Summary: After much online research I got this machine for my wife in Feb 2014. Fast booting, light weight, decent battery life. A nice machine! Two weeks ago, April 2015, the machine started giving error messages - and then one of the harddrives died - taking everything with it (RAID 0).

Summary: My tab key broke. Asus tech support required repeated efforts to contact them. I called in and have an RMA and am sending this back. This is a significant inconvenience to my work. We paid top dollar and expected a quality product that failed at a basic level.
Great Design, Just needs better Execution (Two defective Screens for me).

Summary: After two defective screens I gave up on this laptop. It has such a sleek and stylish design and has many great qualities. The aluminum and the gorilla glass are fantastic. The performance is solid. Unfortunately, I just kept getting screens with checkerboard lines throughout.
Summary: A few days after getting the laptop, the screen started to flash. I’m not talking flicker, it was literally flashing like a strobe light which made it pretty much unusable. I called tech support and like other reviewers, I encountered some serious incompetence.
Summary: Let me start by saying this hardware is fantastic for an ultrabook. I don't think it justifies the ridiculous price, and you are really paying several hundred dollars for the "my computer looks better than yours" argument alone, however if that is important to you then it isn't an issue.
Summary: This is a very good-looking machine and performance is generally good. But a few design choices make it a bit of a let-down especially when one considers the very salty price: First, the 256GB SSD is way too small - with the recovery partition, system, program, normal losses, etc, you have barely...
Summary: Well I did love this laptop, until it just died on me. Hard drive is dead and it won't boot. I've babied this thing since I got it in January. ASUS support claims this is not systemic...even though another reviewer here states it happened to them twice.
