    Hard to beat this kind of value, November 7, 2012

    This review is from: ASUS VivoBook X202E-DH31T 11.6-Inch Touch Laptop (Personal Computers)

    For roughly 550.00 this can hardly be beat for a small laptop that has windows 8 and a touchscreen. At first I was a little aggravated with the touch pad but, I installed the drivers from Samsung’s website that are supposed to be for a series 5 laptop. This laptop along with several others have the same Elan touch pad in them. Once you install this driver it is a night and day difference in the touchpad.

    The link for the drivers is in the first comment. Amazon won’t let you link to an external website in the main review.

    So go to the comment and get to the link then follow what is below.

    You then need to click on the Manuals and Downloads link, then click Driver.
    After that scroll down and click on the ZIP link for the Touch Pad driver 11.7.2.1

    If you have the sorry Asus Smart Gesture installed, uninstall that first and reboot, then install this software. I have had various Macbooks for the better part of the last 7 years and this is my first PC laptop in a while. I was almost ready to return this laptop until I found these drivers. I would say the touch pad is 95% of a Macbook touch pad now and whether you like Apple or not, you have to admit they know what they are doing when it comes to track pads. Aside from all of that I’m extremely happy with the operation of this laptop now.

    I am coming from a laptop that had an SSD drive in it so it does seem a little slow in some areas but, others it is working just fine. I have an extra SSD drive that I plan on putting in this machine as well as removing the half height mini PCI atheros wireless/bluetooth combo. I purchased an Intel Centrino 6235anhmw Mini Pci Express Bluetooth 4.0 to replace it with and based on my research I should be able to enable Intel Wireless Display on this laptop after that install. The card only cost me 30.00 bucks and I figured it was worth the gamble to see if it would work. I’ll update this review once I get the card in a couple of days to state if it worked or not.

    The sound coming from this laptop is actually quite good and I would say better than a lot of the previous laptops I am use to.

    The touchscreen is extremely responsive and I haven’t had any missed touches or erratic behavior out of it. I have played several touch based games and it worked flawlessly.

    Last but, not least this thing is solid, the build quality on it is exceptional for something this cheap.

    Okay, now for the bad which again considering this is a cheap laptop with a touchscreen really isn’t that bad.

    The fan runs constantly and while it is not overly annoying it does seem to run even when not doing much on the system. That is really my main complaint about the machine at this point. The second complaint is that the viewing angles on this machine are pretty poor but, again don’t expect any machine at this price point with a touchscreen to have great viewing angles. Although viewing angles are bad, brightness is very good. I think with the brightness turned all the way up you could possibly do permanent damage to your eyes(a joke of course).

    The keyboard is a little cramped but, really not all that bad. I would say I have slightly above average hand size but, again it isn’t to bad and I’m able to kick out a reasonable speed without to many more mistakes than I usually make. Expect some adjustment if you are coming from a full size keyboard with large hands.

    Again, the stock hard drive is a 5400rpm drive and it does seem a little slow for me but, if you are coming from another mechanical drive then you may not really notice it as a problem. I’ve been using SSD drives for some time so it does bother me a bit.

    These might be major problems for others but, for me they are minor annoyances that I can live with on a cheap machine like this. This is basically an 11.6″ Macbook Air that is missing the SSD(entry level is 64GB SSD), backlit keyboard, viewing angles aren’t as good for the ASUS and fan runs more often than Macbook Air. However the Macbook Air doesn’t have these features: touch screen, 500GB HDD that can be upgraded to a small or large SSD if you like and the Air cost about 450.00 more for the entry level. Granted the Macbook Air is considerably lighter but, it also makes your wallet lighter.

    Sorry for all of the Macbook comparisons but, I have come from many years of having Macbooks and decided with Windows 8 to give PCs a try again. I’m glad I did.

    Update 11/8/2012:
    I installed the Intel wireless card I mentioned above, then installed the latest drivers for the card from the Intel website as well as the latest video drivers from the ASUS website. Then I installed the Widi display software and was able to connect to my Belkin Screencast. It took several tries and then it finally updated the software on the Belkin. After that it has been connecting perfectly…

    This review is from: ASUS VivoBook X202E-DH31T 11.6-Inch Touch Laptop (Personal Computers)

    I’m an IT professional, and have dealt with a few ASUS laptops, which I now prefer to Dell.

    If you take remove the 9 phillips screws on the bottom, you have access to some of the internal components.
    You will need to tug a little, as the case is still held in place by little plastic clippies all around.
    You might break a nail, so be careful.

    MEMORY:
    The memory is soldered into the board, so 4GB is all you will ever have. Period.

    DISK DRIVE:
    The HDD is a Hitachi HTS5450A7E380 (7mm 2.5″) and can be replaced with another “Low Profile” 7mm SSD or HDD. You simply remove 3 screws that hold the cage in (the 4th screw is already removed from removing the back panel), remove the cage, remove 4 screws holding drive in cage, replace with a SATA II/III drive. (It is a SATA 3 6.0 GB/s connection).
    I recommend the Samsung 840 series, as they are 7mm 2.5″ and very low on power usage. When you remove the old HDD, it has a plastic backing glued on it with two rubber foam strips.
    Don’t worry with removing it from the old HDD. An SSD doesn’t need the shock absorption and will be mounted securely with the screws.

    WIRELESS:
    The Atheros AR5B225 Half Mini PCIe WiFi/Bluetooth 4.0 module is replaceable.
    I am replacing mine with Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 so I can use WiDi and Dual Band Wifi.
    It was as easy as removing the two antenna wires from the Atheros, popping in new card, reattaching two antenna wires to the Intel 6235.

    BATTERY:
    The 5136 mAh 2 cell battery is replaceable, albeit proprietary. Not sure what this means for the future.

    MY GENERAL OPINION OF THE LAPTOP and Windows 8:

    I have been using Windows 8 at work for a bit, and as an OS, it’s hard and confusing with a dual monitor desktop power user setup (as I have no need for the Metro interface there, and I feel like I’m fighting it). I had to tweak it to get my start menu back (Open source utility called “Classic Start”). However, with a touch screen laptop, it is very easy to use. I’ve been thoroughly been enjoying it as a tablet replacement. I admit, I did install an SSD in it, and it is SO much more responsive now (and shaved some ounces on weight as well has dropping at least a watt of power draw). I also have access to a Windows 8 volume license key, and mine is running Windows 8 Enterprise.

    Not too big, not too small, just right, October 28, 2012

    This review is from: ASUS VivoBook X202E-DH31T 11.6-Inch Touch Laptop (Personal Computers)

    I bought mine from the Microsoft store a couple days ago. This review does not cover my experience with Windows 8.

    I’ve been looking for a new machine to carry on trips and to do presentations with to customers. So, it has to have the ability to do emails, browsing, pdf display, have a vga out connector, and a usb connector for the remote.

    I’ve used larger laptops on trips, and smaller ones. This one seems about just the right size and weight. I’ve always hated the touchpads on them, and would use a plugin external mouse. To my pleasure, the touchscreen interface eliminates most of the problems with the touchpad.

    The machine does all that I require, and exceeds my expectations with a giant disk drive. I’m surprised by how much I like it. It feels solid and well made. It boots and shuts down faster than any other machine I’ve had.

    On the downside, I would like to have the retina display, and the machine isn’t silent – there’s the fan and the rotating disk drive which makes a little noise when you tilt the machine. I’d rather have an SSD, but I did not take any stars off for these issues because they would have added considerably to the price.
