Today we are going to take a look at the Asus VivoBook L402NA-GA042TS which is a compact affordable laptop model that actually has a decent sized display. Many of the budget models we have been seeing lately come with 11.6 inch displays which for many is just to small for getting some real work done, that is where this Asus can step in with its much larger 14.1 inch display and it still has that budget friendly price that many consumers are looking for. Below we are going to review some of the benefits and downsides to this new model and see if it might be the right option for you.
Processor: Intel Celeron
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 32 GB eMMC
Screen: 14.1 Inches
OS: Windows 10
As we mentioned above the Asus VivoBook L402NA-GA042TS is great for those who need to take their technology on the go with them. It weighs a very light 1.6 KG which is up to a full KG lighter than many of the full sized laptops currently available. With this light design carrying it around for extended periods of time is quite easy. A lightweight isn’t the only mobile friendly feature this laptop has as it can also give you some great battery life with up to 11 hours on a single charge.
Some of the nice to have features that you will find here that you will not find on all models is a 1 year subscription to Office 365 plus a full TB of online storage. For those that require these features it is a great way to get them at no additional charge when you buy your laptop.
The 14.1 inch display is a great balance between portability and functionality. It is only slightly smaller than a typical full sized display but small enough to make a real difference when it comes time to carry around your device.
Just like most budget models storage space is a concern on the Asus VivoBook L402NA-GA042TS as well since it only offers 32 GB of total space. They have tried to minimize the impact on consumers by offering 1 TB of online storage with the purchase of the device but for many that just isn’t the same as being able to store large quantities of data on a local drive.
The Asus VivoBook L402NA-GA042TS shares a lot of the same characteristics that you will find in similar priced budget models but also has a few things that help set it apart. These features include a larger 14.1 inch display, 1 year subscription to Office 365 and 1 TB web storage. Some of these extras might seem small but will probably be enough of an edge over its direct competition to sway many potential consumers.
