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...
Summary: I have had this ultrabook for around 6 months now... There has been one issue with it shutting off randomly when I first got it and the start menu would never load until rebooting... I have since installed two "patches" and haven't had the start menu issue in around 4 months..
Summary: Had this laptop for a year w. Win8. Hated every second with this laptop (fortunately, this is one of ~ 6 PCs in this house, so I didn't have to use it exclusively)...but it never made any sense why it was so slow, the specs are pretty decent, esp with the dedicated SSD for boot.
Summary: Good machine, but I am currently experimenting some problems with a noise, similar to a click, coming from de HDisk. Ihad to call to Asus warranty service in Mexico to try to solve the problem
Its very comfortable. easy to use. Sound is awesome for a lap top.
