This laptop comes with a
full-sized, non-backlit keyboard with a touchpad that doesn’t have a
fingerprint sensor tucked in to the top-right corner, something you find
on high-end Asus laptops, especially the ZenBook line. Still, the
keyboard’s white keys feel comfortable for basic but if you’re a
pro-typer, you might have to look elsewhere in case you want the best
typing experience ever.
Below the keyboard is a
touchpad that responds well to clicks and swipes, but still offers a
frustrating touchpad experience. The issues come from an oversensitive
touch recognition, that that randomly replaces standard click when
attempting to select an item with the option menu. That’s an issue we’ve
had on the Asus VivoBook Pro 15 as well.
In other words, if you
pick up a VivoBook or Cloudbook, it’s fine to buy a mouse, too
As with many of Intel’s
mobile processors, you can’t really set performance expectations too
high for the Cloudbook E406SA-BV242TS.
Powered by 4GB of memory,
a 1.1GHz intel Pentium N3000, and with 64GB of eMMC storage, this laptop
stacks up well on paper and in performance with the Acer Swift 1. It’s
clear from daily use and tests that this laptop isn’t going to cruise
through video or photo edits, but it will do a good job for those who
stick to browsing the web or in word processing.
Once again. Like other
computers with eMMC storage, this Cloudbook is slow to copy files,
requiring 2 minutes and 47 seconds to duplicate 4.98GB multimedia files,
at a rate of 30.2 MBPs. That’s at par with a range of its competitors
that average 27.98 t0 32.4 MBps, though equipped with 500GB, 5,400-rpm
Depending on where you
look at specifications for the ASUS Cloudbook E406SA, you’ll either read
it as 14 or 12-hour battery life. Either number is a gimmick and one you
can’t achieve during use.
Indeed, battery tests
return 10 hours 19 minutes on the PCMark 8, and 6 hours and 33 minutes
in movie playback test. Neither result is something to shake your head
at, as it’s more than enough to power through a cross-country flight or
a day full of meetings or lectures.
