Summary: Only use the notebook for about 30 days, while towards upgrade and then reboot and gave no sign of life. Only one LED lights up, try to start the hard disk and then stops. Now try changing the RAM, the hard disk and even the bios battery without any improvement. In short I was cheated. I am very desepcionado and regretted Amanzon bought for my notebook. Had placed my trust and now I have no money to buy back again.
Summary: The laptop I bought was advertised as new but missing power supply. Mouse pad did not function and mfg warranty was a already 6 months old meaning that the item was sold to another person initially and not new. Seller did not want to accept return of faulty item. I will not buy or recommend this seller to anyone. ASUS replaced the faulty mouse pad and turn around was slow.,it has a one-piece mouse that does not select and scroll well.
Cons: These were bought by a previous technology director of the school I work at. He bought about 250 of these laptops spending well over $100,000 on them. They are complete junk. On 240 out of 250 of them the number 2 key sticks on the keyboard. We have had HDDs crash (thankfully I disabled SSD as I have heard nothing but issues with those), Wireless stop working, screws fall out of the laptop, USB ports break, VGA ports break out of the laptop, DVD drives break, and othe...
Summary: The lack of touchscreen makes Windows 8 infuriating. Even with gestures turned off, the keyboard would skip and sputter all over the screen, despite my palms being up and not brushing the touchpad. Finally, it died when my toddler knocked it off the couch. Right after the 1 year mark of course. Considered it a blessing in disguise.
This has to be the worst computer I have EVER owned!

Summary: I had this for 1 month, had to send it back to have all the software reinstalled and now, right at the 1 year mark, the keyboard/mouse doesn't work at all! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!! IT IS JUNK!
Summary: I ordered the ASUS S56CA 15.6" (500 GB, Intel Core i3 3rd Gen., 1.8 GHz, 4 GB) Ultrabook - Black - S56CA-WH31. It arrived at my home DOA. What else can I say after that? I returned it, along with everything else I purchased to go with it that same day. So after a lot of expenses I had NOTHING that I could actually use and I had to return everything so I could at least get most of my money back, Wonderful experience? Nope! I sure don't think so.
Excerpt: We bought this with the understanding it was NEW. Unless we missed any fine print (which we went over carefully) it came in definitly used, even had some persons name setup in the login, and extra software already installed. Also missing original packaging. We buy quite a number of these and won't be purchasing here again.
Summary: I bought 2 of these laptops for my 2 children in college. BOTH are complaining about laptop randomly shutting down. I haven't found any helpful info online, but will try manufacturer. Thought it was very strange that both are doing the same thing, yet I couldn't find much info about others having same problem.
Summary: I'm a computer science student and I bought this computer for my girlfriend. So, yes, I know what I'm talking about. This computer shuts down on its own randomly, instantly, not just suspended or asleep, it dies. This is pretty annoying when my girlfriend is watching a movie or doing homework. I'm not happy at all.
