Love this Laptop so far even if I am behind the curve!
18 September 2014
Summary: I was deciding between this and the newer Asus ux303 with the Nvidia card, and decided to go with this older model for a few reasons. I saw a few preliminary reviews of people complaining about the QHD screen or whatever comes on the UX303 (mustardy yellows like Lenovo Yoga, as well as scaling issues with the high res). I plan to upgrade to a 512gb SSD some day far in the future so didn't feel like paying extra for the 256gb SSD right off the bat.
Summary: I got this laptop about 3 months ago for my birthday. I know that it's the older model, but we couldn't find any other laptops that fit my specifications (at least 500 GB storage + dedicated graphics + ultrabookness). I have to say, this laptop did everything I wanted and more. I can play Skyrim on it (low resolution, but Skyrim's low resolution looks like some other games' high) at a pretty good speed. I didn't notice any lag, even while fighting.
Summary: This laptop is great. The fact that it's got upgradable components is fantastic. I immediately upgraded my 4gigs of ram to 10 gigs. it's fast and has an operating battery life of around 5 hrs based on my usage. Standby battery is WAY long. I haven't charged it in almost 3 weeks. The only complaint I would have is that it feels like they went a little too thin on the frame.
Summary: Great computer, really light, good screen, fast and comfortable. The only flaw I've felt is the lack of the numpad because I can't make extra symbols using ALT codes, which is REALLY annoying and also it's a very dumb flaw (other computers have the numpad using the fn key).
Summary: So far, it has been a very solid computer. Solid wifi, nice screen, no issues typing. I also received 6gb of ram. I don't like windows 8. I intend to install arch linux as a replacement as soon as my ssd arrives, so hopefully I will remember to update this review and let you all know how that goes. I have heard it runs ubuntu just fine, but I don't like that either :P Oh, and it handles visualization (virtual box) nicely, no need to change any bios settings.
Summary: I was looking for a slim, light weight laptop and this fits the bill. I also wanted Windows 7 as I have already sent back a computer that came with Windows 8 which I hated. This computer is quick and easy to use. It also has a very clear display as well as backlit keys which are awesome. The sound is much better on this laptop than any other I have had. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that it does not have a DVD player/function.
Summary: pros Come on, compare to the everyone-has-it apple, Asus zenbook is a comparable product, if you are looking for a light, cool, and well-quipped device. Whatever windows 8 is criticized, windows 7 can fulfill most of your needs for processing. This light computer saves me a lot of energy in carrying and the battery power lasts. All of this comes with half price of a comparable Mac pro. Okay, the cons 1. the i3 cpu may not be as fast, 2.
