Summary: PROS: -Very fast CPU -More storage space than most Ultrabooks -Stylish and attractive design CONS: -So-so trackpad -Overly aggresive adaptive brightness system If you want a lighter laptop that has a better screen, take a look at this one: http://amzn.to/1K7niK2
Summary: Great laptop, speed, lightweight, performance is great....ASUS screen warranty not so much! Bought this laptop in July 2014 and my screen went out last week. Computer had never been dropped, spilled upon,etc.
All sparkle and no substance. You can do much better for the money.

Summary: The form factor is the only thing this laptop has going for it. I bought this for my wife. I personally use a macbook air and a variety of other machines for work. We didn't want to spend the money for a Mac since she only uses it for light leisure tasks. I really wish we went with a Chromebook.
Not Quite As Impressive, Overall, As The i5 Haswell MacBook Air Model

Summary: This Asus UX302LA ultrabook is by far the most compact and well-built windows laptop I've ever owned. Seven or eight years ago I thought a nice laptop was one like a 17" VAIO which even had a Blu-Ray burner and an expansive full HD 1080p screen.
Summary: Would have given it 3 or 4 stars until I discovered that I cannot re-image it from a backup image. Need a re-image? Right now, all I see is recovery from the built-in backup - plus about six man hours to rebuild the system to what it was before recovery.
Summary: I bought this laptop off of ebay, a refurbished model. It's what I'm typing this review on, in fact. And I have to say, it is one of the best laptops I've had in a while. The main reason I bought this ultrabook instead of others was the upgradeability.
Summary: I like this Zenbook a lot ..everything about it is as expected.. The brightness of the screen changes all the time and I have yet to figure out why or how to correct it,,when it is bright it is great but then it will just get dimmer.
