Quote from azneonguy View Post :
just heads up for those on the fence a few things that notebook check found. Now whether the US model is different I would be interested in hearing.....

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Revi...787.0.html


GPU Performance

While the throttling of the CPU isn't really noticeable during daily use, the performance of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU does not even remotely reach the levels we normally see. We recorded only 293 points for 3DMark 11 and 830 points for the 3DMark Vantage benchmark (performance preset) - about 50 to 70 percent below the values we have come to expect. The reason for the substantial difference is throttling yet again: the GPU doesn't even come close to approaching its maximum clock speed of 1050 Mhz. The net result is that the graphics performance of the GPU is even lower than the one of the predecessor HD Graphics 3000.


during our stress test with Prime95 and FurMark, the Core i3 exceeds temperatures of 80 degrees Celsius (176 degrees Fahrenheit) within a few seconds - and throttling starts at this point. After one hour we recorded temperatures of almost 100 degrees Celsius (212 degrees Fahrenheit) - even though the processor and GPU are running at the very low clock speeds of 800 and 300 MHz, respectively. Our second review model with the Pentium 987 didn't fare any better, which leads us to the conclusion that the cooling system is simply not up to the task. Unless Asus can increase the RPM of the system fan via a BIOS update, we would expect even more severe issues during the warmer seasons.

Take it from a person who actually owns this laptop and uses it every single day.

IT HAS ZERO OVERHEATING ISSUES. I can leave the laptop on my bed while watching tv and its FINE. I can place it back on my lap. IT WILL NOT BURN ME. 3rd generation Ivy i3s run COOL compared to second generation sandys.

Running prime 95 on a any laptop to prove a point doesn't make any sense. Laptops aren't for gaming or workstation uses.

Try telling your boss that you run Photoshop, video rendering software, and CAD on a laptop and the'll laugh at you.

Everyone who is dissing this laptop tries to compare it to a gaming i7 desktop. It's ridiculous.

For all those who need a laptop to carry around. THIS IS THE LAPTOP TO BUY.

If you are looking for a desktop replacement, this laptop is tiny and is not for you. You probably want a 15" laptop.

lol @ this

people and their miseducated knowledge on computer components...especially ram...
Wait IDK what you mean? I am knowledgeable, imo, but I did not know this laptop had the RAM soldered on... Usually most laptops I own, have RAM slots right next to HD bay, so I assumed this was the same.

Yes, just replace the wifi chip with an intel centrino one and it will be WiDi ready. Better yet, put a 256 gb SSD hard drive in there and you've got the best $600 ultrabook.

I have this exact laptop, this is an insane deal. I paid 525 for it. It plays 1080p just fine and has HDMI. Its the perfect laptop for any student to carry with them to class.

The quality is insane for such a low priced laptop. TOP END BUILD QUALITY AND HAS TOUCH SCREEN. BUY IT!.

P.S. This laptop also includes 1 year of accidental warranty and no dead pixel guarantee!
Have you tried writing with it? How does it work with a stylus/does it work well with one?

I am curious on the same thing. I found this [tonymacx86.com] but it will take some work.

Do you follow deals on 11.6" laptops?

Because that is what brings it up into this price category. Those specs look pretty tame but when you put it into this sized chassis prices go up. This is a good deal.
I dont, I follow 13.3+

Yes, its a capacitive touch screen with glass. It is very responsive and works well with a stylus.

My apologies, but I have made a mistake. Best Buy, OfficeMax, Staples, Costco, Microsoft Store, Office Depot, and Walmart are excluded from Asus ADP program.

This laptop does not include 1 year of accidental damage protection. I apologize to anyone who purchased this thinking it did. But you can return it to a Staples store within 14 days no questions asked.

Saw this on the Amazon Review on X202:
"
Q200E-BHI3T45: 2nd-gen i3, Intel HD 3000, single antenna (black wire only), no bluetooth, BestBuy exclusive
S200E-RHI3T73: 3rd-gen i3, Intel HD 4000, single antenna (black wire only), no bluetooth, comes with external DVD, Staples exclusive(?)
X202E-DH31T : 3rd-gen i3, Intel HD 4000, dual antenna (black & white wires), bluetooth, various retailers"
does single antenna means it has a weaker reception compare to dual antenna?

That's because it doesn't have a SSD cash. I replaced hard disk with a samsung 840 pro. I installed windows 8 pro in it. Man, the computer is faster than my core i5 laptop with regular hard drive now. No lag at all. I love this laptop now! I use it for my work now.

when?LMAO

in for 1.

this is a hot deal, and honestly, anyone who says otherwise hasn't been paying attention to the reviews for the vivobook line in general, or the prices of similar competitors.

this laptop is ridiculously well built and sturdy for a 399 touchscreen windows 8 machine (with a 3rd gen i3 processor to boot.)
