The specs make this seem like a fantastic buy... not so much

Summary: Asus has a tremendous reputation in the tech community so I gave this the benefit of the doubt. I think this may be an outdated model. For instance, I have a dual band wifi router. This ultrabook can only connect to the slow 2.4 ghz band and does not detect the 5.0 ghz band. Cons- The trackpad is incredibly annoying. I don't know the logic behind the zones on this thing but it ends up registering movement I don't intend, with an infuriating frequency.
Summary: Had it worked when I received it I know it would have met my needs, but it had a display problem that appears to have been with the graphics card or cable connection. Since I did not want to void the warranty or return policy I returned it rather than trying to fix it myself.
Perfect size, light and really usefull if you need ...

Summary: Perfect size, light and really usefull if you need to carry it all over the city. Windows 8 is not my favorite version but if you use the computer for basic things is ok. Im happy with my purchase.
Summary: Bought this laptop but put it through something like Virtual DJ and the whole laptop gets hot. I don't think that this is a laptop that can be able to do hardcore things but if you want a laptop that sticks to the basics, this is the one for you. Just don't overwork it.
Summary: Its light, sturdy and well designed. It is quick too. However because of windows 8 I use my wife's Chromebook whenever possible.Also I spend most of my time inside chrome browser on the notebook because the windows 8 tiles are just a huge, slow, advertising space for all things Microsoft. Discovered an app on Chrome that gives a virtual start button to all Google apps from the desktop.
