Summary: Good snappy laptop for the price. It seems like it sat in a warehouse for a while because the battery was dead on arrival and it took the better part of a day to get it patched up. Once it was patched and charged it ran quite well. Battery life is a bit underwhelming but its what I expected. Came with a external dvd/w drive that came in handy to install office.
Summary: This is a great ultra-portable. Pro's: - portability - keyboard - touchscreen - build quality - sexy look Con's: - screen glare - battery life (I am getting 4 hours max) Overall I can highly recommend it
Summary: I bought this laptop for my husband so that he could have a toy to play with. He is enjoying it immensely. He is able to connect it to our TV and watch Netflix and he recently downloaded a fun music mix program that allows him to use the touch screen to "scratch" as a DJ. I reviewed a lot of laptops for days and am very satisfied with my purchase.
Summary: As other reviewers have said this is a great laptop that doesn't skim on the quality for a budget pricetag. I also purchased this computer with a coupon from Staples for $425 +tax. It weighs as light as a netbook but with a sleek metal casing. There is a learning curve to Windows 8, and it's quite frustrating. I have had this laptop for a week, and several times my keyboard both touchscreen and physical froze up occasionally.
Summary: Great Little laptop for uni, I can take it everywhere with ease and the touch screen is quite useful. I have had this for over a year now and its still working just fine. However I have had problems with the charger that it came with so I would suggest a back up one is necessary.
Summary: By the time I leave this review there may not be any left to sell, but anyways... this is a solid purchase. The hardware and chassis are extremely solid, most solid I can remember from about 12 laptops owned since 1993. The few things that could be improved are battery life (though very rarely away from an electrical outlet), the mouse pad can tend to be a bit sensitive when you least want it to be, and no Bluetooth.
Summary: I bought this item about 8months ago , it was a lovely, portable, sleek device, fits into my handbag so i don't need extra laptop bag. When i travelled to the US it appeared the voltage there affected and it started malfunctioning. It cannot work when it is plugged to the charger (power), The cursor or mouse keeps jumping on the screen when i attempt to use it if its plugged to power, battery didnt last more that an hour half or 2hours max and the adapter/plug does have...
Summary: This is an excellent machine and performs really well with a keyboard that feels very good - however I was very disappointed to find that it had NO Bluetooth. This was not made clear in the specifications and I only found out for sure by emailing ASUS with the serial number.... I was very surprised about this as I already have another S200E and this does have Bluetooth. Why???
Summary: Initially there were teething problems with windows 8 updates failing to install, but the diagnostic tool sorted it out. Quick and easy to set up. The touch screen facility and apps make this similar to an iPad to use. However, the apps available in the store are more suited to the American market. Window 8.1 ( when I eventaully managed to install it ) seems to be working well. A great buy and would definately recommend it.
