Lightweight beauty, that is tough and good on battery life
20 February 2014
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.
Summary: Great profile. Nice machine once everything was set up properly. Keyboard is not backlit I don't think. I read about problems with keyboard, but our employee who is using it has not mentioned any problems. So far pretty good.
Summary: There's a lot to like about this ultrabook. It's light, has good battery life, and the screen is bright and clear. Two minor nits: I'm not a fan of the chiclet keys but I see why they are used in this configuration, and the embedded L/R click buttons are not what I would have designed in.
Summary: I bought this basically looking for a more powerful version of a netbook with styling comparable to a macbook air. I do basic browsing, netflix, etc. but have no patience for slow or choppy response. So far it has been very good. When I open it from sleep it is ready to go almost instantly.
Summary: I really love everything about this machine except the keyboard. Maybe I will get used to it, but when I type I find that if you don't press the keys hard eough (enough) it just happened, then you always have to go back and correct what you are typing. It happens a lot with the N key.
