  • Summary: items to be improved 1. indicator when using Caps 2. 1 port for mic, and 1 port for headset 3. windows 8 is annoying - it takes you to a new screen when you do not mean to, and you do not even know why it happened. sometimes it pops up window store, but no button to close it. user is forced to go to the store. it just makes users hate windows more.

  • Summary: Overall, this is a decent to good Ultrabook, providing fantastic value at the price point the i3 version is being offered for ($500 at time of purchase). I'd rate it at 3.5 stars.

  • Summary: Works very well (once you have worked out windows 8). sadly it stopped booting up in August and then seemed to expire completely. I have asked Asus to repair it and I will see what happens. Watch this space. In their favour they say they have arranged a courier to collect within 48 hours. So far the returns experience seems fine.
