4.0 out of 5 stars A solid ultraportable machine Jan. 17 2013
By Andrew
Firstly, some reviewers have referred to this laptop as a netbook. I have nothing against netbooks, but this is actually an ultraportable notebook. In fact, if it had even a hybrid SSD it would meet ultrabook specs. It certainly has the build quality of an ultrabook.

The good:
- As I said, excellent build quality including the very responsive touchscreen. People have been guessing that I must have paid at least $800 for this machine based on its look and feel alone. It looks and feels like something between a Macbook Air and Pro.
- Remarkably thin considering that it has built in VGA and ethernet ports, and yes, some people still need those!
- It's fast. Obviously with a Core i3 and 4GB of RAM it's not the most powerful device on the market, but if you're not a gamer or into heavy multimedia editing it runs like a breeze. It boots up faster than ANY computer I have ever seen not equipped with an SSD. I guess Windows 8 is to thank for that.
- Speaking of Windows 8, this is a review of the machine not the OS, but I'll just say that it's basically Windows 7 with a better start menu and some handy touched based functionality. On a touchscreen device like this one, I don't see any reason to complain about it.
- Incredibly compact power cable. No brick. It's like a tablet charger. You can literally coil it up and carry it in your pocket.

The Bad:
- Battery life is indeed about 4-5 hours max... that is, with careful power management and light use. Not stellar, but I guess it does deliver the "up to 5 hours" promised.
- A little heavy for its size, certainly not so much to be tiring to carry.
- Some reviewers have complained about the trackpad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good product Feb. 11 2013
By Eddyt90
Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a laptop for school, this one is the way to go.
+ It's thin, light, very portable.
- However, the battery life is not great.
+ Everything else seems to be good. Touchscreen is responsive.
+ Charger is compact.

If you want a laptop as well as receiving the full experience of Windows 8, this product does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only it didn't have Windows 8! July 31 2013

This is a nice size laptop. I love the touchscreen, but I hate Windows 8. Windows 8 is not intuitive at all. An inexperienced user would be completely lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars works fine, a good deal for the price Aug. 10 2013

I like my purchase so far, the review on amazon.com was right though, the track pad does need a fix, I had the problem that every time the laptop goes to sleep, the touch pad stop working when it wakes up. I had to reinstall driver from the asus website. but overall I'm pretty happy with my purchase

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting from Asus July 26 2013
I first got a Asus S400CA with the exact same specs but a 14 inch screen for the same price, but I had to return it the first day cause the keyboard has so much flex that typing was almost impossible.

The X202e has a great keyboard and the touchpad is not bad for a budget notebook. The speed is OK, not close to a i5, but still much better than my Asus Vivotab with celeron running windows 8.

However, I will return this notebook this week because it is useless to me, the problem is that when you run it trough a external monitor and that you close the lid, the processor is running at 80 degree when iddling and after 1-2 minutes of 1080p youtube playback, it reach the 105 degree limit and the laptop shut down.

When used with the screen open, it is running at 68 degree when iddling and can reach 85 degree when working hard, it's very hot and will reduce the life of the processor for sure, don't expect this notebook to last more than a year if you let it running 24/7.

Very disapointed with my last 2 Asus laptop, their quality is not what it used to be.

UPDATED AUGUST 26

I sent the x202e to repair 3 weeks ago due to the high temp. I was surprised to received the laptop back 12 days later, that was very fast. Only problem ; they did not fix anything. No paper in the box explaining any repair they would have made and when I open the laptop, the temps was still 85 degree at idle and the laptop reboot by itself when playing 1080p video.

It cost me 60$ to send the the laptop and now I will have to pay another 60$ to have it repair again. that's 120$ total for a very bad laptop that was already expansive. And I don't know if they will repair it for good this time, I will never buy ASUS again, this is the worst thing I ever purchased in my life.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok March 18 2014

Very portable - conveniently sized. Slower than I would have expected or liked. Within 6 months, the power adapter developed a problem and I have since learned that this is not uncommon for these laptops.
