This review is from: ASUS UX31A-R5102F-B Intel Core i5 3317U (1.70GHz) 4GB Memory 128GB SSD 13.3" Ultrabook, Grade B Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Pros: Screen resolution is 1920x1080. Ivy Bridge CPU. SSD is fast.
Cons: The laptop arrived with scratches and dents throughout the body. On the lid, on the bottom, and on the sides. The feet are worn and show a considerable amount of use. The screen itself has excessive backlight bleeding on all sides of the screen. There is a big white dead pixel center/bottom-right. There is also screen damage, like a splotchy faded white spot about 4 inches from the right and 5 inches from the top. It's only about 3mmx4mm so it's not huge, but it is noticeable. It also arrived with Windows 8 instead of Windows 7. Furthermore, it said the Windows Serial was already in use when I finished setting up the PC.
Other Thoughts: I've purchased ASUS components for my custom built PC for years. I've never had quality issue with their video cards or motherboards. After this purchase, I think I'm going to play it safe and stay away from ASUS completely. I would never recommend this laptop to anyone. Stay clear!
