Asus unveils touch-powered Vivobook X202E

Asus today announced a new line of touch-powered laptops called Vivobook. The 11-inch model is called the Vivobook X202E and will be available in two configurations.

We’ve already seen this model a couple of weeks ago but was not allowed to take pictures, blog or even mention it. Asus was very secret with this model since it looks like this is their way of reviving the plateauing sales of netbooks worldwide.

In the Philippines, the X202E will come with an Intel Core i3 or an Intel Celeron processor.

Asus Vivobook X202E specs:
11.6″ LED display @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Core i3 3217U Ivy Bridge 1.8GHz
Intel HD 4000 Graphics
4GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2 x USB 2.0 ports
1 x USB 3.0 ports
30.3cm x 20.0cm x 21.7mm
2.9lbs
Li-Polymer battery
Windows 8
Php26,995 (suggested retail price)

The X202E has a pretty solid design which reminds us of the brushed metal construction of the Zenbook. They’re also pretty light at under 3lbs. Oh, and did we say it has touchscreen?

    I think one of the shops to release it would be PC Express. They’ll even have the Nexus soon in their shops.
