Summary: I got this laptop a couple of months ago, and I use it as my primary computer, as I am a student. At first, I wasn't a fan of Windows 8, but now I love it, especially after the recent upgrade to 8.1. The apps in the Microsoft store are awesome. Windows 8 itself has a good deal of programs built in, but it's nice to be able to download others such as games and planners, etc. My favorite app is Netflix, actually, most shows and movies on there only work in the app.
Summary: The product was mostly what I expected - a good screen, solid construction, and it really does boots in 2 seconds. I was surprised that it arrived with a dead battery, first time I've seen that. I'm testing now to assure there isn't a parasitic drain when shutdown. Also, the space bar key does always work when I press it, but my wife hasn't had any problem with the keyboard. I've owned Asus before so I know warranty repair will be easy if these do turn out to be issues.
Summary: The Windows 8/8.1 shipped with VivoBook allows for backward compatibility with Windows 7 apps. The GPS was a nice surprise. Wonder how to obtain non-cloud based GPS maps; Sometimes it's clear . The mouse pad has a nice feel and the touch screen works well. The touch screen frequently prefers to tip rather than recognize my tap. I remain mystified by ASUS's partitioning of the disk drive. Why split it?
Summary: This laptop is great! One could not ask for more, given the price. My only problem is that the fans are located BENEATH the laptop. I am a bit baffled by this move. I guess Asus had their reasons. WIndows 8.1 is better than windows 8, and once you get the hang of it, its beautiful. Oh, the touch screen is great. Over all it is a great product.
Summary: Nice computer. Here is why I chose the Asus: I wanted a chance to try out windows 8. Wanted an 11 inch screen. Wanted something inexpensive, as computers become obsolete so quickly. At under 400 bucks on amazon, this computer delivers. I don't care that battery is not removable or that it is set at 4 gigs of RAM. Touch screen is good. Video streams smoothly. Speakers surprisingly good for what they are. Loaded my old windows programs (including Publisher 98!
Summary: Maybe it's me but sometimes the screen seems insensitive when I try opening and closing apps. especially if you get out of the center of the screen I have to use the mouse to make it work right. Other than that I love it. It's advertised as grey but mine is almost all black, OK by me but thought I would mention it.
Summary: Cheap, light, elegant. Nice laptop. One star less because battery autonomy (3 hours). I thought 11,6" screen it was too tiny but no, it is ok. Key has good size and the keyboard looks good built. Great buy!
Summary: This is an excellent tool for my projects. It looks really attractive, I got the portability and ease of use found in a tablet and I have the power and function of a lap-top computer. I am now able to interact anyhow I please with my Asus Vivobook. Because of it's size, I can carry it very easily in my regular shoulder bag without bulk or weight.
