Raihaan, Music, gaming or video fan

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
It is has a 15.6 inch screen with less than 2.2kg which is awesume.

The touchscreen is also great but it would have been better if the screen part was portable as the touch screen is hardly used becuase of the touch pad.
Bad points:
Performance is terrible.
It is really slow at opening programes or pratically anything. Takes far too long.
Updates take over 12 hours or more to do which is very annoying as you have to update and shut it down otherwise it wont shut down.
It has no dvd optical drive which is a must for laptops.

Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The sleek and elegant Asus Vivobook S500CA 15.6" Touchscreen Laptop is packed with features to revitalise your home computing life.

Say hello to Windows 8

The Asus S500CA 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.

Popular processing power and storage

Built around a 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3-2365 processor, the Asus Vivobook will deliver all the speed and performance you expect from a great value processor.

A sizeable 500 GB hard drive provides plenty of storage space 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 Vivobook.

Touch screen functionality

Featuring a beautiful HD-ready 10-point 15.6” touchscreen, the Asus Vivobook S500CA 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.

Top flight shared graphics

The Asus S500CA Vivobook features the integrated Intel® HM76 Express Chipset which provides performance tuning, which will allow you to unlock the Intel Core processor by changing the core multiplier, and thus increase frequency, for the best gaming results. 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 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 15.6" Touchscreen Laptop 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.
