Much better than the price suggests Firstly, I’m a fan of Win8 but having run the pre-release and consumer preview on a non-touch laptop, I realised it’s limitations on non-touch hardware. So I’ve been waiting for Win8 (not Win-RT) tablets/keyboard convertables (I need the keyboard for work) to appear since Win8’s launch. Availability has been shockingly poor up to now and what’s out there is stupidly expensive when compared to other OS or form-factor offerings. Then comes along Asus and their VivoBook range. Whilst I wasn’t looking for an Ultrabook format, the price and spec of this range just can’t be ignored. So I took the plunge and ordered the i5 (Ivybridge) version. At a little over £500 for an i5, ultrabook style AND touch screen (you need to pay almost a grand for this type of spec on a convertable), my expectation were quite low as to quality of materials. I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised. The VivoBook uses a combination of aluminium and quality plastic to deliver a very pleasant, quality feel…

I am glad I bought this I’ve only had the machine for a day and I’m impressed. It looks superb, I even like the keyboard, a first for me on a laptop. When it arrived I thought the package contained the carrying case I had also ordered it was so light. The screen is crisp and sharp. Booting the the machine is a delight, it’s so fast. it takes seconds.A key thing for me is the heat generated, after all a laptop should be usable in your lap. It’s been on for over 4 hours and the base of the machine is barely warm.My only gripe is the keyboard, not the use of it. It has the best response and feel of any laptop I have used and I’ve used a lot of them. The problem is that while there is space for a proper numeric keypad it doesn’t have one.Now even though this a separate issue I would like to say something about windows 8. What the hell, have Microsoft finally got it right? It’s so easy to use. I have have an android tablet and boy is the OS rubbish, but Win8 is a doddle, it’s…
