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.
|Warranty Terms – Parts
|Warranty Terms – Labor
|1 year limited
|(Also known as the CPU). The part of the computer that interprets and executes instructions. Think of it as the brain of the computer.
|How fast a computer processor carries out instructions. In general, faster is better, but processor speeds across brands may not be equivalent (i.e., a 3.0GHz AMD processor may not be the same speed as a 3.0GHz Intel processor).
|3-cell Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
|High-definition touch screen
|Technology used to display text and images on the screen. Computer monitors, notebook computers, mobile DVD players and other devices typically use LCD (flat-panel liquid crystal displays) screens.
|Screen Size (Measured Diagonally)
|Size of the screen, in inches, measured diagonally from corner to corner.
|2MB on die Level 3
|A small segment of memory that stores frequently used information for fast access by the processor, improving response time.
|System Memory (RAM)
|The memory a computer uses to run its operating system, applications and active data files. Greater amounts of RAM improve speed and enable more applications to run at once.
|System Memory (RAM) Expandable To
|Maximum amount of memory a computer can support (as opposed to the amount that comes preinstalled).
|Type of Memory (RAM)
|Computer Hard Drive Size
|Capacity for storing programs, photos, video, music and other electronic information. Hard drive capacities range from a few gigabytes to several hundred.
|Digital Media Reader or Slots
|Yes, digital media card reader
|Type of graphics (video) adapter (usually built into the motherboard), identified by manufacturer and model.
|Enables reception of TV programs.
|A group of digital video formats created by the Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG) to compress high-quality video into file sizes small enough to be transmitted over the Internet.
|Device that allows a computer to send and receive information over telephone or cable lines.
|Built-in 10/100/1000 Mbps Fast Ethernet LAN (RJ-45 connector)
|Ability to connect to other devices on a network using Ethernet, Wi-Fi (wireless; 802.11), Bluetooth, etc.
|Connections that deliver separate color and black-and-white video signals through a single cable. S-video connections provide better picture quality than RF and composite video connections but not as good as component video, DVI and HDMI connections.
|Slots in notebook computers that accept credit-card-size upgrade cards. Type I is used mostly for memory, Type II for modem, fax and network cards, and Type III for hard drives.
|USB 2.0 Ports
|1 USB 3.0; 2 USB 2.0
|Ports that allow high-speed (up to 480 Mbps) data transfer between compatible devices.
|IEEE 1394 FireWire Ports
|(Also known as FireWire, Apple Computer’s trademarked name for IEEE 1394.) High-speed connection that supports data transfer rates of up to 400 Mbps or 800 Mbps (depending on port version).
|Older and relatively slower interface most commonly used to connect a PC to a printer.
|Jacks for connecting video game controllers.
|Ultraportable (5.5 lbs. or less)
“up to 3 hours” battery life
|Operating System Platform
|The master software that controls hardware functions and provides a platform on top of which any software applications will run. Commonly used systems include Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and Chrome OS for computers; Android, Apple iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone for cell phones; and Android, Apple iOS and Windows for tablets.
|Operating System Bit Version
|The terms “32-bit” and “64-bit” refer to the way a computer’s processor (CPU) handles information. 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. Similarly, drivers designed for a 64-bit system will not work with a 32-bit version.
