great design, average performance, terrible touchpad

Summary: The Asus Zenbook looks very stylish and professional. I'm very pleased with its design, love the matte screen. Though, it is a little slow in running programs. The thing that annoys me the most is the touch pad, which does not always work. sometimes the mouse just stop working. sometime I can use the two fingers to zoom in/out, or go up/down but not always. that is pretty terrible for a brand new laptop after a day of use.
Summary: I've always liked the Zenbook format (it's a pretty blatant Macbook Air rip-off, but there's nothing wrong with ripping off a good thing), but didn't have enough need for a personal laptop to spend the money on a new one (even the cheaper models). I have a beef personal workstation, a company-issued laptop, a personal tablet and personal smartphone. A personal laptop was very much a "want" and not a "need".
Summary: I purchased this laptop because it is one of the few on the market with an IPS screen - it's about as close as you can get to the Mac Retina display and I just have too much PC software to move to a Mac. I found this one to be reasonably priced because it wasn't geared to gamers as much as the other IPS display models.Since I am a wedding photographer, I wanted a laptop that could handle Photoshop & Lightroom, but also had a fairly decent hard drive.
Summary: Included NIC is only 100Mbit, wireless seems to be 802.11g speed. Shuts down once in a while out of the blue after running about 5 minutes. Nice screen. Keyboard kinda sucks, tends to not register keystrokes unless you type slowly. Price paid seems a bit steep for the result.
Summary: Length:: 5:54 Mins I've been using the Asus ux32vd for about a year now. I mainly use it for video editing in Adobe CC, with the ram and SSD hard drive upgrade it's been a great laptop to use. The 1GB NVIDIA Geforce GT 620M can be used to take advantage of Adobe's Mercury playback engine, this really boosts rendering, effects, and playback.
Summary: I chose the 5 star rating because this computer has been absolutely fantastic! I bought it in the mind to do both college assignments, work, and game, and it has not given me one ounce of trouble!
