Pros: Unique features, good to use as a tablet, great to use as an ultrabook, classy and futuristic design, nice pouch, Wacom pen, bright screen, backlit keyboard, lightweight, portable, good technical support team, responsive touchscreen.
Cons: I'm an Asus fanboy and use Asus for all PC hardware, and that's why I have to be critical. The screen surface SUCKS. Its not Gorilla. Its some flexible and cheap feeling. They didn't even bother putting any anti-reflective coating found on flagship smartphones starting with a S. As a result, this thing is an oil magnet. But worst of all, no matter what I wipe the screen with, it leaves permanent swirl marks. I used the highest quality clothes and eyeglass cleaning solutions, still more permanent swirls. The included cleaning cloth was even worse, it caused the most swirls. Its becoming a cloudy and swirly mess. Did I get a dud? I would like to hear from Asus on how to clean this screen. The ultrabook wakes up from sleep very quickly but the touchscreen does not. It flashes 3 times very very slowly and then stays on. As a result, the total amount of time to be able to use it from sleep is a long time. My Acer Aspire S3 wakes up much faster than that. This thing gets very hot in tablet mode because the designer thought it was a good idea to put the vents underneath the screen when closed so it can barely breathe. Lastly I'll nitpick about how wide the border is and how terrible windows 8 is for touchscreen in 1080p 11.6" everything in desktop mode is so tiny. Metro mode is decent but lacking in so many areas compared to Android.
Other Thoughts: Asus, just tell me how to get rid of these permanent swirls. They won't go away.READ FULL REVIEW
