ASUS UX31LA-US51T Ultrabook Intel Core i5 4200U (1.60 GHz) 128 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4400 Shared memory 13.3

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: For the price paid, I get a 1080p screen, backlit keyboards, touchscreen, an ultrabook form factor, long battery life and nearly flawless compatibility with my Linux installation (openSUSE Tumbleweed). Using a Torx 5 screw to explore the innards, I discovered there was an additional empty slot for an M.2 compatible SSD drive. As with all of the ASUS products I have had the pleasure to own, much of the hardware is easily upgradeable and replaceable. Getting this during a Flash sale made the deal all the more sweeter.

Cons: The brightness keys are still not working out of the box for ASUS laptops running Linux. Some of the function keys no longer serve any purpose because they also don't work out of the box.

Other Thoughts: ASUS makes very good hardware for the price. A shame they don't offer Linux out of the box with their mainstream offerings. But overall, I am very pleased with the hacker-friendly hardware design ASUS has shown so far, and will probably continue to buy ASUS products as long as that philosophy remains intact.

Pros: Works as expected. No fuss no hassles on my Kubuntu 14.04 setup. Also tried it on a Windows machine without issue as well.

Cons: There is a bit of a lag sometimes. But that's probably due to the budget laptop in use.

Timbuk2 Especial Claro Cycling Laptop Messenger Hammered Cobalt - Nylon Ripstop 199-6-4068 Up to 15  Inches --- M
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Plenty of room for laptops, books and documents. Works as advertised in rain.

Cons: Does not have soft lining for gentle storage of smartphones or tablets, unlike Timbuk2's other backpacks.

Other Thoughts: Bought this during a flash sale, would not have spent money on it otherwise as I already own a Timbuk2 backpack.
