ASUS VivoBook S400 Looking Popular, Now in Database

Posted on 01 November 2012 by

We’ve just added the ASUS VivoBook S400 to the database (The 84th Ultrabook) and I note that it’s already quite the popular product. At around $700 for a touchscreen 14.1”-er, it’s not too surprising although for that price you’re not getting best-of-specs!

ASUS Vivobook S400CA

1366×768 resolution is almost a budget laptop specification and the hybrid hard drive won’t be as fast as an SSD. The weight is not exactly class-leading either but you do get a free RAM slot inside. We’re still trying to track down information on the battery capacity for you.

Given the current spec list and ASUS’ reputation this could be a really great entry point into some Touch Windows 8 productivity and fun.

The S400 is currently available from some retailers in the USA and it’s currently the #2 best selling Ultrabook at Amazon.com. As for the European market, where it is simply known as the S400CA, it looks like it’s not available yet.

We’ll keep an eye out for the first reviews and we’ve got a request out with ASUS for a review unit. Keep your eyes peeled to the ASUS Vivobook S400 information page for more information as we get it.

Keep a lookout for another wave of Windows 8 Ultrabooks that we’ve got scheduled to be put in the database over the next few days.

    Battery life, battery life, battery life!

    Any rough estimate on battery life?

    The rest of the specs look fine.

      The Vivobook S400 has a 44WHr battery so that should give you an estimate on the battery life.

        Thanks David. I found a 48wh figure too. Do you have a good source for 44?

        I have no reason to believe the s400 will have anything bigger at this price.

        Given 44wh, its around 4.5-5.5hrs wifi working time based on Ultrabook averages.

    Thanks guys!

    Is there any way for me to filter the Ultrabook DB for only machines with 7+ hours of battery life?

      I wasn’t aware that the Wh figure was missing from the sort page.

      I’ve added it back in to allow you to sort on that column. Anything around or above 60Wh is what you need to be looking at. Select and compare for more information and sorting options.

    This one is currently the best-selling ultrabook at Amazon.com. Poor specs, though… 1366×768 resolution and an HD instead of SSD…
