5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Laptop

Pros: Functional, lightweight, long battery life, slim, gorgeous, sturdy, great sound, superb screen, very fast

Cons: Keyboard could be a little better
Disk space a little constrained

Other Thoughts: This is an incredibly well-designed and well-executed laptop and I think an absolutely amazing value.

Laptops are of course very personal: everyone has a different need for battery life, screen size, disk space, power, weight, etc. But this laptop is a first-rate compromise on most of them.

Most of what you read in the reviews for the UX31 are correct. It is a indeed a stunning design - similar to a Macbook Air, though in some ways even better.

My recertified one, though b-grade b-stock, doesn't seem to have a mark anywhere on it. It comes with exactly four parts: the laptop, the power adapter (very small also!), and VGA and wired Ethernet dongles: As with all devices in this class there is no CD/DVD. Very little junk-ware. All fine by me.

You first will want to update the BIOS and the touchpad driver from the Asus site - it makes the touchpad much more user-friendly. You also will need to update the USB drivers - the USB3 port on mine would not start (yellow "!") until I did.

Also run Windows updates before doing much, especially if you're planning to upgrade to Pro or Ultimate. (It needed 87 updates.)

The keyboard has nice, large, square, aluminum keys, but doesn't have quite enough travel and if you don't press hard enough, keystrokes can go missing. But a pretty minor complaint overall.

It is fixed at 4GB RAM, non-expandable. The SSD is 128GB - not huge by today's standards, but really plenty for most typical uses. The drive is a standard, small SSD SATA cavity, and it could be upgraded if you really wanted to I believe. The SSD drive and Intel "Instant On" makes this one very fast device.

A lot seems to have been made in reviews that this only comes with a micro-HDMI video out (though there is a standard VGA dongle included). I really don't understand this complaint. Cables are available for 2-$5, and I'd far rather have HDMI than VGA. Anyway, this thing is so slim there's really no space for a VGA connector around the edge anyway.

I purchased with the 1-year protection warranty: I'd recommend that for any b-stock laptop. But I have no expectation I will need it.

So unless you're looking for a gaming laptop, large screen or disk, or some other particular need, this is a great laptop.
