Summary: This laptop is extremely rugged, light, long battery, and with $150 of memory/SSD upgrades it is still going strong 2 years out. Once this laptop finally goes, I will replace it with another Asus Zenbook.
Pros: -4+ hrs of battery (even now, 2 years in I get close to 4hrs of web browsing/MS Office -Rugged. I have dropped this laptop more times than I care to admit. -Lightweight -Great for average day-to-day computing needs (browsing, Office) Ive had this laptop for 2+ years, and it has had its upps and d...
Cons: -At one point (while still under warranty), some keys on the kbd stopped working. Apparently this is a known issue, and they fixed it free of charge.

Summary: old, slow, and not as great as i thought it would be. i returned it and scored a deal using a sale with additional coupons to get a macbook air for the same price. i returned this and LOST 120$ worst decision to buy this then return it.

Cons: Screen broke twice. The laptop spent most of its first year at the manufacturer getting fixed. Then it was returned again, and the bios crashed. It was completely dead. Unfortunately the warranty I purchased separately was not extended during the time it was being fixed for falty hinges where the...
Summary: I've always liked the Zenbook format (it's a pretty blatant Macbook Air rip-off, but there's nothing wrong with ripping off a good thing), but didn't have enough need for a personal laptop to spend the money on a new one (even the cheaper models).
Pros: - thin, light, sturdy body - Windows 7 - matte display
