1 out of 5 eggsExpired Less Then One Month After Warranty Did

Pros: This laptop did exactly what I needed it to do while it was running, and was an excellent value for the price.

Cons: The laptop died less then one month after the warranty expired, apparently due to some kind of hardware failure. It was working fine the day before, and the next day would not boot.

Other Thoughts: Had the laptop not died as unexpectedly as it did this would have been a 5 egg review. I live in a rural area with no one available locally to fix.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for the positive comment. I apologize if the system failed to bootup suddenly. Please verify if the AC adapter was properly connected from the laptop to a working surge protector or AC outlet and the power button is being pressed all the way down to trigger a power on signal. Also, please try to disconnect the AC adapter and let the unit drain for 24 hours to reset and clear the memory. After doing this, please reconnect your AC adapter then power on the unit. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3777850 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

3 out of 5 eggsMediocre

Pros: Responsive touch screen, boots quickly, wireless seems pretty stable (so far)

Cons: Spacebar is unusable: like terribly bad. You must press it in the exact center in order for it to register.

Battery life is just okay.

Other Thoughts: This spacebar issue is not an isolated one: other reviews mention it as well. However, it makes the laptop nearly unusable for my wife. I expected better from ASUS, as I've had good luck with their components in the past.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sean C.,

It's great knowing that the laptop is good overall. I do understand your concern regarding the issue with the spacebar. The spacebar is not touch-sensitive, it requires a little pressure or force in order to response accordingly. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3600169 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Cons: No optical drive, but I don't need one anyways.

3 out of 5 eggsPoor packaging

Pros: Just to be clear this review is not of the item itself. I was really looking forward to get this laptop. It came extremely poor packaged. Single brown box with laptop in a plastic bag and 2 flimsy foam holders. The PS brick was thrown in the box on the side. The bow came in with a hole on the side. when I opened it I found that the hole was on the side where the PS adapter was tossed in. There were few dents on that side (screen hinge). Started a claim with Newegg. Will update once resolved.

Cons: NA

Other Thoughts: NA

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little laptop!

Pros: Small, touch screen, Windows 8 x64, UEFI BIOS, Gigabit lan, VT, Hyper Threading, well built with aluminium shell, no dead pixels

Cons: Memory soldered, SSD soldered, 1 available memory slot for expansion, wireless N (not AC), HDD is slow to hell...Had to update the BIOS from 207 to 210, battery life is poor.

Other Thoughts: Got this laptop for $279 after $100 rebate. I switched the HDD against a SSD Crutial 240GB 7mm and reinstall the OS from scratch to remove bloatwares. Now it is flying (takes about 3 sec to boot up). Touch screen is nice and working well, audio is good. I ordered a 8GB memory stick to upgrade to 12GB even though the limit seems to be 8GB, we'll see.

So far I love it!

3 out of 5 eggsGood...except keyoard

Pros: Everything runs well for the price

Cons: The space bar is very unresponsive on the keyboard. I'm almost positive that this is a design flaw on the part of ASUS. In order to space, you must press VERY firmly in the center...meaning not the sides orthishappens. If you have to do alot of typing, this will be very problematic.

5 out of 5 eggsA STEAL!!!

Pros: I wasn't sure what to expect buying a refurbished laptop so I was taking a gamble. But I was pleasantly surprised to find it looked brand new. No scratches or fingerprints. It's a really sharp looking ultrabook. I like the touchscreen way more than I thought I would. I plan to change out the hybrid drive with an ssd. Battery life seems to be more than reviews say.

Cons: A little on the heavy side for an ultrabook.

Other Thoughts: For under 400$ this is a STEAL. I would suggest investing in an ssd to go along with it.
