The Asus VivoBook V551LA-DS71T 15.6" Multi-Touch Notebook Computer (Silver) features a traditional notebook computer design, but has a touchscreen for added convenience. You'll be able to use your keyboard, mouse and now your fingers as you can tap directly on tiles instead of clicking on them. The 15.6" screen also has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1366 x 768 native resolution powered by integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400.
The system is powered by a dual-core 4th generation Haswell Intel Core i7-4500U processor. It also has 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 750GB 5400 rpm hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, a Secure Digital media card reader, a 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 LAN jack, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam, and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers.
Windows 8 (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles, which provide notifications in real-time. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.
