Hello everyone!

I have been on the look out for an inexpensive portable laptop to last me for my final school year and have come across 2 options that fell at roughly my $400 range. When looking into their specs however I seem to not be having much success in what is really different between the 2 models. I believe the x202E is a newer model, but beyond that i'm not sure.

Asus Vivobook Q200E-BSI3T08 (Price found at $390)

Asus Vivobook X202E-DH31T (Price found at $404+tax at Microsoft Store Student)

Those are the 2 I am picking from after a few hours of searching and comparing but if there are possible inexpensive recommendations that fall around $400 or less I am open to opinions. I just need one that will last me for about a year, can run Microsoft Office fairly well (autocad would be a bonus but I don't have high hopes in that under this price range), decent battery life, and a small screen size (13.3" tops). I already have a performance desktop to do the heavy work, I just need something simple to carry around that can do at least Microsoft Office fairly well (and general simple windows applications). Thanks in advance for any help provided smile.gif !
