Excellent piece of kit.,
This review is from: Asus S400CA 14-inch Touchscreen VivoBook (4GB RAM, 500GB HDD) (Personal Computers)
Bought this from PCWorld for £450. Was after a replacement for my dell i3 which died after 1.5 years of use. :(. Anyway, first thing i did was to add more RAM (which is very easy to do: youtube...) . Installed, devstudio 2012, office 2010, Oracle virtualbox etc. Dont care much for the touch screen, in fact i'd. rather do without it. Dont like Windows 8, but Start8 makes it fun to use.
Note, the processor is a dual core i7 (bottom of the range i7) but it scores only .6 behind a £900 Lenovo quad core i7 laptop. :)
-ve points: Pointless touch screen, small hdd 500gb (partioned into C and D Why???.), no CD/DVD drive.
+ve points: very light,, good battery life, remains cool to touch even after 8 hours of constant use, good keyboard, build quality ( much better than dell), usb3 port on right hand side,

You mean there's no CD drive? to play CD's and DVD's?

Correct, that's what I thought and I'm a software developer! However, just ask yourself: How often do I use a CD/DVD? Infrequently. And for that I bought a portable CD/DVD unit.
Thinking about it, I suppose that that's what makes it so light.
