2 out of 5 eggsNice design, but firmware is buggy

Pros: Nice hardware, lots of features, well built

Cons: Firmware/Win 8 integration is buggy, including touchpad, bluetooth, and SSD

Other Thoughts: I have been a fan of ASUS for a while. They've had some great products, but this one was half-baked, at least on the software side. The physical unit is nice and sturdy, and it has a nice feature set at a great price, but it has not been reliable. The touchpad has always been buggy. My daughter (owner) learned from a friend how to just shut down the driver and let it restart to clear up the problem. She does that once an hour or so. Now it has started booting extremely slowly and BSOD'ing with a driver power state failure which seems related to a bluetooth driver. I will keep looking for solutions, since the unit has promise. It just needs a lot of attention to keep it running in anything like a stable state, and that's just a non-starter. I should have known when they only provide a 3-month warranty.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS fan and continued support. I certainly understand your concern regarding the issue with the touchpad. Please allow some time to get use to the multi-touch function of the pad. In order to improve the touchpad responsiveness and stability, please install all recommended WINDOWS Update. Also, try updating the ASUS Smart Gesture utility and try to configure the touchpad within the application. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140921694 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

4 out of 5 eggsUpgraded and happy

Pros: Great footprint
sexy metallic finish inside and out
Easy to take apart to upgrade
Thin and feels solid
Most Ultrabooks at this size and weight dont have an optical drive. This does

Cons: Wouldnt mind thinner
No touchscreen though to be truthful, I find them to be unnecessary and prefer without them
Wish it could accommodate over 8gb of RAM

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a refurb and immediately upped the RAM to 8gb, then swapped the hdd out for a 512gb SSD. The machine rocks right now. I wish I could upgrade to 16gb of RAM, but this motherboard may be able to read it but not use it. At this point, I have a few $100 worth of upgrades on my machine, but it was cheap enough to begin with and the upgrades make it kind of a rock star. The metal finish on the outside and the inside definitely impart a very high end look and feel.

Manufacturer Response:
