The Asus VivoBook S400 is a notebook with a 14.1 inch touchscreen display, an Intel Ivy Bridge processor, and Windows 8 operating system. It won’t be released until October 26th, but the VivoBook S400 is up for pre-order from Amazon for $699.

Asus has also started taking pre-orders for the VivoBook X202, a smaller model with an 11.6 inch display, Core i3 CPU, and $599 price tag.

The larger S400 has a 14.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Core i5-3317U processor, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. The VivoBook S400 also has 24GB of solid state cache.

There’s 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports and a memory card reader. I also suspect there may be an HDMI port hiding on the other side, but the available photos don’t show that.

Windows 8 notebooks don’t need touchscreen displays, but the VivoBook S400 has one, which will let you take advantage of the new touch-friendly Windows 8 Start Screen and full-screen apps designed for tablets and other touch devices.

The notebook measures 13.3″ x 9.4″ x 0.8″ and weighs about 4.4 pounds.
