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: I've had this laptop for about 1.5 yrs now and my biggest complaint is the track pad. ASUS uses a proprietary technology and doesn't license technology like Synaptics which IMHO is the best tracking pad device out there.

Summary: Windows 8.1 is cumbersome and largely ineffective when used with this formfactor. But that's software. The hardware has not failed, but continues to shed tiny screws on a weekly basis. The computer continues to work.
Summary: The laptop is beautifully light and slim. I bought one for my wife for her birthday and I must say that it was a nice computer for what I got. Two for the bad. The wireless connection would not stay connected. I tried swapping out he cable modem the wireless router which didn't seem to help.
Summary: This is a great entry level touch screen laptop/ big ultra book with a few exceptions. The screen has so much glare it become very distraction. The view angle on this display is pretty sad. I want to say less the 15 degree shift from dead center will see significant distortions.
Summary: I was so excited for my "new" laptop; however, when i used it for a few months.. it started shutting off by itself. It got really loud and annoying during class.. On top of that... it gets really glitchy and laggy when I want to click on stuff sometimes.
Summary: I really loved this little laptop, but after 360 days it simply died. No power lights, no bootup, nothing. I quickly purchased a new power adapter thinking that was the problem, but no luck, so I contacted ASUS tech support.

Summary: after long research, I was very exciting getting that new laptop and it looked so cool when I got it, but after few hours of work, the hard drive started making clicking noises. It can happen to any laptop, but it was my case. Very sad.
