Pros: This is the perfect PC for browsing, working, media, battery life, price and more. It has a very smoothe looking, but small (for a pc) touchscreen (11.6 inches) but still larger than any tablet.
Of COURSE its not a powerhouse Crysis 3 pc... but then, who cares. Its a laptop that easily surpasses 3 hours of battery life with hard use and 85% brightness on battery. Hdmi output is 720p, but with an upscaling t.v. you wont notice. (most have this)
I use this daily, alongside my phones tethered internet, to be able to do anything (literally) besides high end gfx processing, autocad type work or high end (most new) video games.
Its so small and light that anyone can bring it along with them anywhere without being burdened. Of course, 2 gigs of ram and a dual core 1.5 is not blazing fast by any means, but the sleek Asus design and some of the apps like InstantON, really make it worth it.
Asus' design on this one is better than the new models. the new ones are all multi toned, with sweat unfriendly palm rests. I am an avid pc user who is on a computer 8 hours for work and minimum of 1-3 more even on leisurely days.
Truth be told, for 85% of peoples lifestyles/needs this pc and its specs will perform just fine (provided u dont have 200 browse rwindows and photoshop open at the same time)
The touchpad is very nice, but make sure you configure the options for the touchpad to best suit your feel. ( i disabled every option including tap to click, so i could roll my finger around on the pad and keep my left index on the clicker.; realistically, this is an issue with ANY touchpad/win8 friendly touch pad")
The touch capabilities are nice on the side... nothing primary, but always good to have as another means to navigate/play. I use this for Magic 2014, and other low end gfx games... all my work from home, mostly anything... ( besides cd burning)
I also have an i7, 6gb, 1gb video Dell Studio that i use at home for any serious gaming/permanently tethered to my T.V. So I do know/have owned a more powerful pc, which makes my opinions more relevant. I use computers all day for like 10 years plus.
Cons: Being an ultra/netbook this thing has no disk drive. =D So plan ahead for that. You "Can not" upgrade/change the battery or ram yourself, so dont bother trying to open the case.
Other Thoughts: Ignore the 5 reposted bad reviews by one user "Bud" who clearly does not know his feet from his hands, and must not be able to use any computer properly let alone this one.
If youre a heavy pc user (serious gfx, games etc) you may want to go for a model with more ram/processer/video card... but DONOT be surprised if that pc is way below 2 hours worth of battery life when actually being used, and of course being considerably more expensive.
ive noticed, people buy laptops like they buy cars. They spend more than they should, for features and speed they dont even have the ability/time/space to use and always want the fanciest look for cheapest.
Reality check; You dont need 450 torque to drive to work in the city.
Have a nice day

Pros: So light, so smoothe and absolutely stunning. Asus are the champs.... 3200 dpi max, and you can drop it to 800 for precision. I love this mouse.
