Summary: I bought my Ultra book from Asus as a Refurbished unit. Out of the box I had a lot of problems, and am currently in the process with Asus Support. VERY nice build for a Windows Ultra book, but there are some issues: -Rubber feet on the bottom of the laptop are falling off, they were not attached...
Summary: I have had a terrible experience with this computer. A coworker and I both ordered this and have had to send them in for maintenance within 6 months. My hard drive burned out (and I lost everything) and her battery completely stopped working. The wireless connection is abysmal.
Summary: They agreed to an RMA on my laptop model (similar to this one), and their website indicates they will provide status on the RMA within 1 business day of receipt and will typically complete repairs within 5-7 business days.
Summary: After a lot of research, I found this is probably the best laptop money can buy. I ordered the laptop, and received a fully functional, prfect machine. It's fast, it's beautiful, and it's incredibly light. A month later, problems started cropping up - software crashing, files getting deleted, etc.
Powerful laptop, but has serious hardware isues: shuts down unexpectedly

Summary: I have been using the laptop for about 3 months now. Despite its great performance (4 core multithreaded processors, great screen), I would not recommend it.

Summary: After several months of using this laptop, the hard drives were not functioning properly and my computer kept crashing. I sent the laptop to ASUS warranty for the first time only to have it returned with my 2nd solid state drive (SSD) still broken. Yes. STILL BROKEN!!
Summary: Da ich als einzige alternative zum MBP Retina das ux51 gesehen habe, konnte ich mich schnell entscheiden. Beim ersten gerät war alles schief und Krum (zurückgeschickt). Beim zweiten hatte ich eigenartige Spaltmaße, sodass man 3-4 mm Spaltmaß an verschiedenen Stellen hatte.
This is the worst thing Asus has produced in the last ten years

Summary: The locked RAID-0 configuration of the two SSDs makes it complicated to install Linux. The fan is working like crazy even on idle mode, tried BIOS update but it didnt't help. The case and design are really not good enough for such a price.
Summary: Habe das Asus mit 512GByte SSD bestellt. Erste Freude beim auspacken. Sehr schöne Verpackung, sieht wertig aus. Beim hinstellen des Notebooks war ich auch noch guter Dinge, nichts kippelte - wie zum Beispiel beim ux31a.

Summary: Das Notebook ist vom Aussehen, Verarbeitungsqualität und Preis/Leistung absolut super. Leider ist der Lüfter ständig am heulen (33dB), so dass man das Gefühl hat, man habe einen Tischstaubsauger vor sich. Sehr Schade und bei diesem Preis völlig inakzeptabel.
