Very good for the price If you’ve checked any interweb reviews of this laptop, you’ll have seen they tend to pick it apart on 3 things:1) Battery Life. The battery does indeed run out fairly quick if you are gaming, especially with WiFi on. Don’t expect more than a couple of hours from this scenario. If however, you knock the screen down to medium brightness and are doing basic productivity tasks like typing up a document, you’ll get nearer 4 hours. Turn off WiFi (it’s a quick hotkey so don’t be afraid to turn it on and off as you need it) and you can be upwards of 5. Not sure what the pro-reviews usually have available, but to me 4-5 hours out of a laptop is very acceptable!2) Keyboard flex. If you press in between the keys, yes it bends a little. When typing however, unless your fists are made of ham, you really shouldn’t have a problem. The keys are quiet and soft, and there’s no obvious click, which may or may not suit your preference. I’ve had no issues with non-responsive keys,…

A solid laptop, but not without its issues The ASUS S400CA is a solid laptop, there’s no denying that fact. However, there are some issues with it that can cause concern, especially since this isn’t a cheap option by any means.So what’s good about the laptop?- It’s stylish looking, light and thin.- Battery life is “good” and I’ve managed to get 4-6 hours from it.- The keyboard is a joy to type on and feedback is good.- Trackpad is large for Windows 8 and is of good quality.- Has a responsive touch screen.- Runs silent and cool, even when performing demanding tasks.- i3 chip, ASUS motherboard and more can handle major tasks (Photoshop, etc.)- Easy to upgrade with both RAM slot and HDD easy to access.- Sports a USB 3 port.Now the negatives:- Touchpad can have a mind of its own and incorrectly register gestures.- Screen reflects sun glare and light too much – but is more than usable in shade / darker environments.- Keyboard can…

a good laptop My current laptop is a 2 year HP Pavilion which is a wonderful machine and hasn’t let me down. Neither did the HP before that which lasted over 15 years. Apparently, according to an (in)famous national computer company salesman, once it gets over 12 months old it becomes a dinosaur. So this laptop has a lot to live up to.The first thing that I noticed was that there was no cd/dvd drive. I know this is the age of the download but I am an old fashioned girl and I like my films and computer programs on a disc in my hand. So for me it was a let-down.When I go into hospital I like to take my laptop with me so that I can do some work or occasionally do a little game playing when I feel up to it; however, when I’m bored (I have no interest in watching the TV soaps, antique or cookery shows) I like to watch tv boxsets or films and this is where Asus have let me down. In hospital you do not have access to wifi so how can I watch my “cloud” movies (almost all of…
