    "If you're looking for a high power notebook that comes at an affordable price, the ASUS VivoBook may be just the thing that you're looking for. Design-wise, it is very appealing in that it is very light, sleek, and clean looking. The graphics and the screen quality definitely leave something to be desired though, and I sometimes find that the track pad isn't as responsive as it should be. Still, all in all, for function you really can't beat the price. It is a powerful device, and luckily so far I have not experienced any kind of technical issues with my computer. "

    "I'm a developer who travels a lot and as such sometimes has to treat my computers as disposable. The EEEpc line works well for me, they are dirt cheap but work great for what they are. I've definitely gone through a few and never thought twice about buying another one."
