did anyone order? is this an ultrabook?
Quote from DesertCoyote View Post :
you can call anything an ultra book, but I would think that since this is not an SSD drive and is not particularly light, it is not an ultrabook.
Short answer: Yes, this is an ultrabook.

Long answer: "Ultrabook" is a specification and brand developed by Intel for high-end notebooks with screen sizes sub-13" and up to 15.6". Laptop manufacturers have to meet various Intel specs to use the designation "Ultrabook." One of the specs calls for laptop thickness (or thinness) to be less than 0.8" but this laptop has thickness at 0.85". I guess Intel is letting Asus slide on this one.

I don't think Intel had a 4.78 pound laptop in mind when they went with the Ultrabook idea. And as far as Intel letting them get away with it, no where does it state that this is an Ultrabook, only a Vivobook.

Microsoft store listed it as an Ultrabook. Link [microsoftstore.com]

After looking on amazon the S500 isnt i7, its i5. And the S500 doesnt have an optical drive (like it shows in the pictures.)

The specs are actually similar to the V500 which has i7, 8gb ram, BUT still NO optical drive.

I'll say it: shitty resolution. Fire sale of '90s tech. Desperate clearance of antique inventory.

I agree that it is "heavy" when compare to 12" - 13" ultrabooks and tablets, but Asus [asus.com] does say it is an "Ultrabook." So does Microsoft Store [microsoftstore.com].

From what I know, Intel specs for Ultrabook call for a class of low-power Intel CPU, size (dimension), long battery life, resume speed from hibernation, and the use of certain Intel software/firmware. I have never seen any specs on weight.

Trust me .. it best be a laptop.. netbooks either come with intel atoms or amd eFusions.. which suck..

i got 11" acer, 1st gen i3 w/8GB RAM n 128 M4 SSD (crucial) n it flies.. great battery life n pretty lite..

if you're on a budget shoot for an 11 or 12" lappy, at 200 to 300, either new or scratch n dent (like mine) - Also outlet.lenovo.com

I would def NOT spend 450+ on a lapt with said Resolution, no optical drive, perhaps difficulties getting to HDD (to replace w SSD)...

Anyone looking for Haswell machines.. ought to wait/check/save up for toshiba direct's deals..
they have the best prices on haswells, far as I seen... Waiting on double coupon sale again bounce

I'm going to wait for a better resolution generation. All these giant 14"+ with crappy resolution need to be on super clearance to make way for the new higher resolution laptop.

No problem Wink

There are good deals to be had.. I just recently got an i5 3rd gen, 4GB, 500 HDD, 4000 graphics from leny outlet, 380, Shipped.. Not liking W8 n the lapt doesnt have a CAPS light n no F1 to F12 Keys Frown .. thinking of returning it (free returns) - I only got it as a "filler", couple months, while I get a haswell Smilie --- I already did lots of research, & was surprised that Toshiba Direct is offering Haswell chips at Ivy prices... plus Free Ship, n Cash Back..

I slept on a setup I had, quad i7 Haswell, 8GB ram, 1TB hdd, 1080p 15.6", upgrade wifi n BD burner, $680 shipped (after 70OFF700 n RETAILMENOT50OFF coupons) Frown

If anything, check lenny's outlet.. you can get 3rd gen ivy's i5.. starting at $200.. Yep, two bills, 1yr warrty
