Summary: I bought this in 2012 and made the mistake of buying another one soon after. I have had to spend nearly USD 300 on one of them for first repairing the slot which takes in the charger and then having to replace the screen which I was advised by the ASUS service centre (in Dubai where I live) had gone...
Summary: I bought this in June of last year. I was pleased with it until I noticed splotches that look like coffee stains under the screen. They show up under light background and are multiplying. Additionally, I am noticing light spots on the screen as well..
Summary: Excellent laptop! super light and battery last hours!!!Audio is loud and crisp. i7 speed is not questionable! Could have used more RAM but 4Gb is not bad. Lightening fast boot time (in seconds!!!).
Lightweight beauty, that is tough and good on battery life

Summary: I have had my Zenbook for 15 mos. When it was only a few months old, it knocked it off a high table onto a concrete patio. After a moment of terror, I found that the only damage was a scratch on the beautiful polished aluminum case and small dent at one corner.
Zenbook: decent system but the terrible keyboard ruins the experience

Summary: The ASUS "Ux31 Series Ultra Slim" laptop (netbook?) is a fast & compact computer which seems to be solid and so far (after a bit over half a year) dependable. It has not crashed once although there are the occasional hangs one tolerates with Windows.
Summary: I owned one of these and just after a year the thing crapped out on me!!! Can't get the power to turn on! Useless and a wast of money!! If you research this laptop online you will find there are soooooooo many people this happened to!!! Will never buy from this company ever again!!
Summary: This machine has cost us quite a bit of time in troubleshooting nearly straight out of the box. To be fair, the laptop seemed to work ok in its first few hours. Then the problems started: 1) one of the USB ports stopped working.
Garbage thanks to the mousepad and a weird glitch it makes while watching video or playing games

Summary: This is pure junk. You can't even write a single sentence without the mouse pad moving the cursor everywhere and sending you to different screens. I tried support and changing the sensitivity on the oversized mouse pad but nothing works. It is pure garbage that I'm looking to replace.
