Pros: Was Bought one for use with my company.
Far too many good things here:
-Smaller than Macbook Air 13
-As powerful as macbook pro 13
-Raid 0 worked out of box
-1440p IPS panel is indescribably beautiful and clear.
- i7 4558u is best in class for a 13 inch chassis
-When running intensive tasks fans are dead quiet
-Speakers surprisingly loud/clear for 13 inch chassis
-Asus software minimal and mostly useful
The REALLY good things:
-Touchpad is good and the asus software is a benefit to windows 8
- Keyboard is easy to use, especially considering form factor
-Panel is bright and works well in all environments
Overall a beautiful and powerful ultrabook. It sets a very high standard for not only the quality of a computer, but the amount of power we can expect in a 13 inch form factor.
Cons: Not even cons list:
-Battery life is good but not amazing, which is still impressive given the 28w TDP of the chip used in this laptop.
-Web cam is average
Pros: Fast and powerful.

Lenovo did a hell of a job putting this thing together, it not only has the hardware but a lot of little embellisments like the speakers and the case that just make it perfect.
Cons: Only cons I can think of are very minor:
Trackpad is decent but not great and it is off center.
Some of the buttons are small and oddly placed but its just something to get used to.
Other Thoughts: As mentioned before this thing does not get that hot at all. Lenovo has done an excellent job with this one. Even while gaming it stays decently cool.
ALSO: They don't give which gt 555m it is so I'll list that.
Clock speed: 735mhz
1GB DDR5 Vram
128 bit memory bus
Pros: Used to upgrade my brothers computer from a 256mb 8600gt. Doubled performance for him for nice and cheap. WoW and LoL play great now. Can handle 30 fps on 1600x900 on ultra settings, turn off shadows and a few things and it gets a steady 40-50 fps
Cons: Not the powerhouse of the low end like the 5670 but mine only cost me $60
Other Thoughts: Gets a bit hot but not really close to overheating. This in a case with exactly 1 100mm fan.READ FULL REVIEW
