Summary: I initially bought this laptop due to all of the great reviews on Amazon. I got to admit, it looks really nice, it's very easy to type on and the battery lasts pretty long. But other than that, it's completely trash!! I am not even able to play a youtube video on it because it is sooooooo unbelievably slow!! I just wanted a slim, fast Ultrabook as it was described but unfortunately it can't do anything except looking good.
Summary: This product has long since been discontinued but if you can still find it, I highly recommend it. It is the perfect size for those who do not like a large 14" full size laptop, but do not want an ultrabook 12" or below. The screen size uses a slightly lower resolution than most full size laptops, but because the screen itself is of a hefty size, things on-screen are nice and large for the visually impaired like myself or the wife.
Summary: I purchased as a travel unit, but it is as large as my "regular" 15" laptop. Very slow from initial use. After only loading MS antivirus, Defender, and MS Office Suit, it began to lock up. After several days of light use, it began to blue screen. After the 4th or 5th blue screen, I sent it back. Amazing Amazon refunded the entire price! Fabulous service, but crappy product.
Summary: I'm not a power user and don't use any adobe products or stuff like that. So when this computer struggles to turn on, start Chrome, or play videos it really grinds my gears. Extremely slow boot ups, hardly could run any programs simultaneously. I do not recommend.
Summary: This is a very good looking, light, thin computer with a good amount of RAM (4 gigs) and a big harddrive (320 Gigs.)I'm glad it's got Windows 7 and not 8. It also costs short money: $400, roughly. There are two massive negatives with it: the hard drive is grindingly slow when you open the screen and it churns and churns for close to five minutes before everything's booted up and you can use it. Also, the processor is so slow you can barely stream video.
Summary: Works great with an external Apple keyboard and a mouse. The built-in touchpad is sensitive to proximity as well as touch, and it does not shut off during typing. As a result, the cursor is continually repositioned during typing. I use Kubuntu on this computer, but the Win7 Home Premium which came on the computer suffers from the same flaw. I have also discovered a strange behavior when setting the computer up to dual-head with an external 1080p monitor.
Summary: I never had any complaints about my win XP computers, I thought they were great, but then this Asus U32U-ES21 laptop came around, & I think its better. I was warned about limited angle view, I don't see that, I was hoping that it might provide me some privacy in the house, But I can see the screen at any angle. It does reflect some light, like a mirror. It has a very sharp clear picture, almost as crisp as a cell phone screen, but much bigger, 13.3 inches.
