5 out of 5 eggsreturned

Pros: Great machine best buy for the money- Very powerful

Cons: had a problem getting Windows 7 to dual boot - a frustrating 3 days.
Returned to New Egg just could not live with it- It was heavy and large. Still a great machine.

Other Thoughts: Should have done more research on the size and weight before purchasing.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome for Windows

Pros: the capabilities you get for the cost are very good. Very much enjoy the touch screen capabilities, very nice and portable.

Also enjoy the design, many complain about the weight, but i find it to be quite bearable. It's a nice machine that sort of bridges the gaps between a traditional notebook and an ultrabook.

Cons: Based upon how it was advertised, I didn't realize that it uses hybrid graphics. There is the on-board intel graphics chip and the separate nvidia chip. This is great for an OS like Windows because it helps conserve battery power.

It sucks for Linux users because that sort of technology simply isn't fully supported yet, so you end up having to do a bit of extra work to be able to use the nvidia card at all (it detects the intel chip by default first).

I had planned on making this a dual boot, but instead decided to just keep Windows 8 and use Oracle's VirtualBox to run a virtual Xubuntu.

4 out of 5 eggsSleek and Shiny Laptop

Pros: Sleek
Earphones/Microphones 2-in-1 Jack
Good rubber feet
Boot Time about 17-30 seconds
Quiet
Good for most games
Equipped with Nvidia
Responsive Touchscreen

Cons: A bit heavy
Very reflective screen
Sound isn't loud enough
Resolution isn't very high
One of the Asus keys are next to the backspace

Other Thoughts: If your touchscreen doesn't always work when you turn it on, turn it off and send it back in for an exchange. My touchscreen didn't always work when I got mine but I didn't know it was a defect. It seems to be a common thing with Asus having their touchscreens not working properly for their touch screen laptops.

4 out of 5 eggsASUS V551LB-DB71T

Pros: great battery life, really thin, pretty fast, the touchscreen is a cool feature that works well with windows 8.

Cons: windows 8 is very different, If you use chrome for your browser it does not allow you to stream music and then pan to different things such as, Microsoft word or different apps. the sound is horrible and very quiet, I did not pay attention that it didn't have an HD display

Other Thoughts: The windows 8.1 update did some good, but still is not the windows 7 people know and love, I have had problems downloading software and i'm still not sure what to do differently to get it to work. Also, you can get around the not being able to stream music bug by using internet explorer, this is okay but i prefer chrome. overall a good laptop with some minor cons
