    ASUS plans to expand its VivoBook series with a new AMD-powered member, the X102BA. This 10.2-inch ultra-portable should bring Windows 8 experience to the masses, with its cost-effective innards, including an AMD A4-1200 dual-core APU with Radeon HD 8180 graphics, 2 GB of RAM, and 320 GB of HDD storage. Its software bundle includes not just Windows 8, but also Office Home and Student 2013. ASUS reportedly plans to price the X102BA at 330 Euros, when the notebook hits stores some time next month.

    It's sub 4w so it runs passive instead of needing a fan. Seems great for taking notes during school.

    Ventilation holes does not necessarily indicate fans.

    most passive cooling laptops NEED ventilation holes as that's how it cools... with natural airflow
