The Asus vivobook X200CA-SCL0301Q comes with a 11,6″ multi touch screen , a big plus for a notebook running windows 8. The double core Intel Celeron 1007U processor scores an “ok” 1443 cpu mark, which should satisfy the need of those who just want a small light weight notebook to complete non resource hungry tasks.

Overall, this small budget notebook gives so much value for its price: 4gb of ram, a generous 500gb hard drive, USB3.0, an HD 1366×768 touchscreen, a built-in 1M pixel webcam, while weighting only 3lbs and being just 1,2″ thin. The 3 cell battery should give around 4-5 hours max of use before you’ll need to plug in the charger.

A 64-bit operating system handles large amounts of system memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system.Most software programs designed for a 32-bit operating system will work on the 64-bit version, with the exception of many antivirus programs. However, if a program is designed for a 64-bit operating system, it is not backwards-compatible with a 32-bit version.Device drivers designed for a 32-bit system will not work on computers running a 64-bit operating system.
