Stylish and sleek ASUS VivoBook V451LA-DS51T is a silver aluminium finish 14 inch notebook with a very intuitive high definition touchscreen. It delivers speed and power with its 4th generation i5 processor as well as style and durability. Also being packed with practical features you're going to enjoy while working on your tasks every day.

ASUS VivoBook features a Haswell Intel Core i5-4200U processor at 1.6 GHz with both the energy efficiency and great performance, a 6 GB DDR3L SDRAM memory to enable you to work on a few browser tabs and applications at once, a 500 GB Serial ATA at 5400 rpm hard drive, which is standard / adequate amount of storage for your common files, songs and videos. You also get 3GB of cloud based WebStorage to access your files anywhere on any device. The operating system is the Windows 8 with its easy to customize tiles and best if you update it to Windows 8.1 on Microsoft store for free to get those additional user friendly functions.

14 inch high definition display at 1366x768 maximum pixel resolution and 16:9 cinematic aspect ratio is a touchscreen that is 150% more intuitive and responsive than the industry benchmark- it works perfectly with the Windows 8 and 8.1. Asus Splendid technology makes sure the image quality on your videos and photos are fine-tuned in terms of contrast, the balance of colors and clarity. You will only get very clear picture with vivid colors, seen equally well from different angles. Although not a full-on gaming laptop, this is a great piece of art when it comes to video and sound.

Audio quality is superior on the Asus Vivobook- deep bass, smooth, realistic and rich sound, thanks to the Asus SonicMaster and the integrated stereo speakers with big surround sound chambers that let the sound waves expand in the room. You also have the AudioWizard with 5 settings to adjust sound to whatever you're doing- listening to music, watching movies or playing games.

MyBitCast App allows you to update and sync data with your tablet, smart phone, other desktop or laptop. Super Hybrid Engine II concept makes sure the ASUS VivoBook can stay on standby for up to two weeks. It goes into the sleep mode as soon as you shut the lid and thanks to the 'Instant On' function it starts from hibernation in a couple of seconds. You won't have to worry about losing your data when it runs out of battery as they will be saved automatically when the battery level goes below 5%.

Pretty dark grey brushed metal Asus Vivobook is only 1 inch thick and weighs just under 5 pounds, despite having an optical drive, so it is very portable and can fit in your bag easily when you're heading out. You should be able to get around 5 to 6 hours of battery life from its lithium ion battery unless you're working on intensive programs or streaming videos. It has a comfortable chiclet style keyboard with light touch keys and a responsive touchpad at the front- also optimized to the best Windows 8 experience. It works very quietly and stays cool no matter how many hours you've been using it.
