Engadget Summary

TheVivoBook X202 is one of the least expensive Windows 8 touchscreen laptops currently available, and the compromises made to keep its price down show in its performance, battery life, and overall build quality. PC Mag says the X202 offers "mediocre performance," but is "cheap and usable, if not as portable and powerful as leading systems." Liliputing says that it's a "pretty decent laptop" for its price, though "the touchscreen wobbles, the touchpad isn’t quite as reliable as it could be, and the notebook doesn’t exactly offer all-day battery life." Liliputing's advice: If you "don't go expecting too much," it could be worth considering.
