Product Description

ASUS VivoBook V451 – The Touchscreen that Responds to You

Featuring an intuitive 14” HD touchscreen that’s 150% more responsive than industry standards, the ASUS VivoBook is the ultimate mix of performance and style. The 1” body is slim – even with an optical drive – and the brushed metal finish provides a durable, fingerprint-resistant design that’s unique. The VivoBook fits comfortably in your hand so you can maximize your computing experience while on the go.

Features At-A-Glance:
  • 4th generation Intel Core i5-4200U processor delivers superior power efficiency and performance needed for all your daily tasks
  • Intuitive 14” HD (1366*768) touchscreen built for an incredible Windows 8 experience
  • Premium brushed metallic texture with a Chiclet keyboard offering high durability and an elegant look
  • Ultra-slim, highly portable 1” design, while featuring an optical drive and large speakers
  • Instant On: ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II delivers a 2-second wake up from hibernate mode and worry-free auto data back up when battery level falls below 5%

Comfort and Style – On the Go

The sleek design features a slim but durable body that’s been treated with a brushed metallic surface. Even with an optical drive, the VivoBook is an ultra-thin 1”. So it can slip easily into your backpack, briefcase or tote bag. The rounded edges are inspired by book binding, making for a comfortable in-hand feel. So you can carry it on the go. And the inside is just as beautiful. The keyboard blends seamlessly into the body for a solid feel and a layout that prevents dust and debris. With its ergonomically designed Chicklet keyboard, you’ll be comfortable and typo-free even after long stints in front of the computer.

The World at Your Fingertips

The VivoBook features an all-new glass panel for a smoother and more accurate response to your finger. With high-sensitivity actuators, you can select what you want every time without delay as the touchscreen boasts a response time that’s 150% faster than industry standards. Swipe through panels, select apps from the Windows Store, write with clarity and draw with ease — all by the touch of your fingers. You’ll never need a mouse again.

Power That Lets You Do More - Longer

Use the VivoBook instantly, anytime you want it. Powered by a 4th Gen Intel Core processor, the VivoBook is faster than ever. So you can open several apps, multiple web browsers and not worry about lag. On top of that, ASUS’s Super Hybrid Engine II technology wakes the computer from sleep mode in 2 seconds and provides up to 14 days of standby time. Also, don’t worry about losing data; the VivoBook automatically backs up everything when the battery life falls below 5%.

A Better View of the World

Featuring Splendid technology, the VivoBook fine-tunes images to whatever you’re doing. Whether you’re watching a movie or looking through a photo album, it will adjust the picture’s color balance, accuracy, and sharpness. So your images will pop with crystal-clear clarity and vibrant colors.

Bringing Sound to Life with ASUS SonicMaster

ASUS’s team of sound experts has engineered SonicMaster technology for the best possible audio from build-in speakers. Featuring large-diameter sound chambers — all within the thin frame — the VivoBook allows sound waves to fully expand outward. This results in true-to-life sound with reduced distortion. Bass is deeper and richer, while delivering a smoother audio that’s easy on your ears. With AudioWizard, the VivoBook offers five modes that fine-tune your listening experience — whether you’re streaming an album, watching your favorite movie, or playing the latest video game. Now you can hear every note and make out every word, all in high-fidelity surround sound.

Your Own Cloud: Access Anywhere, Any Time

Every VivoBook comes with 3GB of ASUS WebStorage. Store and share anything you want — photos, music, movies, documents — and access it instantly. With the MyBitCast App, you can update and sync your data with all your devices. Now your content can be accessed through your phone, tablet, notebook, or desktop. No more clunky external hard drives. If something happens to your computer, your data will be resting safely in the cloud.

Customer Reviews

Very light and quiet.
It probably has some drawbacks to someone needing serious processing (no SSD), but for a lot of users, this one is good.
The keyboard makes me crazy, its very difficult to type on.

This ultrabook is pretty nice for a Haswell ultrabook, but I think I'd definitely try to get it on sale As far as looks, it has a beautiful dark gray brushed aluminum look to it, but unfortunately the cover is a major fingerprint magnet. This could really bother some people. It's a small thing, but I wished they would hae made the cover a lighter silver, since the light colors tend to show fingerprints less.

The Pros: Haswell architecture - graphics on this laptop are beautiful
Long battery life - I am getting about 5-6 hrs battery life which is really good, I have a sony and two other Asus ultrabooks that can only get 4-5 hrs battery life, so this is a major deal for this laptop.
Screen - the screen on this is beautiful - slightly better than my Sony Vaio t series ultrabook, and compared to the Asus s400ca rsi5t18, this one has a much better looking screen.
Another pro, is the charger - it's only one cord vs the traditional two piece power cords and it has the brick part at the plug with fold out prongs - i really think they should all be this way, it's just much simpler and convenient.
Also a pro - the bloatware on this is not too bad, didn't really have to uninstall a bunch of programs I didn't want - that's one of the things I like most about Asus laptops.
Another pro - this laptop runs incredibly cool and quiet - I never hear the fans or any other mechanical noise from this ultrabook, and it never seems to get even mildly hot.

The So-So - This unfortunately doesn't have the caching SSD that my vaio t series and the s400ca has. This is a huge disappointment, and at this price point, I really feel it should have one. Without the caching SSD to speed things up, you just don't get the full ultrabook experience.

The Asus has a sleek look with its silver brushed metal lid and slightly rounded sides. Between this and it being JUST under 5 lbs, it makes for an easy transport if you want a laptop to carry around.

I noticed immediately the ultra-fast sleep mode. As soon as the lid is closed the laptop goes into immediate hibernation. After opening lid and clicking to un-hibernate, the laptop is back to active within 2-3 seconds.

The touchscreen has a sleek design with a black outline around the active screen that frames the look of the screen nicely. If you put pressure on the top of the laptop lid it does not affect the screen at all which tells of the durability of the laptop casing. The touchscreen has very nice vibrant display graphics that allows it to be seen easily from various angles without too much glare.

The visuals of the screen are great, which make for impressive video viewing. Picture is great and graphics are very crisp whether it is a Powerpoint still picture on display or a movie. The audio is great, too. While not a gaming pc, this is a nice one for video/audio usage.

It is a very thin and elegant design. The DVD multi recorder fits nicely along the side panels along with three USB ports, a microphone jack, SD slot, network slot and HDMI port.

The grooved out design around the touch pad is a small detail that has a nice impact on the overall look of the keyboard and touchpad (the touchpad is a bit of a different design with the 'clicks', but honestly, at this point with various keyboards for various devices, I'm used to things being different and just roll with it. But FYI to buyer). Keyboard is nicely laid out with light/'chiclet' touch keys and touchpad is sensitive without being too touchy.

I'm currently a MacBook Air owner, so I'll compare this Asus Laptop to my 2013 i7 Macbook Air.
Price wise, the Air costs 2x the Asus.
Weight: The Air is significantly lighter (the Asus weighs almost 2x the Air).
Speed: The Air has SSD and i7 so it's a lot faster than the Asus.
Screen resolution: pretty much the same.
The Asus has DVD drive (which is a welcome feature but hardly anyone may need it)
The Asus has a touchscreen which is nice.
Battery on the Air lasts about 12 hrs while the Asus only lasts about 4.5 hrs.
Overall, it's a clear winner for the Air but keep in mind it cost more than 2x the Asus

My sister also owns a similar HP ultra book, so I'll make some comparison too.
Price wise, they're the same. She paid about $650 last year for her HP ultra book
Configuration wise, they're similar (except the Asus uses a newer CPU)
Battery life: the HP ultra book lasts about 1 hr longer than the Asus
The HP doesn't have touchscreen
Built Quality: they both have metal lid and some metal parts but the HP has nicer bottom.
The HP doesn't have DVD drive.
They weigh almost the same.
In conclusion, for the money, this is pretty much what you'll get. Not a great deal, but not bad either.
If you're not in a rush for a laptop, I suggest you to wait a bit more. If the price drops down to about
$500 or less, this will be a solid deal. At this price, it's okay, but there's nothing to be very excited about.

Verified Purchase
I like this 14" VivoBook due to the ease of operation. It is understandable that learning a new task such as how to best utilize a touchscreen can be time consuming. However, all the ease of the touch screen becomes elementary when used on a regular basis. I installed Open Office as I did not want to spend another dollar on Microsoft Business. It works excellently with all components of this Asus. This Asus replaced an Asus 13 1/2" that due to grandkids pushing on the cover/screen it separated at the base. It is still usable without any difficulty but I cannot close the cover....it has now become my desktop. I love that this one has an optical drive as I burn disks with photos and download specific music to disk to play elsewhere. The RAM was sufficient and I can add more. There is even instructions as a "how to"...I would have someone install for me if necessary.
I have not transferred my PhotoShop as yet, but I will need to do that as the photo editing is not as efficient and detailed as I like to use. The screen is clear and crisp. This Asus is as compact, lightweight and easy to use as I expected from Asus. In ordering from Amazon it arrived early and in tact ready to download all aspects for my use.
