ASUS VivoBook X202E - Notebooks & Ultrabooks - ASUS. Well, it had to happen, sooner or later. My trusty ASUS notebook started having problems; and, after a few hours of tinkering, I decided that it was no longer reliable enough to be my daily productivity machine. The good news is that ASUS makes the tiny, under 3 pounds, VivoBook powerhouse. It has 4 Gigs of RAM, a 500 Gig hard drive, a 24 Gig SSD drive to handle cache, and, a touch screen that makes Windows 8 tolerable. It is like having a tablet with a keyboard, and power under the hood. I spent last night reloading all my software and data, so a complete review will have to wait. However, at $499, this budget laptop has plenty of bite for any working pro. And, at under 3 pounds, it is light as a feather.
