Hard to beat this kind of value, November 7, 2012
By D. Simone "oodanner"
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
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

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 with no problems. So I paid 40 bucks on Amazon for a refurbished Belkin Screencast and 32.00 for the intel card. Now for 72.00 bucks I'm able to use my 55" HDTV at 1080p as a second screen.

Update 11/14/2012
I finally got around to installing an SSD drive and replacing the mechanical drive. The drive that came in it was a Hitachi HTS5450A7E380 which is a 7mm thick drive. Unfortunately the SSD I had was a typical 9.5mm and was too thick to work at first. Luckily I was able to remove part of the casing on the SSD drive I used and that made for a perfect fit. So if you plan on swapping out for an SSD make sure it is no thicker than 7mm or it won't fit. I had some trouble where the laptop kept booting into the BIOS. when I went in and disabled fast boot as well as turned of drive security or something like that. I can't remember exactly now but, when the option is enabled you can go further into the BIOS and see PKI keys and DDB keys and a lot of other keys. I just disabled that portion and then it started recognizing the hard drive. This may not be a problem if you clone the hard drive to the SSD before you swap but, I did a fresh install. Laptop is blazing fast now as it boots into windows in about 10 seconds.

This review is from: ASUS VivoBook X202E-DH31T 11.6-Inch Touch Laptop (Personal Computers)
This arrived within 18 hours of ordering it from Amazon. I also ordered a Samsung SSD drive to replace the stock (slow) traditional hard drive. The new SSD didn't arrive until a few days later so I had plenty of time to remove most of the ASUS software (not difficult to do) and go through all of the Windows Updates and install all of the applications that I use (office, VLC etc).

Those who complain about Windows 8 need to give it a few days - it is different but with this laptop's touch screen its quite a nice way to navigate and use applications. Think of it as a more powerful and useful tablet and you have it.

I upgraded the hard drive to a Samsung 840 SSD, you also need to buy a USB to SATA adapter (Amazon stock it all). Samsung supply the software to copy the data onto the SSD and replacing the hard drive with the SSD takes less than an hour (which is spent mostly waiting for the copy to complete). Easy. With the SSD the shutdown and start up (already quick with Win 8) are incredibly quick (a few seconds each), application start quickly and any slowness seen before simply goes away. Fabulous.

I bought this as a laptop for the train and plane. It doesn't replace anything (other than an old Mac laptop). This ASUS is built incredibly well - perhaps not up to the standard of the Macbook Pros we also have but its close (and it less than half the cost).

Very impressive.

Excellent budget machine for travel, May 29, 2013

This review is from: ASUS VivoBook X202E-DH31T-SL 11.6-Inch Touchscreen Laptop ( Silver ) (Personal Computers)
Bought this machine for travel to destinations where I do not want to take an MB Air due to high risk of theft. Use the machine to upload and backup pictures and video from my camera, video conferencing, email, web browsing. Installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS so I get all speed and usability of Mac, virus free environment with excellent applications.
  • What's great.
  • The machine is very tough - dropped it on the vinyl covered concrete floor from my desk twice the day I got it - I am used to the Mac power supply's magnetic connector that just pulls out if you get tangled in the cord. Expected the screen to break or something - not a problem and not a dent. Surprisingly, just found yesterday, the warranty covers drops and water damage. The machine performed excellent for several months. One big issue with Linux on it - does not always suspend or hibernate.
  • SD card reader, webcam, bluetooth, touchscreen
  • HDMI output. Works better than MB AIr when plugging a TV and watching Picasa web full screen. Actually, MB Air does not want to do it at all: switches to the laptop monitor.
  • Cable lock slot - not available on MB Air and handy when travelling.
  • Large hard drive so you can backup video and photos.
  • Not so great. In comparison with MB AIr 13 ( granted, MB Air costs twice as much):
  • No lighted keyboard
  • weighs as much as MB Air 13 but has 11.6 screen
  •  runs real hot if you are watching a movie
  • build quality but, again, fine for the money.
  • Win 8 is horrible: both performance and usability. I have to connect to different wireless hotspots on the go and it is not easy with any Windows as well as any other admin task. Just to find them in Win 8 creates a lot of aggravation.
Excellent Value, May 29, 2013
By Gerald J Bean
This review is from: ASUS VivoBook X202E-DH31T 11.6-Inch Touch Laptop (Personal Computers)
I teach at a university and found myself in need of a small portable computer for class presentations and demos. I considered a Mac but was constrained by some of the Windows-only applications I use. It didn't make any sense to do a Mac dual-boot arrangement since people typically buy Macs because they like OS X, not Windows. Also, while I had successfully resisted Windows 8 I finally realized I needed to stay technologically current.

A few months ago I found the Asus X202e at a local Microcenter for $499 and took the plunge. At that price, why not? My experience with the machine has been nothing but positive. It is small and relatively light-weight but has a solid feel and good build quality. It attaches to classroom media interfaces without a hitch and smoothly runs all the programs I need for my instruction (PowerPoint, statistical packages). Further, and at the risk of severe censure, I like Windows 8. As would be expected, there was a bit of a learning curve but it wasn't as steep as I thought it would be. I have not taken full advantage of the touchscreen but plan to work that into my workflow as need be.

As a side note, I also do some ballroom dance djing. It turns out that the X202e is a handy little music-playing platform. I use a free dj program called VirtualDJ that has a fairly complicated and graphically demanding interface (at least it seems so). I also use iTunes. In either case, the X202e plays songs with ease and with good quality. While I typically don't 'scratch' while playing songs, the touch screen can be used to create effects and might be of use to more advanced djs. Its size and weight are also benefits when packing up or setting up a sound system.

In summary, this little computer is an excellent value. In fact, much to my irritation, Microcenter was selling them for $399 over the holiday and now sells them for $449. At this price, you have a bargain.
