Fantastic ultrabook, great battery, UNINSTALL ASUS INSTANT-ON to avoid permanent sleep issues

p. kop, Amazon
3 March 2015
  • Summary: This thing is fantastic. I'll never get a machine without SSD now. This thing's light, solid feeling, and the battery lasts a lot longer than other laptops. Very quiet. I will say that I did uninstall all of the ASUS power/sleep management things (instant-on in the programs/features). They tried to make a utility to do some hybridized 'sleep' that wakes the machine up faster than normal Windows Sleep. I removed all of that. Windows does a fine job.

Touchpad alone ruins the device.

  • Summary: The touchpad is so bad this laptop is unusable. Putting your palms anywhere near it generates a random stream of mouse clicks.

Love it

Ed, Amazon

  • Summary: Love it - I love Windows 8 and the form factor of this laptop. There's lots of reviews of both but my favorite aspects of the Asus is the aluminum chassis which feels solid and rich and keeps it cool. The track pad is huge and sensitive. The keyboard also has a nice feel.

Such a beautiful machine. BUT NOT RECOMMENDED.

Rezaul, Amazon
18 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a very solid feel (physically) machine. Aluminium feel is fantastic. I really liked the form factor. keyboard was so nice. Simply probably one of the most beautiful and solid feel machine. THE BAD: first one crashed (apparently it was the SSD) after two weeks of extremely light use. It was my new baby so I did not use it that much. So I contacted the seller (not Asus) and they very generously replaced it. The second one also failed after 3 weeks.

Different store, same problem

Hypno Toad, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this from the Microsoft store, and I fared better than people here in that it lasted more than four weeks before it couldn't boot up anymore. Took it to the store and the computer was not able to recognize its own hard drive. Luckily, I was still eligible for a refund through Microsoft. If I did not have the booting issue, I would still give it four stars.

It's a lemon and from the looks of the other reviews they're ALL LEMONS!

Mathew E Ritter, Amazon
5 July 2014
  • Summary: Great laptop but broke for the 2nd time on its own with a BSOD. I can't login again. I want a refund but I'm just past the window [Edit: Amazon let me return it for a refund because of the circumstances]. I called Asus for support and they asked for my Microsoft password to log in to the machine even though I can't. I refused. I'm really disappointed in this laptop and that Asus would actually make such an unreasonable request.

I run lots of programs simultaneously for work and it is super fast. The boot up time is really fast ...

sam kidd, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first received it there were some issues with updates, it took around 20 hrs to install the 90+ updates! Since then it has been working really well, I run lots of programs simultaneously for work and it is super fast. The boot up time is really fast and the screen/graphics are great. The web cam/microphone is also really good and clear for teleconferencing. I would highly recommend this laptop for anyone who wants a sleek, light, work-suitable ultrabook.
