Pros: Fast, reliable, easy install, good price considering others in its class.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I came across these mSATA drives a little over a year ago and have been amazed with them ever since I had my Intel NUC boot windows 7 in under 20sec. I picked up a raid card and popped two of these bad boys in it and it's amazing, almost 1tb of space and it is lightening fast. Still have 2 empty slots which I going to fill with two more of these at well. For some reason every benchmark I have used has tested these faster than the Samsung drives I own. mSATA is the way of the future, just need to get the rest of the world to realize how amazing these chips really are.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Boots quick, light, can put what you want on (though may not run), great battery charge
Cons: Windows 8, touchscreen iffy at best, not nearly enough power
Other Thoughts: It took 5 tries to get windows 8 upgraded (kept saying it there was a mistake and froze. Required a complete reinstall), most games I want to run are hindered to a small square on the screen because of two choices in screen resolution. Don't let the full windows 8 fool you, in app mode it works great, desktop mode lags, crashes, and is an all round crummy experience. Still one of the better tabs I have owned.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It was fast, and had an easy hard drive change
Cons: Ram not upgradable, came with windows 8, spilled a little water on the keyboard and it fried.
Other Thoughts: I picked mine up here refurbished in the spring for using while on the road, a couple days after the warranty expired, sitting at a coffee shop and someone bumps the table. A little bit of water splashes down onto the keyboard so I shut down the computer as quickly as I could. Let the computer dry out in warm room face down for 24 hours and go to start it up. I have the flashing green light but that's it. Wait another 24 hours and then nothing. I will admit that dumping a bottle of water is excessive but not the mouthful that fell on this thing. My Dell survived half a coffee and still works fine, you'd think Asus would be better than Dell in every way. I still swear by Asus with their desktop hardware, just a little unsure about the durability of their laptops.READ FULL REVIEW
