4 out of 5 eggsGood, simple laptop

Pros: Touch screen, gesture mouse (see other), full keyboard, Intel i5 processor, quick boot PRICE!

Cons: No Bluetooth, no optical drive (given, it's an ultrabook), 4gb RAM, basic graphics (intel gfx acceleration), unreliable touch pad drivers.

Other Thoughts: I first purchased this through newegg's e-b-a-y site (TERRIBLE IDEA, NEVER DO THIS) because they had sold out of their black Friday sale. It was a massive mess, avoid newegg's automated e-b-a-y system, and their support was worse. After speaking with a support manager, they finally offered to price match it on their site IF it came back.

Anyway, when I finally did purchase and receive it, I was actually impressed. It could use a little more battery (4hr avg), but it is light weight, and very portable, without sacrificing size. The touch pad MUST have the latest drivers, I had lots of problems with it not seeing gestures, but the latest update fixed everything. I also put 8GB of RAM in this, it is now pretty unstoppable, and runs really fast. The fast boot is really nice, from sleep is ~5s, with minimal programs running. I was disappointed that this didn't come with Bluetooth, but am looking into swapping the wireless card so it will. I have not had any issues with the wireless card, despite what others have mentioned. I have however seen other similar models have touch screen problems, similar to the touch pad problems I have had. The built-in graphics leave room for improvement, but are capable of running simple games, on low settings, if nothing else is running, but that is not the purpose of this notebook.

Overall, I would buy this little guy again. It is really convenient to have, and extremely portable. You really can't find a better price for a touchscreen laptop, especially with an i5.

3 out of 5 eggsBad Wireless

Pros: Nice size, good display, touch screen,

Cons: The wireless card (Atheros Qualcomm adapter) is junk. I will replace it as soon as I'm confident the lap top won't need to go to Asus for warranty work.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible experience

Pros: Metal frame. Quiet. Fast. Good looking.

Cons: Win 8 is anti-humanity. Very heavy. And now the touchpad stopped recognizing any multiple finger gestures.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't start for the first time. Sent it back to newegg and they sent it back after almost a month by ground shipping, when I deserve 2 day shipping as a member for shop2runner. During the entire return process I NEVER get prompt response within 24 hrs like they promised. It was a good deal during thanksgiving, but if I need something important, I'll skip newegg.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -great use of touchscreen technology
-light and compact it fits well in my pull-string sports bag
-dropped it a couple times (not too bad) and it's still kickin
-no useless ports. Not that it has every type of port, but they put the right ones in. Very glad it has a vga on it so I can connect to the tv.
-have had not problem with any games I play (this is not a gaming system, but it plays league of legends w/o a hitch). You can even use the touch screen to game effectively with a few modifications to the key bindings.
-I use this for work while traveling and the keyboard is great (not cramped at all)
-good battery life, but careful about apps running in the background or it'll be dead in no time
-well designed mouse pad except that with windows 8.1 if I don't restart it every couple days the 2-finger mouse scrolling function doesn't work. After the restart and update it works fine again.
-bottom line: I would 100% recommend this to anyone. It's the whole package. Very well designed.

Cons: -sad that there's no dvd burner, but it's thinner and lighter as a result
-battery indicator is somewhat inaccurate/unpredictable, just assume you're going to get 4-5 hours out of it (sometimes it says you'll get 8) depending on usage

Other Thoughts: This laptop is a great platform for Windows 8. Being a mouse and keyboard windows user since the 95 days, I'm not too comfortable going full tablet with windows 8, but the touchscreen makes it very comfortable to navigate after a couple days of feeling mentally impaired as I waived my hands around on the screen. Upgrade to windows 8.1 on this thing. You can thank me later.

-the most I'd pay for it is $600... I got it for $450 on Black Friday and for THAT price I consider it more than a steal

2 out of 5 eggsGood HW, possible gotchas

Pros: Solid case, OK keyboard, good specs, excellent touchscreen, great value when I bought it. Reliably fast/good Newegg service.

Cons: McAfee/Intel Anti-theft preinstalled security SW is very difficult to remove (it has the ability to lock the computer, and is EOL by the vendor...). Please review forum postings on "Intel Anti-Theft" before buying this computer

Atheros wifi card has issues. Mine lost connection and needed restart (annoying; google for others' experiences) even with newest drivers. It is possible to replace with inexpensive and better Intel card

Other Thoughts: This is a good, inexpensive computer that could have been 4.5 eggs. Unfortunately, it came with a wifi card that had to be restarted daily, and obsolete anti-theft software. The anti-theft software is linked to he BIOS, and has the ability to lock the computer down. Given that it is end-of-lifed by the vendor (McAfee/Intel), I decided to remove it. This was a multiple-hour unpleasant operation requiring deep dives into forum postings. Luckily I was successful, but I came close to returning it a couple of times. Caveat emptor.

Oh, and 500 megabytes of Microsoft Updates before I could even upgrade to Windows 8.1 (another few hours). Not Asus' fault on this one...

1 out of 5 eggsNot recommended

Pros: It's a laptop and it's got a touchscreen. Woohoo! I mean having a laptop is way better than not having a laptop.

Cons: Honestly this is the slowest laptop I've ever owned. It can't handle more than one application/program running at the same time. Don't even bother. The internet connection is absolutely awful. I've tried it at various locations and it simply won't connect. My friends have other kinds of laptops and they don't have the same issues this does.

Other Thoughts: I'm returning it. I can't stand the processing speeds, lack of RAM, and awful internet connection. I held much higher standards of ASUS products until now. I bought it on sale for $450 and it's still not worth it.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: very light, thin and sleek touchscreen for a cheap price. speakers are very nice for an ultrabook.

Cons: came with windows 8, but since its touchscreen, it helps make windows 8 tolerable. the screen seems a bit sensitive to me, sometimes my fingers/palm hovers near the screen and it reads as if i'm touching the screen.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Laptop

Pros: Great small portable laptop for travel & trips. Small light weight, quiet, ram expandable to 8gb, touch screen, fast, boot time is 75% faster then my desktop, great use for a SSD drive, both wireless & wired nic connections, HDMI & VGA jacks.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I bought to it replace my 6 yr old HP full size laptop to use for vacations & interface with my clients PC's. The older HP became my client loaner. I took it to Walt Disney World on vacation the 1st of Dec. 2013 & it worked as expected. Contrary to some that say it's noisy; I sit right next to it & I can't hear it running. I have it on everyday!
