Summary: Bottom Line Up Front: I went through THREE of these before I just paid a little more money and got the Dell. Really Wanted to Like it… Just Was Not Quite Good Enough. So, if you don't know, ASUS makes system boards for a lot of other computer manufacturers. Like many products from Asia that are reverse-engineered and straight out copied from the companies they are making components for, this one has some improvements over the copy and falls way short.
I do not recommend that anyone purchase this laptop

Summary: I bought this laptop in May, 2014. Overall it's been disappointing for the following reasons. 1. Battery life is mediocre, about 2 to 3 hours. 2. Haswell i3 processor is not particularly fast. I bought this laptop to replace a 3 year old HP laptop with an AMD Llano processor that wasn't much slower than the i3. 3. Glare on the screen from nearby lighting is pronounced. Reading the screen in or near sunlight is nearly impossible. 4. Cheap keyboard. 5.
at best, an open box item that had been repackaged

Summary: This item from Tiger Direct arrived in a box sealed with an ASUS sticker. When I opened it there where minor scratches inside and out suggesting this was, at best, an open box item that had been repackaged. It was a gift, so I didn't have time to return it. So Tiger Direct one, this customer zero. As for the computer, it seems to work fine. I like everything but the loud clicking mouse pad. It took some time to upgrade to Windows 8.1, but it went without a hitch.
Summary: My asus 1015pn finally died and was looking for a replacement and the x200la seems to fit the bill. Runs cool, nice screen graphics, about the same size as the 1015pn. Hardware uses w8 64 bit and w8.1 64 bit. Has I3 cpu resulting in a faster unit than the 1015pn and also has 4 gig ram . Not really a game machine but a good work on the road unit.. Item was shipped in a timely fashion and case looks ok. Would have liked an all aluminum case ..
Summary: I feel is a good notebook. No ultrabook. everything works fine. i have no complain whatsover for the price. THE ONLY THING that would make this laptop for the price is that they need to change the touchpad which sounds horribly filmsy and poorl made.
Summary: Although I have been using the computer for about one month and using a touchscreen in a laptop is a new experience for me I find it very user friendly. I was looking for a compact and light computer and compared to previous laptops this one is comfortable to use.
