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

Socrates N. Turner, IV "Pathologically Unwill..., Amazon
17 August 2014
  • 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 I think this may be an outdated model.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.

  • Summary: It is ok. On a scale of 1-5 I give it a 3. I wish I went with something else. It will suffice for now.

Has a overheating problem.

ShemSwag, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • 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.

Great hardware shame about windows 8

Amazon Customer "M.F.Stickley", Amazon
31 March 2014
  • 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.

Wish it was faster

Jeanette B. Lucas, Amazon

  • Summary: It is light weight. Windows 8 is a challenge, but that is a different issue. I should have upgraded to a faster processor. I like the machine. It is to carry with me to work on the road.
