Summary: I had an Asus S200E that runs with Samsung 250GB Samsung Evo 840 SSD, when the screen died I made an attempt to fix it. Then decided the price of a refurbished S200e is reasonable enough that I decided to just get another replacement. I am very satisfied with the product swapped out the HD to SSD and it runs much faster that the the MAC Pro. The product described is just what arrived and I am very happy.
Summary: Purchased as a take-a-long computer for work or play. It is pretty reliable and very portable. Dont expect to play video games on it, but great for watching streaming movies, and facebook type stuff.
Summary: This is a great little laptop for the price: -Phenomenal build quality. The case is aluminum, apart from the bottom which is matte-black plastic. -The keyboard is very Mac-like, which is a good thing. -The trackpad is large, although you may not like the default driver. -The speakers are very good for a laptop of this size. -The power adapter is long and doesn't have a brick in the middle. -Great boot and resume time.
Summary: I bought the asus because I needed a computer that was small and light and had all the functionality of a full size laptop. I love the easy to use touch screen. The asus can replace all my other heavyweight computers. The price of the asus was well below any other touchscreen laptop.
Excellent build quality, great specs, amazing price.

Summary: Bought this laptop because it was budget-priced and upgradable. It certainly performed well and the build quality was nothing short of incredible. The housing is absolutely solid, the keys are comfortable, and the mousepad is big. Touchscreen worked well, also. My biggest complaint is not about this laptop specifically but about the Macbook-style design in general.
Summary: This computer met all my expectations and exceeded some. Being used to a quad core PC I was concerned that a dual-core laptop with on-board video would be sluggishly disappointing. That is not the case with the Asus S200E. It runs all my Windows programs seamlessly and smoothly. Please note, I am not a gamer and don't edit video or large music files. I use my laptop primarily for net surfing, email, word processing, and spreadsheets. I Skype on it while traveling.
