I'm getting a new laptop soon and I wanted to order an Asus Vivobook. It's only 270 dollars and it's nice and light which is cool cus I need it for school and I would hate to lug around something huge. It comes with touchscreen but I don't think I'll ever use that so yeah. But I've never used an Asus before? Is it a good brand? Keep in mind I won't use this laptop for much besides school, internet, and maybe listening to music and holding a few pictures. Won't be doing any gaming on it.

If they make their laptops anyway like they do their tablets, then you will be fine. I have been extremely satisfied with the Asus TF300.

Yeah dude, the Amazon and Newegg reviews don't look bad, either. I'd go for it for $270. ;D

ASUS is by far the biggest bang for you book in terms of Laptops.

Great specs, great warranty, and great overall build and quality.

 

I've owned several ASUS laptops and each have been very promising.  I currently have an ASUS UX32VD that I got brand new factory sealed for only $750.  It's super portable and has awesome specs for its size.

Of course. Look for brands that are specialized in making laptops - Acer, Asus, HP, Dell.

I used to sell anywhere between 150-200 laptops a year. I carried Asus, Acer, HP, Toshiba which are all pretty known brands.

 

putting price aside, the ones that could take the most beatings are Toshibas, followed by Asus, then HP and finally Acer.

 

Now my favorite brand out of all was Asus laptops because of their solid building materials, light weight, and good performance. All while keeping a sleek look.
