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: This model has a very serious screen issue that Asus has not addressed! I bought the $1,500 model new, and the screen died when it was JUST out of warranty! Google search "ux31e screen problem" and you'll see that there are MANY people who have had the same issue.
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: 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
5 January 2014
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.
Summary: I spent almost two hours on the phone with ASUS technical support. The Ineternet Explorer browser would not let me go to any websites or downloand any software from the Internet. I wanted to download Google Chrome but the IE browser would not let me - would block me from doing so. Very frustrating.
Summary: ssd crashes. Bought this about 16 months ago and was instantly impressed with it. Some users had touch pad issue becaue they didnt apply the bios update. Its light, super fast and awesome.. until... my ssd drive crashed.
Summary: i bought this computer five months ago. everything seemed to work fine. however the screen went white. because I bought it online and it was an older model asus will not honor the year warranty it came with. buyer beware asus will not accept any form of purchase proof to honor their warranty.
