Summary: I have never placed my hands on a better computer in my life. It's stunning. Ever since I got this Zenbook three months ago, I haven't gone a few days without a compliment on how gorgeous it is. It definitely rivals the Macbook Air in every aspect except battery life, which is still up-to-par or better than most laptops of this caliber. I haven't gotten bored with the design or anything about it.
Looks like a great product but will cause you many a head-ache in the long term

Summary: At face value, this ultrabook is an incredible deal; powerful processor w/ intel hd 4000 graphics, great build, an amazing screen resolution and from a historically fantastic company. However, after a year of ownership, I cannot recommend it. I'll place this here to save some time TL:DR - Power adapter failed after 4 months, not covered by warranty. Hard drive fails (bootsector failures) after 13 months - return to ASUS in California for repair (lost all data).
Summary: This is a very sexy laptop. Thin and light. Decent sound for a compact computer. My biggest gripes were the lack of hard drive space. The laptop specs were listed at 128 GB. However only 90 GB is usable and of that 90 GB, 40 GB were already filled with pre-installed software. The laptop also had issues connecting with my WiFi which none of my past laptops/ phones/ ipad had problems with.
Summary: Incredible price for this laptop, I have been using it for several weeks and I'm pretty happy with it. Very fast and light. If you are looking for a well related price-quality laptop this si the one.
Summary: I'm a college student. Bought this computer as a replacement for an original HP Envy 15 that I've had for 3 years. The two things I was looking for primarily were 1) battery life and 2) speed. My last PC had unbelievable spec, the hardware is competitive even now. However, it overheated like you wouldn't believe, and the battery whittled down from the 2 hours at purchase all the way down to 0 (I literally removed it as it just added to the weight).
Summary: If you hear people saying negative things about this laptop, or really picky things about this or that which are making you think twice about getting it, just ignore them. This laptop is incredible. Asus make insanely good hardware, from the moment you open the box everything inside will look clean and slick as if they put heaps of thought into presentation. Which they did.
Summary: Very light, stylish, and powers up quickly. I have had wifi connectivity issues when all my other gear has functioned, flawlessly. And the touchpad gestures will randomly turn off, which is annoying. Aside from that, it does the job very well and makes my life as a student considerably easier. The battery life lasts me through a day of classes and then some. Everyone who has seen it has commented on how good it looks. Not surprising.
Do Not BUY!!! Slow as molasses. Not a touch screen.

Summary: Please please please do not spend your hard earned money buying this awful laptop. I expected a touch screen...it did not have one. I spend hours attempting to download app updates that wouldn't update, and had to manually deal with other software issues that should have automatically worked. I do not mind tinkering with a laptop to get special features to work, but this one was way too much work for too little value.
