Summary: I can't even begin to express how bad Windows 8 is. I just...I can't. It makes me sad and disappointed that MS will probably ride the barf-train that is Metro for at least a few more versions before they finatlly give up on it for their desktop OS. If I worked for MS, I don't even know if I could stick around through this mess. I would quit. I would quit and I would specifically mention Windows 8 and Metro as the reasoning. You want to use Metro for phones/tablets?
Cons: Windows 8 is worse than Vista. There. I said it. I can't blame Asus for W8s flaws, but I do believe theyre partly to blame for my inability to upgrade to 8.1. When trying to update, I'm informed that the install can not continue until I uninstall Cypress Trackpad.

Summary: Great product, Asus build high quality product with affordable price. This one is a winner with light AC charger, i3 is fast enough for the on the go light weight VivoBook. The nice feature of quick boot is so cool. All the ports and connectors are well fitted, touch screen is smooth.

Great laptop for teenager, college student, or simply someone who needs a small laptop!

Summary: Ever since I purchased my ASUS VivoBook I keep catching myself on touching screens of non-touchscreen computers haha. My family is a fan of ASUS laptops because they last long and don't have issues. Obviously I love the hot-pink color but besides that this laptop met my other expectations, too. It's light enough that I can take it with me daily to campus (I commute by public transport).
