We have the new N7400 Vivobook Pro with us for a few days from our good friends at Asus. The machine was launched a couple of months ago and we have been eager to get get our hands on it. Finally, good things come to those who wait. So, as usual, great quality out of the box, immediately you are greeted with a fine silver surface that is smooth to the touch, and no fingerprints after I’ve touched it and flipped it over and been checking around for the USB ports and SD card slots and taking notes, I’m honestly impressed already. I can work with this.

After launching and setting it up, I’m met by the Asus DialPad, no it’s not for making calls, it’s a navigation shortcut built right into the touch pad, it can be customised and works with 3rd party creative applications. Very neat
Also for those concerned over hackers spying on them using the webcam, there is an integrated privacy shield that slides over the webcam to stop it being used. So you can stop taping it up and removing it and messing up the look of your panel. Very useful and much appreciated.
