Asus Ultrabook is a Deal 12/10/2012
1) The aluminum body is very nice. Yes, it attracts fingerprints, but I will take the sturdy feel/lighter weight any day.
2) Core i3 runs cool (keyboard and body barely warm to the touch)
3) Asus desktop is decent. It mimics desktops most are used to seeing.
4) Thin and still has a DVD player.
5) It is not an ultrabook in size, but in weight it is.
6) I gave it 4 eggs, but really it deserves 4.5.
1) Needs another 4 GB RAM to really be awesome, but I find it runs very well with 4GB in transferring hundreds of pictures while surfing and watching Youtube.
2) Not sure exactly how to access the small SSD, but I have not read the manual or looked much into it. Been budy transferring my wife's old HDD to it.
For $500, I thought it was a great deal for what you get. I don't think you can find a better laptop for that price (I looked).
