Summary: This laptop is excellent for heavy use, and is the best for the price that I found it for. Are you a gamer, a professional programmer, or a designer? Do you need a computer that needs to last from years on end? Then this is the laptop that you are looking for.
Summary: Have had mine for one year. Excellent machine, all around. Really nice size, slim, light, great screen. It's not as rigid as I'd like, but in this price category, it is more than acceptable. The finish looks great, but shows fingerprints and could be prone to scratching (but mine has none so far).
Summary: Within 1 week of getting the laptop I got the click of death (hard-drive failure). Didn't drop it, mishandle it or anything out of the norm. I immediately contacted ASUS support through chat, and in about 10 minutes she determined for me to send the laptop in for repair under warranty.
Summary: Like other users comment before this laptop drops the wifi ocassionally, I don't know if in the future a driver update will fix this but right now the only option is to use a wifi usb adapter (less than 10 dlls).
Summary: I chose this ultrabook because it was the most complete regarding RAM, hard drive storage and size, but I thought that it would be a little lighter because of being an ultrabook. Apart from the weight I really liked this computer.
Summary: Overall, the laptop was fine, working very well. Only the screen is kind of shining and cannot be the most optimal. Besides that, computer is ok given the price and the characteristics. I love touchable screens, so this is a very good option for that
Summary: For under $600 it seems to be an adequate choice for my general every day use. Mostly used for email, Internet searches, Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, photo editing, music, etc. No gaming. Since I haul my laptops around a lot weight was a consideration.
Summary: I have had this laptop for almost 6 months now and it has done very well so far. It is very light weigh and I love the touchscreen option. The user interface takes soome time to get use to if you are not currently a windows 8 user.
Average Notebook Made Excellent with Inexpensive Upgrades
10 March 2014
Summary: I've had this for a few months. With the price dropping this was an excellent choice for a laptop. The 4 GB 1600 MHz RAM is embedded leaving an available slot for expansion. I recommend 8 GB 1600 memory giving the laptop 12 GB. I also replaced the hard drive with a solid state 250 GB.
