For those put off by TAICHI 21's second display and its price tag ASUS has introduced a simpler, but still touch-enabled, and Windows 8-loaded, laptop, the VivoBook X202. Priced at $599, the X202 is 0.9-inch thick, it runs Windows 8 Home Premium, and features an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) LED-backlit touchscreen, a 1.8 GHz Core i3-3217U processor, 4 GB of RAM, Intel GMA HD graphics, a 500 GB hard drive, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 0.3 megapixel camera, a 3-in-1 card reader, one USB 3.0 port, an HDMI output, and a 2-cell battery (battery life is up to 5 hours).

I would have liked to see a bigger battery like a 6-cell that way you can get many hours, just make it in the shape of a stand like Dell did. Because who cares about the little bit of extra weight and making it slightly bulky it needs some mass.

Yep, that and a larger screen. 11.6" isn't much bigger than a dang tablet. At $600 it seems quite over priced to me. I would have thought about $400 would be more correct.

Just me though.

That's it, exactly, who cares for a wedgie notebook, why not have it the same thickness front and back, and cram a bit more goodies under the hood !!! It would still be extremely portable, intel gma may suck a bit too.

599.99$USD for a i3 Ivy with HD4000 and 500GB HDD 4GB DDR3 .

when asus got a laptop for like 459.99$ i5 3210M with GMA 4000 and 4GB DDR3 15.6 inch to think they charge for the touch-screen price like if they said oh since it touch-screen it must cost 200$ extra and shrink it size by 4 inch Brilliant

they must be thinking oh wait that window 8 launch all those hundred of application & games that where usually only avaible on android & apple device they will all be playing Infinity Blade 2 & 3 If Micosoft get a port instead of WoW on there GMA 4000 so there like they will stop to buy portable wireless mice and play with there thumb in R.U.S.E and Starcraft 2 at Medium graphic at 26.7 FPS Frame Caps

or there just simply thinking that 600$ is the good price for the fun to have a Large laptop Tablet Like of 11.6 inch there like i3 (Better then apple) GMA 4000 (Better then Nvidia Tegra 3 of Android) battery life : R&D result Better then tablet !

Of course they did. Intel designed the chips and Apple designed the logic board, the cooling system, the case and the software.

My question was about ASUS though. Are they making the MacBook Air on Apple's behalf now? Cause I'm pretty sure they wouldn't release a complete rip-off product like that without expecting a lawsuit...

What's next? The ASUS "Game"Station 3?? or the ASUS "Z"BOX 360??? Common...:rolleyes:
