4 out of 5 eggsThoughts

Pros: Windows 8 operates great with this touchscreen. Boot up is fast enough. This lap top is great for every day use. Thin and easy to carry. Does not heat up too much for now. Cools down very fast

Cons: Figured there would be no disc drive for being so thin. had problems with the mouse pads not being able to scroll with two fingers sometimes. Can't play much high graphic games on it! not a laptop for gamers.

Other Thoughts: Overall this laptop is great for every day normal use for work and school.

2 out of 5 eggsMcAfee Anti theft issue

Pros: Decent value for the price. Good basic laptop. Looks more expensive.

Cons: Well when it comes to hardware there is not much to say. You get what you pay for. The keyboard has a cheap feel to it. Bloatware included of course.

Other Thoughts: My main problem with this laptop is what's installed on it. It comes with the usual culprits like Office etc. The biggest issue was with McAfee Total Security plus Anti Theft (30 day trial version). I am used to removing bloatware but this was a mess.

After removing via Control Panel and running the McAfee removal tool I was greeted with a message about incomplete un-installation since the tool will not run if it detects Anti theft. It looks like there are left over McAfee services running. So after about 3 hours of manually removing McAfee registry keys and deleting folders I was finally able to remove all of it. Their forums are flooded with people posting about the same problem. The worst part is McAfee customer service does not exist.

I hope Asus reps will read this comment and maybe reconsider what bloatware is included

3 out of 5 eggsInterface annoyances

Pros: Laptop does not get hot, is very lightweight, and quiet. I enjoy the overall sleek/slim looks and aesthetics.

Cons: My biggest complaint of this laptop is the touchpad. I've owned three other laptops with touchpads, and never had this many issues.

Overall, the touchpad is way too sensitive. This causes two isues. One: the "buttons" on the touchpad are not physically separate; to left/right click you just push down on the lower areas of the same pad you use to maneuver. When I hover over a link, go to click it, the act of pushing down on the touchpad causes my cursor to move as I'm pressing it, usually causing me to click lower than intended. This may seem minor, but it becomes extremely annoying very quickly.

Note that I use this laptop for bot Windows and Linux OSs, so I am attributing my problems to the actual hardware and not the drivers/software of my system.

With windows, I was constantly accidentally resizing my screen, as the touchpad emulates the touchscreen; pinching or spreading your thumb/index on the touchpad inputs a resizing command. The problem is, the touchpad would "read" these inputs constantly when I never meant to input them. You can imagine the frustrations of simply reading webpages when you're constantly accidentally resizing the font.

The other issue is having the palms accidentally press the touchpad while typing. Again, I've owned three other laptops with touchpads, and never experienced this many problems, or had such extreme responses/consequences from accidentally touching an area on the touchpad while typing in a url or something.

Bottom line: either expect to have to customize the functionality of the pad, or use a separate mouse.


The other issue, though less noticeable, is the keyboard responsiveness. I have sometimes "missed" pressing a key due to being too quick or more likely not pressing hard enough.


Lastly, the plug consists of a huge bulky block that connects to an outlet. Perhaps it's just the outlets in my house, but the plug usually hangs halfway out or completely falls out of the outlets due to the weight of the plug-block (sorry for incorrect terms).

Other Thoughts: When I bought the laptop, I just looked at the specs and price, as a demo wasn't available at the particular store I purchased it from. I really wish I had seen what an annoyance the touchpad causes before I made the purchase.

Perhaps I can use software/drivers to change the responsiveness of the pad, or just use a separate mouse.

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: As described - can't say a lot. Was an upgrade for the wife from a non-slim laptop, which was also a fairly base model (though of course much cheaper than this.) Runs medium-hot (not uncomfortable), is nice & slim; touchscreen is responsive. Build quality appears good. I like the charger: it doesn't protrude a lot from the side of the laptop like most, so should last longer before making the connector loose.

Cons: The top is a fingerprint magnet.

Other Thoughts: Can't remark on performance; it's undistinguished. Just like any other typical entry-level slimbook.
