    Bakit Core i5 at may Radeon graphics yung nasa picture? Nakaka-confuse naman yan, for sure plastic body nito.

    Too late nakabili na ako ng X401A ng ASUS, slimbook din siya.

    Is that 21,995 with OS?

      I’d go for the Lenovo. There is another model supposedly coming out, the S405 which has AMD A-series processors which should be a lot cheaper than the S400 with Intel.

    To Daniel,

    For school, choose something with longer battery life. You won’t be able to plug-in in a classroom or the library most of the time.

    My bet is on the Lenovo unit. Lenovo has apps which can manage power better than standard Windows. I am not sure if Asus has this.

      @Jojo
      Asus has a Power Management utility and it’s called “Power4Gear”. It’s definitely one of the best power management software I’ve ever seen because the utility itself lets you to control everything else you need in making a customized energy plan.
