4 out of 5 eggsDecent notebook, but could be a LOT better with a few tweaks.

Pros: Light, thin, nice display, simple design.

Cons: -The battery life on this laptop is absolutely atrocious. I haven't gotten more than 3 hours out of this thing, even with Power4Gear installed. And this is after installing a fresh, clean copy of Windows without all the ASUS garbage.
- Way too much bloatware. You guys don't need to add software and tools that do things Windows can do just fine on its own. This is, unfortunately, a lesson that manufacturers will never learn. You build a machine with decent specs, then completely hose it with unnecessary software that kills performance right out of the box.
- No Bluetooth support. I know it's a budget machine, but given the fact you only get 2 USB ports, BT would be nice to maximize the number of devices you can connect to it.
- The touchpad is cheap, requires hard pressure for multi-gestures, and feels too hollow underneath. Add some extra support below it so it feels more solid. There is a lot of empty space inside this thing that could be filled with added plastic framework to add strength and reduce that "cheapy" feel. This would probably help the keyboard, too.

Other Thoughts: This is a great laptop for simple work tasks, e-mail, photo management, and other home office functions.

I fired it up for a few minutes out of the box just to make sure everything worked, then immediately yanked the drive and replaced it with a Samsung EVO SSD with a fresh install of Windows 7. The machine is incredibly quick and smooth now.

Unfortunately, the battery life is extremely poor, so I'll try to find an upgrade or replacement down the road.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop for the Money

Pros: Gesture touchpad (i can scroll with two fingers up and down or side to side, 2 finger tap=right click)
boots fast
youtube video playback is good
love the number pad
keyboard is large enough that i can type my usual WPM
USB 3.0 bueno
Good at multitasking without lag. Was installing office, browsing tumblr, zipping files, and playing a youtube video (which will be about as hard as the laptop will ever work for me as I use my desktop PC for gaming) and it performed above my expectations

Cons: None so far. Will update if I find anything.

Other Thoughts: If you know how to use a computer, and were educated before buying it (know what specs you want for the use you plan on), this is a great laptop. Windows 8 sucks, so I put a Classic Shell start button on here to have a start menu. Would buy again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood notebook

Pros: Great speed. Has VGA port. It has all the necessary ports needed. Really enjoying! But see cons...

Cons: The keyboard is less than basic. No lights for you to notice out of the corner of your eye to make sure your numlock or capslock key is off. I'm a trained typist. Generally I don't look at the keyboard while typing. I activated the ASUS On-screen display notifications and still no num or capslock notification. I contacted ASUS support and they told me to read the manual. I already read the manual. Basically they don't care!

Touchpad is clunky too!

Other Thoughts: I would have returned this notebook because of the KEYBOARD, but I missed the return deadline.

As it stands if I have a lot of work to do on it, I connect a regular keyboard, when I am in the right place.

4 out of 5 eggsExactly As Described

Pros: Responsive
Screen Size
Decent graphics for Integrated Card

Cons: Battery Life

Other Thoughts: This computer is exactly what the description implies; a budget model Windows 8 machine. For everyone complaining that they didn't know it was Windows 8 or they don't like Windows 8, well, you should have either read the description better or done a little research. Anyway, right out of the box I started the upgrade to 8.1, which took about 2 1/2 hours start to finish.

There was quite a bit less bloatware on here than previous reviews would have led me to believe, so that was a bonus as well as I didn't have much to remove. The machine is very responsive with every task I give it; from powering up the machine to logging on is generally less than 10 seconds.

The graphic display is better than expected as well with the Intel HD graphics. I only play a couple of games but performance is more than acceptable even on the highest settings.

The only problem I have with this computer is the battery life. Even just web surfing or doing non-graphic intensive tasks, 3 hours is pushing it. I knew coming in that it wasn't a large battery, but for a portable machine you should expect a better effort. (This is what cost this machine 5 stars.)

Overall I'd say it's a wonderful machine that's worthy of a look. I'm not a big gamer so I don't think the latest, most graphic intensive titles would work on here, but casual gaming should be just fine. Web surfing, email, document preparation, this is the perfect machine.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for the positive comment. I certainly understand your concern regarding the battery charged life. In order to improve or prolong the battery charged time, please drain it completely then charge it fully without using the system. Once full-charged, please use the system, without the AC adapter connected, and drain it completely. Please repeat the charging process thereafter. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N141231927 on the subject line.
Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel
