    ASUS V500CA Reviews

    VivoBook V500CA-DB51 Multi-Touch 15.6- Laptop Computer (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Package with no fuss This laptop is niced packaged with just the notebook and power adapter. The power adapter reminds me the one with macbook pro. Good touch screen and updated processor makes it an ideal notebook for surfing and Youtubing. Although it lacks the 24G SSD it is still quick snappy for casual surfing from an IT pro perspective. With 64-bit Windows 8 it feels quite at home although there are some quirks it takes some time to get used to compared to my good old Windows 7 pro. Since this is considered a ultrabook (15 :-)) the battery is built in. This may be an issue when it's time to replace it. No sure it will be something easy to find a replacement...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent everyday machine This is a great machine for everyday use. It's weakest point is the graphics engine but it is a great value for the price. It's very light and thin. It has a big bright screen. The camera and speakers are adequate. The mic is touchy. When I don't use my headset, I get complaints. I love the USB3, HDMI, and VGA ports. It does NOT have a changeable battery. I believe there is an MSATA connector inside but I have not used it yet. The keyboard does not have a backlight. The metal finish looks and feels really nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best buy I could find. The computer is a great deal for everything that you get. I picked it because I had a chance to use my nephews and I seen how well it is built. It is a nice laptop and runs great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I am still working on learning Windows 8. Otherwise it is built great and the touchscreen is awesome.
