Top Customer Reviews
cons: no cd/dvd player
It was a good choice.
2) touch screen responsive big plus
3) terrible battery life , normal usage will give you 2.5 hours of battery life , video playback gives you less then 2 hours which is terrible.
4)sound quality is fine not really great what you expect from sonic master sound , output is terrible with external speaker system , additional sound adapter is required if you want to play external speaker system.
5) 4 GB ram is alright but if you want to purchase look for the machine with 6 GB of ram .
6) the biggest drawback is how quickly the Aluminum finish body gets the finger prints as soon you hold it and its really hard to clean it , it looks dirty even after the use of one week.
7) the side keys are not really great you have to press hard to get the figures right , otherwise excellent keyboard , it would have been great if it was back light . go for 14 inch model of vivobook ..
Now it's cleaned up, it's great. A really nice machine. But you should not have to clean up a new computer.
