Summary: Exactly as described and just what expected. Ran great right out of the box, touch screen is very responsive. Limited installed software, but that was clear upfront and I already had a MS 2013 office licence. Doesn't feel heavy or bulky despite its larger size.
Excellent product - but Windows 8 rained on the parade!

Summary: Top -of- the- line product, that ASUS S550CA. However, Windows 8 seems to be a bare-bottom, experimental platform. Office 365 is inexorably expensive, even at the cheapest option and often switches desktop displays on its own, intermittently.
Summary: When I bought this notebook I was not expecting it to be so thin! I love it. Has a disc drive and 3 USB ports and even an SD reader. Light and absolutely amazing. I love ASUS products. It's an i5 but runs the new final fantasy xiv perfectly when on Asus' performance feature.
Summary: I was going to buy the 14'' non touch screen version of this laptop from my local BJs until I saw this one on amazon. For an extra $70 I added a bit of size to the screen and the touch screen capabilities. It's great, I love it so far!
ASUS VivoBook S550CA-DS51T 15.6-Inch Laptop Review
1 August 2013
Summary: I have only owned my ASUS computer for about two weeks. So far I haven't had any problems except for the following: 1. The touchpad sometimes takes extra strokes to respond to the given command. For instance, when you tap the pad with both fingers it is the equivalent of right-clicking the mouse.
Summary: I like the computer, but the new Windows is very confusing. Trying my best to get used to it! I heard that they're working on a new one to simplify things. Can't wait for that to come out. I'll be first in line to download it! :-)
Summary: I absolutely love the look, fit, and finish of the ASUS VivoBook S550CA-DS51T. It's pretty amazing that the overall thickness of this laptop is under an inch and yet it has a DVD R/RW drive. Battery life and the performance are on par per the price.
Summary: When I fist picked up the computer after receiving it, I was like "wow! is that it?" I've never had a computer this thin. It didn't feel like a normal laptop in my hands. I really like how thin and light it is. The display is great.
Thin and not THAT heavy...an ultrabook that has good functions.

Summary: PROS: -I am so particular with the weight, since I travel a lot, and I carry my laptop so I can do my work anytime, anywhere. I am not disappointed coz with all the functions i.e. optimal drive, and great cooling fan (no noise at all), the laptop is light as what I expected.
