ASUS Vivobook S400 Ultrabook Offers Touch, Ivy Bridge for $699

Posted on 22 October 2012 by

We picked up on the almost-Ultrabook ASUS Vivobook S200 a few days ago. The ASUS Vivobook S400 (S400CA-DH51T) has now appeared in Amazon.com for a surprisingly cheap $699. This is a full Ivy Bridge Core i5 Ultrabook with touchscreen making it the cheapest touchscreen Ultrabook to date.

The specs include:

  • Windows 8
  • Core i5 3317U CPU 1.7Ghz
  • 4GB RAM
  • 500GB hybrid hard drive (24GB SSD)
  • 14.1” touchscreen 1366×768
  • 2xUSB2.0, 1xUSB3.0
  • 4.4lbs (1.995KG)

It’s clear to see that this is no Zenbook. At 2KG and with a 5400RPM hard drive it’s being build to a price rather than a specification but it’s great to see a device setting such a low price point so early in the game. Unfortunately there’s no indication of battery capacity at the moment. It’s currently listed at Amazon for $599 and will be available on the 26th October.

For those looking at a smaller, low cost touchscreen laptop, the 11.6” ASUS Vivobook S200 /X202E [Amazon link] will fit the bill. It’s only 1.3KG too!

Expect to hear more about the complete range of ASUS Ultrabooks and touch-enabled devices, including the Clover-Trail variants, at an event that is planned for the 23rd October.
