Bottom Line

Overall the ASUS VivoBook E403SA-US21 is a great performing budget laptop that offers a sleek design, a solid state drive and a Full-HD display.

The ASUS VivoBook E403SA-US21 is a bestselling 14-inch laptop that has been praised for its sleek design, its solid state drive and its solid performance. The sleek brushed aluminum lid and imitation metal keyboard deck offer a high-end look and feel. While many laptops in the same category only feature 1366×768 display panels, the VivoBook E403SA-US21 comes with a Full-HD display with a maximum resolution of 1920×1080. Though the sRGB spectrum coverage is lower than higher-end Full-HD panels and the maximum brightness levels are also lower than the category average. While the solid state drive offers fast boot and app loading times, the limited 128GB of storage is a bit limited for users who want to store media and photos.
