Usage

The ASUS VivoBook X202E is really compact and feels very sturdy and well-made. It is slim and light enough for you to carry it around. The keyboard is comfortable and precise.

The touchscreen is also precise and we felt comfortable using it. However, it becomes quickly covered in finger marks, and we had to clean it frequently.

The combination of a low-clock CPU and the Windows 8 was a little enervating: sometimes, we felt the computer “sluggish,” taking too long mostly for launching programs. Maybe the speed of the hard disk drive also affected this.

The sound quality is surprisingly good for such a small laptop.

In order to check the battery life, we ran the Powermark program from Futuremark, which simulates the average utilization of the laptop (web surfing, text typing, video playing, and 3D graphics) and estimates the battery duration. Powermark estimated battery life at 2 hours and 48 minutes.
