my view on the Asus X202E
on 1 June 2016
I bought this small laptop as a replacement for my older one. I was happy with it at first but then as i got to know the laptop, i wished i had got a different make altogether. Things i don't like are:
1. the text on the screen changed size many times when you don't want to adjust it. The touch pad is very sensitive and it adjusts the text size when it thinks you want to. Normally it's done by swiping your fingers apart/together. Major irritation.
2. a column of technical data opens on the right side of the screen when it shouldn't. No idea why. It displays numbers and other stuff. Another major irritation. It opens when typing.
3. the arrow cursor 'drags' slowly around the screen at times. Very laggy. Unsure why?
4. Screen size is a little too small for my liking. I prefer 13 inch. Like my old laptop. With the text set at 100% size eye strain happens quickly. So then a readjust is needed. I use the Google settings, not the finger swipe for this.
No doubt there will be other issues with the Asus laptop. I'll update as/when.
Good points. None. Only joking... The memory is adequate for the size but i don't use it for storing photo, music or gaming. If i did, i'd get a higher spec system, mybe 6 or 8gig or above. The touch screen is ok but i like keys so don't use it much. This computer is ok for beginners, net surfers or beginners or maybe kids. For serious users, a bigger system is needed. Both size and spec.
All in all a below average computer. I'll be upgrading very soon. Hope this review helps. Remember, this is my view/experience and not a general review.
