Pros: Beautiful HiDPI display (retina) 2880x1620 with amazing viewing angles and deep true colors. Excellent design by Asus on their zenbook, very slim and comfortable. The keyboard is one of the best I have ever typed on and it includes a full numpad. Best combination of size (15.6", ultraportable, and lightweight), power (i7 processor, 2gb gt650M), display (hiDPI), and battery life out there currently (July 2013).
Cons: Not many, performs excellently in almost every facet. If I had to complain the first would be the price, very expensive... the second would be that the battery life is NOT 7hours as advertised. I would put it at around 3.5hrs during normal use, but in battery saver or lower screen brightness you can extend that upwards of 5 hours, but that is usually plenty of time between charges.
Other Thoughts: If this laptop had the new Haswell processor it would be hands down a 5egg and extremely recommended.
Needs the new Haswell for the extended battery life, and would be nice to have the newer 700 series geforce vid card.
It is expensive but you get what you are paying for, an ultraportable, ultra powerful, and ultra beautiful display. Nothing like it on the market right now. (although I expect that to change rapidly come Q4 of this year)
