Summary: Not bad computer. Very convenient size to carry around and pretty quick and responsive. Getting used to Windows 8 was a little challenge at first but got easy after the first day and I ended up liking it more than XP and 7. Unfortunately had to return the computer. The Touchpad didn't work. I tried everything (fn+F9, download new drivers, etc) and called Asus support 3 times and still couldn't get it to work.
Long battery, nice display, poor touchpad, can be painfully slow

Summary: First, the pros: I bought this computer for portability and long battery life. It only weighs a couple of pounds and the battery lasts about 6 hours on power save mode. Also I really like the display. I can sit outside on a sunny day, while in the shade, and still see the screen fine. This wasn't possible on my older Dell. Also the speakers are pretty decent for laptop speakers. Now the negatives. The touchpad drives me crazy at times.
Summary: What, NO BLUETOOTH! That's right. I spent two weeks going over the specs, while looking for another ASUS notebook, after my 1002HA finally reached then end of its life. I have used three ASUS computers in the past 6 years, and loved them all. So, when researching this time, I found the X200MA. I need a touch screen and Bluetooth because I have a disability. According to the ASUS website, this unit has everything I need.
Summary: I ordered this for my daughter as a graduation gift, she wanted a white laptop. This is not all white as they made it seem. When you open it the border around the screen is black and I wanted all white.
