Summary: I am a college student and I was looking for a portable laptop to take to class everyday. So, I bought this laptop about a year ago. At first, I loved it. It was light, fast enough, beautiful, and thin, exactly what I was looking for. Once I'm a while the trackpad would act funny. But it never was a problem.
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).
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.
Summary: I purchased this laptop specifically for the gorgeous 1080p matte screen. Because of Windows 8 it seems impossible to find a decent pc without touchscreen, let alone with a display of this quality. The computer arrived on time and well packaged. I was immediately struck by the build quality - incredibly sleek, lightweight, and solid. Unfortunately, the problems began as soon as I powered it up. I noticed a cluster of dead pixels near the center of the screen.
Buy this product from this manufacturer at your risk

Summary: If you 'google' this product, you will find many other purchasers have had massive problems with it. It would seem to have inherent design/manufacture problems to do with its power management system and the motherboard. What is more concerning is that ASUS does not provide an acceptable level of 'ASUS owned' technical/service backup for their products.
Summary: Not satisfied product and poor service. Always has Internet connection issue and the touchpad is too flexible to use which I can hardly control it very well. I required a return within 30 days, but wa rejected by the seller. Very Annoying.
