    Asus VivoBook X202E With Touchscreen $499

    Incredible value for a full 64 bit Windows 8 notebook with touchscreen, Core i3 Ivy Bridge, 4GB RAM, and 11.6 inch display. This package is priced in the range of a tablet but instead of a limited functionality toy for games, or some disabled Windows RT package, this is the real deal. It's small, lightweight, good for work or entertainment and from a quality vendor.

    See Microsoft Store.

    • At this price point, why in the world would anyone buy an Arm-based Tablet?? Intel products will dominate the $500 price point. ARM is toast.

    • Additionally, while the X202E-DH31T also has Intel's integrated HD Graphics 4000 processing, it couldn't run our Aliens vs. Predator test, and only ran Heaven at 1366-by-768 resolution and medium detail for an unplayable 4 frames per second.

      The real nail in the coffin, however, was battery life. Despite the sub-3-pound weight and ultra-low-voltage processor, the X202E-DH31T (and its 38Wh, 2-cell battery) only lasted 3 hours 50 minutes in our video rundown test.

      • Intel HD Graphics 4000 renders popular video material at the popular 1080p and 720p resolutions very well. Good gaming performance requires capabilities in a graphics subsystem not necessary for general purpose use and PC buyers don't want to pay for features they'll never use.

        Any serious gamer today will buy dedicated graphics. Although Intel is pushing graphics improvements so quickly that even dedicated graphics will soon become unnecessary except for the most demanding gaming or video editing applications.
