Asus's First Laptop With Windows 10 S Launched For $279
After the launch of Microsoft Surface Laptop with Windows 10 S in June, the software giant said that many OEMs will soon unveil affordable Windows 10 S laptops. In the same line, Asus has now launched the VivoBook W202, which is the company's first Windows 10 S laptop.
Although the device is a mid-range laptop and low specs are expected, the VivoBook W202 looks to be a well-built laptop with rubber-lined edges and corners and an ergonomic and spill-resistant keyboard. The VivoBook W202 comes with a 180-degree hinge, and the company says that it's three-piece modular design, onmsft reported.
The Asus VivoBook W202's specs are pretty basic and are designed for students and teachers. The laptop has a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron N3350 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 0.3-megapixel webcam. The VivoBook W202 comes with an 11.6-inch screen which has 1366 x 768 of resolution, as reported by The Verge.
In the Asus VivoBook W202, there are a ton of ports. There is an HDMI port, an SD card slot, a headphone jack, two USB 3.0 ports, and support for a lock. Asus estimates 11 hours of battery life for this first Windows 10 S supporting a laptop.
The laptop is made with a rugged design and is supposed to be able to survive twists, crushing, and drops. Asus VivoBook W202 also has a water-resistant keyboard. The big highlight of the laptop is, it runs Windows 10 S, rather than full Windows 10, which ostensibly makes the machine a little bit cheaper than it otherwise would be.
From its specs and build, the Asus VivoBook W202 sounds rightly positioned in competition with the Chromebooks with the low price point of $279 no less. Asus is also said to launch a Windows 10 Home version of the VivoBook W202 next month, which will be priced at $299. As per the Microsoft's website, a Windows 10 S version of the convertible VivoBook Flip TP203 is also coming soon.
