Summary: When I got this it looked amazing and stunning and has great features. But beware (this could just be mine) After a few month it wouldn't charge and we had to send it back to ASUS. They Fixed it but a few days ago we had to resend it because the same problem happened thank goodness for that warranty. Still if it would happen again It would probably cost way more to fix because it was in the computer not AC.
Summary: I travel a lot and found carrying this laptop as easy as carrying an ipad. I use it for typical office work and nothing intensive like gaming. When I am traveling, I watch netflix and do skpe with it's built in camera and I am satisfied with the performance. It really looks nice, better than macbook air in my opinion. One issue I have is overheating of the laptop when I hook it up to two external monitors through the vga and hdmi ports.
Summary: I purchased this computer 2/23/12. I paid a premium price for this computer due to its design, lightweight and portable. 3 months out of warranty it is not functional and must be replaced. First the keyboard- as you are typing you can feel the keyboard click yet the computer does not register a letter. Then you go back and fill in all the letters (lots of them) that the computer skipped.
Summary: The computer is amazing. the only thing that they dropped the ball is that there are no lights on the keyboard. Using on the dark is quite hard. Besides that, no problems at all. The cover that comes with it is amazing and the accessories as well such as the adapters. Unexpected and impressed. Well done!!!
Meh. Not the quality I expected from previous experience with ASUS
13 March 2013
Summary: I have been using this ultrabook for about 7 months now. I bought it because I have had only AWESOME experiences with my previous ASUS laptops (g52 and u32). There isn't anything really wrong with this laptop but there are quite a few things I am a little bit bummed about. Cons: -Screen started being buggy after a few months (discolored pixels on one half of the screen) but if you wiggle the screen it goes away. -Left alt key is bad.
Summary: UPDATE: The machine is still dead but after submitting further information Asus has confirmed the machine is under warranty. I will be sending it in for service and will update further. UPDATE: This computer started shutting down randomly less than two months after I bought it and won't take a charge so it died completely when the battery ran out.
Summary: great sale product exactly what i wanted. Only complaint was that the version of windows did not have the license installed upon arrival. No issue for me because the license on the case worked just fine but many people might not know how to install the license. Great sale!
