It also needs constant updating and windows 8 is terrible. The battery life is also terrible
15 December 2014
Summary: The main reason I purchased this laptop is due to the fact it boasts a 2 second start up. I think the only time I've experienced that is the first time I turned it on. This ultrabook takes more time to turn on than my computer from the early 90s. It also needs constant updating and windows 8 is terrible. The battery life is also terrible. You can get maybe 2 hours out of it. I wish I had kept looking instead of making this purchase.
Summary: I used this machine very lightly. It has never even been out of the house. However, after warranty expired it began experiencing problems in restart and shutdown. Best buy Geek squad could not fix it. Missing files and Recovery media. Had to send it to ASUS in Milpitas, Ca. Got a RMA authorization from them. They have the machine for over a month. Initially tried to tell me the LCD was cracked. When I asked for evidence....like pictures..

Summary: Product worked great for a few weeks then a BSOD would randomly occur (continues to happen). I contacted ASUS tech support via online and their 1-888 number and they told me to factory reset the device (have done this twice) . It took me 30 minutes to reboot this laptop just to write this review. I would recommend staying from ASUS entirely. Buyer beware.
Summary: I purchased this laptop almost a year ago and it has met all of needs and fully supports and runs all of the hardware I've added since then. I would recommend this laptop to anyone that is not a heavy gamer requiring a little more speed.
Summary: I purchased mine about 1 year ago, and went to the expense to have it downgraded to Windows 7 since Windows 8 sucks. It was going along well, but then I had hardware failure - could not connect to the internet. Luckily it was within 1 year, so I sent it back to ASUS and sure, enough, they replaced the bad hardware, and sent it back with a clean copy of WINDOWS 8! I sent in all the paperwork indicating WINDOWS 7! I'm going to sell it as is and get something else.
