud space.

A range of in-built apps will provide you with bounteous entertainment and communication options, such as the Xbox app. Working together seamlessly, additional downloadable apps from the Windows store will make using your new laptop a piece of cake.

As the Windows 8 operating system can run on low-powered processors, your device can work for longer on a single charge and makes using your laptop more energy efficient.

Windows 8 works just as well with a touchscreen as it does with a keyboard and mouse, meaning this laptop can be at the heart of your work and entertainment world, whether you choose to tap and swipe using the touchscreen when browsing apps or use the touchpad for more precise work.

Steadfast processing and storage

Built around a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5- 3317U processor, the Asus S500CA-CJ017H Vivobook will deliver top-of the line performance for even your most demanding tasks and will allow you to switch seamlessly between applications.

A sizeable 500 GB hard drive provides ample storage for all of your multimedia files. With capacity for up to 125,000 songs or 160,000 photos all of your treasured files will be safely housed in the Asus S500CA-CJ017H Vivobook.

Touch screen functionality

Featuring a beautiful HD-ready 10-point 15.6” touchscreen the Asus S500CA-CJ017H Vivobook interacts perfectly with Windows 8 and boasts Smart Gesture Technology and ASUS Instant Functions.

You will be able to effortlessly swipe, pinch, tap and scroll around your screen, menus and apps with unparalleled ease, fluidity and intuition and marvel at the sharp and crisp imagery.

Smart graphics

The Asus S500CA-CJ017H Vivobook features the integrated Intel® HD Graphics which provides fast and responsive gaming action, in combination with highly realistic visuals, without the cost of a separate graphics card.

This coupled with the back-lit LED screen and built-in stereo speakers with Sonicmaster Audio Technology, will make for an excellent viewing experience for games and films.

Extensive connectivity

Enjoy super fast data transfers with the USB 3.0 port, and wireless transfers thanks to the built-in Bluetooth technology. With both VGA and HDMI ports allowing you to hook up your laptop to a TV screen, the Asus S500CA-CJ017H Vivobook can serve as an entertainment hub when only large screen viewing will do.

A front-facing high definition web cam will make it easy to stay in touch with friends and relatives, and thanks to the SD memory card reader you will be able to easily share your own photos and home videos.

With in-built 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless, the Asus S500CA-CJ017H Vivobook is ideal for connecting to your home network for downloading music and films, or to a WiFi hotspot for a quick status update when you are grabbing a coffee.

With no optical drive to weigh it down and up to 5 hours of battery life the Asus S500CA-CJ017H Vivobook 15.6" Touchscreen Laptop brings a first rate computing performance to the home, office and the commute.
