Stylish laptop with great screen, and actually useful added software.

iplayfullout, Amazon
21 January 2015
  • Summary: This is a wonderful laptop. Super stylish, beautiful screen and accessories, and boots quickly. Normally I am used to bloatware installed by OEMs, but this one had minimal added software - and what was there worked flawlessly. I especially appreciated the ASUS performance monitor - that shows disk/memory/network access per process.

Great Laptop Until it Dies...

Karis, Amazon
6 January 2015
  • Summary: It was a great computer until it died out of nowhere. I had the computer slightly over a year (conveniently when the included warranty expired) when the hard drive (boot sector) failed abruptly. I wanted an SSD because it was supposed to be more reliable, but apparently not. The one used by this laptop is not common, so I can't buy a replacement hard drive either. Of course, if you don't care that your laptop may die in 13 months, read on.

So close

Robert Von Roch, Amazon

  • Summary: I loved this laptop, I would have loved it even more if I didn't have to return it due to a faulty keyboard but that's not the laptops fault I tried to cheap out and buy used. My only wish would be the chipset and processor be updated to the most current version and keep the nice matte finished screen instead of the high gloss found on newer win8 machines with touch.

Runs like a champ; for very light work.

+Fred Evans, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this one a year later to replace the UX31A-DB51 that I sent back 2 weeks after buying due to faulty keyboard and track pad. The UX31A-DH51 is awesome, bought it in Feb 2013, no problems. Runs like a champ. Though I only use it for light word processing and nothing else. I still have my work horse machines for the heavy lifting. Both are core i7 with 8g+ or more of RAM, 1g+ discrete graphics cards or more; one is a Desktop the other is a 5lb laptop.

Starts out good, turns horrible

Jim, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: When I first got this laptop I loved it. It's light weight, the screen looks good, the keyboard feels good, everything seems great. However, after 4 months of use I noticed a white smear on the screen. If you google this issue, you'll see that a lot of other people have this issue and it's caused by the keyboard rubbing on the screen when you shut the lid. You can't even close the laptop or every time you do it will just cause further damage to the screen.

Best Laptop Ever

MMMMMM, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: This Asus UX31A-DH51 is my best laptop ever. It beats my wife's $1k+ Dell laptop easily. This Asus is lightning fast on boot because of the solid-state drive--128 GB is plenty of storage, too. I travel, and this laptop is a good traveling companion. It is rugged and beautiful. I use my ham radio internet remote base on this laptop--it is very stable and the audio is superb. I had initial problems with the touchpad. After I updated the drivers it is rock solid.
