Summary: I bought this computer in 2012. So I've been using it for quite some time. Pros: easy to carry, it is still alive, design is beautiful, Cons: runs slow, does not load fast, needed to get asus to change the battery as mine kept shorting out, a bit load at times, freezes evry now and then, Video card...
It also needs constant updating and windows 8 is terrible. The battery life is also terrible

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.
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.

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.
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.
