Summary: I bought this notebook based on its features and generally positive reviews. After using it for about two month I now regret this purchase. The keyboard is flimsy, the middle section literally moves up & down as you type, and I just can't get comfortable typing on this machine.
Pros: Bright screen Good battery life Compact charger
Cons: Flimsy keyboard Poorly manufactured trackpad No cap lock light
Summary: I purchased this laptop in August of 2013. For the first year, it worked well enough, but as soon as it hit the 1 year mark three of the screws on the back came off and the keyboard gradually stopped working due to some problem with the hinge.
Summary: My main computer, since the time I bought it I've done some upgrades, (unlike other thin computers this one allows upgrades) Fast, the trick for fast boot up with the sdd and the hdd it's amazing Love the touch screen, the trackpad is big which makes it perfect, the sound is not that great but I...
Summary: I love this computer i purchased it for work use last year and since then i haven't had any issues with it, i did upgrade the memory due to all the apps i run at once but its light weight and looks amazing most people think its an imac when they see it due to the metal body. Highly Recommended
Summary: I have had this computer for slightly over a year. In that time I have had to send it in to Asus twice for problems with the keyboard because random keys would stop working. It took them almost two weeks to process and send back my computer both times.
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this laptop. Touch pad is cheap and finicky. The multi-touch gestures work sporadically and driver needs reset for them to work again. Battery life is decent. Start up times with the solid-state HD I guess are faster but not significantly.
Summary: HDD started failing after only a year. I just purchased a replacement HDD, imaged the old drive and installed. It worked without a hitch. Also, the screws that secure the bottom plastic plate have just been loosening and falling out.
Summary: Amazed at the speed of this laptop. The write speeds are incredible if you put the OS on the SSD. My quad core 4.5 GHz processor on my gaming desktop can't copy files faster than this laptop. Its got a built in touch screen made of very tough glass that is glare resistant.
