Asus Zenbook Touch U500VZ - Powerful but poor display
27 January 2014
Excerpt: This Asus is incredibly well built, its very powerful but its one major downfall is the display quality. Aesthetically it looks really nice with its brushed aluminum casing and sleek appearance.
Summary: I just received my product, turned it on, and was greeted with windows 8. I searched on-line for win 7 drivers with the intention of putting win7 on my new machine but apparently none exist. Oh dear. Also there is no CD/DVD drive so all my software that I need to install I can't install on it.
Summary: Slim Design =========== It's more beautiful in real life than you can imagine. Slim, light and stylish. Fast Resume from Sleep ====================== I counted. It was a few seconds. A blink, a cough, a sneeze can take longer. I was impressed. Speed ===== i7 intel chip thingymagig.
Summary: Very nice computer, really looks nicer than on the picutres. Its really quick and got a really nice graphic card. I had some troubles installing Windows 8 and related accounts etc. but its simply because its a new operation system for me.
Summary: Our organisation now has 5 of these laptops and the number of them is set to grow. We love these ASUS laptops, they're exceptionally fast, well made and absolutely worth every penny - I think the price is very good too for what you get.
Summary: This is an excellent product as long as you are aware of the distinction between Windows 7 and 8 and what the term Ultrabook actually entails. Windows 8 is a much more energy efficient OS than Windows 7, with many of the same features and feel as Windows 7.
