Summary: I have owned this computer for almost 10 months... Let me start by saying i WANTED to love it. I had an older model Asus for three years before buying this one and really liked the product. Figured I'd get a new one that was lighter and faster with the latest features... Don't judge a book by its cover. This computer is beautiful to look at but it just does not perform all that well.
Summary: I purhcased a new Asus notebook and had a TERRIBLE experience with this product. The keys don't work, and it came like this right from the box. And their support people proved completely useless and couldn't help me fix it. I don't recommend ANYONE to buy Asus.
Summary: I had a less expensive version with touch. I thought I would upgrade to this and give the smaller heavier version to my son. Nice idea. Did not work out. 1) when I bought this, there were complaints about the wifi. I'm pretty savvy. So I bought it and upgraded drivers. Six months later, it can't stay on my router at night. My phone can, and another laptop can. I bought a wifi adapter but that has other problems. Top hinge is weak.
If it wasn't for the unexpected shutdown issue, would be a pretty good laptop

Summary: This Laptop Can Shutdown Unexpectedly ================================ I've been using this laptop for over a year and a half, and it's been a pretty good experience until just recently within the past week, when I started experiencing sudden, unexpected, and seemingly random shutdown issues. This computer has unexpectedly crashed (completely powered down) on me 3 separate times on each of the past 3 days.
Summary: this is a great buy. From what I know, this is one of the last models that has a matte screen(non reflective) and is not a touchscreen , I just hate touchscreens. Beautiful high resolution screen, very good lighted keypad, light, thin, boy, am I glad my old Lenovo broke , Happy customer here.
Summary: I absolutely love the look and feel of this lap top. I am returning it for 2 reasons. The wireless connection is from an Intel card (Centrino Advanced N-6235). The initial connection seemed to work fine, but after a few hours the connection would periodically drop. Subsequent connection would become difficult and other than a full shutdown and reboot nothing would reliable make the wifi connection.
Summary: I purchased on September 15, 2013 and waited to write this review to give the laptop a proper amount of use. It failed in just over a month and had to be shipped to the factory for repair on October 23, 2013. Customer service was poor in finding information on the repair and the time frame it would take. They do not provide status and the people on the phone were not polite. The laptop failed again this past week and will be shipped in again on May 12, 2014.
Summary: I've had this laptop for about a month now. I have been working on my dissertation for a while and needed something light and portable. I think this laptop greatly fulfills my needs as far as portability. I really enjoy the fact that it turns on quickly and processes run quicker. If anything, I'm highly disappointed by the webcam quality. I Skype a lot with friends and family and find that the webcam is not light sensitive.
