ASUS has introduced the VivoBook X202, a notebook with an 11.6" touchscreen. The system is powered by an efficient Core i3-3217U processor, clocked at 1.8 GHz and with matching Intel HD Graphics 4000 chip. The screen has a 1366x768 pixel resolution.
To make its creation more affordable, ASUS has opted for a 500 GB hard disk, instead of an SSD. The device does feature 4 GB of DDR3 memory, as well as WiFi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. A 0.3 megapixel webcam is integrated into the screen, while USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0 are available on the side of the laptop. Furthermore, a memory card reader and an HDMI output are also present. Its 2-cell battery should last the VivoBook X202 up to five hours.
The launch of ASUS' VivBook X202 will coincide with that of Windows 8, namely October 26th. The system has a recommended price of $600 (£375).
