Perfect

I love this laptop so far. This is my first touch screen PC so I still have hard time using it as proficient as my old PC, but touch screen is the trend, better to know it now than late. ASUS have great reputation, in ASUS I trust.

Not an impressive ultrabook

I got this laptop (April 2013 from Adorama.com)for normal school purposes. When you open the box you will impress by the design of the device. The setup was easy and fast. After few days I noticed that when I plugin the outlet, the mouse cursor jumps around the screen and make it impossible to work with the laptop. Since the laptop was BRAND new I asked my apartment management to send me an electrician. After having four electrician says this is not the apartment faulty wiring, I contacted

I got this laptop (April 2013 from Adorama.com)for normal school purposes. When you open the box you will impress by the design of the device. The setup was easy and fast. After few days I noticed that when I plugin the outlet, the mouse cursor jumps around the screen and make it impossible to work with the laptop. Since the laptop was BRAND new I asked my apartment management to send me an electrician. After having four electrician says this is not the apartment faulty wiring, I contacted the ASUS customer service to send my laptop for repair. I only used the laptop for 18 days. Beside the electrical problem, laptop shut itself down two times while I was working, also the Sonic Master speaker got noisy in the 18 days of moderate use. I sent the laptop to ASUS on 05/15/2013 via UPS and they got the package on 05/23/2013 and still(05/28/2013) working on the laptop. When I'm checking for RMA progress, there is no information on the website and the customer service rep also does not give you any useful information. To sum it up, since almost 40 days ago when I purchased the laptop, I only used a faulty laptop for 18 days! The only good part was the shopping experience with adorama.com which was fast and easy. This was just a brief of what I have been through, there is lot more to say. I also have video of all the problems that I experience with this laptop.

Good computer, short battery life

By

Used mainly to access web away from home. Screen size is a good compromise between readability and portability. Speed is good, boot up time is short. Keyboard is handy and easy to use. Touch screen is usually a handy tool, especially with Win 8, but it can sometimes act oddly, sending the screen to places no one asked for with just a minor miscue. Battery life is short, needs recharge after only about 2 or 3 hours of usage.

Questions about this item:

william j  Does this 14.1 touch screen ultrabook include a DVD player ? Thanks. William J
SEPEHR S  No it does not have DVD player. I had a very bad experience with this device. My laptop was defective the moment I got it. I send it back to ASUS they did not fix it and just sent it back to me. Had to contact the customer service many times (at least 40-50 email and phone calls) to fix my laptop. Long story short, I purchased my laptop on April 23rd and till today (July 4th) only used my laptop for about 1 month! for the rest of the time it has been traveling back and forth and still at this moment I am answering your question with my DELL laptop because I have not got the ASUS back from the second round of repair yet. You can check out my videos on youtube about this laptop: look for user "17seper"
william j  Really appreciate your valuable comments. William

Fiona K  can you upgrade the ram ?
ERIC N  Yes. I added a 4 GB module to mine to bring it to 8 GB. (The onboard RAM is soldered but there is one expansion slot.) Taking off the bottom cover is puzzling, since you have to unsnap the cover after removing the screws. Look on YouTube for a how to video.
