Hands on: Asus E201 VivoBook with Windows 10S

The Asus E201 VivoBook is a shoddy method to attempt Windows 10S, if that is the thing that you need to do. Redesign it to Windows 10 Pro and it turns into a strong 11.6in journal for schools or for use in the field.



The Asus E201 is a strong 11.6-inch Windows 10S workstation with a decent multi-touch trackpad and a fair spill-safe console, however some dislike the position of the oblique punctuation line key.  

The most alluring thing about the Asus E201 VivoBook - a strong 11.6-inch Windows 10S workstation - is that you can overhaul it to Windows 10 Pro. I needed to attempt a PC running 10S to check whether I could get by without conventional Windows programs, and the appropriate response is yes, yet not for long. For genuine clients, it has an indistinguishable stumbling feeling from a Chromebook, however it's not as terrible, in light of the fact that at any rate you can run Microsoft Office. Be that as it may, as with Chromebooks, the disadvantages of Windows 10S can progress toward becoming preferences for school kids, for unpracticed clients, and maybe for some corporate purposes, if in-house applications have been produced for particular errands. 

Windows 10S is a rendition of Windows that will just run applications from the Windows Store. It pieces clients from introducing conventional applications from the web: they are a wellspring of hazard. There's nothing amiss with that on a fundamental level, yet there are two issues for commonplace Windows clients. To begin with, you can't run either the top of the line applications or the recognizable utilities that you've depended on for quite a long time. Second, the Windows Store doesn't have almost enough great quality applications. (No, this isn't news, yet following five years, there should be more.) 

In any case, it would not be right to state that Windows 10S can't run customary Win32 programs. It can. There are a lot of them incorporated with Windows 10S. 

In the wake of experiencing the 10S's delightful voice-based set-up, I was promptly profitable with the Asus E201 in light of the fact that regardless it incorporates Notepad and Wordpad. These matured projects were not on the Windows 10S Start menu and there were no tiles for them, however regardless they ran flawlessly well. What's more, in light of the fact that the new Settings application doesn't offer every one of the controls you may need, the old Control Panel program and different utilities still keep running also. Once more, these are work area programs composed for the old Win32 API, not the new Windows Runtime presented for applications in Windows 8. 

There should come a day when each window utility is accessible in application shape. This will empower Microsoft to strip out the entire Win32 subsystem, abandoning a littler, speedier, more secure, touch-mindful rendition of Windows for schoolchildren and general shoppers. I may wager on it happening some time this century, however it doesn't take a gander right now. Best, at that point, to consider Windows 10S as a locating shot or an organizing post for that magnificent future. 

Before anybody has a fit, I don't foresee Microsoft expelling Win32 from Pro and Enterprise forms of Windows. Organizations have dug in programming, and expert clients have settled in propensities. In reverse similarity of uses, information and business forms is still what keeps Microsoft in business. 

Strong equipment 

Aside from that, I appreciated utilizing the Asus E201. It is an exceptionally strong, spill-safe machine intended to take the sort of discipline that PCs endure in schools. The finished complete can rest easy and might make you more averse to drop it, however it does even now indicate fingerprints. 

While the E201 is sensibly light at 1.2kg, it's not thin at 2.25cm (0.9 inches), on the grounds that different things are more vital. These incorporate reparability - you can evacuate both the back and the console/top plate for upkeep - and a battery life of 11-12 hours with direct settings. 

The specialized particular, the console and trackpad are each of the notably better than what you find in most low-end purchaser PCs. For a begin, you get 4GB of memory and 64GB of capacity, rather than the 2GB/32GB fitted to the least expensive buyer machines. It can bolster up to 8GB/128GB. 

The touchpad feels great, and the keys have more go than you may expect in a modest PC. The key format is for the most part regular, and the two vast move keys make up for the marginally short spacebar and half-stature bolt keys. The oblique punctuation line key (\) has gone walkies, however not every person preferred it amongst Z and the Shift key. 

The sides of the E201 give two USB 3.0 ports, a SD card peruser, a HDMI port and an earphone jack, in addition to the power attachment. Sadly, there isn't a wired Ethernet port, however you could simply utilize a USB connector. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are, obviously, inherent. 

The processor is a 1.1GHz double center Intel Celeron N3350, which is generally moderate, yet it blasts to 2.4GHz. Generally speaking, execution feels much like the more natural quad-center Intel Atom x5-Z8500. The Celeron's TDP is just 6W, which assists with the battery life. A quicker quad-center Pentium N4200 variant is accessible, in the event that you can discover one. 

Asus E201 



The 1366 x 768-pixel hostile to glare screen isn't the most great part. Hues showed up to some degree level, particularly on my 50 percent brilliance setting. You need to focus on screen points to receive the best in return. Nonetheless, it's flawlessly serviceable, and I've seen more awful screens on £199/$199 PCs... despite the fact that I've likewise observed some better ones, as well. 

The Asus E201 is a clamshell outline, in the convention of the best netbooks of old. The screen isn't touch-delicate, and it just lies level (turning through 180 degrees) rather than collapsing behind the console. Along these lines, it doesn't do double obligation as a tablet. I don't know how essential that is for schools, but rather it's most likely not a downside for organizations who may esteem the machine's harder development for work in the field. 

The Asus E201NA-GJ008T-OSS is right now offering for £269.98 (inc VAT) at different spots. That is great incentive for a 4GB/64GB workstation since it incorporates a three-year guarantee. In the UK, Asus offers it coordinate for £292.99.
